Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone! I'm Alisha.
Welcome to Conversational Phrases!
We've found that the best way to learn a language is to speak it from day one! And the best way to start speaking is to learn phrases that you'll use in real conversations.
In this lesson, you'll learn conversational phrases to use when apologizing to someone. After watching this video, you'll be able to apologize and say what you're apologizing for.
Now, let's take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Siento llegar tarde.
No te preocupes.
Once more with the English translation.
Siento llegar tarde.
“I'm sorry for being late.”
No te preocupes.
“Don't worry about it.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say "I'm sorry for [reason]."
The pattern is: Siento [reason].
This Spanish sentence literally translates as "I feel [reason]." But it means "I'm sorry for [reason].".
For example:
"I'm sorry for being late."
Siento llegar tarde., Siento llegar tarde.
Now, how do you respond that it's okay?
No te preocupes.
"Don't worry about it."
Listen to it again: No te preocupes., No te preocupes.
This Spanish sentence translates as "Do not worry you." But it means "Don't worry about it."
