Basic guidelines for the Spanish forum


In many instances in language there can be more than one correct response to a grammatical question or explanation of a phrase, idiom, expression etc especially since Spanish is the official language of twenty-one countries and spoken widely in many others. There are definitely acceptable standards or universal grammatical patterns, vocabulary, expressions, etc and regional variations.

If you disagree with a poster's response please do so in a respectable way. Unacceptable responses such as insults or demeaning a poster will not be tolerated.


- All links, pictures, etc must be appropriate and pertinent to to theme of thread or they will be removed.

-Unnecessary smilies, cartoon animations and like symbols will be removed.

-Oversized pictures that distort the thread and make it difficult to scroll through and read will be deleted.

-Errors- grammatical, syntax, vocabulary, etc. If you choose to correct a poster's errors, it is suggested that you have an explanation at hand if necessary. If you correct a poster and your answer is incorrect be prepared for the responses that may follow (all must be in a respectful way).
