Most common Spanish greetings

If you’re getting tired of asking ¿Cómo estás? every time you start a conversation in Spanish, then try some of these useful phrases out to impress your Spanish language partner:

¿Todo bien? - All’s good? What’s great about this greeting is the response is the same, ¡Todo bien!

¿Cómo te va? - How’s it going (for you)? Another casual way of asking how someone’s doing without using ¿Cómo estás?

¿Qué me cuentas? - What’s new? If you’re more interested in hearing what’s happening in someone’s life, this is a great way to find out.

¿Qué tal? - What’s up? Just like you shouldn’t think too much into the meaning of this English greeting, don’t think about this Spanish one and just use it!
