Mexican Spanish Survival Phrases Lesson 44: Do You Have an English Guide in Mexico?
In this lesson, we’ll introduce you to a crucial phrase for travelers who are interested in learning more about the tourist attractions in Mexico. Because learning about the history and the cultural significance of places you visit, can be just as rewarding as seeing them. And you might want to read something written in your own language. So let’s learn how to ask “Do you have an English guide?”
In Spanish, “Do you have an English guide?” is:
¿Tiene una guía en inglés?
Let’s break it down:
¿Ti-e-ne una guí-a en in-glés?
Once more:
¿Tiene una guía en inglés?
The first word, Tiene, is a form of the verb “to have”.
(slow) Ti-e-ne.
Tiene.
Next we have una guía which means “a guide”.
(slow) una guí-a.
una guía.
Then we have en inglés which means “in English”.
(slow) en in-glés
en inglés
Altogether, we have:
¿Tiene una guía en inglés?
This sentence refers to a pamphlet about the exhibitions displayed in the museum, or archeological area.
To ask for a guide in a different language, we can just replace the word for “English” with the word for any other language and it works just fine. Let’s try with “French”.
“Do you have a French guide?” is
¿Tiene una guía en francés?
(slow) ¿Ti-e-ne una guí-a en fran-cés?
¿Tiene una guía en francés?
The only thing that changes is the language. In this case, it’s francés, French.
(slow) francés.
francés.
Now let’s try with German! In Spanish, “German” is alemán.
(slow) a-le-mán.
alemán.
“Do you have a German guide?” is
¿Tiene una guía en alemán?
(slow) ¿Ti-e-ne una guí-a en a-le-mán?
¿Tiene una guía en alemán?
See, it’s a piece of cake!
To close out today's lessons, we’d like you to practice what you have just learned. I’ll provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud. You’ll have a few seconds before I give you the answer, so !buena suerte! which means “Good luck!” in Spanish.
“Do you have an English guide?” - ¿Tiene una guía en inglés?
“Do you have a French guide?” - ¿Tiene una guía en francés?
