There is / There are - There was / There were in Spanish - Hay Había

The good news is that it is very easy to say There is / There are and There was / There were in Spanish.

All you need is "Hay" to talk about the present and "Había" to talk about the past.

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

In English, we would ask: Is there any wine? In Spanish, you just ask: ¿Hay vino?

It is also very easy to talk about the past and you just use 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 examples, we use "No hay ningún". This just gives some extra emphasis to the negative and you can omit the word "ningún".
