Hola! I bet that’s the only one you know when it comes down to Greetings in Spanish we have a whole bunch of expressions you can use. In this post we’ll show you How to Greet in Spanish, here we go:
|Buenos días||Good morning|
|Buenas tardes||Good afternoon/ |
|Buenas noches||Good evening / |
|Qué onda||What’s up!|
|Qué tal||How’s it going?|
There are differences in the usage of greetings based on formality. For examples, “Buenos días”, “Buenas tardes” and “Buenas noches” are considered formal. If you want to sound a little bit less informal you can just say “buenas” instead of buenas tardes or buenas noches. But you cannot do this with “buenos días”.
Hola and Adiós are pretty neutral, that means you can use them in both formal and informal contexts.
On the other hand, if you want to use those greetings in an informal or casual setting you can use “qué onda” or “qué tal”.
