This free audio lesson is all about saying goodbye in Spanish. Spanish goodbyes are an important part of any Spanish speakers vocabulary.
Like in most languages, there are different ways to say goodbye in Spanish; the words and expressions will vary depending on the tone you would like to use: formal, polite or casual. Knowing these words and expressions are essential when learning any language as it would reflect friendliness and good manners (some people would see someone who does not say goodbye as rude)!
