Spanish Family Names: Family Members in Spanish

Published Saturday, December 27, 2008

Here are a list of various family members (relatives) names in Spanish. You can use them to say the names of your family members in Spanish. The names for male members are masculine and end with the letter "o", and the names for female members are feminine and end with the letter "a". So you replace the last letter in a family name with "a" or "o" depending on if the relative is female or male, respectively. If you are naming a family member group that has both male and female relatives then you use the masculine form.

How to Say Hello in Different Languages

Published Saturday, May 24, 2008

Hello is a word used as greeting. It is an expression used to greet somebody you meet (or to answer a telephone call). If you want to say "hello" in a different language then the list below should come in handy.

However, verbally expressing (saying) “hello” might not be easy. Trying to pronounce a word in a different language, that you are not acquainted with, can cause you to mispronounce the word. If possible, try to listen carefully to how people of that language greet each other. The pronunciation of word can also vary from one region to another within a country. It may, as well, not be the best phrase to say in a given situation. Depending on a culture, it may be customary to say “hello” with a hand shake, hug, bow etc.

Since you are learning to say HELLO in different languages not all countries are listed. This is because you are not learning to say HELLO in every different country (where the language would be the same for one already listed). Here are some of the ways of saying "hello" in different languages around the world.
