of the Week: Hey Listen! The Spanish Verb Oír
I've taken a PDF
(305 KB) lesson from the Musical Spanish CD-rom because I think
it's a nice description of this Spanish verb w/ a sound bite.
The verb oír
is one of the first you may hear when traveling around Mexico
or other parts of Latin America. In fact, someone will probably
SHOUT it at you!
ven acá! Hey you (informal), come over
venga aquí! Hey
you (formal), come here!
use it quite a bit in restaurants to get the attention of the
waiter. Using the formal or Ud. version "oiga"
makes it a lot more polite.
joven - queremos una carta por favor Hey young
man/woman - we would like a menu please
señor - ¿nos puede traer el menú?
Hey Sir (more polite) - can you bring us a menu?
