you make me wanna speak spanish

 What is annoying me about Lúcio representation in Overwatch lately is this:

I saw it around here and on twitter non-brazilians cheering this small bit of Lore but for me it’s “Ah a stereotype”.

It’s just Blizzard sweeping under the rug they changed Lúcio nationality before the game released, because who knows? maybe they noticed they didn’t have any character that could represent Latin America.

I said it and I’ll say it again: He doesn’t represent Brazil. He doesn’t have any skins that ties to Brazil’s culture. BRAZIL’S CUTURE, NOT STEREOTYPES.

Yeah, soccer is a national sport, but you can’t tell a story about an entire nation through a sport. A sport that was brough here by a brazilan guy when he visited England back in 1800.

You simply cannot.

Then we have a bit of his background and his relationship with Symmetra that instead of cement who he is, actually make us look at his design with that feeling of “can’t relate”.

The reader is bilingual and Kara finds it really hot when she speaks in another language. Bonus points if the reader talks dirty in that language and it leads to some steamy make out sessions.

I don’t speak any other language, and Spanish is the only one I kind of know so I went with that. Sorry if it’s super botched, this is from Google translate.

“Y/N?” Kara asked you. You were in bed with her, about ready to go to sleep for the night.

“Yeah?” You responded, tiredly.

“Can I ask you something, and you promise not to laugh.”

You opened your eyes, suddenly more awake. “Yeah, ask me anything.”

“Could…Could you talk to me?”

“You want to talk?” You asked, confused. “Sure, what do you wanna talk ab-”

“No, I didn’t mean that. Could you speak to me… in Spanish?”

“You want me to…why?”

“I just… I like it.” Kara told you and she began to blush.

You were confused before you got the hint. You smirked and quirked an eyebrow. “¿Es eso así, Señorita Danvers?”

Kara smiled before shifting closer to you. “Yeah, like that.”

“No tienes ni idea de lo que estoy diciendo, ¿verdad?”

You shifted closer to Kara, as her blush got redder.

“Podría decirte lo que quiero hacer, y no tendrías ni idea.” You whispered.

“Te voy a besar ya sabes.” You did what you said you would, and leaned in to kiss her. You were kind of surprised when she immediately deepened the kiss. You broke away, and continued to tease her.

“Alguien se está divirtiendo.” You smirked. “Nos vamos a divertir mucho esta noche.”

“Just keep kissing me.” Kara said as she pulled you back to her.

This was gonna be a long night.


Translations in order:

¿Es eso así, Señorita Danvers? = Is that so Miss Danvers?
No tienes ni idea de lo que estoy diciendo, ¿verdad? = You have no idea what I’m saying, do you?
Podría decirte lo que quiero hacer, y no tendrías ni idea. = I can tell you what I’m going to do and you’d have no clue.
Te voy a besar ya sabes. = I’m going to kiss you now
Alguien se está divirtiendo = Someone’s having fun
Nos vamos a divertir mucho esta noche = We’re gonna have a lot of fun tonight

Why learn a new language and how?


Before all, this is oficially my first post and I’m so freaking excited and crossing my fingers hoping you all like it skfhlkdjdlfjg 


Now, why you should learn a new language and where or how to start? Are maybe the two main questions to face. There is one thing you need the moment you decide to immerse yourself in a whole new language: motivation. I remember that when I made up my mind about English it was 1) I wanted to demonstrate my teacher she was the problem why I wasn’t learning so Edita if you’re reading this: it was you. 2) I really wanted to marry Nick Jonas back then and hence I realise that in due to achieve it I had to learn his mother tongue “how is he gonna understand me then” popped in my mind every freaking second. I was sincerely afraid guys.    

#TrueStory


Once you start it’d be both amazing and frustrating. You will find yourself amazed by the incredible and beautiful things you’ll learn from now on and frustrated cause you’ll want to learn everything at once. But if you get to organised yourself and tonnes and tonnes of dedication and patience it’d turn out being a piece of pizza 


-I know is “a piece of cake” but I really like pizza-


How? Do you remember the way you got to manage your mother tongue? Those first words like ‘mum’ 'dad’ 'dog’ etc…, how the more you listened those words became sentence like 'I love my mum’ 'I have a dog’ 'the sky is blue’

-Todos los dominicanos seguro recordarán el libro nacho en 3, 2, 1…-


Then you discovered that unbelievable thing called grammar which helped you to give a perfect sense and order to the bunch of words in your head. Is the same here:  1) word by word  2) ABCD… 3) expressions 4) grammar… 
When I started learning English —and I am still learning since I do believe one never ends on that— I remember getting into small words and phrases like “hello” “my name is…” and the verb to be that seems like only thing schools teach us. I sang songs not paying attention at my horrible voice or pronunciation. All that mattered was speak and this happen a lot: some people are afraid to talk out loud and that’s a big mistake. Another big mistake I used to do was translate from language to another till I found this amazing teacher who told me “think in English so you can speak English; don’t lose time translating” and he was hella right. You know what? it works with every language you wanna learn.

