LOL!!! Surely you mean AÑOS, not anos, which is something entirely different. Then again, I notice that you didn't use accents (or, in this case, those little curvery lines that you see sometimes over the n) anywhere else either. I just thought that that one was funny![/b]
Sorry, jgoo, but that's Portuguese, not Spanish. He said "6 years ago, I lived in Cascais, Portugal (near Lisbon) for 3 years." Anos in Portuguese means "years" (años in Spanish). Lots of Spanish and Portuguese words are very close in spelling and pronunciation, but there are enough significant differences to make it very difficult (if not impossible) for a speaker of one to have a conversation with a speaker of the other. (Did that make sense?)

But maybe as a student of "Spanish", you are aware that the Iberian peninsula supports at least five distinct languages, and many regional dialects. We've already seen Portuguese here. What you are studying is more technically "Castellano", the dialect of Castilla, the region of Madrid. Don't try to use "Spanish" in Barcelona (they prefer Catalan), Vitoria-Gasteiz (better learn Basque), or Santiago de Compostela (how about Galician?).

Why so many? Well, the whole idea of national languages (one country, one language) is a pretty modern development in the world. Most languages have little to do with national boundaries![/b]

While holding down the Alt key, you press the keys on the keypad on the right side of the keyboard. Sometimes its really more of a hunt to find the right ones! I used to have them memorized for last semesters Spanish Final, but have forgotten them. I will be needing them again soon though, so I better re-learn all of them!

Here's an example: Alt+160 = á Alt+161=í etc. I think that you can get all of the accented letters and the curvy lines over the n with an Alt+16X combination, but its the upside down punctuation marks that I really have trouble finding!!!

Genug ist genug! Wir brauchen Leute, die deutsch sprechen

Ich weiss nicht was es bedeutet
Dass ich so traurig bin.

Wer reitet so spät durch Nacht und Wind
Es ist der Vater mit seinmem Kind

Alle Mensche wirden Bruder.

Ach Ach)
