Hola a todos. Mañana en mí clase, tengo que hacer un "muestre y diga." Voy a hablar sobre un platillo que rompí en mis tambores. Necesito saber decir "i broke it two months ago." Yo sé que no es "lo rompí hace dos meses" pero, ¿Podría ser? No sé, pero quiero saber muy pronto. smile

Tambien, ¡Me encantaría si uno de ustedes corregiera mi español!

You underestimate yourself: I broke it two months ago = Lo rompí hace dos meses.

Do you want corrections? After "Hola a todos" you should use a colon (smile and continue on the next line, but this is nitpicking, of course. Also, that "También, ¡Me gustaría..." shouldn't have a capital "M" because of the comma, and the whole thing sounds foreign, but it is not incorrect. I'd say something like "¡Y por favor no duden en corregirme mi español!".

Otherwise, well done! Good grammar and spelling!


Small point; should be "me suena loco" (but "me extraña" sound more polite, to me). As for "no duden en...":
the sense of it (while still using "doubt") is "have no doubts about ..." (in other words, "hey, folks: I'm serious. I really would appreciate corrections). It's also very similar to "Don't hesitate to...".
