Are there any corrections that need to be made to this Spanish speech? Yo quiero ir a una fiesta de cumpleano de mi mejor amiga. Cuando voy a la fiesta, tener que preparar mucho. Primero, voy al centro commercial para comprar un vestido elegante para la fiesta. El dia despues, me despierto a las nueve por la manana. Despues de despertarme, me ducho en la ducha. Luego me secarme con una toalla. Pongo desodorante y me cepillo los dientes. Me arreglo el pelo para veinte minutos. Tambien, me visto y ponerme maquillaje para veinte minutos. No me pinto las unas. Estoy muy entusiasmado para voy a un fiesta!

    Yeah, there are a few corrections. What I'm gonna do is take your paragraph, and sort of split it into sections, so that I can show you the corrections, and explain them for you. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Yo quiero ir a una fiesta de cumpleaños de mi mejor amiga. ("Birthday" is "cumpleaños".) ANTES DE IR a la fiesta, TENGO que preparar mucho. ("Antes de ir" means "before going.") (We have to conjugate tener, and say "tengo que," because you're trying to say "I have to.") Primero, voy al centro COMERCIAL para comprar un vestido elegante para la fiesta. ("Mall" is "centro comercial," with only one M.) El dia despues, me despierto a las nueve DE la manana. (I changed "por" to "de," because we're talking about the time of day here.) Despues de despertarme, me ducho en la ducha. Luego me SECO con una toalla. (I changed "secarme" to "seco." "Me seco" means "I dry myself." We do need to conjugate it.) Pongo desodorante y me cepillo los dientes. Me arreglo el pelo POR veinte minutos. (I changed "para" to "por," because when we're talking about time length, we always use "por.") Tambien, me visto y ME MAQUILLO POR veinte minutos. (I inserted "me maquillo," which is a neater way of saying "I put on makeup.") (Again, I changed "para" to "por," for the same reason as before -- we're talking about time length.) No me pinto las uñas. Estoy muy entusiasmado DE IR A LA fiesta! (To explain why you feel a certain emotion, you write "de," and then an infinitive verb. In this case, "I am very enthusiastic to go to the party!" ) (I changed "una" to "la," only because it sounds like you're excited to go to a specific party, rather than just any party.)
