comment Why does “Se habla español” translate to “We speak Spanish”?
se is the "reflexive." Me hablo, I talk to MYself. Se habla one talks to ONEself. Hablarse is the infinitive, and se habla is the conjugated form of the expression.

comment How do you say “coming” in Spanish?
Why the downvote (which I cancelled). These seems like an acceptable (if less common) translation to me.

comment What does “churir” mean?
If "churros" is the word for a certain pastry, does it refer to a "wrinkled" pastry? Or are the two words, churro and churir unrelated?

comment How do I say 'It feels like' in Spanish?
You're supposed to post an attempt at (Spanish) translation in your question, which would then differentiate it from the German version (which should have its own attempt). My own "try" at this one is "Me siento," which I posted as a comment rather than answer, because it may be wrong. We're here to correct "self learners," not translate from scratch.

This would be a better question if you offered your own translation "try." If you said, "I think the expression is 'yo parezco' " (wrong), the question would be ok. At SE, we are here to correct your efforts, but not to teach from scratch.

comment “¿Qué haciendo?” and “¿qué estás haciendo?”
"South America" in this context, includes America (the United States), or to be more exact, the Spanish-speaking elements of it. It is a place where many "corruptions" can be found.

comment How to Translate “Sabor A Mi” into English
I think I was confused by the context of all the other verbs in the lyrics, and therefore took sabor as a verb: Tanto tiempo DISFRUTAMOS de este amor nuestras almas se ACERCARON tanto a as que yo guardo tu sabor pero tu LLEVAS tambien SABOR a mi. Si NEGARAS mi presencia ...

@Flimzy: Could we put a "historical lock" on this question? It was heavily upvoted and favorited at the time it was asked. It is "off topic" today, but not when it was asked. And the maybe close the other, newer question as a duplicate?
