Here are some basic Spanish greetings. Like English speakers, we can use a variety of phrases to convey basically the same meaning.



Buenos días Good morning
Buenas tardes Good afternoon
Buenas noches Good evening

You should notice the difference between Good morning, afternoon, and evening. We use buenos dias, and buenas tardes/noches. We'll cover the reasons why later, but for those who are curious it is because of the difference in gender between dias and tardes/noches.
