Speak like the Spanish

A bit of Spanish vocab goes a long way…  Learn a couple of these useful Spanish phrases & words (some not so useful but still good for a giggle!) to give you a head start on your holiday:

  1. Por favor

  2. Gracias
    Thank you

  3. ¡Hola!

  4. ¡Adiós!

  5. ¿Cuánto cuesta esto?
    How much is this?

  6. ¿Le apetece tomar algo? ¿Qué tomará?
    Would you like a drink? What will you have?

  7. Beber como una esponja
    The literal meaning is ‘to drink like a sponge’ meaning to drink a lot.

  8. ¡Vete a freír espárragos!
    This Spanish phrase literally means ‘go off and fry asparagus’. Basically it means disappear and do whatever you want as long as it is out of my sight!

  9. Hasta la vista (baby!)
    Terminator fans will know this one already, but do you actually know what it means?  Until we meet again.

  10. Realmente no puedo hablar español; solo aprendí unas frases de una página web.
    I can't really speak Spanish; I only learned a few phrases from a web page.
