  1. Google translation once suggested to our French speaking parents that the children were going to be shot. When in reality, all we were doing was offering a vaccination clinic. lol Oye.

  2. Oh my! Hahaha! I used Google translate a lot last year when I got a new student from Guatemala and didn’t speak any English. His parents did not speak any English either, of course. In the beginning, I would translate Spanish back to a English to make sure I wasn’t saying anything crazy.

  3. Jajaja/Hahahaha
    It’s not the same to say, “dame un duro” to say “dame duro.”
    “Un duro” used to be the coin of 5 pesetas(Spanish currency before the Euro).
    “Dame duro” is a whole different story.

So? What do you think?
