That's awesome.  I love the "au revoir" at the end...  :D

As a Spanish teacher,

DavidBryan,

I am taking Elementary Spanish this semester at college.  Two semesters of a foreign language are required for a degree.

Do you have any on-line links for "simple" reading so I can improve my vocabulary?

Also do you have any links for prayers in Spanish?

Lastly, would you please translate the Jesus Prayer into Spanish for me?

My humble thanks,
Athanasia
He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?  Micah 6:8

I know studyspanish.com has some good vocab pages.  Were you looking for something like that? 

Also do you have any links for prayers in Spanish?

Sure -- here and here are two good pages, with a wonderful index of pages in Spanish also found here.

Lastly, would you please translate the Jesus Prayer into Spanish for me?

"Señor Jesucristo, Hijo de Dios, ten piedad de mí, el pecador." (substitute "la pecadora" at the end if you are female)

This is just how my students sound. I love that he pronounces his a's as in apple rather than as in autumn.

At least he got his "no" in the right place. He learned something that semester.  :D
