Lesson 3 ¡Hola!/¿Qué Tal?

  • Objectivo: To learn how to greet people in Spanish and say how you are feeling.
  • Tip: Try to memorize the phrases shown on the computer.


  • We need to learn how to greet people in Spanish.
  • So how do we do it?....
  • We start with ‘Hola’ which means….
  • Hello
  • Hola has a silent ‘h’ so pronounce it without the ‘h’.

Greetings throughout the day:

  • In Spanish, just like English, we can greet people throughout the day. Here are some phrases that you will need to know. Try to make sense of the sentences on the next slide.

Other Greetings:

  • Once we have said ‘Hello’, we can start to ask how somebody is feeling.
  • We can ask how someone is by using the phrase ‘Qué Tal?’. This means ‘How are you?’

What am I saying?

  • ¡Hola! Qué Tal?
  • We start with ‘Hola’ which means….
  • Hello
  • What does ‘Qué Tal?’ mean?
  • How are you
  • So basically this sentence is saying:
  • Hello. How are you?


  • When someone asks us that question in Spanish we can reply with many different responses.
  • Lets look at some of them together:

Bien = Well

  • Example sentence:

!Hola! Qué Tal?

Bien, gracias.

  • Which means?...

Muy Bien = Very Well

  • Example sentence:

!Hola! Qué Tal?

Muy bien, gracias.

  • Which means?...

Estupendo = Great

  • Example sentence:

!Hola! Qué Tal?

Estupendo, gracias.

  • Which means?...

Regular = Ok

  • Example sentence:

!Hola! Qué Tal?

Regular, gracias.

  • Which means?...

Mal = Bad

  • Example sentence:

!Hola! Qué Tal?


  • Which means?...

Muy Mal = Very Bad

  • Example sentence:

!Hola! Qué Tal?

Muy mal!

  • Which means?...

Fatal = Terrible

  • Example sentence:

!Hola! Qué Tal?


  • Which means?...

Greetings – Matching Game:

  • In this activity you will have to match the English words we have learnt with the Spanish.
  • Your score:
  • <2 = Poor score. I will help you.
  • 2 ≤ 4 = Average. You may need a little guidance.
  • >5 = You are right on track, well done.


  • ¿Cómote llamas?=What's your name? (inf.)
  • ¿Cómo se llama Usted?=What's your name?
  • (formal)
  • Me llamo*....= My name is..
  • But what do we mean by “formal” or “informal”?
When to use the formal “you”:
  • When addressing an adult or anyone with a title(Sr.,
  • Sra., Srta., Dr…)
  • When addressing a stranger
  • In formal settings such as business deals
  • Any time when respect or formality is desired
  • When to use the informal “you”:
  • When addressing peers or younger kids
  • In situations that don’t call for formality
  • *When in doubt, be formal.*
¿Cómo se llama (él/ella)?=
  • What’s his/her name?
  • -Se llama Bruno Mars. –Se llama Taylor Swift.
brief intro to passive tense
Brief intro to passive tense
  • The use of the verb “llamar(se)” to ask/tell names is
  • reflexive, and “me,” “te,” and “se” are reflexive pronouns.
  • -myself, yourself, himself/herself/yourself (formal)
  • -llamar(se)= to be called.
  • “Me llamo…” is literally ‘I am called..’ or ‘I call myself.’
  • and so on.
  • The use of the subject pronoun is optional, but the
  • reflexive pronoun is mandatory.
alternative way to introduce
Alternative way to introduce:

¿Cuálestunombre?-What is your name?

If ‘su’=‘his/her/your (formal)’, then how do

you ask a friend for a new kid’s name?

How do you pose the question, “What’s

your name?” to an adult?

  • “¿Cuálessunombre?” is how you would
  • ask it for both scenarios!
  • Possible answer for #1 is “Su nombrees
  • Anita.”
  • In #2, the answer would be in 1st person:
  • “Minombrees Srta. Ambrose.”


Minombrees Olaf. ¡¡Mucho Gusto!
