The boys are coming to the end of the academic year for their Spanish lessons and in their card I'd like them to write:'Thank you for teaching us Spanish this year. We have enjoyed it and look forward to next year.' (I might just use the first part depending on how long it is).They are doing brilliantly on their Spanish but are not at this level yet!TIA!
do you need this right now or can it wait till this evening?
It can wait! Oooh, thank you!
Hi, it's not that it's hard to translate, just that I had to get off MN and make lunch right that minute!I have never found a satisfactory translation for 'look forward to', the closest is 'tener ganas de' which is quite a useful multifunctional phrase anyway. So you could say:Gracias por enseñarnos Español este curso. Hemos disfrutado mucho y tenemos ganas de seguir el curso que viene.(In Spain 'curso' is the academic school or university year, tho' it can also be used to mean 'a course').
If you only use the first part (or even if you use both parts)you could put exclamation marks round it - an upside down one at the beginning and a 'normal' one at the end ¡thus!
Have you tried Babelfish?www.babelfish.com
Brill, thank you
yes, I haven't found a great way to translate "look forward to" either ... I usually use esperar, but tener ganas de would probably be better. Thanks.
