I just needed some advice on teaching my boyfriend english, he speaks a little but the things he does not know in english I know in spanish so we basically speak spanglish it's funny. I can't find any good sites for him to go on all I can find is english learning spanish sites.

why teaching English to a Mexican?

why not just write teaching English to a person?
I mean, what so especial about a Mexican, does a Mexican need special treatment'

yes, because it is different from teaching a person from Spain, etc.
Oh, good grief! Black and white are colors. Mexico is a country. I need to teach English to someone from Mexico, than makes them a Mexican. Right?

I think her boyfriend IS a Mexican. I don't think she meant to imply that all Hispanic people can be called Mexican, or anything of the sort.

I wrote that because over there in mexico they speak a different dialect of spanish if you didn't already know. They have different words for different things that's why I said mexican. I could have said a mexican person, or a spanish speaking person from mexico but I didn't.

I would suggest the software Rossetta Stone. I am not trying to sell you anything nor do I have anything to do with the buisness. I bought Rosseta Stone a little over one month ago and my son that is 12 and myself have learned alot in a short time. It really does work. You can go to www.download.com and find a file that will give you the first disk, this will help. Good luck

My wife just did a little more checking on www.123-Ingles.com. She tells me it's great. She's using it right now to work on her Spanish, but that's backwards from its design. Give it a trial run. I think your novio will like it.
My wife often carries on conversations with her speaking English and the other party speaking Spanish. Sometimes I have to translate a sentence or two, but usually both parties understand the other's language but don't have the ability to speak it.

Hi, Kayleigh

Natasha is right. While this site has resources for Spanish speakers learning English, the bulk of what I see seems to be for English speakers learning Spanish.

You might check in your community for a program called "Daily Dose." It's a free program to help Spanish speakers get their feet on the ground. I don't know how available that program is in Hawaii. When I was involved with it in Idaho it was administered by the LDS church, which is prominent in Hawaii. There were classes two nights a week--no obligations! It's pretty elementary, but we had people who had lived in the US for several years and couldn't carry on a converstaion in English. We had a lot of fun, with no pressure.
Comment me if you want more info.
Also, you might want to check out www.123-Ingles.com. I haven't spent any time on that site, so I can't make any kind of recommendation, but there is some YouTube content.
Good Luck!

As far as the resources on this site, unfortunately (for you) they are also geared for the most part towards learning Spanish. You may find the Vocabulary / Vocabulario section helpful. (If you click on "En Español", the vocabulary flashcards come up in English.) This forum is also great for asking questions about English, but they need to be pretty specific to get much help. Good luck!
