Hello to everyone,

In an effort to encourage my children to speak the language. How would tell my child "Ask me in Spanish"?

Thanks in advance

p.s. Sorry moderators I did it again! I'm sure you'll move this to general vocabulary. . . lol.

    Thanks, Rayines I would like which ever one is the most authentic. Authentic isn't the right word, but I think it gets the point across.

    greetings

    I'd say "Mejor preguntame/hablame en español" (Argentinian version)
    "Mejor pregúntame/háblame en español"(Spanish :thumbsup: version)

    Or, if you want them to ask for something in Spanish, it's

    Pídemelo en español.

    since there are two Spanish words related to "ask":
    to ask something (ask a question): preguntar
    to ask for something: pedir

    But, as mentioned above, you can cover both possibilities by saying "háblame en español" (talk to me in Spanish) or "dilo en español" (say it in Spanish). However, from personal experience, I can suggest that pressure like this can have the result of turning them off the language, just the opposite of what you want. YMMV (your mileage may vary)
