How Well do You Know Latin American Spanish?

Spanish is such a rich language, there is always something new to learn. So there are new things to learn for not only Spanish students but even for a native Spanish speaker like me. For instance, did you know the word banana or banano is actually cambur in Venezuela? I learned this not too long ago, actually by talking to a Venezuelan friend.

This is interesting information that might or might not help you improve your speaking skills but will for sure give you a lot of things to talk about while you practice your speaking skills.