 Learning a new language is also learning a completely new culture. I didn’t even know we had idioms in Spanish until I heard 'face the music’ the first time I read that I tried so hard to understand it but it didn’t make sense when I did my best to translate it. Maybe you didn’t notice while growing up cause it was part of you already but when you get into any language it means getting into a whole new culture, it means you’ll get to know how those people think, the point of view in a certain way that’s what means 'thinking in x language. Why you should learn a new language? It’ll help you know this amazing freaking world. Why not? Can you do it at home? yeah, Do you have to go to an Academy? No, if you don’t want to. It is easier than it seems so what are you waiting for?

And guess what works with every language. I know right! Awesome! So in this series of posts along with the videos uploads in my channel, which you can find here »Wanderjack« I’m gonna show you how amazing it is self-learning but most of all, how fun it can be if we do it together.  


Let’s learn Korean ( 한국어) together! 

These are some of my favorite bands, artists and songs in Spanish. I’ve seen a couple of lists like these going around but I thought I’d make my own, too. These songs are not necessarily to study Spanish but you could always print out the lyrics and learn new vocab or expressions. I tried to include artists from different Spanish speaking countries, mostly Latin America, and different genres. I also included a Spotify link to the artist if you wanna listen to more of their work. Feel free to add more or tell me what you think of some of these!

Let me tell you a story

So I went to church camp with my friends and we went to go get lunch at McDonalds on the last day(there’s a ball type thing on the last night of camp so we were about to get ready).

I went in there with my hair in a messy bun, no make up, sweat pants, slides, and an old tank top. I was a mess and I liked it.

So we were in line and my dad calls me and we start talking on the phone in Spanish. The line moves up, my friends order for me(y'all the real mvps), and the older white woman behind the counter tells me to “speak English, this is America. You wanna speak Spanish go back to your own damn country.” Y'know, that super stupid racist remark.

Obviously, I was beyond pissed. I told my dad I had to go(in Spanish and very loud while staring her in the face) and I went off. Spewing how, yes, this is America. America is a melting pot of different backgrounds. Everyone has their own right to hold on to their culture and speak whatever language they want. I felt pretty good after that and we took our food and left.

Fast forward to after the party, it’s about 1:30 in the morning, we go back to McDonalds praying that she won’t be there. I’m all did up. Hair curled, make up done, black dress, heels. I was slaying man. So we go up in there and there she is. Still working.

I stayed on the side while they ordered from another guy and my friend and I decided that now would be a good time to practice French… just to see what she would do.

We start spewing out a conversation in French and the woman looks at me and says “oh, French is such a beautiful language. What did you say?” I turned around and looked at her like, “wtf?”

She didn’t recognize me. She actually didn’t recognize me all dressed up.

I cussed her out in Spanish and asked her if she recognized me now and she was frozen in shock for about a minute. Her male colleague that helped us just stared at her, apparently he heard what happened earlier even though he was in the back. He said nothing. All service halted and everyone stared at her.

Manager comes out from the back all pissy asking why no ones working and I tell him what happened with her and he turned on her and took her in the back.

The guy, let’s call him Lorenzo, told the people he was helping to hold on and turned to us and helped us. Our meal was free. Manager made sure we got extra fries and all was well.

The woman got fired.

Well that’s my story. Hope you had a nice read. Have a good day and remember, you can speak whatever language you want to speak. Because, when it comes down to it, no one can steal your culture from you.

ayyyy. I go by the name dj & I’m a proud scandinavian (gmt+1) living in the most confused country regarding weather. for reals, it’s so confused here. i’ve been roleplaying on tumblr for  about six years now (on/off), so it’s safe to say that I’m part of the old school way of doing shit around here. i’m all for plotting and all, but I’m also hyped on going with the flow.. so hit me up if you got some q’s and meet mason. (and please also message me if you’re a really sensitive roleplayer, bc the last thing i wanna do is make you sad).

I really need to learn

My dad was Mexican and my mom is German when they got divorced my mom got full custody but my dad still visited and all that.

After he past away his two sisters and father and all his family wanted to see me more, ya know. Talk to me (I look a lot like him too).

And I would love nothing more than to get to know that side of my family! But as you can guess they speak Spanish. Most of them know English but a few are still learning.

