CONVERSING WITH TAXI DRIVERS: 1) How much do you charge? "Cuanto cobra?" 2) Let us negotiate a price before you take my luggage. "Negociamos el precio antes de que me lleve las maletes". 3) Your uncle's hotel sounds very nice, but I have reservations at___."El hotel de su tio debe ser muy lindo, pero tengo resrvaciones en el___."4) Please slow down. "Mas despacio, por favor." 5) At high speeds, I get carsick. "A altas velocidades, me mareo." 6) This window doesn't work. May I break it? "La ventana no funciona. La puedo romper." 7) Mother of God,pigs! "Madre de Dios, cerdos grandes!" 8) Yes, the crazy animal deserved to die. But must he ride home beside me? "Si, la bestia loca mericio morirse. Pero es necesario que este sentada junto a mi?" 9) I will change the tire, but don't expect a tip. "Cambriare la llanta, pero no cuente con una propina."

Wow -if you can learn Spanish between now and June 25 I'd like to hire you to teach me your language skill methods! wink

Belize is an English speaking country and almost everyone speaks English as well as other languages and blends thereof
