How Much Is The Admission To The Game?

Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or colleague. Maybe you are talking about going to a football (soccer) match. The other person is concerned about the price of the admission and says to you something like: "how much is the admission to the game?"

In Spanish, the other person could say:
¿Cuánto cuesta la entrada del partido?

The question is an invitation for you to say whether or not you know the price of the admission to the event in question. Your reply depends on whether you want to say that you:
  • Believe you know roughly the price;
  • Know roughly the price;
  • Know the correct price;
  • Don't know the price;

Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Creo que cuesta unos treinta euros (I believe it costs around 30 Euros);
  • Cuesta unos treinta euros (it costs about 30 Euros);
  • Cuesta treinta euros (it costs 30 Euros);
  • No sé cuanto cuesta la entrada (I don't know how much the admission is);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Cuánto cuesta la entrada del partido?
