What does "vámonos" mean? I couldn't find the original verb. Is the original verb "ver"?
vámonos is an imperative form of the verb 'ir'
ir = to go
vámonos = Let's get out of here/this place.
Well, actually it's the imperative form of irse. Used in the first person plural these imperatives equate with 'let's'
so vamos=let's go
vámonos=let's get out of here, let's leave.
The 's' of the ..mos.. is usually dropped, if that helps you see how it is formed vámo(s)nos.
I used to be confused about this when Dora the Explorer said it.
holla so what is the correct word [words] for a singular, i am outta here. like when you were to sign out of a forum. vamonos is for more than one person.
My exact feeling brian. I was a biggest disappointment when it came to learning languages at school.
hola james. thanks for the come back. and thank you for busten me on, typing holla instead of hola,i usually type holla as a slang for holler back, i guess my fingers, were happy typing. so what your saying is that me voy is correct for i gotta go thanks again.but how do i pronounce it'
hi giti, sorry i took so long to get back, been busy. i took spanish in 8th grade. but it was proper spanish. you know the stuff know body speaks. i was young, there was this girl, well i didn't learn a damn thing. is that program rossetta stone worth the money. i wonder? you can show me something, but how do ya pronounce it '
"I gotta go (I have to go)" would be "Tengo que irme," while "I'm outta here (I'm leaving)" would be "Me voy."
The V (and B) in Spanish is pronounced in between the V and B of English. More explosive than the English V, but softer than the B. Just listen to natives say it, and try to copy them.
