The most common greeting in Spanish is:
Teacher
en
4
Hola.
Spanish Speaker 1
es
5
Let's hear it again.
Teacher
en
6
Hola.
Spanish Speaker 1
es
7
To which the correct response is also:
Teacher
en
8
Hola.
Spanish Speaker 2
es
9
At this point you can learn almost anything if you ask:
Teacher
en
10
¿Cómo se dice _____?
Spanish Speaker 1
es
11
¿Cómo se dice _____?
Spanish Speaker 1
es
12
If you share a common language with your Spanish partner, this is how you would ask them how to say something in Spanish. For example:
Teacher
en
13
¿Cómo se dice "Hello"?
Spanish Speaker 1
es/en
14
To which they would reply:
Teacher
en
15
Hola.
Spanish Speaker 2
es
16
At this point it would be polite to thank your partner by saying:
Teacher
en
17
Gracias.
Spanish Speaker 2
es
18
Gracias.
Spanish Speaker 2
es
19
A polite reply to "Gracias" is "De nada", which means "it is nothing".
Teacher
en/es
20
De nada.
Spanish Speaker 1
es
21
De nada.
Spanish Speaker 1
es
22
And now the whole exchange.
Teacher
en
23
¿Cómo se dice "Hello"?
Spanish Speaker 1
es/en
24
"Hola".
Spanish Speaker 2
es
25
Gracias.
Spanish Speaker 1.

We will leave you with one more useful phrase for practicing Spanish.

27
If at any point, you can't hear what someone said or need to hear it a second time to try and understand what it means, you can ask the speaker to repeat what they have just said by saying:
Teacher
en
28
Por favor, repita eso.
Spanish Speaker 1
es
29
Por favor, repita eso.
Spanish Speaker 1
es
30
Listen to how that might work in the dialogue we just listened to.
Teacher
en
31
¿Cómo se dice "Hello"?
Spanish Speaker 1
es/en
32
"Hola".
Spanish Speaker 2
es
33
Por favor, repita eso.
Spanish Speaker 1
es
34
"Hola".
Spanish Speaker 2
es
35
Gracias.
Spanish Speaker 1
es
36
De nada.
Spanish Speaker 2
es
37
In later lessons we will use these basic phrases regularly so, if you forget some of this tomorrow, it is worth listening to this lesson again. Until then, congratulations on beginning to learn Spanish!
