    How can I say in English "El viento viene hacia aquí"
    Is it right for example "The Wind comes here"?
    Also "El viento entra por la ventana"

    I would say "the wind blows here," but I am not sure if that is accurate enough for what you want to say.

    And for the second phrase, I would say, "the wind comes through the window."

    I hope that this has helped you :)

    "The wind is blowing this way"

    I assume you are talking about smoke from factory chimneys or perhaps about hunting, or the weather, or.....

    Inside a room it would be more normal to talk about a "draught" (BrE spelling).

    Hi syd,

    Thank you very much!

    One more question about that. Is it right to say "The wind is blowing my way" to explain that the wind is coming to me, where I am? And how to explain wind´s direction?

    I would actually say: "The wind is blowing towards me", but most of the time it would be easier to say "this way".

    If you were discussing a photo, for example, you might say "towards these people", or "this/that way", if you were somehow indicating the direction .

    Regarding directions: as in Spanish, a/the north wind blows from the north. You can also talk about northerly/southerly/south-westerly/etc. winds and breezes.

    See wiki here for more information.

    Just another version----perhaps a bit more informal but often said.

    "the wind is blowing this a way".
