Spanish Idioms: Ir Al Grano - To Get to the Point
Hey this is Joel from http//:worldspanishteacher.com. In this lesson, I want to talk about a simple Spanish idiom.
The idiom is “Ir al grano” which means “to get to the point.” Now, literally it means to go to the seed or go to the source.
Alright, so when is this idiom used? Well, it’s mainly used in the context of business and work and meetings. So you’re not going to hear it a lot in social situations. And it’s also mainly used in the present tense. You’re not going to use it that much when you’re talking about the past.
So, now I’ll give you a couple examples:
“Vamos al grano, ¿a qué vinimos? – Let’s get to the point. Why are we here?
“Bueno, ya voy al grano” – Well, I’ll get to the point.
Alright, so that’s a pretty simple idiom, not a whole lot to it. Well I hope you guys learned something from this lesson and don’t forget, http//:worldspanishteacher.com. You can see more of my lessons, download my mp3 conversational course and practice your Spanish with native Spanish speakers.
