Spanish Lessons. Lesson 1: How to say ‘How are you?’ in different and surrealistic ways

Surrealistic Spanish Lessons. First, let me introduce myself with a very elegant and sophisticated photography:

Spanish Lessons. Lesson 1 How to say ‘How are you’ in different and surrealistic ways.

Spanish Lessons. Lesson 1 How to say ‘How are you’ in different and surrealistic ways.

Today, we are going to begin another surrealistic section. In Yareah there are a lot of surrealistic things like dogs talking about opera and many crazy people but this time, I will try to teach Spanish with simple lessons. We don’t offer any certificate of anything but I promise to do it… in the funny way!

My English is awful but… I promise that my Spanish is perfect.

Let’s begin, my friends. Today, we will learn how to say hello in Spanish.

‘¿Cómo está usted?’ This means ‘How are you?’ If you think that this is very polite for you, you can also say ‘¿Cómo va?’ but this can be sometimes a little less polite. You can also use:

‘¿Qué pasa?’ This is not recommended for the ambassador’s parties but if you go to some dangerous place, maybe you can use it.

‘¿Qué pasa en tu casa?’ The translation is, more or less, ‘what’s up at home?’ but in Spanish sounds funny. Copyright: translation into Spanish of The Fresh Prince.

You can also use a little more gang style with ‘¿Qué pasaaaaaaaaa?’ Recommended if you are looking for a job because… there are no jobs in Spain, lol.

The common way to salute in Spanish is ‘¿Cómo estás?’ and the other person usually answer ‘Bien’. It’s the common ‘how do you do’ and ‘fine’.

Another ways to say hello:

‘Hola’. You can add something like ‘amigo’ o ‘colega’ (friend and colleague) or ‘tronco’ (I don’t know the translation, it’s language from 80’s and now, it sounds like if you had mental problems).

Note: ‘amigo’ sounds strange in Spain, it’s more used in other countries. If you don’t want to look like Terminator, don’t use it. There are variations like ‘amiguete’ (sounds even weird but some people use it), ‘coleguilla’ (if you are going to try to join a gang, maybe you can try, at least it would be funny).

Sorry for kidding but, the most common way to say hello is: Hola, Pepito (Pepito is a common name as Mr. Smith in English).


Well, that’s all for now. I wish you a very good day wherever you are. Maybe I will continue tomorrow with some lessons or… maybe not because this is unpredictable and surrealistic. See you tomorrow (or not)!

P.S: These guys were famous in the 80’s. This is ussally called ‘hortera’ in Spanish (‘tacky’). I recommend Full Screen

    There are a number of ways in which you can improve a hillside garden, it is
    all a matter of imagination and knowing what problems are likely to
    affect you. You will not need to trim it often whatsoever along with a clover
    garden is even good for front yard landscaping design
    inside location that’s susceptible to droughts. Contact any of those Suffolk County landscaping companies and avail their services.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
