ASK A QUESTION Andar vs Caminar
Hello friends, I am still learning so I hope this question isnt stupid but "caminar" and "andar" both mean "to walk" right? if this is the case, am i able to use them interchangeably? If not can someone provide a sentence for both as an example of when to use one over the other...
They are completely interchangeable. Andar, I believe, is more commonly used in Spain and caminar in Latin America, but they mean the same thing.
Hi and welcome to the SpanishDict forum.
Take a look at "andar" in the dictionary; it's one of those words that can mean lots of different things, and "walk" is just one of them.
Again, welcome to the forum...hope to see you around.

I suppose that, actually, some of the answers were quite pedestrian. jeje
