Greetings in Spanish
The page is divided into 3 parts. First you can learn the most common ways to say "Hi" in Spanish. You could continue with the phrases for "How are you". And lastly situated is the "Goodbye" vocabulary. On the bottom of the reading you can see an example dialogue consistent only of greeting expressions.
Hello in Spanish - how to say "Hello"
Take into account that in Spanish there is one greeting that includes "Good afternoon" and "Good evening" in one. Instead of two different phrases you just turn to speak "Buenas tardes" in both of the cases.
|¡Buenos días!||Good morning!|
|¡Buenas tardes!||Good afternoon!/Good evening!|
|¡Hola a todos!||Hello everyone!|
|¡Hola a todo el mundo!||Hello everybody!|
How are you in Spanish
Except of just saying "hi", it's important to query "How are you".
|¿Cómo estás?||How are you?|
|¿Qué tal?||What´s up?|
|¿Cómo está (Usted)? (formal)||How are you?|
|¿Qué pasa?||What´s up?|
|¿Cómo estamos? (more informal)||How are you?|
In Spanish culture it's not so common to begin to complain when someone ask you "How are you". You´d rather answer "Muy bien".
|¡Muy bien!||Very well!|
|Más o menos.||So so.|
|No puedo quejarme.||I cannot complain.|
Ways to say goodbye in Spanish
You can use "Hasta luego" and "Hasta pronto" in case you will see the person soon and "Adiós" and "Hasta la vista" for a long-term separation.
|¡Hasta luego!||See you later!|
|¡Que tenga(s) buen día! ¡Que tenga(s) buena tarde!||Have a nice day/afternoon!|
|¡Igualmente!||Same to you!|
|¡Hasta la vista!||Goodbye!|
|¡Hasta pronto!||See you soon!|
|¡Un abrazo!||A hug!|
