- 14. Great! so now you know some key pronunciation and grammar peculiarities! Remember these as they will help you understand the Spanish accent and the language Let's now move on to some delightful greetings in Spanish... Moving on...
- 15. Hi! ¡Hola! Greetings H is always silent in Spanish (Oh-lah)
- 16. Did you notice the invested exclamation points with ¡Hola! ? The upside-down or inverted exclamation ¡! points are unique to Spanish This is to ensure that when you're reading, you can tell long before the end of a sentence whether you're dealing with an exclamation! Grammar Tip : ¡double exclamations!
- 17. Now, let's look at Good morning! Good = Buen day = día Although 'día' literally translates to 'day', it is used as 'morning' in the greeting 'good morning' Moving on...
- 18. In Spanish, nouns take up either masculine or feminine gender, for example 'Día' is masculine The adjectives describing these nouns therefore also need to reflect the same gender Since 'Día' is masculine we will use the masculine form of 'good' Hence we will add an '-o' at the end and make it 'Bueno' Grammar tip
- 19. Día has an 'i' maked with an accent ('í') If a word is marked with an accent, then that syllable receives the stress Did you notice?
- 20. Good morning! ¡Buenos días! Greetings Good = Bueno (singular, masculine form)
- 21. Greetings such as ‘Good morning’ and ‘Good afternoon’ etc. always take up plural forms in Spanish. Hence we add an 's' after both 'Bueno' and 'Día' : Good morning! = ¡Buenos días! Grammar tip
- 22. Good afternoon! Good evening! ¡Buenas tardes! Greetings Good = Buena (singular, feminine) Afternoon = Tarde (singular form)
- 23. Good morning! = ¡Buenos días! (masculine) But Good afternoon! = ¡Buenas tardes! (feminine) We learnt that adjectives take male and female forms depending on the gender of the subject Since días is masculine we used Buenos and tardes is feminine hence we use Buenas Grammar Tip
- 24. Good morning! = ¡Buenos días! Good afternoon! = ¡Buenas tardes! Both días and tardes are plural hence an 's' is added So remember!
- 25. All through your lessons, we will give some key tips to ensure you never make a cultural faux pas! Culturally Speaking
- 26. Good afternoon! = ¡Buenas tardes! Is usually used from 3 PM– 7 PM However, it is not really time bound, good afternoon is usually used from lunch time till it gets dark Expect lunch hour to be around 2 or 3 PM! Culturally Speaking
- 27. Good night! ¡Buenas noches! Greetings Good = Buena (with singular, feminine subjects) noches is feminine and plural, hence we use Buenas
- 28. Good night! = ¡Buenas noches! Just like in English where we often use 'good night' to bid farewell, 'Buenas noches' can also be used to bid farewell Remember! Noches is feminine and plural Culturally Speaking
- 29. Informally : just a smile and '¡Hola!', sometimes a handshake if it’s a bit more formal A light hug and a kiss or two are common for friends and family, especially among women Culturally Speaking : Greeting norms
- 30. Generally, shaking hands is considered formal and is better suited for business meetings Culturally Speaking : Greeting norms
