Word of the Day: ¿Habla usted español?
Translation: Do you speak Spanish?
Pronunciation:ah-blah oo-sted es-pan-nyol

While todo el mundo is goin nuts let’s get some basic useful stuff out to the Spangladeros – whaddaya say?

¿Habla usted español? is la Frase Número uno, el primero, mas Importanté.

However, don’t assume someone can hablar español. Personally, we don’t ask unless we’ve heard our new friend speaking Spanish with others. Even then we ask as a form of courtesy or as a conversation starter. Sometimes it’s best to ask in English first.

No matter what, get in the habit of asking before you embarrass yourself all over the place.
