    I know there are a couple Spanish speakers here. I would appreciate if you could give me any help correcting my project. Thanks.

    A few, not meant to be comprehensize:

    That all is for the Spanish, not the way it was written or the subject itself.

    This is approximately the way a Spanish speaker would write it:

    Here's my version. Your Spanish is rather good.

    OK - is it "ojos negros (o marrones)" or "ojos negro (o marrón)"?

    Somebody told me it was "ojos negros (o marrones)". So have fun.

    Also: You are really lucky you decided to put it up here for proofreading. Is your Spanish normally this filled with errors, or did you just forget it over the summer?

    That's what I thought - based on 'mi dos y una mitad años de clase español' over a decade ago (no recuerdo mucho). But, here we have seemingly native speakers with different linguistic patterns! This is completely loco! It's totally freaking me out, man! :eek:

    It is "Ojos negros o marrones". I think BirraImperial simply didnt see it.

    About seeing old world and new world Spanish speakers fight, it will be difficult since Spanish is gramatically identical on both sides of the pond (excepting the vosotros/ustedes thingy).

    EDIT: self-correction: "Las ocupaciones que al Libra le gusta(n) son"---> "Las ocupaciones que le gustan al Libra" as Cube wrote.

    Thanks for the help. You guys got me a passing grade. :D

    But I was hoping to bother you for some more help:

    Thanks
    No this is quite normal. I've never been good at languages.

    Some general tips:
    -Try longer setences.
    -Look at punctuation marks.
    -Dont start all sentences with "Él..."
    -Past tense.
