Best Sites To Learn Mexican Spanish Slang





Thought you knew Spanish, because you learned it in school? Well, guess again! Every country has their own way of speaking Spanish and Mexico is no exception. Many of us are used to hearing a little bit of Mexican slang. However, It goes way beyond, "¿Qué onda, güey?" 

Mexico mixes native indigenous languages and many anglicisms into their Spanish. Not to mention they also have a way of giving nicknames to almost everything. This is why I have compiled a list of the best Mexican slang resources. A lot of these lists may repeat some of the same words and phrases, but that is OK, because on each one there are plenty of different words and phrases. If Mexican Spanish is the dialect that you intend to learn, you will want to bookmark these sites to be able to reference them again later!

Sites Written In English



(*Contains vulgar language*)


This site has a very extensive list of Mexican words. When I first found this list I was amazed, because Mexican Spanish is so different. Make sure that you write words and phrases down and study them, so that you can study them and commit them to memory. This site contains vulgar speech, which I am not a fan of,  but it is important to know it, so that you can know what someone is saying to you, or about you or someone else in a heated moment.




This site has more than the typical words that you will see on every single Mexican Spanish site that just teaches you words like, "órale." I was impressed with the word selection here, and how they were separated by category.

Sites that Are Only In Spanish

Explaining Mexican Spanish is easier to do in Spanish than in English. Check out this site to find some of the common words and phrases that Mexicans use all of the time.




5. Diccionario Digital

This site gets straight to the point with a long list of Mexican words from A-Z. I recommend that you break these words up and study them for weeks until you have completely learned them. I wouldn't tackle these all in one day.



     This list is full of words and phrases used in Mexico. It is lengthy which is good for long term learning. Pace it out, so that you don't get overwhelmed with these words.

Best Sites To Learn Caribbean Spanish Slang (Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, & Cuba)

At Bilingüe Blogs, we pride ourselves on teaching authentic Spanish, so that students can understand and communicate with natives in a natural way. Many slang words, and colloquial phrases are not taught in schools or other courses. Many dictionaries do not seem to contain them either. Typically, in order to learn these things, you have to befriend someone from the country that uses the dialect that you want to learn. Another option could be to travel or move to that country. Sometimes, neither of these options are possible, but there is no need to worry. You can learn practically anything online nowadays. With that being said, I would like to share with you some of the best sites for learning colloquial phrases and slang in Spanish. In this article we will only be investigating the Caribbean since they are close in proximity, and all have a very similar spoken dialect.

5 Tips To REALLY Master Spanish

Once upon a time, I had a my own Youtube channel dedicated to everything Spanish. I would translate songs from English to Spanish, and then make a cover of them. I would also tell stories in Spanish, even though it is not my native language and I am not Latino. Many of my viewers who were in the process of learning Spanish would always tell me how they admired my ability to speak Spanish as if it were my first language. The most popular question they would ask was, "How did you learn to speak so fluently?" Since I am sure that many others have the same question, I will share my secrets and tips on how to really master Spanish.

**Disclaimer** I did not do any research on these tips. I am solely giving information based on what worked for me.
1. Be serious about it



        The United States differs from other countries educationally, in that we have so many opportunities to learn whatever we would like, but we take them for granted. I have personally known many student…

No sabía ni cómo ni dónde empezar, pero tenía un deseo ardiente de aprender. Luego de 2 años y pico, podía hablarlo con fluidez, pero sé que pude haberlo aprendido más rápido si hubiera tenido más dirección. La meta de este artículo es darte la dirección que deseaba tener yo, para que puedas crear hábitos buenos que te darán resultados desde el principio.

1. Centrarse demasiado en el tiempo

Problema: Siempre me sorprende que la pregunta más popular que me hacen es, "Rickie, ¿Cuánto tiempo te tomó lograr hablar tu segundo idioma con fluidez?" Tengo mucho conocimiento sobre mi segundo idioma, pero deciden centrarse en el tiempo que me tomó, en vez de ese conocimiento. Puede que la culpa se deba a la adicción a la…
