ASK A QUESTION Hasta luego
Last night after bowling, I was trying to be "cool" so I said to my Spanish friend,"Hasta luego". He turned and said "that's not correct". He said I should say somthing like"nos ver.... ......". I couldn't quite hear the rest of it as I was walking out. But he made it sound, in almost uncertain terms that "Hasta luego" wasn't even a word. HELP PLEASE!
Interesting response from your friend. There are multiple things you can say when leaving a "night out with the gang" and "hasta luego" is one of them as well as "la próxima", "nos vemos", "chao/ciao", etc. I'm sure others will weigh in on this!! Have a great day and I hope this helps get the post started!!
Jason is right, hasta luego was maybe not the perfect choice, but it is perfectly valid.
You normally use hasta luego to mean: see you later
So here we could have said:
hasta mañana, nos vemos, te veo
"That's not correct" appears a bit extreme to me. He might have meant that it's not customary among his circle of friends to say that, these days.
I hope I'm right, because otherwise I will begin to doubt just about everything I've learned from Spanish textbooks over the years.
Hasta luego... o hasta pronto, o hasta cualquier...
