In this course we will introduce you to the Spanish language in terms of communication. Any conversation starts with a greeting so the first thing you should learn to start communicating in Spanish are the greetings in Spanish. In the course you will see the use of good morning, good afternoon and good evening, as well as “Hola” and how to start a conversation.
In addition to learning how to greet in Spanish we will also begin to construct sentences for a short conversation with a person. It is important to know how to structure sentences in Spanish from the beginning.
We will see examples of conversations with greetings in Spanish and we will start working with some exercises. Try to not memorize everything but to understand and practice as much as possible. Many students try so hard to memorize phrases that they easily forget them in the future if they don’t put them into practice. Take it easy.
Introduce yourself in Spanish
In the course we will see some verbs that are used in any conversation with a stranger and you will be able to introduce yourself in Spanish. We will also use phrases that will be useful for any future conversation.
Formal greetings in Spanish (formal vs informal tu)
In Spanish, we have a polite personal pronoun when the situation requires it to be more formal, so we use it when appropriate. Also, the use of these formal pronouns is slightly different among Spanish-speaking countries.
We will see the use of Tú (you) and its formal form and we will apply it in a conversation. We will also practice with exercises to make it easier to see its use and understand the formal greetings in Spanish.
All languages are different and this is the beauty of learning new languages, the uniqueness of each one of them. When learning through English, we will see the differences that we will find between Spanish and English and the particularities of Spanish.
An example of this is the way we ask “What’s your name” in Spanish. “Cómo te llamas?” how do you call yourself? Weird isn’t it? We will see all these phrases.
