How do you say “hello” in Spanish? It depends; if it’s an informal greeting, such as, saying “hi” to a friend, you would say:

Hola — Hello or, Hi

Or…

Qué tal? — What's up?

However, if you want to make a good impression to a new friend’s parents — whom you have not yet met — for example, you would say:

In the morning…

Buenos días — Good morning

In the afternoon…

Buenas tardes — Good afternoon

In the evening…

Buenas noches — Good evening

Note the spelling of “good” in Spanish; día is masculine, tarde and noche are feminine. So, use the correct gender of bueno.

If you want to meet someone and need a little more to go on that just “hola,” you must be thinking “how to introduce myself in Spanish?” — an interesting “scenario” article.
