That's nice! I want to practice my Spanish, because I can't speak in the language with much fluency.

You speak the language very well! Spanish is the language of my family and my country, but I only truly began learning it as a lad in school.

EDIT: A minor correction: in Spanish one speaks a language rather than speaks in a language—consequently, hablar el idioma rather than hablar en el idioma. Hope this helps! [:D]

Habían personas que practicaron aqui, pero ahora no hay muchos.
There were people who practiced here, but now there are not many.

Creo que hablo español mejor que portugués ahora. Lo no me gusta, porque portugués va (a?) ser más importante.
I think I speak better Spanish than Portuguese now. I don't like that, because Portuguese is going to be more important.

No hablo español bien. Pero es logico.
I don't speak Spanish well. But that makes sense.

Es solo semana diecisiete de español. Clase es buena, pero Duolingo ayuda tambien.
It's only week seventeen of Spanish (in school). Class is good, but Duolingo helps too.

Querrías que corrija tu español? Yo no soy muy fuerte en español, pero pienso que recuerdo la mayoría de la gramática.
Would you like me to [try to] correct your Spanish? Personally I'm not very good at Spanish, but I reckon I remember most of the grammar.

Si no te gustaría eso, me abstendré de hacerlo.
If you wouldn't like that, I'll refrain from doing so.

Yo debería practicar el español tambien. Lo estudiaba por dos años en la escuela, pero no he lo practicado después. Podrías decir "no veo a nadie", que quiere decir "no veo a ninguna persona".
I should practice Spanish too. I studied it for two years at school, but I haven't practiced it since. You could say no veo nadie which means "I don't see anybody".

(Or you can even say, no veo a nadie haciéndolo although that's a fairly complicated syntactic construction)

I eat a lot of meat. I don't like meat (anymore).
Como mucha carne también, pero me gusta mucho. Me gustaría comer más carne.
I eat a lot of meat too, but I like it a lot. I'd like to eat more of it.

Me gusta especialmente la carne de vaca y la de oveja. Hay algún tipo de carne que te gusta?
I especially like beef and lamb. Is there any kind of meat that you like?

I'm not learning Spanish at the moment, but I'm happy to practise other languages here. I don't know that I've spoken much in Welsh for some years now. [O.O]

My favourite meat is pork for sure. I do also like beef and lamb, but I don't really like chicken. I find it rather bland. [:$]

O espanhol para "why" é "por que." É "por que" também em português.
The Spanish for "why" is "por que." It's "por que" in Portuguese, too.

Agora que (?) estou falando, português está mais facil que supus.
Now that I'm speaking it, Portuguese feels easier than I thought it would.

Deveria practicar irlandês aqui, mas não falo o suficiente.
I should practice Irish here, but I don't speak enough.
