    Spanish is a relatively easy language to learn if you already know English. Some basic phrases are

    hola=hello

    como estas?=how are you

    donde esta el bano?=where is the bathroom

    me permite tener dinero/comida/algo/ir al bano....=may I have money/food/something/go to the bathroom

    que piensas?=what do you think?

    no problema=no problem

    puedo divinar=I can guess

    tengo hambre/sueno= I am hungry/tired

    Cuan is like pronounced like Kwon and Juan Carlos is Whan Car- los
