Great! Jun 18, 2009

Good morning Allison and thanks for sharing!

Here is one of my favourite dictionary related sketches of all times, the Hungarian Phrasebook by the mighty Monty Python:

Enjoy!

I'm an all-time big fan of Lucy (and Ricky Ricardo and the whole gang)!

Here is another Youtube link from a Spanish (from Spain) funny program, where the presenter tries to teach a very Spanish (flamenco) song to Will Smith. It's not really a translation sketch, but just as funny:

(the singing lesson part actually starts after the first introductory 30 seconds or so)

Thanks for sharing that Will Smith video!
It seems like he does speak a bit of Spanish, and his pronunciation isn't too bad - great to see!
