    Hello, I am a 10th grade spanish student and I have a spanish oral tommorow and need 10 sentences on the topic of " El Agua Contaminada", the sentences can be very simple such as Contimainated Water kills animals and hurts the environment. I know online translators don't work, but if any of you could help me out that we be great!

    Thanks!,
    Ethan :)

    I am not in the habit of doing anyone's homework for them (because it deprives the person of the learning experience).... BUT.... if you come up with your 10 sentences, we can try to help a bit. Sounds fair? :)

    Hola Ethan:
    ¡Buena suerte con tu examen oral mañana! How about:
    Fish would die in polluted seawater
    Los peces se morirían en agua de mar contaminada.
    I'm not sure how correct the Spanish is - but it's my best effort!!

    Si lo quieres ver de ese modo.... pero en lo personal opino que las "cosas/aparatos/enseres/autos/etc" son los que se dañan o averían ( y se pueden arreglar o componer). Las cosas "intangibles" (salud/política/relaciones/etc.) se afectan (y se pueden mejorar).

    Saludos.
