So buckle up, and let’s get started!

Picture this: You’re at a gathering with Spanish-speaking friends, and someone says they love the local cuisine. Your taste buds agree, and you want to express that. The words “me too” may come to mind, but why not elevate your connection by saying “yo también“? It adds a touch of authenticity and camaraderie that only a new language can provide.

Embracing “Yo También

Spanish is more than just a language; it’s a rich tapestry of culture, emotions, and expressions. Let’s explore the wonderful phrase “yo también” and how it fits into various contexts.

The Basics – Saying “Me Too”

The direct translation of “me too” in Spanish is “yo también.” But wait, there’s more! You may also encounter “a mí también,” especially in casual conversation. These phrases are like a friendly wave to people, bringing you closer to the vibrant Spanish-speaking community.

Different Ways To Say “Me Too” In Spanish

Among the most used ways to say me too in Spanish are the following:

Yo también

This is the most used and easy to remember, as it is the literal translation of “me too”. This phrase is made up of the word “Yo” (me/I) and “también” (too/also), which has an accent on the last syllable and is marked by a tilde (én).

Some examples in which you can see this phrase are:

  • “Yo también tuve acné en mi adolescencia.” – (I also had acne in my teens).
  • “Ella está siendo acusada por algo que yo también hice.” – (She’s being charged for something I did too).
  • “Tienes hambre? Yo también, compremos algo para comer.” – (Are you hungry? Me too, let’s buy something to eat).
  • “Así como tu conseguiste novio, yo también quiero hacerlo.” – (Just like you got a boyfriend, I want to do it too).
  • “Yo también estoy esperando un hijo.” – (I am also waiting for a child).

También yo

This translation is basically the same as the previous one, only in this case the words have a different order, but neither their meaning nor their meaning changes.

Some examples in which you can see this phrase are:

  • También yo lo hago – (I do it too).
  • También yo quiero – (I also want).
  • También yo puedo cantar – (I can sing too).

Some conversation examples using this same expression:

Necesito trabajar para ir al concierto – (I need to work to go to the concert).
También yo, ¿Cuándo vamos? – (Me too, when are we going?).

Estoy en shock por lo que acaba de pasar – (I’m in shock at what just happened).
También yo (Me too).

También a mi – (to) me too

Another phrase that can be said to indicate that something has also happened to you, only that this is not caused by yourself. The literal translation in English of “también a me” would be “to me too” although there may be many variants when translating it. 

Some examples in which you can see this phrase are:

  • Eso me pasó también a mi – (That happened to me too).
  • También a mi me dieron ganas de llorar – (It also made me want to cry).
  • También a mi me haces falta – (I also miss you).
  • Es posible que también a mi me regalen un computador – (It is possible that they also give me a computer).
  • Mis padres me regañaron también a mi – (My parents also scolded me).

A mi también – (to) me too

It is practically the same as the previous sentence, except that in this case, the “también” goes at the end of the sentence. This phrase is also widely used and is usually said a little more than “también a mi“. 

Some examples in which you can see this phrase are:

  • ¿A mi también me darán esto? – (Will they give me this too?)
  • ¿Te duele la cabeza? A mi también. – (Does your head hurt? Me too.)
  • Te lo digo porque a mi también me pasó. – (I’m telling you because it happened to me too.)

Spice it Up with Polite Words

Politeness goes a long way, amigos! Adding “por favor” (please) in sentences can make your speech sound more refined. It’s like adding a bow tie to a good suit!


It is possible to say the word “also” in each sentence without the need to use “yo”:

  • También he tenido te ocuparme esta semana. – I’ve also had you take care of yourself this week.
  • También vengo de ese lugar – I also come from that place
  • Estoy con ellos, pero también estoy contigo – I’m with them, but I’m also with you

This is because in Spanish it is possible to omit the pronoun “yo”, since it is tacitly included in each sentence.
