Conversational Spanish for Beginners

Image titled Have a Basic Spanish Conversation Step 1Hello! This can be said in a number of ways. The most basic is "Hola!" (OH-lah), which you probably learned from Dora as a kid. Although this is short and simple, longer words may be used to spice it up and make you seem more educated. Try using, "Buenos días!"(BWEH-nos-DEE-az), which means "Good morning!". Also, you could use, "Buenas tardes!" (BWEH-nas-tard-ays), which means "Good afternoon!", depending on the time of the day.

What is your name? This is usually said by saying, "¿Cómo te llamas?" (COH-MOH-tay-yam-as).

My name is _____. People will answer the above question using "Me llamo _____" (ME-AH-moh_____). The blanks will have your name in it.

Nice to meet you! This is said by using "Igualmente!" (IG-wall-men-tay). Someone could then say either "Mucho gusto" (MOO-choh-goos-toh), or "El gusto es mío" (EL-gus-toh-es-mioh). The former means "Nice to meet you, too", and the latter means "The pleasure is mine".

I am from ______. You or the other person will answer the above question with, "Yo soy de ______" (YO-SOY-DAY-). The blank would be your country. The US is ( Estados Unidos ).

How are you? This is asked using "¿Cómo estas?" (COH-MOH-est-ahs).

Yo estoy_____. There are multiple answers to the above question. You use "Yo estoy" (I am _____). Options for the blank are: "bien", meaning good, (BEE-en), "feliz", meaning happy, (fell-EEZ), "cansado", meaning tired, (con-sodd-OH), and enfermo, meaning sick, (en-fer-MOH).

How old are you? To ask this, you would say "¿Cuantos años tienes?", literally meaning "How many years do you have?". It is pronounced: "KWAN-tos-an-YOS-TEE-en-ays".



When is your birthday? Someone would ask this by saying "¿Cuándo es tu cumpleaños?" (KWAN-doh-es-TOO-com-PLEE-on-YOSE).

See Count up to 10 in Spanish, Count from 10 to 19 in Spanish and Count from 20 to 39 in Spanish, for a list of numbers. The second blank would be the month, such as July (julio), August (agosto), or March (marzo). See Say the Calendar Months in Spanish for a list of months.


Goodbye! Most people know how to say "Bye" in Spanish. "Adios!", or (AH-DEE-OHS). If it is evening or night, say "Buenas noches!", or "Good night!", pronounced (BUEN-AHS-NO-CH-EHS).
