ASK A QUESTION What is your favourite sport?
Please list your favourite sport(s). Also the ones you actually play and your country's national sport so that we can collect a good vocabulary list.
If you'd like you can also give the sport terms used.
To start of, My favourite sport is El tenis - Tennis.
But I play volleyball (el voleibol). My(La India) national sport is hockey (el hockey).
Please give Spanish words/terms with their english meaning so that we can learn.
La favorita desportes es el Basketball y me gusto correr porque es más saludable.
My favourite sports is the Basketball and I like to run cause it is more healthier.
Mi deporte favorito es el baloncesto/básquetbol y me gusta correr (también) porque es
más saludablebueno para la salud.
My favourite (in the U.S. "favourite" would be spelled "favorite.") sport is
thebasketball, and I like to run because it is more healthiergood for my health.
Technically, you could say that running is "healthier," but you would need to specify what particular activity running was healthier than. If your original sentence was meant to imply that you like running because it is healthier than basketball then you would probably need to change the conjunction that you are using as well in order to highlight this contrast. If this was your intent then you could say something like:
My favorite sport is basketball, but I also like to run because it is healthier (than basketball).
Mi deporte favorito se llama tiro al arco, pero juego fútbol y corro también. Pienso que el deporte nacional en Los Estados Unidos es fútbol norteamericano.
My favorite sport is called archery, but I also play soccer and I run. I think the national sport in the United States is football.
I enjoy watching basketball and any sport my kids play. They both like to run.

I will refrain from offering my own list of favorite sports as this question has been asked in the past, and I previously responded on this thread: What are your favourite sports

This was not a vocabulary question. Could you please post on the correct category.

No idea re. translations.
India´s national sport is hockey (el hockey) but Cricket is more popular.
me gusta hide n seek
¡Mi deporte favorito es ir de compras!
Me gusta la lucha libre.
Mi deporte favorito es patinando...pero me gusta bailar y nadar tambien!
Mi deporte favorito es el patinaje pero ¡me gusta bailar y nadar, también!
Notes: The verb "patinando" is in the impersonal "gerundio" form and should not be confused with the way that the English gerund is used (i.e. as a verbal noun). In Spanish, you cannot use this form as a verbal noun. To make a verbal noun in Spanish, you would have to use the infinitive form (as you have done with the verbs "bailar" and "nadar"). You can see the effect of this idea when you attempt to translate the second clause of your sentence which can be translated in one of two ways:
Me gusta bailar y nadar también
►I like to dance and swim, too.
►I enjoy dancing and swimming, too.
Here, you can see that in English, the Spanish infinitive (when used as a verbal noun) can be translated as either an infinitive or a gerund (depending on which is more appropriate for the particular sentence).
That being said, the use of a verbal noun (patinar in this case) is unnecessary because there already exists a noun in Spanish to convey this idea. That noun is "patinaje" which translates directly to "skating."
Again, these are just suggestions, and I hope that you find them useful
