Por favor

Please

De nada

You're welcome

So let's start this lesson as if you were requesting something from someone. Here are some useful phrases. Please notice that there may be small variations in the way we address someone; if they are people we know (family, friends, people around your age), you can use the familiar/casual way of ''; if they are people you don't know, or elderly people, or someone with an authority position, you use 'usted'. Here are some examples:

Perdón

Sorry / Pardon

Disculpe

Excuse me (formal)

Disculpa

Si me hace el favor

If you please / lit. If you could do a favor for me (formal)

And some variations of 'por favor' that you may hear are:
