  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is lesson 125. Today we are going to do something a little different. We're going to look

  • at the most common Spanish words used in everyday American English. Remember in

  • the US we have so many Spanish immigrants or people who have moved

  • there or lived there or are there. That you know Spanish a number of Spanish

  • words have gotten mixed into English and in our everyday English. A lot of times

  • you know English sometimes we like to use a foreign word to add a little humor.

  • It sounds a little bit more funny it sounds like a different way to say

  • something. So so we do it a lot. I'm just giving you some examples with English

  • sentences with some Spanish words mixed in. How Americans themselves may actually

  • say it. So if you went to America you may encounter this or you definitely will

  • see it in movies too. It comes up in a lot of movies where you see some

  • Americans actually well every now and then we'll throw a Spanish word into

  • into the middle of their English. So let's look at some examples and I'll

  • give you their meanings The first example here that cost mucho dinero. I

  • cannot afford it Yeah the mucho very very common word

  • almost all Americans know mucho. It just means much and dinero means money. So it's not

  • not unusual that the word money would make it here. So that cost mucho dinero or somebody you know or you will often see in the movies. Hey, I want some

  • dinero , dinero money or something like that.

  • All right number two. Hey muchacho or you could say muchacha. Muchacho is boy or

  • young man. Muchacha is girl or young woman. Come here

  • I want to tell you something so you might see this very very commonly in the

  • movie somebody say that hey muchacho come here muchacho. Something like that.

  • Number three I'm going now. Adios adios almost every American knows how to say this, and sometimes

  • they'll say this just as a joke. or as they are going bye-bye.

  • So in case you don't know these it is good to freshen up on them. Don't worry I'll

  • get it done mañana. Mañana always means tomorrow.

  • Mañana. Yeah there used to be song a long time

  • ago. Mañana is good for me like tomorrow. A lot of times when people want to put

  • things off and they don't want to do it now. So yeah they say, should we finish it up?

  • Mañana mañana tomorrow tomorrow so that's the way we

  • actually use it in English this way. Okay buenos dias buenos dias Senor Senora

  • nice to meet you. Okay I should have underlined Buenos dias too

  • because that's good day. Good day you know sometimes we can use it like good

  • morning too. Okay senor, senor of course is for a man

  • Senora for a woman. So you'll see this a lot you'll see this in movies or you

  • know it'll come up. Nice to meet you good All right a very common one gracias.

  • Gracias thank you thank you gracias and we might even have the

  • one that follows that de nada is you're welcome. So gracias you are so

  • generous. All right number seven. That hot

  • chocolate is muy caliente. All right Muy is also a word that means very.

  • Very so that'll come up a lot. A lot of American know that. Caliente

  • means hot. Hot so yeah we might use it they they might say you know

  • today is caliente or it could be used the other way too just like sometimes in

  • English the word hot means sexy. You could actually hear

  • in English especially a Hispanic person say you know, oh ! That girl is caliente meaning that girl is hot. That girl is sexy too. So these are other ways that

  • it could be used in English. Number eight it's mucho Frio outside. Again here comes

  • mucho again meaning much or very. Frio, frio is cold. It's cold it's cold

  • outside. It's mucho frio you might see somebody say it like that.

  • All right number nine. We need it pronto. Pronto means quickly immediately

  • right away. Don't delay. Actually pronto has crossed

  • over completely as pronto is actually you could say it is an English word you

  • could look it up in English dictionaries it's already there. uh-huh

  • so but again originally Spanish and this is one that has crossed over 100

  • percent. Okay good. Arnold Schwarzenegger his character in the movie Terminator in in

  • the Terminator movies often said' hasta la vista baby.' Hasta la vista this is another way you could kind of say goodbye. The better translation in

  • English would be ' see you later ' see you later because hasta in Spanish actually

  • means until. La vista is the visit, until the visit. So it translates best as

  • see you later. Then you know see you again and see you next time see you

  • later. Hasta la vista. I think Arnold

  • Schwarzenegger may be even more popular than it was before but yeah we sometimes

  • so it's another humorous way you know when you're saying instead of saying

  • adios or goodbye. Hasta la vista. See you you know until I see you again. See

  • you later. See you next time So it's used like that. All right I hope this is helpful.

  • I hope you enjoyed it thank you for your time. Bye
