What do you do on your day(s) off?

votes

I took Spanish a number of years ago but have lost most of it (I now study an Asian language which doesn't have verb conjugation, past or present tense, etc - all the things I'm having trouble with right now in building basic Spanish sentences!). I can understand quite a bit when I read Spanish, but just can't generate my own sentences!

So there's a friend of a friend who I run into quite often, we've met and always ask how each other are, but we haven't really gotten past that yet - and I really want to! Here are a few questions I'd like to try out in Spanish, and was hoping you all could tell me the best way to say them in informal Spanish - peer/same age, casual environment. Doesn't need to be a word-for-word translation, as long as the meaning is the same. I'll add it to some other things I know and can maybe have a real conversation this week! smile

Gracias!!

What do you do on your day(s) off?

We should do something sometime/we should hang out sometime ("something" meaning like lunch or coffee or something simple, informal and not really asking as much as just.. putting it out there so maybe it's easier for him to make a suggestion or ask me to do something)

I wish we had more time to talk, I want to get to know you better

Are you always this quiet?

Do you live close by/do you live near here?

If you speak slowly, maybe I can understand.

I am taking amy's sentences to give some more suggestions.

what are your days off? cuales/qué días tienes libres? or en cuales días no tienes trabajo?

we should do something, I would love to go for some coffee or just spend some time with you: debemos hacer algo, me encantaría ir por un cafe o nada mas disfutar tiempo contigo.

I want to know more about you. Quiero saber mas de ti

are you always this shy? siempre eres tan timido?

do u live close by? vives cerca de acá?

if you speak slowly, maybe I can understand you better. si hablas mas despacio tal vez te pueda entender mejor

I think her sentences are excellent. Good job amy wink

some accents are missing, but that is not important I guess.

Quentin is right, Laura, context is all we need, but almost never get. Welcome to the forum smile

Wow! Congratulations. You may be the first (well, maybe the second) person to provide context along with your question.