Like one of my cousin’s who is trying to talk to me and is sending me stuff in Spanish and I’m just like “Uuuuuuuuuh…………………”

I don’t wanna make them feel like I’m ignoring them but….I can’t read Spanish . QwQ

Hello! I’m a new studyblr so I thought I’d make a post introducing myself ^^

I’m Cielo (not my actual name but) and I’m a music student from Mexico City. I speak Spanish, English and I’m learning Deutsch. I’m a huge nerd, I like anime, manga, Harry Potter, GoT, TWD… you name it I probably like it ^^

I will be posting photos of my bujo, my music notes, my German notes, and I hope to make music playlists to help with study. Also, I mean to make this blog supportive af, I struggle a lot with anxiety so I wanna help people with that, if I can.

Some of the studyblrs that inspire me are: @emmastudies @academiix @studyfulltime @studyquill and special mention to @readingdragons because I didn’t realize I could put anime characters on a bullet journal until I saw hers with Bokuto~ (I’m sorry if I freak you out, if I freak all of you out, ahhh sorry)

Well that’s it! I hope to be friends with a lot of you in the studyblr community! Let’s do our best!

I'm going to Barcelona in a couple days; anything I should know?

Umm… you might need to be more specific :/ do you mean language-wise or just general tips about barcelona? 

I guess I could do both tho lol although I’m probably more useful for the language part

So language-wise, they speak both Spanish and Catalan there, but you should be able to get around with just Spanish. So some basic sentences (aside from hello and stuff) are:

1. Restaurants

- Quiero una mesa para […] - I want a table for […]

- Me gustaria beber agua/vino/zumo - I would like to drink water/wine/juice

- Tiene opciones vegetarianas? - Do you have vegetarian options?

- La comida está deliciosa/mala - The food is delicious/bad

- Que postres tiene? - What desserts do you have?

- La cuenta por favor - Check please

2. Tourism

- Tiene un mapa? - Do you have a map?

- Busco el museo/restaurante/hotel - I’m looking for the museum/restaurant/hotel

- Me puede mostrar el camino, por favor? - Can you show me the way please?

- Dónde puedo coger un taxi? - Where can I catch a taxi?

- Cuál es el banco que está más cerca? - What is the nearest bank?

- Estoy perdido/a - I’m lost

- Cuánto cuesta la entrada - What is the entry fee?

- Puedo sacar fotos? - Can I take pictures?

3. Emergency

- Necesito llamar la policia/ambulancia - I need to call the police/ambulance

- Me robaron el dinero/la cartera - The stole my money/wallet

- Dónde está el hospital/ la farmacia más cerca? - Where is the nearest hospital/pharmacy?

4. Hotel

- Tengo una reservación - I have a reservation

- Necesito una toalla/ un jabón - I need a towel/soap

- Ofrecéis servicio de habitación? - Do you offer room service?

- Que tipo de transporte público hay cerca del hotel? - What kind of public transport is close to the hotel?

Now, about Barcelona, I’ve only been once, ages ago, so I can’t say much about it, but you should go check out the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, Parque Güell if you like architecture. There’s also the Poble Espanyol, which is a historic little town that’s pretty cute. Las Ramblas is also a popular street to go to :) 

Weather-wise, it appears to be pretty warm at this time of the year, so don’t wear too many layers, but keep in mind that some touristic areas (mostly churches, if you want to visit those) require covering knees and shoulders. Also, the sun sets pretty late in Spain in the summer (around 10pm) so people are out until pretty late, and many people don’t have supper until around sundown. Also, bars are open to everyone as long as you don’t buy alcohol, so you can grab a drink there whenever even if you’re underage.

Idk if there’s anything anyone else would like to add? And pls let me know if I didn’t answer your question!

Oversexualization

No, let tell y’all I was there at a point in life. This is the boy who swore he was moving to NY to meet a Puerto Rican or Dominican and getting married. Such a fucking sad case I was. 

Anyways, it brings me to a point. Being that there are Afrocubans? Am I allowed to learn Spanish. Part me is like BITCH LEARN THAT SHIT. Get it over with. Another part of me is like, HOE, you speaking Spanish is like somebody from outta your culture calling you a NIGGER. Leave it alone.” Aye, for some odd reason I really wanna learn Spanish tho. I just do. BUT. If I sit on Tumblr screaming about how “this person or that person is practicing cultural appropriation” and I turn my dumb ass around and do it that would make me the exact same.

Okay so some people asked me to post some selfies so here they are! 😊🙈

Also some people asked me some questions about myself so here they are too!

What’s your name?

Marianne, but you can call me Mazzi 😁

Where are you from?

