Well I would have thought the answer to a Spanish question would also be in Spanish,

Soy de Nueva York

  • It's optional to translate names. One of my American friends in Colombia (named James) used Santiago as his name in Colombia. Another (also named James) continued to call himself James. Personal preference. - CalvoViejo May 23, 2011 flag

Say where you are from. Por ejemplo: "De donde eres?" "Estoy de New York City."

  • No, no, no!!! Say SOY de New York City. When asked where you're from, always use the "ser" verb. - CalvoViejo May 23, 2011 flag
  • Si, pero... Sabes que solo uno "no" sería suficiente? O tratas a todos como simplezas? - Jeremias May 23, 2011 flag
  • "Un" no, ¿que no (no, no)? je je - messin' 'round.... - cristalino Sep 7, 2011 flag
