Spanish is a beautiful language. It's certainly spoken by some beautiful people.

Yet if you want to tell your Spanish-speaking valentine how attractive they are, you may be unsure exactly how to say it it. There are many ways in Spanish to say “beautiful”, just like there are many ways to say it in English: “attractive”, “handsome”, “good-looking”, “pretty”, “cute”, “hot”, “fit”, “sexy”, and so on.

It seems that beauty is a concept for which humans just can’t stop inventing new words. This article will show you some of the most common Spanish adjectives for “beautiful”, and explain the finer points of their usage.

Read this article and you'll never be short of a way to tell a beautiful Spanish speaker that you like how they look.

1. Bello / Bella – “Beautiful”

Bello/bella is a safe, all-purpose word that you can use to mean “beautiful” or “lovely”. It's a bit formal, especially in Spain, but it can describe anything: beautiful people, beautiful clothes, a beautiful view, a beautiful mind.

There’s also a closely-related noun belleza, which means “beauty”.

2. Bonito / Bonita – “Pretty” or “Nice”

Bonito / bonita also means “beautiful”, but it's not quite as strong as bello. It’s closer to “pretty” or “nice”.

This adjective is more common than bello and, like bello, can describe anything – not just a person.

https://www.fluentin3months.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/beautiful-spanish_FB.jpg (2)

Just be careful if you see bonito on a menu. When used as a noun, the word refers to a type of fish that's similar to tuna (and has the same name in English).

3. Guapo / Guapa – “Handsome”

Guapo/guapa is a word with some regional variations. Most commonly, it describes an attractive person, especially male, and isn't really used for beautiful objects or places.

In some regions of Spain, however, guapo is used more liberally. As well as meaning “attractive” when describing a person, more generally it can mean something like “cool” or “awesome”.

In other places, guapo can mean “brave” or “bold”. In some parts of Latin America it can even mean a “bully” or “braggart”. One Puerto Rican commenter says that where he's from, calling a man guapocould definitely cause a fight.”

You know how the word “handsome” in English is only really used for men, not women? Guapo is a bit like that, but not quite as strong. You do hear women being called guapa, but it’s more common to hear them being called bonita. Men, on the other hand, are more likely to be called guapo than bonito.

4. Lindo / Linda – “Lovely”

Lindo/linda is more common in Latin America than Spain (and is also very common in Brazilian Portuguese). It's similar in meaning to bonito/bonita: it can mean “beautiful”, “pretty”, “lovely”, or “nice”.

In Latin America you can also use lindo as an adverb. For example, ella canta lindo means “she sings beautifully.”

5. Bueno/Buena – “Good Looking”

You’ve surely encountered bueno/buena before, as it’s one of the most common adjectives – in fact one of the most common words – in the Spanish language.

Bueno usually means “good”, but it has some hidden tricks. If I told you about a girl I know who is buena, what do you think it means?

To quote Bill Clinton, it depends on what the meaning of the word “is” is. Remember that “is” in Spanish can be está (from estar) or es (from ser).

Ella es buena, means she’s “good” in the sense that she’s a good person. She’s moral, virtuous, and does the right thing. (Similarly, ella es malo means “she's (a) bad (person)”.)

On the other hand, if I said ella está buena, I’m saying that she’s good-looking. If I want to hammer the point home, I could even say ella está bueníssima – she’s very attractive.

6. Hermoso/Hermosa – “Gorgeous”

Another common word, hermoso/hermosa is used for beautiful people, places, and things. It's a bit more wide-ranging than bello – translations include “beautiful”, “gorgeous”, “nice”, or even (in Latin America) “noble”.

Remember that bello had a noun cousin called belleza? Hermoso has a similar relationship with hermosura, which means “beauty”. You can also say una hermosura to mean “a beautiful woman”.

7. Atractivo/Atractiva – “Attractive”

You guessed it – atractivo/atractiva means “attractive”. You can use it in pretty much the same way as in English, for people, places, or things.

