    Default Basic Vocabulary

    For those of us that are still in the kindergarten of español, here are some basics.

    Hola Hi/Hello

    Buenos días Good day

    Buenas tardes Good afternoon

    Buenas noches Good evening/night

    ¿Cómo estás? How are you?

    Estoy.. I'm...
    Bien Good
    Muy bien Great/Very well

    ¿Qué tal? How's it going/ what's up?

    Adiós Good-bye

    Hasta luego till later/See you later

    Hasta pronto till soon/See you soon

    Hasta la vista The word "hasta" means till so,till I see you. I wrote the most common greetings we use in English because the literal translation sometimes doesn't translate well.

    Hablo ( un poco de) español. I speak (a little) Spanish.

    ¿Habla inglés? Do you speak English?

    ¿Qué quiere decir____ ? What does___ mean?

    ¿Cómo se dice____ en español? How do you say_____in Spanish?

    No comprendo. I don't understand.

    Repita, por favor. Repeat, please.

    Más despacio. More slowly

    Otra vez. One more time

    No sé. I don't know.

    Tengo un problema. I have a problem

    Tengo una pregunta. I have a question

    ¿Cómo? What?


    no no

    de acuerdo OK

    y / o and / or

    cómo how

    quién who

    qué what

    cuándo when

    Please keep adding whatever you think should be included in the basics.
