Hi jeanette, welcome to the forumgrin

Yes, you are right, this is a very common misspelling:

Ola =hola

However, ola really means, spelled like this, wavewink

"Hola" means hello. In Spanish, the "h" is always silent. "Ola" means "wave." Not like a literal ocean wave. Take a look at the dictionary reference to see what I mean. The dictionary at the top of the page as well as the translation tool work extremely well... try it out!

I hope that this helped!

  • "ola" is entirely appropriate when referring to the "wave" of an ocean. - samdie Mar 3, 2010 flag
