Estudiante.

"Mi destino es la lengua castellana,
El bronce de Francisco de Quevedo,
Pero en la lenta noche caminada,
Me exaltan otras músicas más íntimas.
Alguna me fue dada por la sangre-
Oh voz de Shakespeare y de la Escritura-,
Otras por el azar, que es dadivoso,
Pero a ti, dulce lengua de Alemania,
Te he elegido y buscado, solitario.
A través de vigilias y gramáticas,
De la jungla de las declinaciones,
Del diccionario, que no acierta nunca
Con el matiz preciso, fui acercándome.
Mis noches están llenas de Virgilio,
Dije una vez; también pude haber dicho
de Hölderlin y de Angelus Silesius.
Heine me dio sus altos ruiseñores;
Goethe, la suerte de un amor tardío,
A la vez indulgente y mercenario;
Keller, la rosa que una mano deja
En la mano de un muerto que la amaba
Y que nunca sabrá si es blanca o roja.
Tú, lengua de Alemania, eres tu obra
Capital: el amor entrelazado
de las voces compuestas, las vocales
Abiertas, los sonidos que permiten
El estudioso hexámetro del griego
Y tu rumor de selvas y de noches.
Te tuve alguna vez. Hoy, en la linde
De los años cansados, te diviso
Lejana como el álgebra y la luna.
"

J.L. Borges

comment What musical instrument is “bateria”?
Why to use translators if you can acess a wikipedia article, whose title would lead you to the Spanish word you´re looking for?

comment “Le lee un diario a ella” - Is the person who reads male or female?
Automatic translators make often mistakes due to the unbiased statistics they use to translate: they just compare where does le lee un diario a ella's translation appear more often, and they spit you that option as the answer. But good catch (+1).

comment ¿Cuál es el verbo para “party” en español?
Well, the thing here @EmilioGort, is that festejar and celebrar might be quite universally accepted. I personaly think this answer is suficient, which I shown upovoting. To me it is not clear the line between questions which should include a tag "regional differences" and those which don´t.

comment ¿Cuál es el verbo para “party” en español?
@leonbloy of course, but the OP is asking for an alternative to that expression. Which non-regional verbs would be able to express that? Moreover the last meaning is, after all, a meaning. Why would the first meanings appearing there be better?

I think this is the answer. The others would be right if slang had been asked.