I’m from England! Although I was born in Thailand and my mother is Thai and my dad is English. But I look more English and Thai and I have a British accent so I normally just say I’m English 😂

What are your aspirations?

I want to be an actress! I wanna be in films and tv shows so I can see people make gifs of me and stuff cause idk 😂😅 I really wanna be in a batman film. I have loved batman from a young age and I want a Batman tattoo!

What languages can you speak?

Well obviously I’m fluent in English, and I know a few languages I’m just not fluent in them; I know Spanish, Thai and I’m teaching myself Romanian! 😊

If you had to choose a character to date out of any universe or anything, who would it be?

It’s a tie between Bucky Barnes and Jason Todd really, but I guess by how I image my ‘type’ is, I would have to say Jason Todd.

What got you into writing?

It’s a long story but in short, I just wanted to try it out! Plus it’s a good hobby and I enjoy it a lot!

Most things precious to you?

1. Sleep
2. Batman (and Jason Todd 😆)
3. Tv and Film
4. Food
5. My phone
6. Family
7. Friends
8. That’s all I can think of at the moment 😂
9. Ooooo I forgot books!
10. And drawing!

What’s your favourite colour?

Black and Red.

Do you prefer Batman or superman?

Batman. 💯

What is your style?

Well I like leather jackets, jeans, dr martens/timberland boots, oversized tshirts and hoodies and anything.

I guess you could say my style is like 'bad girl’ or 'biker girl’ or just a female Jason Todd.

What’s your personality like?

I’m horrendously dirty minded. I’m a sarcastic little shit and I tend to swear a lot 🙈 but I guess I’m nice and I care a lot I just tend to come off as someone who doesn’t care and is a cold hearted bitch. But! Once you get to know me apparently my friend calls me “a huge, dorky, loving teddy bear.”

Another friend also told me, before we we’re friends, that when she first saw me she thought I wanted to kill her because of my apparent “bitch face” and my headphones were in and I was listening to like slipknot or something 😂


That’s all the questions I think that I have been given, if you want to ask me ANYTHING - come ask! 😊 or if you just wanna talk that’s fine too 😋

And Then There's You (Michael Clifford Imagine) - Part 3

Summary: “In a perfect world, when he’s with her, he would be wishing he was with me; when he looked at her, he would be looking at me; when he smiled at her, his smile would be for me; when he thought about someone, he would be thinking about me. In a perfect world, he would realize that she wasn’t the one he was supposed to be with and I would still be standing here waiting for him still when he finally knows this. But this isn’t a perfect world and people do get hurt, you smile when you feel like crying, you act like you’re okay when you’re falling apart inside and you let it go. You move on, because there’s nothing else you can do”

Requested: Yes

Warning: Swearing, talks of cheating, name calling, Michael almost gets slapped + mentions of sex

A/N: This hasn’t been proof-read! Tell me what you think and if you want another part!! Credits to the owner for the gif!

THE ORIGIN OF MY LOVE OF SPANISH!CHULETA. 

He utterly slayed me with this. I still have the mp3. I still have the entire song memorized. I might even still have the notepad document where I typed it all out phonetically to learn the words since I don’t freaking speak Spanish. I MEAN. Some things just transcend language. When he sings in Spanish, it’s with such beauty and power and feeling that I wanna live inside his voice forever. That’s normal, right? Yeah. Perfectly normal. 

SO. I’M A LITTLE EXCITED ABOUT THE WHOLE WRITING SONGS IN SPANISH TWEET FROM TODAY. Yup.

I’m in like an 9th grade level for spanish a 3rd grade level for mandarin and a fetus level for hindi so if you speak any of them and wanna help me get better please for the love of god make me a study guide or something

Epic Rap Battles of Candidates: Rubio vs. Cruz
  • Cruz: Well looks like it's my turn, I suppose/Who could ever match such inspiring prose?/I "Cruz" your port and I don't need an anchor/Hillary makes me likable, I'll be sure to thank her./You don't want to mess with the storm that I'm brewing/I promise you I know "exactly what I'm doing"
  • Rubio: Come again, friend?/You really wanna go?/Perhaps this rap would be better en español/Oops, my bad, I forgot one thing though:/You don't speak Spanish and I don't speak gringo./You've got cute rhymes but they're mostly filler/Guess that's what I expect from the Zodiac Killer.
  • Cruz: Oh real original, mi hermano/why don't you and Obama go smoke some Cubanos?/Since he's your best friend it would be a real treat/he just loves hanging out with other amnesty freaks.
  • Rubio: Are we doing that thing where you redefine words?/you're the only one I know who could be that absurd/It was never amnesty and your argument is weak/But why waste my breath? You'll change your mind again next week.
  • Announcer: Who won? Who's next? You decide!
