Expresiones: Spanish Language and Mexican Arts

In Latin American Countries, food and drinks are usually part of informal conversations with family or friends.
Latin people often offer something to eat or drink to their guests.

“¿Quieres un café?” (Kee-eh-rehs oon kah-feh)
If you want to say Would you like a coffee? you can say: “¿Quieres un café?”

You can use this expression with anything you would like to offer:
“un té” (oon teh) – a tea “¿Quieres un té?”
“un helado” (oon eh-lah-doh) – an ice cream “¿Quieres un helado?”

Note: In Spanish, question marks and exclamation marks go at the beginning and at the end of the sentence.
