Bridging a communication gap can be a challenging predicament. When you speak English and you must communicate with someone who speaks only Spanish, the inability to understand each other's words may seem insurmountable. Arm yourself with basic phrasing and words to help begin rudimentary communication. If you learn how to say simple words such as "baby" in Spanish, you may begin to communicate on a basic level. Once you establish basic communication, you make a connection and the language barrier may seem less overwhelming.
Say baby in Spanish by saying "el bebe."
Place the emphasis on the second syllable of "bebe."
Pronounce both "e's" in "bebe with a long "a" sound. The "e" in the word "el" is short.
