Most people who want to speak Spanish start by taking Spanish classes in their home country. They will study the formal aspects of the Spanish language: conjugations, basic vocabulary, Spanish grammar…. But once these are learned, you may find yourself traveling to a Spanish-speaking country such as Peru and realize that the local slang can be almost as important! For the students taking Spanish classes in Peru, we have compiled this list with ten pieces of Peruvian slang or ‘jerga’. We think it will be handy during your experience learning Spanish in Peru. This is the Peruvian Slang you Must Know! (more…)
