Just like in English, Spanish has common phrases that are used in everyday speech. It can be a HUGE help to just learn some of these because they can keep you engaged in a conversation where you might have gotten lost otherwise. Spanish phrases like these are also a lot of fun to say!
Más vale tarde que nunca.
Better late than never.
Literally: It's worth more late than never.
When should I use this Spanish phrase?
Just like in English, you can say "Más vale tarde que nunca" when you do something late, but you get it done. You can also use this phrase when you arrive somewhere later than expected.
