basic spanish sentences?
im going to start learning spanish soon, but would someone care to teach me a few simple, basic sentences and how to pronounce them so i dont look totally clueless when i start my lesson? thanks!!
Is spanish a hard language to learn since i am already fluent in both French and English?

the vowels sound different than english
A allways sounds like "a" in hat
E allways sounds like "e" in bed
I and Y allways sounds like "ee"
O allways sounds like "o" in top
U allways sounds like "oo"
Hello = Hola (ola, remember "o" like in "top" and "a" like in "hat", the h is silent)
Thank you/Thanks = Gracias (grazee-as, the r is a little stronger, In Spain "c" and "z" sounds like "th" in english but in Latin America sounds like "s")
How are you? = ¿Cómo estás? (the line on the vowels means that syllabe is the strongest in the world I mean it's the highest sound)
What's your name? = ¿Cómo te("se", more formal and direct) llamas?/¿Cuál es tu("su" more formal and direct) nombre? (komo te "se" jamas/coo-al es too "soo" nombre)
I'm fine thank you = Estoy bien gracias (esto-ee bee-en grazee-as)
I love you = Te amo (te amo,hehe it's the same I know but remember how to read the vowels)
Good Bye/Bye/See you soon etc = Chao/Adios/Hasta luego etc (cha-o, adee-os, asta loo-ego, "ch" always sounds like in cheese)
Please = Por Favor (por favor, in Latin america "v" has the same sound that "b")
I speak english = Hablo inglés (ablo eengless)
I'm learning spanish = Estoy aprendiendo español (esto-ee aprendee-endo espanyol, "ñ" sounds like "ny" in canyon)
I hope it helps you somehowSource(s): spanish is my native language
