Spain Spanish: Everyday words and Slang

 

In this video, we are going to be taking a look at the difference between Spain Spanish and Colombian Spanish.  We are also going to learn some everyday words and slang from Spain.  As you know Maria is from Colombia so to help us with the Spain side we are talking with Manuel.  He is from Madrid, Spain.  Maria and Manuel are going to talk about the differences in vocabulary and slang used in each of there countries.

More from Manuel here:

What did you think?  Could you tell a difference between his Spain Spanish and Maria’s Colombian Spanish?  Did you find one easier to understand than the other?

Remember at the end of the day they are both speaking Spanish and are able to understand each other.  The same way that if you are a native English speaker in the United States you are able to understand a person from Australia.  Lots of Spanish students get really tripped up on the type of Spanish they want to learn.  Maria always suggests learning the type of Spanish from the country that you are going to be using it in the most.  So if you are planning to live in Colombia then a teacher that is from Colombia would be great for you.  You would hopefully learn some slang and words that are used in Colombia that might not be used in other countries.  However, don’t let that hold you back at the end of the day Spanish is Spanish and you will be able to be understood.
