Why should you learn Spanish slang?
Think when you are sitting at a café in Spain with local people, or walking down the streets : very often you hear expressions and you have no clue what they mean and can’t find them in a dictionary.
Spanish slang is the real way local people speak, so it would help to improve your overall comprehension and your understanding of Spanish culture. Last but not least, we believe that If you start to use some cool spanish expression, locals would really appreciate it! But mostly, it’s just super fun!
