    Default Where are the errors in this text?

    I wrote this short bit in Spanish for class. Can you see any errors? I'm sure there are some, although I did check it twice before posting.


    Un mensaje en una botella


    Yo vive en una isla desierta. Veinte años pasado, mi barco hundió y nadé a esta orilla.
    Esta es mi rutina diaria:
    Primero, me cepillé los dientes con alga marina. Después, hago gárgaras con agua salada, me baño en el mar. Entonces, me afeita con lodo y conchas afilados. No me pongo la ropa porque este nadie que pueda ver yo. Más tarde, me sento en una hamaca, y charlo con los monos por el día. Al final, come un coco antes me duerme. Si tú habes leer este mensaje, envíes ayuda a la isla 300 kilometros desde Fiji.

    Hi Harris , this is how I would translate it.

    Hope it helps
    PS: A hellicopter is on its way to rescue you (jeje)

    Default Thanks

    Thanks for correcting that; it was very helpful.

    I might post a few more things over the summer because I'll forget everything if I don't practice. My next Spanish class is in the fall.

    I would help others (just as you've helped me) if I knew more; I do feel slightly bad that I can't yet.
