Arriving Late? no worries.Spanish school Madrid & Tenerife


In Spain and Latin America, it is expected that guests will arrive “late” to a social activity, especially in the evening, in some South American countries, such as Chile, it is al

most considered impolite to arrive on time, as your host will probably not be totally prepared for guests yet. If you arrive 15 minutes to a half an hour after the stated time, you are considered “on time”. Late arrival is not considered rude or impolite.

This relaxed attitude does not extend to work or school attendance, however. For an interview, a job, or class attendance, arrive on time. When traveling by bus or plane in a foreign country, it’s safer to arrive on time at the terminal just in case (even though you may have to wait for your transportation after all).

En España y América Latina, se espera que los invitados a un acto social lleguen un poco”tarde”, especialmente de noche. En algunos países de Sudamérica, como Chile, es casi considerado de mala educación llegar a tiempo, ya que el anfitrión probablemente no estará totalmente preparado. Si llegas de media entre 15 minutos a media hora después de la hora señalada, se considerará “a tiempo”. Llegar tarde no se considera grosero o descortés.

Esta actitud relajada no se extiende al trabajo o al colegio. Para una entrevista, un trabajo, o la asistencia a clase, llegar a tiempo es vital.
