Things are easy when you are motivated and interested.
When learning the Spanish language, there are many easy-to-grasp things depending on your motivation to learn. There are also several things about Spanish that make learning it really fun.
The Spanish Language in Latin America
Being the most spoken language in Latin America, Spanish has many variations and dialects. Many of these dialects in turn have their own meanings for words and expressions which can mean many different things across all of the Latin American dialects. For example, the word guayabo in Colombia refers to a hungover, while in Mexico it is called cruda and in Ecuador is called chuchaqui .
Native Spanish speakers are very animated when they talk. They tend to make dramatic facial expressions and use overly spontaneous body language. So if at some point you are struggling to understand what they are talking about, it will be slightly easier to interpret the message if you study the expressions on their face. The majority of the people in South and Central America are very warm and friendly, you are likely to find many people who are willing to help you whenever necessary.
When traveling through Latin America it is also very important to keep in mind that different expressions are used in different regions. This is important to remember when interpreting messages that can have a double meaning. For example, in Colombia we have the expression: por si las moscas, which could be interpreted as just in case. This expression may variations in the Spanish of Mexico or Venezuela.
Spanish accents are very diverse and playing around with them can be fun, especially since some can be more easily imitated by foreigners. It is very interesting to learn about the different accents that can be found across one country or regions. Spanish is a really fun language, and can also be very easy to learn when you find the right methodology for you.
