a quick guide

There are now around 500 million people speaking it in the world.

Speaking Spanish you will have more chances to have a conversation around the world.

So, or to make you understand or for the beauty of the language, it is worth trying to learn it. Many are fascinated by the romanticism of the Hispanic language, many are attracted to it for particular customs and culture and others for the typical and sensual dances that the Latins know very well.


It is considered one of the easiest languages for foreigners to learn, especially if your native language is English, you can experiment by turning the English words into their Spanish correspondent. Once you are familiar with the forms of infinity and endings, it will become your favorite way to learn: study – estudiar

establish – establecer

offer – ofrecer

description – descripción

education – educación

Well know and admit however that Spanish could be a rather complex language especially from a grammatical point of view. For those who intend to leave and do not know anything in Spanish, the advice is that at least you study 2 very simple things: the alphabet and the rules of pronunciation (including accents!). It only takes 1 or 2 days that you will at least know how to read and with a small dictionary you can make yourself understand at least.

Spanish for Travelers:

There are different words and sayings that go to the aid of the tourist for the most disparate cases and according to the circumstances in which they should find themselves; for all foreigners traveling anywhere in the world, learning a good dose of education towards the people who host me for my holidays would be an excellent idea … so, at least knowing how to say yes, no, thank you, good morning, and so on…..of course, not only…

Si —— Yes


¡Buenos dias! ——good morning ; ¡Buenas tardes! ——- Good afternoon ; ¡Buena noches! —–Good evening ; ¡Buenas noches! —–Good night

(Exclamation marks and question marks are always doubled! If they are at the end they also go to the beginning,the first one is upside down)

Adiós —–Bye –;¡Hola! —–Hello — (Informal) ; Hasta ahora ——- See you later

Por favor ——- Please ; Muchas gracias —- Many thanks ; Muy bien —— very well ; No hay de què/ or / (De Nada) —— You’re welcome(They say it by replying to someone say thanks to you)

Me encanta de haberle («haberla» for women) conocido ——— happy to have met you. More simply: «Encantado / a».

Fuè a placer conocerte ——— I was pleased to meet you ; Tengo 12 años ———— I am 12 years old.

Igualmente —— me too ; Tiene la sal? ——- does it have any salt?; Què hora es? ——- what time is it?; Hay …?: ——– Are there …?

Dónde está el metro? ——— where is the subway? ; «Estoy buscando el metro» ——– I’m looking for the subway.

Dónde se compran los billetes? ——– Where to buy tickets ?. ; Què es esto? ——— What is it?

(Always remember that the -H- in the beginning of the word should not be pronounced as in English! It is a silent letter.)


The semplicity’? In all the words or phrases indicated above, almost all must be read as you see them written! Great, isn’t it?

Pay attention to the -C-, -QU- and -LL-!
