Golden Spanish phrases Spanish is a rich language, and as you might, or you might not know it has plenty of sentences, expressions…prefixed! That is awesome as they can give you some golden Spanish phrases you can use without thinking about the grammar, that is always a win!

In today’s blog I wanted once again talk about the riches of the Spanish language.

Spanish language has lots of touches and that is amazing as we have some prefixed sentences we can start using straight from the gate. Today I have some golden Spanish phrases for you, they are fixed sentences you can use as they are, not grammar required (woohoo).

But… I did not want to tell you before so you keep reading and don’t panic, but this golden Spanish phrases I got for you use the subjunctive! You are probably shaking if you have heard about the subjunctive before, and if you haven’t, don’t worry, don’t even try to look up what it is! Just let me tell you, you are lucky, as you will have a head kick start! Before keep going let me tell you I am not going to go into detail in the subjunctive, at least today, but you are going to learn some golden Spanish phrases that use the subjunctive and they are super common.

In these phrases the subjunctive is already formulated, so you don’t need to think about the use, the grammar, nothing! Well…you just need to pay attention and find the situations where you could use them ( I bet you find plenty).

That’s been said, here they are:

 

Golden Spanish phrases

 

Que you recuerde-as far as I remember

 

Que yo sepa-as far as I know

 

Cueste lo que cueste-whatever the cost

 

Pase lo que pase-whatever happens

 

Sea lo que sea-be that as it may

 

Por (adjetivo) que sean-however (adjective) they may be/as (adjective)as they may be

 

Quienquiera/quien sea-whoever

 

Dondequiera/donde sea-wherever

 

Comoquiera/como sea-however

 

IMPORTANT NOTE-keep in mind that quienquiera/quien sea (whoever), dondequiera/donde sea (wherever) and comoquiera/como sea (however) are followed by subjunctive, so if you haven’t learn it yet you could just use these ones on answer not in full sentences.

 

-quienquiera/quien sea (whoever), If you are organizing a party and one of your friends ask you:

¿Quién quieres que te ayude a organizar la fiesta?         Who do you want to help you organize the party?

But you don’t care who helps you as long as someone does you could reply:

Quienquiera/quien sea   whoever

 

-dondequiera/donde sea (wherever)

If you are talking you want to go on holidays and someone ask you

¿Dónde quieres ir de vacaciones?           Where do you want to go on holidays?

But you don’t care where to, you just want to go you could say:

Dondequiera/donde sea                              Wherever.

 

-comoquiera/como sea (however)

If you are tidying up your library and your friend wants to help you and ask

¿Cómo quieres que ordene los libros?   How do you want me to order the books?

And you don’t care, you just want them on the shelves you can say

 

Comoquieras/como sea                               however

 

If you want to have these golden Spanish sentences with the subjunctive already formulate (and some examples) you can download them in pdf here.

 

I hope you enjoyed these gems and  you find them helpful in your Spanish conversations.

 

Once you have the chance to read I would love to hear from you

-Are there any other sentences you would like to know in Spanish?
