When greeting someone it is customary to shake hands. Many people also exchange a kiss on the cheek or a hug. The greeting changes with the time of the day.
Buenos días is used in the morning. (B-way-nos-dee-ahs)
Buenas tardes is used in the afternoon and early evening. (B-way-nas-tar-days)
Buenas noches is used at night. (B-way-nas-no-chays)
These expressions are all used to say good-bye. (Despedidas=Farewells)
Adiós Means Good-bye
Hasta luego Means: “see you later”
Nos vemos (Used to express that you and another person expect to see each-other later in the day or in the near future.)
To answer that question you say: Me llamo _________ (My name is ______)
As a polite gesture, you should say: “Encantado” which is one way to say nice to meet you!
You can respond to “Nice to meet you” also by saying: “El gusto es mío.” which means: The pleasure is all mine.
If you want to find out a person’s name you don’t know you can ask someone:
