    Default A few sentences for a story

    A very good evening to you!

    I was wondering if anyone could help me translate these few sentences for a story I am writing?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    This is the text!

    Why don't you respect me or my country?
    I have been more than hospitable to you.
    The least you could do is learn to speak my language!

    Thank you so very much for your help!

    Hi!

    ¿Por qué no respetás a mi país o a mi?
    He sido mas que generoso contigo.
    Lo menos que podrías hacer es hablar mi idioma.

    That's great! Thank you so very much for your quick reply!

    I'm now wondering how to exactly pronounce that (and where to put the accents). Thank you anyway for helping me so far!

    ¡Hola MiCoco! / Hi MiCoco!

    ¿Conoces Forvo? Creo que tal vez pueda ayudarte con la pronunciación. / Do you know Forvo? I think that maybe it can help you with pronunciation.

    Espero que te sea de ayuda // Hope this could help you.

    Thank you very much for your reply. I know Forvo and also tried text to speech, but I always find that there's a huge difference between pronouncing words and pronouncing sentences as a whole (there's a certain flow in sentences that gets lost if you try to pronounce just the words). Hence my question

    Thank you so very much!

    You're welcome!
    Yes it's true...

    Here in Argentina at the universities or languages schools there are groups of people interested in talking foreign languages for not losing pronunciation. Do you have any of this groups close? Maybe they can help... and also you can have fun!

    Unfortunately, I don't have such schools or universities close to where I live. I do have some basic knowledge of Spanish though, so a simple outline for pronunciation and accentuaction of these sentences would be enough to help me in the right direction! Thank you very much for your help!

    Que tal??
    // What's up?
    yo solo cambiaría la ultima linea por esta
    // I'd just change the last line for this one
