    Hello,

    I'm in my first year of Spanish and my text book and instructor both say the Chinola is a sour orange but all of the Dominican Republic websites say it is a passion fruit. Which is correct?

    Now i'll try in Spanish (please correct me and forgive the lack of accents and tildas):
    Hola,

    Best regards

    No estoy segura, pero creo que es una fruta de la pasio'n!

    "Estoy en mi primer año de español y mi libro de texto y mi profesora dicen que una chinola es una naranja agria, pero las paginas web dicen que es una fruta de la pasión. ¿Cuál es correcta?"

    Your spanish is really good for a spanish 1 student! Keep it up.

    Thanks for the quick responses everyone. I'll make sure I let the instructor know it is a passion fruit. And muchisisisimos gracias for the corrections. Our instructor told us adding "isisismo" makes it more exaggerated...is that true? I'm not sure if I used it correctly either :)

    Is there a firefox add-in for typing Spanish characters without switching the browser language completely?

    One ísimo makes it exaggerated, more than one sounds dorky.

    That makes sense, she says her little boy says it all the time. And she acts like a dork and uses a kid voice when she says it in class. Thanks.
