Just as American English is slightly different from British English, the Spanish language has many slight variations depending on what country or region it is spoken in.
Does that mean that a Cuban does not understand a Mexican, and vice-versa? They certainly do, in a similar fashion to how an American understands a British.
Even if Hispanics speak just one language, Spanish, Colombian Spanish is slightly different from Venezuelan, Argentinian, and Mexican Spanish because each country has its own slang and accent that makes it unique.
If you decide to visit one of these countries without knowing these kinds of expressions, you may feel a bit confused until you end up adapting to the local slang.
In this video, I'm going to tell you all about Spanish regionalisms. Make sure you stay to the end to know when you could just ignore them and when you should embrace them!
