Meaning of "Claro"

0

This may be a 'clearly' simplistic question. I watch the talk show "Escándalo T.V." frequently, in which the hosts use "Claro" frequently at stopping points. (Especially Charytín) I know the dictionary meaning of the word, but it seem like it is used as all right, O.K., or well. Am I imagining things'

Hi there
it can also mean "for sure".

Learn something (many things) every day. Is it still correct to say 'Soy húngaro de Budapest'? Please, correct my misconceptions.

No, it is "magyar" in English, but it is "magiar" in Spanish. Note that I wrote "magiar-español" and not "Magyar-Spanish".

Do not need one, I forgot Hungarian and never really mastered English. I frequently have to use on-line Hungarian-English dictionary when I call my sister in Hungary.

By the way, it is magyar.

No need to apologize. I was just going to give you some advice on what dictionaries to use, but I don't know any good magiar-español one. wink

I am sorry, must be my Hungarian showing. I used WordReference.com, and it definitely has 'claro' defined. Just my mangling of English language misled you.

I don't know the program (I don't watch much TV anyway), but:

Claro = agreed / true
¡Claro! = of course!

The Spanish dictionary says (translating it): "Interjection used to say that something is certain or assure whatever it is said".

By the way, what dictionary are you using that doesn't mention this use of the word'
