Do You Know Any Spanish Slang Already?
Yes, you read right.
I've been looking over some more fun and less serious topics to discuss (save for the compound tenses). I really hope you enjoy this lesson on Spanish slang. It'll definitely make things feel more authentic when talking with friends in the language. Keep note that all the grammar I have taught thus far is formal grammar and used with family, acquaintances, coworkers, and the like. Though there's nothing wrong with using slang with your closest friends.
If you're wondering about something or have questions about a particular topic, let me know and I'll see if I can squeeze it in before I finish up with Spanish lessons.
Today's vocabulary list is a little small, but don't worry, we'll have more words to go over next week when we start discussing our next Compound Tense. Use these few words as a base to get back in the mood after a long Easter weekend! Nothing too serious. Watch the videos by Senor Belles. He's awesome!
Estar Listo(a)/Ser Listo(a)
To Found/To Base
Using Spanish Slang
So I guess you wanted me to list off some Spanish slang to you? Well, actually, I don't think there's any way to articulately explain how to use slang in Spanish. Watch the videos below, get a better idea of what sort of phrases are common and emulate those if you so desire. Also, take a look at this article on Wikibooks.
It actually splits up the slang by region... so yeah, it's all kind of different so it's too broad to discuss. However, don't fret. You'll find some of the words you want to use. There are some bad words there... I don't encourage anyone use bad words, lol. However, that's your prerogative.
Oh! Next week we'll start another Compound Tense. Don't forgot about that! I hope you enjoy the videos provided. Sorry that I couldn't write a discussion on these... frankly, I think it's best you do this on your own. It's definitely too broad to write about. However, I've provided the resources for your use.
- Is dependent upon region (Latin America Vs Mexico Vs Spain)
- Is fun to use, but only if you know what type of Spanish Speaker you're addressing. Sometimes they won't know what you're talking about
- Is just like using dialects. There is never an exact meaning
- Is just like English Slang. Sometimes it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
