Spanish Slang $35.00

In a regular group class, we teach you the Spanish that you'll actually hear on the streets, but this workshop goes even deeper into the concept of slang.

In all Fluent City Spanish classes, we teach you the Spanish that you'll actually hear on the streets as opposed to what textbooks and other schools will teach you simply because that's the official and grammatically correct way of saying it. If we didn't, even those of you who become conversational wouldn't be able to turn on tv and watch modern talk shows, listen to popular music, or read celebrity gossip magazines in Spanish.

In this workshop, a full 2 hours is devoted to helping you understand what slang is, why it is so common in every day speech, how to approach the major concepts of slang usage, and tons of specific words and phrases that will make you sound like real Spaniard instead of a boring, fancy, academic American trying to speak Spanish too properly for your own good!

All levels welcome, including beginners, as this workshop is taught in English.

The most challenging part of learning a language might be the moment when you first step into a foreign country and think, "Wait, … what?"

This rings even more true when learning Spanish, where even common words such as "ella" or "yo" can sound totally different depending on where you travel! Although at first it might seem like these are all random differences, they actually follow patterns of pronunciation. By understanding these patterns you'll be able to not only improve your Spanish pronunciation considerably but also your comprehension of the spoken language.

In this workshop, we explore the differences between the Spanish you hear in the classroom and what you'll hear in the streets of Barcelona, Buenos Aires or Cuidad de Mexico, just to name a few. You'll be introduced to the pronunciation patterns of the Caribbean, Castilian and South American Spanish accents. You will learn about concepts such as encadenamiento, which is a common occurrence in spoken Spanish and causes sentences as basic as "mis amigos hablan espanõl buy bien," to actually sound like "mi samigo sabla nespañol muy bien." In other words, you'll be able to get it when your Spanish friends say "wanna beer?"

All levels welcome, including beginners, as this workshop is taught in English.
