Which Spanish words will help me to greet someone?

Spanish Greetings

One of the most useful Spanish words is 'íHóla!' which means 'hello'. This can be used in Spanish-speaking countries at any time of day. Other options for greetings are: * Buenos días - good morning * Buenas tardes - good afternoon * Buenas noches - good evening or good night * Adiós - goodbye * Hasta luego - see you soon In some parts of Spain and Latin America, those greetings are abbreviated to 'buenos' for 'good morning' and 'buenas' for 'good afternoon' and 'good evening.'