El atractivo is also a masculine noun meaning “attraction”, “appeal”, or “charm”.

8. Radiante – “Radiant”

Another word that's similar to the English – radiante means “radiant” or “beaming”. It’s not just limited to describing people: for example, una mañana radiante means “a radiant/beautiful morning”

9. Precioso/Preciosa – “Gorgeous” or “Lovely”

You can call a person, place or thing precioso/preciosa. It means they're “gorgeous” or “lovely”. The English cognate “precious” can make sense too: for example, a diamante (diamond) is a piedra preciosa (precious stone).

10. Rico/Rica – “Cute”

Rico/rica usually means “rich”, or “wealthy”. When describing food, it also means “tasty” or “delicious”.

However, rico/rica can also be used with people, places, and things to mean “lovely” or “cute”. If you use estar to say that a person is rich – e.g. él está rico, it can also be understood to mean “sexy”.

11. Mono/Mona – “Pretty”

Mono/mona is a word with many meanings. As a noun, mono means monkey – but it's not (necessarily) offensive to call a person mono or mona. When used as an adjective, it can mean “pretty” or “cute.”

The noun mono can also mean “overalls” or “jumpsuit”, or it can be a slang term for “craving” or “withdrawal symptoms.” Just don't confuse it with moño, which means “bun” (as in the hairstyle) or, in Latin America, a ribbon or bow.

12. Macizo/Maciza – “Hot”

Most literally, macizo/maciza means “solid” – as in madera maciza (“solid wood”). However, it's also a colloquial term in Spain for “attractive”. Saying that someone está macizo/a is like saying they're “hot”, “hunky”, or a “babe”.

13. Bombón – Sweet Like Chocolate

A bombón is a type of small chocolate or candy – the exact type depends on your dialect. But it can also mean “an attractive person” – a “beauty” or “stunner”. So call your lover a bombón if you want them to know that you find them sweet.

14. Sexy/Sexi – “Sexy”

No prizes for guessing what sexy means – it's a recent import from English. Like many such anglicismos, the spelling isn't consistent. Sometimes it's written in the original English way (“sexy”), but sometimes it's written as sexi to better match Spanish spelling rules.

15. Estar Como un Queso – “Like a Cheese”

Finally, an amusing slang term from Spain. If someone tells you that you're como un queso (“like a cheese”), how should you react? Are they saying you need to take a shower?

Believe it or not, you’re receiving a compliment. Estar como un queso means “to be attractive/tasty/dreamy/hot”. Perhaps a strange way to put it, but don’t get offended if someone says it to you. They’re being nice! Or maybe your feet just stink – who knows?

A Warning about “Hot” in Spanish

Before we finish, a word of warning. If you want to call someone very beautiful in Spanish, you might think of the English slang term “hot” – but think twice before calling a Spanish speaker caliente.

While this adjective does literally mean “hot”, someone who's caliente is in fact aroused – and if you’re not careful, telling someone they’re caliente could earn you a slap. You have been warned.

For instance, Mexican slang is quite different from Castilian slang spoken in Spain.. These Spanish slang terms are so common you’ll hear them all the time in everyday speech in Spain.. The below Spanish slang words are from Castilian Spanish, the dialect used in Spain.. Baboso means “slimy”, but as slang, it means someone is an idiot or a dummy.. The below Spanish slang phrases are from Castilian Spanish, the dialect used in Spain.. A pretty vulgar (but amusing) Spanish slang phrase is Me cago en la leche.. It’s short for the much longer phrase Me cago en la leche de la puta que te date la luz , which means “I crap in the milk of the whore who gave birth to you”.. Ready to go forth and use some of these crazy Spanish slang phrases?

While there are regional differences even within the islands, there are many words and expressions that are used across most of the Caribbean.. Now that you’ve got some of the common Caribbean words down, let’s take a look at words that are unique to specific regions: namely Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.. Mi puro cantaba son en los bares.. El fufú es una comida difícil de encontrar en los restaurantes en Puerto Rico.. La juntadera de esta noche es en casa de Juan – “The get together is at John´s”. There you have it, 51 Spanish words from the beautiful Caribbean.

