    by definition, nationality is "The status of belonging to a particular nation by origin, birth, or naturalization". basically, whever you were born is your nationality (unless you were naturalized in another country)

    I'm the third generation [of my family] born in the USA, which makes me 100% American.

    lol, is that even possible? :giddy:

    :wave:

    Shouldn't, particularly on an International Forum.

    But I have seen posts that could have been 'toned down' by moderators.

    Please don't ask me for the links. Some things are best left alone.

    No system is perfect, and Techspot is doing a pretty darned good job.

    That would make me sixth generation American :D (September 27, 1857)!

    If, out of your 10,000 most recent ancestors, 1 were American and 9,999 were Mexican, perhaps...:D

    er...huh??

    Google's translator says Háblenos in Spanish, which I could have figured out myself. What is the hablenos supposed to mean? :confused:

    Do they offer languages where you go to school? You said you're in 8th grade, right? Well, if they do offer languages, you could go to Spanish Year 4 (which I'm going into next year, although an honors class, and I'll be a Junior). The first 1 1/2 years can be difficult, especially telling the difference between the Preterite and the Imperfect Past Tenses which are completely different (Trabajé, Trabajaba...I love that word :D). Or as my Spanish Teacher says, you can mess up the tenses (like the preterite and imperfect; and any subjunctive mix), and Spanish Speaking people will still understand you...thank God for that :unch: !

    I don't think I can take Spanish until maybe 9th or 10th grade. My school's pretty small.

    Probably means he got a blood transfusion that contained American blood at some point :)

    Hmm, no. I will explain it in Spanish. Maybe Cfitzarl will be able to translate it for you :)

    Me siento 99.99& mexicano, y 0.01% americano, porque tengo algunas costumbres y actitudes americanas :)
