A1 - There is There are - There was there were in Spanish - Hay Había

The good news is that to say "There is - There are  and  "There was  and there were " in Spanish is very easy.

All you need is "hay" in the present and "había" in the past.

In English we make this quite complicated because we use "some" and "any" with there is.

In English we would ask - Is there any wine?  in Spanish this is just  ¿hay vino? 

It is also very easy to use in the past just us había instead of hay. 

The pronunciation of "hay" is the same as "I" in English because the "h" in Spanish is always silent.

Learning how to use "hay" is probably the most useful and easiest thing you can learn in Spanish.

In a couple of the example we use "No hay ningún" This just gives some extra emphasis to the negative. The "ningún" could be omitted
