They will be useful for beginning speakers of Spanish and help to avoid misunderstandings.<br />You're welcome - De nada<br />I'm sorry - Lo siento<br />Sorry or excuse me - Perdón<br />380047567945It doesn't matter - No importa<br />What is your name? - Como se llama?<br />My name is ... - Me llamo ...<br />I am American - So americano<br />I am Canadian - Soy candiense<br />I am Irish - Soy irlandés<br />I live in Scotland - Vivo en Escocia<br />I live in America - Vivo en América<br />I live in Canada - Vivo en Canadá<br />See you soon - Hasta Pronto<br />Good morning - Buenos días<br />Good afternoon/evening - Buenos tardes<br />Good night - Buenos noches<br />Goodbye - Adiós<br />O.K. - vale (pronounced ba lay)<br />How are you? - Que tal?<br />I'm very well - Estoy muy bien<br />Please - Por favor<br />Yes please - Sí por favor<br />Thank you - Gracias<br />No thanks - No, gracias<br />Spanish, just like English is a language where a long list of common Spanish phrases can come in handy.
