How to learn Spanish: basic words

Hello, Spanish students! Today we will study how to learn Spanish: 10 basic words. Luckily, there are many ways to learn Spanish, but how to learn Spanish by myself? Okay, the first answer is: study Spanish every day. Learning Spanish is not like learning to ride a bicycle, it is a process that lasts a lifetime. So, from Wanderlust Spanish we want to show you various ways to learn Spanish in a fun, dynamic, and effective way.

How to say I love you in Spanish

We have two different ways to say “I love you” in Spanish. This is “Te quiero” and “Te amo”. “Te quiero” is the most used way to express affection with friends, family, and also with couples. So what is the difference between “Te quiero” and “Te amo”?
Socially, “Te amo” implies a greater commitment to this love. Whatever kind of bond it is. “Te quiero” is below “Te amo”.

Usually, it is very common to express “Te quiero” after a time of dating a person. But, “Te amo” is an expression that connotes more commitment. “She/He/They said ‘Te amo’” is a great topic of conversation between friends after a few months of dating someone.

How to say “hello” in Spanish

There’s a good chance you’ve probably already learned these, but here’s a quick refresher:

¡Hola! Hi!
Buenos días Good morning
Buenas tardes Good afternoon
Buenas noches-Good evening

It’s a bit boring just to say “hola”. We want you to feel like a native. And express yourself more comfortably. Spanish is a language with many synonyms. That is why it is such a rich language. Therefore, knowing these words will give your Spanish a “touch”

in Argentina¿Todo bien? (It’s everything okay?)/ ¿Qué hacés? (What are you doing?) / ¿Qué onda? (What’s the vibe?). 

in Peru: “Oye, pata, ¿qué tal?” (Hey, mate, how are you?).

In Colombia ¡Qiubo, parce!” lo cual significa “¿Qué hubo, parce?” : “What’s been going on?” in English

How to say “Goodbye” in Spanish

We have differents words to say “goodbye” in Spanish, here you have a list:

Adiós (bye)

Chauchi (informal way to say “bye”)

Chau (bye)

¡Hasta luego!/¡Hasta la próxima!” (Until next time)

A great way to study Spanish online is with grammar guides and videos. To do it in an orderly way, you need to dedicate at least 20 minutes a day to memorize and do the necessary exercises. On the other hand, this way of learning may not be enough, you will also need a native Spanish teacher. A person who teaches you not only the language, but also the culture and motivates you to learn more than just grammar.

If you are looking for that experience, nothing better than contacting Wanderlust Spanish, your best Spanish school with native Latin American teachers.
