Asking For Help In Spanish

Last time we talked about activities, but what if you need to ask for help? How about when you really need to go to the bathroom? Or, when you don't understand what someone said?

There are many occasions we need to ask for help, especially if we are in a foreign country. Let's begin with these. Try reading them out loud with me to practice the pronunciation.

  • Dónde está el baño?

(Where is the bathroom?)

  • Disculpa, no entiendo, ¿podrías repetirlo más lento?

(I'm sorry, I didn't understand. Could you repeat that slowly?)

  • ¿Cómo llego al Hotel Diana?

(How can I get to the Diana hotel?)

  • ¿Dónde está la parada del autobus/bus?

(Where is the bus stop?)

  • ¿Me puedes ayudar? No hablo español.

(Can you help me? I don´t speak Spanish)

Let's practice!
