If you’d like to say “interesting” in Spanish, you would say “interesante.” If you’ve found something that is very interesting, you might use “muy interesante” or “tan interesante.” Or if you’re commenting on a situation that you find interesting—as in requiring more thought—you could say “Qué interesante.”
If learning Spanish seems complicated, remember that you don’t have to tackle all the options immediately. Especially with common words and phrases, getting a handle on a single option is going to work pretty well in most circumstances. As you progress on your learning journey, you can slowly incorporate other words with more nuanced meanings.

So it’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them. That way, you’ll be ready to handle situations with ease and confidence.
Learn Spanish Words and Phrase
Many people decide to learn Spanish because they find themselves encountering the language in their everyday routines. There’s no question, Spanish does pop up in popular music, movies, and TV shows frequently. Other people choose to learn Spanish due to plans to work, vacation, or volunteer in any of the 20 countries around the world where Spanish is the official language. Regardless of your reason, you can get off to a great start by first learning how to pronounce some basic Spanish words and phrases . It is a necessary step to understand and be understood by any of the 437 million people around the world who speak Spanish.
Unfortunately, new learners often get sidetracked trying to memorize lengthy lists of Spanish vocabulary words and phrases. This exhausting effort can lead to the unfortunate outcome of having little ability to participate in everyday Spanish conversation. That’s why it’s strongly advised that new Spanish language learners focus on understanding and pronouncing basic words and phrases. This practical approach to learning Spanish will help you become a confident and comfortable Spanish speaker.
It’s important to note that Spanish does have a few pronunciation distinctions that can make it a challenge for new learners. As one example, the letter r is pronounced differently and takes some practice for most new learners. This distinct sound is formed by tapping the tip of the tongue on the roof of the mouth, about a third of the way back in the mouth. Some Spanish language experts suggest new learners practice making the “tt” sound, as it sounds in the English word butter.
