te amo tuesday

In addition to this post, I'm guest posting over at Fidgeting Gidget's blog today while she is off enjoying her vacation!! Please go visit her blog. And if you don't already follow her, you really should - she's loads of fun!!

OK - i'm trying to get back on track with the "te amo tuesday" spanish lessons...I'm starting to think there really isn't that much interest in them since I only received ONE suggestion for a topic. If that's the case, I will promptly discontinue the lessons and just continue posting about my often crappy life...yep, that's what I'll do.

This week though, the topic will be just some basic conversational pieces. Fidgeting Gidget has a lot of international co-workers and wanted to know a few simple & basic things to say to them throughout the workday...so here goes.

Buenos Dias. (bwen os dee ahs)
Good Morning.

¡Que tenga buen dia! (kay ten ga bwen dee a)
Have a good day!

¿Como pasaste el fin de semana? (koh mo pa sahs tay elle feen day sah ma nah)
How was your weekend?

Me pasé un buen fin de semana. (may pa say oon bwen feen day sah ma nah)
I had a good weekend.

¿Como te va el dia? (koh mo tay va elle dee a)
How is your day going?

¿Donde vas a comer? (don day vas a koh mare)
Where are you going to eat/have lunch?

¿Mucho trabajo? (moo cho tra bah ho)
Do you have alot of work?

No puedo esperar el fin de semana. (literal) (no pway doh ess pear ar elle feen day sah ma nah)
I cannot wait for the weekend!

Me muero que llega el fin de semana. (slang) (may mwero kay yayga elle feen day sah ma nah)
I'm dying for the weekend to get here.

If there's a phrase that you'd like to know in Spanish that fits with this theme, just leave it in the comments and I'll get it translated for you.

Hasta luego!

Hey I read these posts! I just didn't suggest anything cuz I know Spanish! :D How about next time you do a post relating to running?

Thanks for the Spanish lesson - I took French and sign language in high school but remember NOTHING!

I agree with the Senorita, you should post a Spanish lesson with a running theme!

Or you could just help me translate what the Leap Frog toys are saying to Baby P... :)

Themes related to shopping (asking the price, sizes, etc.), ordering food, arranging for transportation, asking for directions would be helpful to me.

I also like the idea of sports related lessons - running, baseball, scuba diving, etc.