Listen to a recording in your target language, and transcribe (write down) the recording as you listen.Record yourself speaking the text that you’ve written down.. During the first step (listening and transcribing), I recommend that you listen to a recording in short segments, pausing and repeating the recording regularly to type or write what you hear.. With the Transcription Technique you’ll simultaneously practice listening and writing , then reading and speaking .. Making the jump from listening to materials prepared specially for second language learners (where speakers talk slowly, with perfect pronunciation and clear pauses between words) to a regular native speaker (who will likely speak fast, combine words and might have a regional accent) is a big challenge for many language learners.. With the transcription technique, you can not only practise listening to a regular native speaker again and again, but also learn to connect the sounds you hear to words and phrases that you may in fact already know, but which, at first, your brain didn’t connect to the sounds you heard... I’ll first list the phrases as a “quick guide”, then I’ll go in-depth on when to use the phrases.. “Bye” – 안녕 ( annyeong ) “Good Morning” – 좋은아침이에요 ( joeun achimieyo ) “Goodnight” – 안녕히 주무세요 ( annyeonghi jumuseyo ) “Please” – 주세요 ( juseyo ) “Thank You” – 감사합니다 ( gamsahabnida ) “Excuse Me” – 실례합니다 ( sillyehabnida ) “I’m Sorry” – 미안해요 ( mianhaeyo ) / 죄송해요 ( joesonghaeyo ) “Okay” – 괜찮아요 ( gwaenchanayo ) “Left” – 왼쪽 ( oenjjok ) “Right” – 오른쪽 ( oleunjjok ) Straight – 직진 ( jigjin ) “Please go to…” – …(으)로가주세요 ( (eu)lo gajuseyo ) “Where is…” – …이어디예요 ( i eodiyeyo ) “I don’t know” – 몰라요 ( mollayo ) “I want to speak in Korean” – 한국어를하고 싶습니다 ( Hangukeo-leul hago sipseubnida ) “Please speak slowly” – 천천히 말씀해 주세요 ( cheoncheonhi malsseumhae juseyo ) “The menu, please” – 메뉴주세요 ( menyu juseyo ) “Bill, please” – 계산서주세요 ( gyesanseo juseyo ) “I have an allergy to…” – …알레르기가 있습니다... Plus, there’s not a lot of guidance out there about how to use TV or movies as a way to learn languages, so most language learners just don’t know where to start..

That makes sense, since talking about the weather is something everyone does.“Nice day today, huh?”“I’m enjoying this sunny weather.”“I wish the rain would st...

Would you like to learn how to talk about the weather in Spanish?. Talking about the weather in Spanish also makes it incredibly easy to practice speaking.. Weather: el tiempo or el clima Sun: el sol Clouds: las nubes Rain: la lluvia Thunder: el trueno Lightning: el relámpago Fog: la niebla Snow: la nieve Wind: el viento Storm: la tormenta Sleet: las aguanieve Frost: la helada Hail: el granizo Rainbow: los arco iris Breeze: la brisa Temperature: la temperatura Degrees: los grados Season: la temporada Spring: la primavera Summer: el verano Fall: el otoño Winter: el invierno. Unlike the English word “climate”, clima can be used to describe current weather, not just the general weather of an area.. Sunny: soleado Cloudy: nublado Windy: ventoso Misty: neblina Foggy: niebla Clear: despejado Bad weather: mal tiempo Good weather: buen tiempo Hot: calor Cold: frío.. Most Spanish weather words relating to rain start with “lla”.. For example, since I’m from Ireland, when I’m talking about the weather of my home country I’ll talk about la lluvia (“the rain”) a lot, so that’s an important word for me to know.. It may seem a bit strange to use phrases that literally translate as “The weather makes rain,” or “There is weather.” But that’s just how it works in Spanish.. The Spanish verb hacer pairs with most words to talk about the weather.. It’s hot: Hace calor It’s cold: Hace frío It’s nice weather: Hace buen tiempo It’s very bad weather: Hace muy mal tiempo It’s sunny: Hace sol. Hacer is usually used to describe the feeling of the weather, so you can think of it like “It makes it feel hot” or “It makes it feel cold.” You pair hacer with descriptive words about the feeling of the weather outside.. Usually, when making small talk about the weather, you discuss how it makes you feel.

