comment Is there a software utility available that allows simultaneous reading of Spanish and English material?
I've done this a ton of times, and I agree it'd be nice to have a utility like this - but I haven't found one either. I became deft with Alt-Tab and PageDown. It does a good enough job. To note, many Biblical translation sites have two translations side-by-side, so the potential is there.

comment How do native speakers speak the correct pairs of words when they speak fast?
+1. I've been fluent for 13 years, but I still find myself having to compromise and do a partial "d" at times - especially when speed is most important, like when I'm interpreting. But I have actually practiced this quick d so that it sounds as good as it can under these circumstances, and with time it's gotten close to the real thing. But slowing down doesn't sound bad, so don't be afraid to slow your speech when necessary. Clarity is usually preferred to speed.

comment why i always bite my tongue when speaking spanish 'd' in the sentence
I agree - learning phonetics is all about repetition of the sounds until the movements are smooth. I've nipped my tongue before as well with "t" at first :) Also, listen to how it sounds if you alter the position a little. Like Rorok below mentioned, I think that your tongue may be protruding more than necessary in order to render the "d" sound.

comment “Saber” in the sense of “to taste:” how should it be conjugated in first person?
I agree, I would generally use "No soy sabrosa" or the other, but I was curious about the conjugation. Thanks!

Added the same question in Spanish and moved one line upwards. Did not change content.
