Spanish Greetings And Common Expressions

Beginning Spanish: A basic course in the Spanish language

In Spanish, as in other languages, there are many common expressions and greetings. The Spanish language has two types of expressions: formal and informal.

Formal Spanish expressions are typically used with new acquaintances (people you don't know very well) and people in positions of authority or who demand a degree of respect.

Informal Spanish expressions are typically used with family, friends, and "equals".