“My love” – mon amour “My dear” – mon chéri/ma chérie “I love you” – Je t'aime “I miss you” – Tu me manques “Beautiful” – beau/belle “Beauty” – la beauté “Pretty” – joli/jolie “Cute” – mignon/mignonne “Friend” – un ami/une amie “Heart” – le cœur “Feelings” – les sentiments “Lover” – amoureux/amoureuse “My sweet” – mon doux / ma douce “Angel” – ange. There aren't many French terms of endearment more romantic than mon amour , which means “my love” in French.. And that word is…. You can use it exactly how you would use it in English.. Don't ever say il/elle est chaud to describe a good-looking guy or girl.

Have you learned these Mexican slang words yet?. Learning Spanish slang terms helps you sound like a more natural Spanish speaker.. And not least of all, I’ve learned some Mexican slang terms along the way.. If you’re a beginner Spanish learner, you’ll want to use these Mexican slang words with care.. While it’s fun to learn slang, if you’re brand new to Spanish, I recommend that you start with essential words and phrases to start speaking Spanish now.. It can also be used to call someone a “bro”, or, in general, refer to a guy.. , which also means “What’s up?” But pedo means “fart”, so the actual translation is “What fart?”. La neta means “the truth”, but when used as slang, it has several different meanings.. Saying it to a stranger is a bit like calling someone out and making sure they know you see through them and what they’re up to.. This translates as “waters”, but when used as an exclamation, it’s a slang term for “Watch out!” or “Be careful!” You can use this in place of ayuda .. Chancla means “flip flop” but it’s become a meme in Mexican culture as the preferred weapon for every madre .. Here are some essential Mexican slang phrases you’ll want to know.. This one literally means “That what or what.” or “That what nor what”.. But it’s a good start to Mexican slang you’ll hear in the movies, telenovelas , and shows.

English has a few different words for different kinds of love, including fondness, affection, and infatuation (though one could argue that not all of these are actually types of love).. But when it comes to the word “love” itself, this one word can express all of these concepts and more.. I love my husband/wife I love my mother I love my best friend I love learning languages I love Mondays. No matter what kind of love we’re talking about in English, we can use one single word for it: “love”.. Why should the concept of romantic love (“I love my husband/wife”) use the same word as parental love (“I love my mother”), or love of an object?. You’ll recognize it as the root of the English word erotic Aγάπη (Agape) : In Ancient Greek, this word described a spiritual or charitable love, such as the love that God has for man.. Φιλία (Philia) : The general word for non-romantic love between equals, such as between friends and family, or love for activities.. Love for actions or objects (e.g. “I love learning languages”).. 恋 (Koi) : This word usually implies physical or romantic love, though in certain contexts, it can imply a more “selfish” type of love.. While Spanish really only has one noun for love ( amor ), when it comes to the verb “to love”, there are three different Spanish words to choose from.. Just like the word “love” in English can also refer to a score of zero in tennis, which has nothing to do with the feeling of love.. This word is most similar to the English word “love” when referring to activities.. Grá : This is the all-purpose word for love, which can be used in generally the same way as the English word “love” (for loving people, places, romantic partners, etc.). If you know of other languages that have multiple ways to describe different kinds of love, or languages whose nuances for love can’t be directly translated into English, I’d love to hear about them 😉

