The Spanish adverb 'poco' is commonly used to indicate a small amount or quantity of something. It can be translated into English as 'little' or 'few'. For example, if someone asks you how much time you have, you can respond with 'poco', meaning that you have only a little time available.

In addition to indicating a small amount, 'poco' can also express a lack of something. For instance, if someone says 'hablo poco inglés', it means that they speak little English or have limited proficiency in the language.

Furthermore, 'poco' can be used to describe an action done briefly or for a short period of time. If someone says 'trabajé poco hoy', it means that they worked little today or didn't work much.
