Oye - Hey
Buenos días - Good morning
Buenas tardes - Good afternoon
Buenas noches - Good evening, Good night
Buenas - Hey

(Por teléfono)
¿Alo? - Hello?

How are you?

        La manera de preguntar How are you? puede cambiar dependiendo de la situación. Abajo, entérese como y cuando decirlo en formas diferentes en ingles. 

¿Cómo está usted? - How are you?

¿Todo bien? - Is everything good? (No es correcto según las reglas gramaticales, pero así se dice.)

¿What's up?

        No hay muchas maneras para decir What's up en inglés, pero puesto que en español cada región tiene su propia manera para decirlo, quiería que supiera como traducir las siguientes frases. 

¿Qué pasa? - What's up?/ What's good?
¿Qué pasó? - What's up?
¿Qué sucede? - what's up?
¿Que cuentas? - What's the word? (Una manera para de decir "Que hay de nuevo en tu vida?")
¿Que se cuenta? - What's the word? (Una manera para de decir "Que hay de nuevo en tu vida?")

¿Qué xopa? (sopa) - What's up?

¿Qué más? - What's up?

¿Que rollo? - What's up?
¿Qué onda? - What's up?
¿Qué pedo? - What's up?

(Republica Dominicana)
¿Qué lo qué? - Hi/What's up/What it is? ("What it is" apenas se usa hoy en día pero existe)

(Puerto Rico)
¿Qué es la que hay? - Hi/What's up?/What it is?

        Éstas son todas las maneras para saludar en inglés que podía pensar. Si me he olvidado de una frase que me avise. Espero que este articulo le haya ayudado. Para el próximo articulo, le enseñaré el vocabulario para responder a estas preguntas y frases. Por favor comparte esto. Gracias.

Best Sites To Learn Caribbean Spanish Slang (Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, & Cuba)

              At Bilingüe Blogs, we pride ourselves on teaching authentic Spanish, so that students can understand and communicate with natives in a natural way. Many slang words, and colloquial phrases are not taught in schools or other courses. Many dictionaries do not seem to contain them either. Typically, in order to learn these things, you have to befriend someone from the country that uses the dialect that you want to learn. Another option could be to travel or move to that country. Sometimes, neither of these options are possible, but there is no need to worry. You can learn practically anything online nowadays. With that being said, I would like to share with you some of the best sites for learning colloquial phrases and slang in Spanish.

I didn't know where to start or how to go about doing things. I just had a burning desire to learn. I reached fluency after a couple years, but I know that I could have learned faster if I had more guidance. My goal with this article is to give you that guidance that I wish I had and to steer you in the right direction, so that you can create good habits that get results from the beginning. Below are the 5 most common mistakes that beginners make when learning Spanish. 1. Focusing too much on time Problem: It always surprises me that the most frequently asked question that I receive from Spanish learners is, "Rickie, how long did it take you to become fluent in Spanish?" I have a lot of knowledge of the Spanish language, but people choose to focus on time rather than that knowledge. Maybe it is d
