 SAYING "THANKS" in Spanish
Chances are that one of the first words you learned in Spanish is gracias, the most common way to say "thanks" or "thank you." It is, of course, an extremely useful word.
If you wish to indicate what you're giving thanks for, use the preposition por to mean "for": Gracias por el regalo, thank you for the gift.
If you want to say "thank you very much," you can use muchas gracias or even muchísimas gracias.
If you wish to add some variety to your language, here are examples of a few other ways you offer thanks:
  • Te doy gracias por el regalo. I thank you for the gift.
  • Me has ayudado mucho.You have helped me very much.
  • Me ha ayudado el regalo. The gift has helped me very much.
  • Me ayudará mucho el regalo. The gift will help me very much.
  • Te agradezco el regalo. I appreciate your gift.
  • Me siento agradecido (agradecida if you're female) por el regalo. I feel grateful for the gift.
  • Estoy agradecido (agradecida if you're female) por el regalo. I am grateful for the gift.
  • Me encanta el regalo. I'm delighted by the gift.
La amabilidad: adelante!

TXTNG EN ESP  texting in Spanish
If Spanish wasn’t already one of the easier languages to learn, as a result of it being phonetic,it just got even easier. Thanks to 160 character limits on texts, and one-handed typing on cell phone keyboards, spelling in Spanish is getting even simpler. The catch? You still need to know which letters represent which sounds. 

As in the rest of the world, teens are the most prolific texters in Spain. It is from colloquial expressions and slang that the concise, yet expressive text language has developed. In many parts of southern Spain the last consonant in the word is skipped in spoken Spanish. “Granada” becomes “ Graná”, “helado” becomes “helao”, “pescado” becomes “pescao,” and so on. This rule is obviously applied when texting because it’s an easy way to save a character. 

But it’s not just the south which has influenced Spanish text-speak, in Cataluña, Euskadi (Basque Country) and Galicia the “X” replaces the “Ch” sound in words – “Chocolate” is “Xocolata” in Catalan. This substitution too has become common in text-speak. But beware; “X” can also represent the word “ por” (English “multiply” in math).

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae . The human brain’s capacity to understand words not only when letters are in the wrong order, but also when letters are missing is the last clue you will need to translate the text message conversation below: 
Monica: Ke kieres acer sta noxe? 

Ana: Toy zzz. Hy pso d sa.

Monica: Xq? Tas ok?

Ana: Toy depre :(. La profe de mtmtx mda muxo tare.

Monica: xfa. Tng gns d vrt!

Ana: Qdms en la dsk lg?

Monica: Siiiii!TQM! ta lgo. Bsit2

Ana: NV. Bsit2 

Monica: ¿Que quieres hacer esta noche? (What do you want to do tonight?)

Estoy durmiendo. Hoy paso de salir. (I'm asleep. I don't want to go out today.) (Literally: Today I pass on going out)

Monica: ¿ Porque? ¿Estás bien? (Why? Are you ok?)  

Ana: Estoy deprimida :(. La profesora de matemáticas me da mucho tarea. (I'm depressed. The math teacher gives a lot of homework .)  

Monica: Porfa ( por favor). Tengo ganas de verte! (Please. I really want to see you!)  

Ana: Quedamos en la discoteca luego? (Shall we meet in the disco later?)  

Monica: Si! Te quiero mucho! Hasta luego. Besitos. (Yes! I love you lots! See you later. Kisses)  

Ana: Nos vemos. Besitos. (See you. Kisses.)

 Course Description

Spanish II is a continuation of Spanish I with added emphasis on fluency in speaking, writing, and reading the language. There will be increased opportunity for realistic conversations and vocabulary. Readings from magazines and challenging text serve to increase vocabulary. Students will increase understanding of the language. Present tense verbs will be reinforced and preterite verbs will be introduced. This class will also take a closer look at the culture of Spanish speaking countries.
