Where do you use these words? Encantada/Encantado?
I tried to use encantada / encantado in Guatemala and I don't think it is understood as nice to meet you for a male or female. I was told that it means "enchanted"? Are these words commonly used? If so, where are they used.
Estoy encantado de conocerle. --- Yes this is very commonly used. It means I'm glad to meet you.
This phrase is used practically everywhere where Spanish is spoken. Can you write the sentence that you used for this greeting?
Hi Star. Just to expand on what Robertico said....
A woman would say "encantada" when introduced to someone new. (Delighted to meet you).
A man would say "encantado" (I'm delighted).
This expression is not regional -- it should be understood everywhere you go.
