Como se dice "Hey! What's up?" en espanol?
I know there is not much slang in Spanish, but I don't think the more formal greetings are appropriate with my friends. I was wondering if there was a more casual way to say "Hey! What's up?" instead of "Hola! Como esta usted?".
I´ve been waiting for someone to ask that.
How funny. I checked my ultimate Spanish reference (my Bugs Bunny comic book in Spanish.)
It uses repeatedly: "¿Qué hay de nuevo, viejo?" ("What's up, doc?")
From senior member at WR for "Oye":
Es como decir Hey! Es informal.
¿Que ahi tronco?
¿Que pasa tronco?
Qué tal? - right?
Now, I have also heard in some dialects of Spanish that "Hey!" would be translated "Oye!". It is also what I learned in my Spanish 1 class. Is this true?
¿Qué está pasando?
! hola ! que tal
