hello my name is Ana Camino from the Universidad politécnica de Valencia welcome to our Spanish language MOOC for beginners I'm going to talk about a number of survival expressions in Spanish to give you a flavor of what the language is like we're going to start with these two the first one if we want to greet somebody what would we say we'd say hola hello hola and if we want to say goodbye we'd say adios adios if we want to say please the expression that we have to use is what for war or war two words por favor imagine that you would like to say thank you or thanks we'd say gracias and if somebody says thank you to you we would say de nada de nada you're welcome gracias de nada oh dear and if we want to say that we're sorry for something we'd say lo siento lo siento I'm sorry now imagine that you would like to say that you don't understand something somebody speaks to you in Spanish and you would like to say that you don't understand them you could say no entiendo no entiendo ok either easy expressions to to learn and to repeat okay so repeat with me lo siento no entiendo okay now another way of asking somebody to repeat something to say it more slowly because you don't understand them we could say well they're repetir mas despacio could you repeat that more slowly with a repetier mass this path you okay practice that expression too and imagine now that you would like to know what something is imagine you're in a restaurant or in a bar and you would like to know what a particular item is because you're going to order something we'd say okay it's a store and we point to the item kit is isto what's this okay and then they would reply now imagine that you would like to know where a particular place is where a restaurant is a bar we would say done this done and then fill in that gap with the name of the place that we're asking for donde esta el restaurante e donde esta el banco where is the restaurant where's the bank okay donde esta let's see and imagine that you're hungry imagine that you would like something to eat and tell somebody that you would like something to eat we would say Y cierra comer algo quisiera comer algo I'd like some thing to eat and after asking what that is after ordering something to eat and to drink of course then we have to pay and we would say 1 2 s 1 2 s how much is it and then we would pay ok so I hope you've enjoyed this presentation and that you practice these very short but useful expressions ok bye-bye adios
