English term or phrase: hello my name is caroline
to stat name and to greet somebody
caroline
Spanish translation:Hola, me llamo Caroline
Explanation:
Dear Caroline,

I prefer "me llamo" instead of "mi nombre es". Both are correct, of course, but I think the first one is a bit more natural. At least in normal conversation, I would never say "mi nombre es" but "me llamo"... but then again it depends on one's own idiolect :)

Best wishes!

PS: Saludos especiales a Elinor!!

Flavio

¡Hola!...mi nombre es Caroline


Explanation:
Hi Caroline!

Let's start at the beginning.

To say "Hello" = ¡Hola! ..If your PC keyboard has the capacity, the word "Hola" should be preceded by an inverse (upside down) exclamation mark "¡" and followed by a "normal" exclamation mark.."!".

Also, you can use your own name: "Caroline" or, if you wish, the Spanish equivalent, which is "Carolina"....it's up to you my dear.

So, you should write:

"¡Hola!..mi nombre es Caroline [or, Carolina"].

"mi nombre es" = "my name is".

Hope thishelps:-)
Regards:-)

Sorry Caroline!!!


Explanation:
I forgot to tell you that if your keyboard doesn't have the capacity for the upside-down exclamation mark ..."¡"..no big deal. Just write it as:

"Hola!..mi nombre es Caroline [or, Carolina]...whichever you decide to use.

Good Luck:-)
