It is this sort of a fantastic post! I’d declare most important most important factor of Colombian jargon is the fact that maybe or maybe not upon which region you are actually visiting. In my situation it absolutely was quite imposible to appreciate folks up north the costenios but folks from Bogota and Medellin had been quite awesome to talk with. Im very happy my own six months time stop in Colombia got a whole great feel.
Very true! I live in Barranquilla and so the Spanish below the coast a lot harder for us to understand than in the inner! And simply like everywhere different countries equal different slang, generally there is quite a bit of teaching themselves to create. Youve grabbed the major kind present however! Excellent checklist ??

Many thanks for the additions, i believe a did hear llave while there nevertheless puzzled myself.
Mono or mona try slang for virtually any white or gothic people, it doesnt necessarily mean she thought you used to be sweet.
The secret to connecting in with the paisas is just saying pues every time you stop of believe.

Colombians become refreshingly immediate, however it brings some changing to.
