So Im going to continue correcting. Lets see:
"Hi, I just want a story everybody a have a good day." That, is more or less how it looks to me, but translated. If you could put the english version, would help a ton xD

The second half, you got a rare dog, with wings, orange and black, horoscope one, and it was a good day. This one I can understand, so I can correct xD
Instead of "Yo recientemente consigo" you have to correct verb form, then order, so it would be "Yo he conseguido recientemente" or "Yo recientemente he conseguido" but this second one is less common.
And maybe, remove "la" in "la libra" since we can figure it is an horoscope dog, I guess xD

Nope, your name isnt "bien" (I hope) xD
Lets see, if you mean it for one person, or to be personal, then "como estás" is correct. But if you mean it for more than one person, you need the plural, that would be "como estáis". And the "yo soy bien" as I corrected in another post, you need the verb "estar". That would be "Yo estoy bien".

"me gusta sandia's" would go as "Me gustan las sandías" or "Me gusta la sandía" and the question would be "Te gustan las sandias?" (do remember that spanish uses ? at the end of questions, but also ¿ to mark the start. Lazy spanish people like me dont usually use the ¿ in internet, but because we are lazy, we know we have to use it. People learning should get used to it xD

The rest is correct xD

Hmnn you must be from a place far from me, here December means cold, and storms, and bad weather. Not rain, usually, but... xD

You are missing "the" a lot. Im english, you would say "watermelon tastes like water" but in spanish, you need to say "the watermelon tastes like water" or "my favorite fruit is the watermelon".
So,"no me gusta la sandia porque las sandias saben a agua." (You need to eat them cold in a hot day, you will see how they taste great, especially if they are still a bit green xD)

"Mi fruta favorita es la piña porque las piñas son muy dulces."

"Yo sólo quiero usar/practicar (or) darle uso a mi español

The rest is correct xD

Gracias so much for the critique, and the one you want me to translate is supposed to say
"Hello, I just want to tell everyone to have a good day.
I recently got a rare winged orange and black dog from the pound so my day has been good."

Also, it has indeed been a bit weird to pretty much have to put "the" before so many words, which is probably why I forgot LOL. :lol:

Well, this is long, so... you said "Hola, yo sólo quiero a cuento todos a tengas un buen dia.".
From your own translation, it should have been "Hola, sólo quiero deciros/desearos a todos un buen dia." Deciros/desearos... because you dont tell people to have a good day, you wish them a good day, right? Same in spanish. "Deciros" is if you mean to tell, "desearos" if you mean to wish.
And "cuento" you went for the present form of tell, I tell, in spanish. The problem is, "quiero a cuento" kinda means "want a story" and that falls pretty far from the original "want to tell". Cuento either means a story, or as a verb, to count (also kinda like tell, but not exactly, hard to explain xD)

You think having to use so many "the" is a problem? I dont care, I dont care, I dont care! I already speak spanish :P
Nah, now seriously, when you start touching the second meanings, the "the" tsunami will be nothing but a dream xD

Thanks again for the critique/info!
You have been very helpful! (^~^)
What I've taken away is that maybe I need to take into account the meaning of words and phrases a bit more then their literal translations, and I want to know what you mean by second meanings but I'm too scared to ask. :lol:

Lastly, all in all using "the" so much is so strange to me because say I want to eat an apple and wanted someone to pass it to me.
In english I would just say "can you give me a apple", but in spanish I would have to say "puedes te das un la manzana", which when translated back to english (and if I'm correct) means "can you give me a the apple." :lol:

In english I would just say "can you give me a apple", but in spanish I would have to say "puedes te das un la manzana", which when translated back to english (and if I'm correct) means "can you give me a the apple." :lol:


Yup I would recomend wordreference.com, since it helps me a lot xD
By second meanings I mean that we can say for example "Te voy a dar una torta". Well, in spanish, from spain, a "torta" is some kind of cookie, just a bit different, but I think it classifies as cookie. So my phrase means "Im going to give you a cookie".
But at the same time, it has a second meaning. It also means "Im going to slap you" since we also call a slap a "torta". So you can guess one is good, the other not as good.
Plus, if you move from spain to latin america, you will find that a "torta" is a cake, althought Im not sure if its also a slap there xD

The problem here is if you use google translate, and webs like those. They dont really take the sentence into account to find the best meaning for each word, so it ends not being spanish, and not being english either. The best way to do it, and the best way to learn, is to translate word by word with a dictionary instead od using google. The one I said before, wordreference, you can put the word you want there, and it will tell you several words with that meaning, depending on what you want to say.

From that same example you used, in english you said "can you give me an apple?". With that much info, I can guess there are more than one, or else you would have said, "can you pass me the apple?".
Starting from there, "an apple" as in one apple, would be "una manzana" (un + female).
So you wouldnt be using "the" here. It would end as "puedes darme una manzana?" (dar + first person, darme. Second person would be darte, third persob would be darle... its weird xD)

So, using "The". Can you pass me the apple? Can you give me the apple?
Así que, usando "La". Puedes pasarme la manzana? Puedes darme la manzana?

If you arent lost yet in all the text I wrote, in those last two sentences you can see that it makes a bit of sense, is almost the same xD

    ¡hola! me llamo turtle (pero no es mi nombre real, haha) y he practicado español por tres años ahora. soy de Noruega, así que opino que español es un poco dificil. pero tengo un padrastra que es de Francia, y francés es un poco como español. creo que es más fácil porque sé un poco francés!

Would be a bit weird to be called turtle, I would have some questions about my parents xD
"he practicado español por tres años ahora" I get you mean "I have practiced spanish for three years now" but that translation so... it can be correct, but "por tres años" and "ahora" sounds bad together to me. I would say "Llevo practicando español (ya) tres años". The "ya" would be optional, but I think it would give it the meaning that "now" adds to.your phrase.

Also, "Español es un poco difici"l is correct but to me at least, sounds more correct as "El español es un poco dificil". Why? Because the way you say it sounds like spanish is hard, as in a class, same you could say IT is hard, or maths is hard, or economics. But in the one I said, I am saying only the language.

Next would be "padrastra". Either it is "padrastro", meaning the husband of your mother (or a rebel nail xD) or it is "madrastra", meaning the wife of your father. I suppose you mean the first one, but since I dont know you, I cant know xD

"frances es un poco como español" same as before, "el francés es un poco como el español".

And I can agree, it is easier to learn spanish from french since lots of its words have simmilar sounds and are writting almost the same xD
You just had minor problems, I suppose that simmilar to my english xD

    thank you for your feedback hahah ^^; appreciate it!

    and yes I did mean to write padrastro - guess I was writing too quickly for my mind to work out whether that is feminine or masculine! though, when you say "llevo practicando" what exactly does that mean..? is that the verb llevar?

    not used to putting "the" in front of everything, but our teachers say Spanish people love to do that, hahah. guess that's something I gotta get used to as well :o

No problem, Im bored, so I help here if I can xD

I hope that never happens to you with the one you love! Imagine calling your girlfriend he, or your boyfriend she, you could end in the hospital! xD
Yes, it is the verb "llevar", first person in present form if Im not wrong (that is my weak point, the forms xD).
Means to carry, as in to carry a bag, but also can be used for time as a "I have been", like in llevo tres años intentandolo, that would mean "I have been trying it for three years".

So your teachers say that, uh? I hope they like baseball, because Im going to pay them a visit! Nah, just kidding xD
Its just, that it feels better, our "the" links everything together and without it you cant make sense of what the other person is saying xD
