Jessi: Top 25 Spanish Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 21: Are you hungry? in Spanish (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Spanish learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question Are you hungry? In Spanish this is
Javier: ¿Tienes hambre?
The first word in the question is
Javier: tienes
Jessi: meaning have in English.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) tienes
Jessi: Listen again and repeat.
Javier: tienes
{Pause}
Jessi: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Javier: hambre
Jessi: meaning hunger.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) hambre
Jessi: Now repeat.
Javier: hambre
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Javier: tienes hambre
{pause}
Jessi: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Are you hungry??
Javier: Si, tengo un poco de hambre.
Jessi: "[Yes/No], I'm a little hungry.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Javier: (Slow) Si, tengo un poco de hambre.
{pause}
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
B: No, no tengo hambre
A: Which is like saying No, I'm not hungry in English. Let's hear it slowly.
B: (Slowly) No, no tengo hambre
A: And one more time at normal speed:
B: No, no tengo hambre
Jessi: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Javier: sí
Jessi: meaning yes.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) sí
Jessi: Now repeat
Javier: sí
{Pause}
A: And after that
Javier: tengo
meaning have.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) tengo
A:Now repeat.
Javier: tengo
{Pause}
A: And next
Javier: un
meaning a.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) un
A:Now repeat.
Javier: un
{Pause}
A: And next
Javier: poco
meaning bit.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) poco
A:Now repeat.
Javier: poco
{Pause}
A: And after that
Javier: de
meaning of.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) de
A:Now repeat.
Javier: de
{Pause}
A: And next
Javier: hambre
meaning hunger.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) hambre
A:Now repeat.
Javier: hambre
{Pause}
Jessi: Listen to the speaker say, [Yes/No], I'm a little hungry., and then repeat.
Javier: Si, tengo un poco de hambre.
{pause}
Jessi: To use a different phrase, replace a little with very.
Javier: mucha
Jessi: very
Javier: (slow) mucha (regular) mucha
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with very
Javier: Si, tengo mucha de hambre.
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace a little. Say [Yes/No], I'm very hungry.
{pause}
Javier: Si, tengo mucha de hambre.
Jessi: To expand on the pattern, replace very with plenty.
Javier: bastante
Jessi: plenty
Javier: (slow) bastante (regular) bastante
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with plenty
Javier: Si, tengo bastante de hambre.
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the {lang} for very. Say [Yes/No], I'm plenty hungry.
{pause}
Javier: Si, tengo bastante de hambre.
Jessi: To expand on the pattern, replace plenty with nothing.
Javier: nada
Jessi: nothing
Javier: (slow) nada (regular) nada
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with nothing
Javier: Si, tengo nada de hambre.
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the {lang} for plenty. Say [Yes/No], I'm nothing hungry.
{pause}
Javier: Si, tengo nada de hambre.
Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Spain and a someone asks you if you're hungry. You want to answer [Yes/No], I'm a little hungry.. Respond to the question.
Javier: ¿Tienes hambre? (five seconds) Si, tengo un poco de hambre.
Jessi: Now you want to say [Yes/No], I'm very hungry. Respond to the question.
Javier: ¿Tienes hambre? (five seconds) Si, tengo mucha de hambre.
Jessi: You want to say [Yes/No], I'm plenty hungry.. . Answer the speaker's question.
Javier: ¿Tienes hambre? (five seconds) Si, tengo bastante de hambre.
Jessi: You want to say [Yes/No], I'm nothing hungry.. Respond to the question.
Javier: ¿Tienes hambre? (five seconds) Si, tengo nada de hambre.
Jessi: You want to ask someone if they are hungry. Ask the question
(5 seconds)
Javier: ¿Tienes hambre?
{pause}
Jessi: Now it's time to answer the question with actual information about yourself.
Javier: ¿Tienes hambre?
{pause}
Jessi: This is the end of Lesson 21

No tengo hambre. Acabo de comer una pizza. (I am not hungry. I just finished eating a pizza.)

Hola Robert,


Grammatically the correct way should be "tengo mucha hambre" though we use both in the practice.


Saludos,
