comment How to respond to ¿Cómo estás?
Welcome to Spanish.SE! We're glad you're here! However, this sounds to me like a general translation question. What are both (bien and muy bien) for? is asking for a Spanish to English translation. How do you say ok? or not so good? is asking for an English to Spanish translation. I am closing the question, until it can be cleaned up or modified to be asking for more than a simple translation, which any dictionary, or google translate can provide, and is off-topic per the FAQ.

comment How do you say a “shot” referring to alcohol?
@Rachel: I had the same concern, but was told numerous times the word was 'shot', and I can attest to personal experience that "Quiero una mocha grande con cuatro shots" works at Starbucks, without any funny looks. :)

comment What's the difference between rezar and orar? Are there any other ways to say 'to pray'?
During my time in Mexico, orar was most commonly used among protestants for all forms of prayer, whereas suplicar was common among Catholics. I think to some suplicar is seen as a bit more reverent, perhaps?

comment Are there other words that can't be written? (like sal-le)
The question about whether it happens in other languages is very interesting, but off-topic here. However, I'm sure it would be quite on topic over at Linguistics.SE.

comment What is English translation of this short audio file in Spanish ?
Welcome to Spanish.SE! We're glad you're here. However, this site is for discussion of the Spanish language, and not a translation service. Unfortunately that makes your question off-topic here.

comment Latin /f/ to Spanish /h/
And of course there are other loan words with an h. An obvious example: hotcakes (often, but not always, pronounced as with an English 'h' sound)
