Bad Habits of Americans Attempting to Speak Spanish

Published by at 12:00 am under The Spanish You Already Know

“No hable español señor.” It is “No hablo español, señor,” not hable when referring to oneself. It is the same for comprendo(e). Placing the ‘e’ at the end of both words makes the subject incorrect . Mispronounced, it refers to the other person. Also, it is muchas gracias not muchos. It is wrong to say “No savey”. It is “No sabe” and it means “You do not know” not “I don’t know.” Finally, it is wrong to say “No problemo.” The correct Spanish pronunciation is “No problema.”
