So I'm on facebook and someone I don't know sends me a friend request. I accepted it to see if they're a friend of a friend or whatever... just because. They had their info all hidden till I accepted it. I accept it and it looks like they're from argentina. I asked them who they were and this is what ensued:

Me: Sooooo.... who are you?

Them: Disculpa que decís

Me: oh jeez... uhhh... habla englais? my spanish sucks... is that even spanish?

Them: No englais my argentine

Me: ¿Por qué envió usted una petición de amigo? (I went to some free translator site and typed in "why did you send friend request")

Them: No lo se

Anyone know what the hell we're talking about? I don't even know if it's spanish or portuguese or what... anyone help?

I think they said they wouldn't tell you who they were, then they said they don't speak English, they're Argentinian, then they did not understand what you put in your translation attempt.

"Yes it is because we do not use both so you do not use"

Yes, your spanish is terrible because we do not use the same Spanish as in Spain
I assume that's what he means to say.

thats what I was thinking. I've been using the "English to Spanish(Latin America)" thing, but still it's a ****ing longshot that it's even going to make sense.

Aye, I assume that Mexico, Uruguay and Argentinia use different spanish than each other anyway so it's not gonna be accurate. You can probably get the general idea of what he's saying by translating it though.

I put something like "Language barrier is hard. How did you find me?" and they said:
No hay barrera para la amistad todo en la vida suma aunque de pura suerte aprobé inglés con un nueve

or:

There is not barrier for the friendship all in the life adds although of pure luck I approved English with a nine...

The 1st half sounds kinda nice in a "hands across the ocean" sort of way

He seemed to be having as hard of a time trying to understand your english as you are trying to understand his spanish ! This is going to be a communication mess of fun!

Pretty much what guitarist64 said for the first part. As for the second bit, I think he was more trying to say your Spanish is terrible because you dont use both english and spanish. You know? You dont use Spanish a lot. Could be wrong. But hes not being very specific..about anything.

So this begs the question TS, what makes your name so notorious?

update us with more conversation fails, I laughed quite a bit with the OP

Also, good luck with trying to understand the way every spanish country speaks, for example, here we do not use "usted" but instead we use "tu", but in colombia saying "usted" is basically the norm.

If you need help with translating anything else.. just post it and I'll try to help... instead of doing the 3 page essay I should be doing
