The Importance of Non-Verbal Communication

Published by at 12:00 am under The Sounds of Spanish

Facial expressions and hand gestures are extremely important when speaking Spanish. Words that absolutely require appropriate hand gestures include: un poco or un poquito (a little), un momento or un momentito (one moment), vete (get lost), ándale (let’s go), ven acá (come here), no gracias (no thank you), por favor (please) and lo siento (I’m sorry). Most Spanish gestures mimic English expressions, just with much more emphasis.
