Roberto de Cuba y los EEUU






Bueno e* Yo soy cubano. Nací en Cuba el día once de junio de mil novecientos cincuenta y uno. Mi padre era un italiano exiliado.
 
nací: I was born (form used to express an event in the past)
era: was (form used for general description in the past)
exiliado: exiled

* Linguistic note
In English we tend to say "uh" as a sort of "space holder" while we organize our thoughts.  In Spanish "e" is often used. They both mean "thinking thinking thinking".