What if you could understand Italian conversations by only learning 500 of the most used Italian words?. In this post, I’m going to introduce you to 500 of the most important Italian words to know if you want to make your Italian learning more effective.. That means they’re the most frequently used words in Italian, and the words you’re most likely to come across if you’re listening to or reading Italian or having a conversation in Italian.. It goes without saying that the most important Italian words you should learn depend on your interests and the reasons that push you to learn Italian, for which creating your own script is a good idea.. The most used Italian word is arguably cosa , which translates in many ways in English — including “what”, “thing”, and “matter” — depending on its inflection, grammatical function, or the overall context of the sentence.. I also included some words that do not figure among the most frequently used Italian words in lists, but which are important to learn nonetheless.. modo – “manner” or “way” parola – “word” punto – “dot”, “period”, or “moment” lavoro – “job” or “work” stato – “state” caso – “case” or “coincidence” guerra – “war” nome – “name” fatto – “fact” amore – “love” storia – “story” or “history”, occasionally “lies”, “fuss”, and “business” in informal conversations forza – “strength” ragione – “reason” via – “street” or “road” capo – “boss” or “head” specie – “species” or “kind” governo – “government” senso – “sense” opera – “work” or “opera” prodotto – “product” festa – “party” gioco – “game” prova – “test” or “trial” misura – “measure” posizione – “position” successo – “success” vista – “sight” libertà – “freedom” risultato – “result” importanza – “importance” dubbio – “doubt” ricerca – “research” figura – “figure” or “image” questione – “matter” or “issue” pena – “pain”, “sentence”, or “pity” motivo – “motive” esperienza – “experience” ricordo – “memory” or “souvenir” politica – “politics” processo – “process” vino – “wine” porta – “door” sud – “south” sogno – “dream” cane – “dog” movimento – “movement” occasione – “occasion” prezzo – “price” causa – “cause” sviluppo – “development”. Before we dive into the full list of most common Italian verbs, let’s take a good look at the Italian auxiliaries, essere (“to be”) and avere (“to have”).. These 198 frequently used Italian adjectives and adverbs will make your Italian much more colourful and bring your Italian to life.. In Italian, the principal types of adjectives of number include the numeri cardinali (“cardinal numbers”), numeri ordinali (“ordinal numbers”), numeri moltiplicativi (“multiplicative numbers”) and numeri frazionari (“fractional numbers”).. Although these pronouns aren’t usually used in spoken Italian, it’s important to learn the 10 Italian subject pronouns to be able to study Italian conjugation.. il or lo – “the” (masculine singular versions) i or gli – “the” (masculine plural versions) la – “the” (feminine singular version) le – “the” (feminine plural version) l’ – singular “the” placed in front of both masculine and feminine nouns that start with a vowel.. un – “a” or “an” (standard masculine version) uno – “a” (masculine version used in front of words starting z or s followed by a consonant) una – “a” (feminine version in front of consonants) un’ – “an” (feminine version in front of vowels). del – “some” (standard masculine singular version) dello – “some” (masculine singular version) della – “some” (feminine singular version in front of consonants) dell’ – “some” (feminine and masculine singular version in front of vowels) dei’ – “some” (masculine plural version) degli’ – “some” (masculine plural version) delle – “some” (feminine plural version)

So what’s the best way to say goodbye in Japanese?. The most common, natural way to say goodbye in Japanese is actually to say じゃあね ( Ja ne , “See ya!”).. For a language that prides itself on formality, this may seem a bit casual, but think about how you say goodbye in English most of the time.. This means “Later” in Japanese, or “Well, see you later!”. But it’s very natural, and you’ll hear it often.. Here’s your formal phrase for leaving work.. You’ll say this to your boss and coworkers, and it’s always polite.. It means “excuse me for leaving before you.”. Yes, this is a way to say goodbye in Japanese!. In fact, you can use the casual form お疲れ ( otsukare ) to tell someone “good job” or “wow, you worked hard.” For instance, if a friend told you they spoke Japanese for a whole day, their brain might feel a bit weary after all that!. You can use this expression in the same way you would “have a good day” in English, but it sounds more like natural Japanese than よい一日をお過ごしください..
