In this chapter, you learned how to make that initial contact with a Hispanic person. You learned details about when to use the formal and informal forms of address. If you learn this material, you will be able to talk about who you and your Hispanic friend are and where you are from.
Now that you and your Hispanic friend know a little bit about each other, you may want to get more specific about your respective families. The next chapter provides you extensive translated material on talking about the family and other relationships. You will be able to discuss marital status, what the family members do for a living, how the kids are doing in school, and how to say, "I love you" to that special somebody.
