As I studied Spanish in Spain for almost a year before my stay in Buenos Aires, I speak Spanish with a “Spanish” accent.
When choosing where to do my internship, I chose Argentina. I had always been curious about the Argentine culture and I would be immersed in good, clear and slow Spanish, that’s what I thought.

And all those immigrants created their own “Spanish”, a kind of “Spatalian”. That’s how the Spanish language of the conquistadores was turned into that new language, with that typical ‘Argentine sound’.
