Spanish Noun: Disculpas

Spanish Noun: Disculpas

Pronunciation: Dees-cool-pahs

Translation: Apologies

Function: Noun

When it comes the time to apologize in Spanish don’t use ‘me disculpo’ [I apologize myself] or ‘Doy una disculpa’ [I give an apology], because apologies are, like in English, offered… and they could even be rejected.

‘Ofrezco una disculpa’ [I offer an apology] is the right way to do apologize in Spanish, although you might find some countries in America where the wrong-way form ‘pido una disculpa’ is used the most.

Example:

Por favor acepte mis disculpas

Translation:

Please accept my apologies
