Me and a freind of mine got into an argument about how to spell Yes in Spanish.
I think it is Si.
He thinks it is Ci.
Who is right?

You're right. Yes is spelled 'Si'.

Neither of you are fully right, although you're more right than your friend. The correct spelling is "sí" with an accent mark on the i.

dammit guys, let the Mexican answer.

To add something else, "si" means "if", so, if you're writing something formal (or just want to write it properly) it's important you use the accent.

It's "Si", there's a Commercial about SiSi around here:
That's how I know it.

Google Translate is good for a most words, but not even close to all of them, and not for sentences at all.

Actually, try understanding the differences between the following Polish words:
Mówi Jesse.
Mówił Jesse.
Mówiła Yami.
Mówiłem Yamowy.
Mówiłam Jessowy.
Mówiliśmy im.
Mówimy im.
Mówić Jessą.

I already made it easier by adding a name after the word in question.

Google translate doesn't translate 'Mówiła Yami' 'Mówiłam Jessowy' and 'Mówić Jessą' correctly.

I see the difference.

PolishEnglish
Mówi JesseJesse says
Mówił JesseJesse said
Mówiła YamiYami said that
Mówiłem Yamowy I told Yami
Mówiłam JessowyI told Jesse
Mówiliśmy imwe told them
Mówimy imwe tell them
Mówić JessąJesse talks<- That makes my name sound so feminine in Polish

I don't get why they change names at all.

Google translate will work one word at a time, sometimes. If you really need a translator, use a spanish<->english online dictionary(wordrefrence.com)

Lakitu, "Jessą" isn't feminine, it's just a way of using words.
Also, "Mówiła(m)" is the female Version of "Mówić", while "Mówił(em)" is the male Version of "Mówić" (add the "m" or "em" if you're the one who did that, otherwise, don't add).
"Mówi" is the current form, and when adding "ł", it makes it be the past form.
Same applies to "Mówimy" and "Mówiliśmy" respectively.

The last letter (ą) is pronounced as "ong" in Dutch.

But I thought "Amigo" is the most common Spanish word?
