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.
If you want to say 'hello' in Spanish to a friend or a young person, use the word 'hola'.
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 Juan||My 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
Hola Marcos. ¿Cómo
|Hello Markus. How are you?|
|Very well, thanks. And you?|
|Así, así.||So so.|
Hola Nena. ¿Cómo
|Hello Nena. How are you?|
Instead of saying "¿Cómo estás?", you can also use "¿Qué tal?" ("What's up?" or "How are you?").
To say goodbye to someone in Spanish, use the following suggestions:
|See you tomorrow.|
|Hasta luego.||See you later.|
