Goodbye in Spanish

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!)

Some more Goodbyes in Spanish

Keep in mind that in most Hispanic countries people greet and say goodbye with a kiss. Usually in Latin America one kiss is given, while in Spain two kisses is the custom, one on each cheek; so don’t be surprised when a Hispanic person greets you with a kiss when you have just met!
