How To Say Good Morning In Spanish And Some Useful Spanish Words

“Buenos días!” is one of the most common greetings used in Spanish. It can be translated as “good morning” or “hello.” This term means different things depending on the context and location of where it’s being said. In some regions, such as Spain and Argentina, this phrase is often used during the day to say hello to people you know well or just met that same day.

On the other hand, in Mexico and Chile, this greeting is typically only used when waking up from sleep at 8:00 AM. If you want to greet someone with a group of people, say ¡buenos días! Otherwise, just say buenos días. It literally means “good day.” Now that we’ve learned this greeting, let’s learn some other phrases: ¿Que tal? which means “how are you?” and Hola which means hello or hi.

In this post, we’re going to teach you how to say good morning in Spanish. You’ll be saying it to your friends and family all over the world!

Three ways for ” how to say Good morning in Spanish”

  1. Buenos días [bwenos de-ass] [good MORNINGS]: is the most common way to say “Good morning” in Spanish. It literally means “Good days”. You can add Buenos to pretty much anything and it will mean good: Buen baño = Good bathroom; buena ruta = good path, etc. 


Good day to you! = ¡Buenos días!

Good morning sunshine! = ¡Buenos días, sol!


  1. Qué tal [How are you]: If you want to ask a specific question with Buenos, change it to ¿Qué tal? (What about?) like: Qué tal el clima hoy? (How’s the weather today?).


What’s new? = ¿Qué hay de nuevo?

What’s up?! = ¿Qué pasa?


  1. Hola: which means hi or hello


For books written for English speakers with little knowledge of Spanish, this phrase will do just fine since there are no variations across regions or countries regarding how this phrase is said.


Hey! Long time no see = ¡Hola! Cuánto tiempo sin verte.

Hello! How have you been? = ¡Hola! ¿Cómo estás?


Others: Buenas tardes [bwenas tar-dess] [good AFTERNOONS]: as you can see it literally means “Good afternoons” and is used during the afternoon. You can also use this instead of buenas noches, or sleep well, which is usually said at night before going to bed. Buenas tardes is not used in Spain very much so if you say it there people will probably wonder why you are saying good afternoon during the morning hours.


Buenos días / buenas tardes: General rule for any Spanish speaker learning English: If you want to know how something is done in English just look up one word that has both English and Spanish versions.


Good Afternoon! = ¡Buenas tardes!

Good evening! = ¡Buenas noches!
