    Well "Lo Siento" means

    I'm sorry or I feel it

    In Spanish you can use Siento when you are sorry about something or when you feel something.

    For example you can say:

    “Me siento muy cansada” = Im feeling really tired

    OR

    “Siento mucho lo de tu perro” = I’m sorry about your dog

    In that phrase the subject is omitted. It would be "Yo lo siento" . And "siento", is the first person singular and comes from the irregular verb "sentir". "Sentir" can be literally translanted as to feel, to perceive, sense, to feel, to have a feeling for something or even hear, depending on the context. In the case you mention it means to be sorry, to regret.

    I regret it. That's the literal sense, but everyone just says it means I'm sorry.

    Lo= it

    Siento= I regret

    Trust, I know. I'm in Spanish 9-10 IB.

    Is when you do something wrong and you want to apologize you said Lo siento, or when a person die you said that too.

    It means "I'm sorry", as you said, and is based off of "I feel it" (siento is from sentir- to feel/ sense).

    It literally means "I regret it"

    but it is used in context as saying "I'm sorry"

    both have pratically the same meaning, so whichever were to make more sense to you
