Si, si. El domingo esta cuando realizamos que, "Espera, necesito hacer mucho para mi clases . . . dios mio."

Since this thread is to improve Spanish, I will make a tiny correction, if you don't mind:

Realizar means "to do, to carry out" in Spanish, not "to become aware". These words are "false friends", that is, they are written similarly, but have different meanings.

Something like "Es domingo cuando nos damos cuenta/caemos en la cuenta que..." would sound more natural in Spanish.

Thanks for correcting me. So literally, that would be translated, "we give account" or "we fall in the account," and is meant to mean "to become aware"?

Soy de La Rioja, pero vivo en Madrid.

¿Vas a ir a Londres? ¡Qué envidia! Yo tendré que conformarme con ver Harry Potter en versión original aqu*. Todav*a necesito los subt*tulos, pero es que odio el doblaje español. La voz de Ron es espantosa, y Snape no da ni la mitad de miedo (sencillamente, la voz de Alan Rickman es una octava más grave que la del doblador; no suena mal para el Coronel Brandon, pero no es suficiente para Snape).

Voy a ir con mis amigas de la universidad, y una hace bufandas para ellas.
(I'm pretty sure something is wrong with that sentence. )

If anything, it might be the very list word. "Ellas" means "them", but I suppose you wanted to say "us", which in Spanish is "nosotras". Of course, it's entirely possible that your friend is making scarves for her other friends and not you, and that would make the sentence correct

Re: Spanish

Hi there, I am a native Spanish speaker and I am also a translator, so feel free to ask anything. Any language questions are welcomed. Because it seems this thread ddn't have any activity recently, I am writing now in English but I will translate everything I say, so that you can truly practice Spanish by comparing and reading. Anyone left willing to practice Spanish?=D

¡Buenas! Me presento: soy de España y además soy traductora, as* que si tenéis preguntas sobre el idioma, ¡adelante! He escrito primero en inglés porque parece que este hilo lleva un tiempo sin actividad pero todo lo que escriba será en inglés y español para que podáis practicar español al comparar y leer. ¿Queda alguien por aqu* con ganas de practicar?)=D

Re: Spanish

What is the difference between "Yo estudiaba" and "Yo estudié"?
How do you translate it?
