    Default Meals

    Here is a thread mostly to our Spanish speaking natives. In the United States we use five terms to address meal times:

    1) Breakfast, a morning meal or first meal of the day
    2) Brunch, a late breakfast usually incorporating traditional breakfast and lunch dishes
    3) Lunch, the midday meal
    4) Dinner, used in different parts of the country to indicate a midday meal or late afternoon meal
    5) Supper, used in different parts of the country to indicate a late afternoon or evening meal.

    In Spanish I am only familiar with three terms: Desayuna, Almuerza, and Cena. Are there more and do they very as much as in English?

    En español estos términos son:

    Breakfast: desayuno

    Brunch: se usa el término en inglés, se ha impuesto sobre todo en el ámbito protocolar o de organización de eventos.

    Lunch: almuerzo

    Tea: merienda (o té)

    Dinner: cena

    Supper: cena (liviana), pero en español, no hay una diferenciación como en inglés entre "dinner" y "supper".

    Suerte...

    en français :

    les repas :
    le petit-déjeuner (breakfast)
    le déjeuner / le repas de midi / lunch (lunch)
    16 hrs = le goûter (teatime)
    le dîner / le repas du soir / le souper (evening meal)
