How to say 'dear' in Spanish.

If you're writing a letter and you wanted to say something like 'dear mom' or 'dear dad, in Spanish, you would say, "Querida mama." Let's try that again: Querida mama. Now for the dad; dear dad would be 'Querido papa'. Let's try that again: Querido papa. Let's try those again. Repeat after me: Querida and querido.

This is something that comes up with English-speakers when they want to learn how to say, for example, 'my dear aunt Suzy. Giving the quality or 'dear' to a person, it would be the same word in Spanish. That's an easy one to learn; it's going to be the same thing. 'Querida tia', for 'my dear aunt'. Repeat after me: Querida tia. Querido tio; my dear uncle. Same words and they both mean 'dear' in Spanish.
