WARNING: NSFW MATERIAL AHEAD.
A quick note before you continue: if you are easily offended or do not like foul language, don’t bother reading on. Bueno, entonces… sees learning a language as something that should be fun, entertaining, and useful. This means that we are willing to teach you things that you might hear on the street, but wouldn’t read in a text book. If you don’t like our method of teaching, it’s probably best you go learn language from a more formal program like Rosetta Stone.
Okay, onto today’s lesson!
Surely you’ve noticed that we tend to focus on Argentine lunfardo (slang), piropos (pick-up lines), and insultos (insults). Well, if you 1) don’t plan on going to Argentina anytime soon, 2) are interested in the slang of other countries, or 3) don’t really give a crap either way, today’s your lucky day! We are going to teach you some of our favorite insultos and slang from various Spanish-speaking countries, so here it goes!
Chupame el pico (Chile) = Suck my dick
Dejáte de güear (Chile) = Stop f*cking around
Malparido (Colombia) = Waste of life (badly born)
Jalame el hule (Costa Rica) = Leave me alone (pull my rubber)
Malfallao (Spain) = Tightass (poorly f*cked)
Araña (Mexico) = Hoochie Mama (spider)
Lameculos (Spain) = Brown-noser (ass-licker)
Hijo de la Verga (Mexico) = Son of a Cock
Alright, so this obviously doesn’t cover all the countries, nor all the necessary phrases, but it at least gives you a bit of a base. A really useful site for slang is Urban Dictionary (yes, even for Spanish slang), so it might be worth checking if you want to learn a little more about insultos and various slang. And let us know if you have any others you’d like to add to the list!
Isn’t this a good way to learn Spanish? 1) fun, 2) entertaining, and 3) useful. What more could you want? Plus, you’re way more likely to remember and use this stuff than, say, a worksheet of formal conjugations.
