^ I first put disponible rather than listo for "ready", then realized that disponible is probably most readily translated as "available" rather than "ready".

Muy divertido, me gusta mucho! Pero un problema...Please accept contento for happy. It definitely translates as 'happy' and can be used as an adverb as in "estoy contento," I am happy.

Same for calor. I would say "Yo tengo calor" if I was hot.

Nah, calor means heat. Yo tengo calor means I have heat = I am hot, idiomatically.

Ecce's right. On its own calor means heat, even though in a sentence it can be translated as hot. Sentences are often not translated directly.

e.g. you'd translate 'tengo' as 'I am' in the sentence "tengo 30 años", but on its own you wouldn't accept tengo = I am.

Argh, I know a lot of these words by sound, but only know how to spell them in French (eg, dificil vs difficile).

Large should be translated as "largo". Or at least both should be accepted.

Largo means long, it does not mean large.

Frio needs an accent on the i so it looks like 'frío'.

I'm also pretty sure that I learned caro for rich, but google translate says it's expensive, so I'm probably misremembering.

Sitting here wondering why I didn't know the Spanish word for rich. On a geography quiz site. In a world where Costa Rica exists.
