In this Spanish video lesson from my advanced Spanish course we will be taking a look at many useful everyday Spanish phrases which utilise the Spanish word Hombre. This is the second lesson on this topic. Hombre is a word that you will probably already know as meaning “Man” in English, but you may not be aware of the numerous Spanish phrases which use this word.
We will be looking at more common Spanish words, such as Hombre and Leche (Milk), that are used in many other contexts to signify a wide array of different things. Sometimes the Spanish student will find themselves lost in a conversation with a native speaker who uses lots of everyday Spanish phrases and my aim is to familiarise you all with as many useful colloquial gems as I can so that you can understand and be understood wherever you may find yourselves.
