How to say 'hello' and introduce yourself

Read your first page in this lesson. Don't try to memorize everything. Just read the dialogues aloud and slowly.

Hola
  Diego
Hello Diego.
Hola
  Ernesto

If you want to introduce yourself or you want to know the name of someone you are talking to, use 'Me llamo ...' (My name is ...) and '¿Cómo te llamas?' (What's your name?).

Hola
. Me llamo Teodoro.
Y
  tú, ¿cómo te llamas?
Hello. My name is Theodor. And what's your name?
Me llamo JuanMy name is Juan.

Try to read aloud to yourself the two dialogues above. Then please do the same for the two dialogues below. While doing so, please do not worry too much about your pronunciation. You will learn later in this lesson, how to pronounce and stress the different words in Spanish.

Here are a few examples, how you can ask your friends or a young person, how they are doing and how things are going.
