Talking about internet in Spanish When you learn a language your final goal is communicate with other people

You learn a language so it will allow you to have conversations with native speakers, and as the time evolves so do the subjects you can talk about, like nowadays technology is key,  and I am telling you that-that I am not technie at all! But still is something in our life and we use it quite often, that is why I thought a bit of vocabulary related with that subject will help your future conversations while talking about internet in Spanish.

So if you are ready let’s dive in in  the digi-word 🙂

Talking about internet in Spanish

 

I will first give you some questions, ok maybe just one, but it is really important nowadays…

¿Cúal es tu correo electrónico?                  What is your email address?

This is something you need to learn, a few years back it was common to ask ¿Tienes correo electrónico? Meaning “Do you have email address?”-But really…who does not have one today?

Here the important thing you need to know is the alphabet because probably you will need to spell your email and you basic thing

@–> arroba and  .–> punto

If you are one of the unlucky ones and your email has too many things you might also need

/ –> barra or _–> barra baja, maybe even – –> guión

 

Some other questions could be

¿Utilizas mucho internet?                                            Do you use internet a lot?

¿Eres bueno con las nuevas tecnologías?              Are you good with new technologies?

 

Ok seen that let’s start for the basic words, the basic you need to get involved in this digi-world

AH! #importantNote wi-fi, as it is one of the first questions you probably ask in a bar, restaurant, hotel…etc…wi-fi is wifi, yeah easy! But do not forget the Spanish pronunciation 🙂

If you have any questions about other words related with internet..please fire away! Leave a comment below and I will reply you straight away,

 

HOMEWORK-the homework for this week is pretty much a challenge! I challenge you to change the language either of your phone or your computer, -or WTH! Both of them! Change your actual language in your Spanish, now that you have read once (at least in this article) the words is important you get familiar with them, and seeing them day in and day out will help…and think about it, will it be that different? You probably know by heart the actions on your phone, you will just see them in Spanish, which is a good learning practice 🙂

Come over to the comments and let me know if you are going to try or even if you already have done it and how it went .

Looking forward to reading your comment!

Also remember that now it is your turn, if you like the post or you know someone who is learning Spanish and could take advantages of this blog, please SHARE IT! Let’s spread the Spanish word around 🙂

I hope you enjoy this blog and found it useful.

I will write you soon 🙂
