This video is hilarious :D

It's hard even for us the Spaniards when they start to use Latin-American slang hehe.

And vice-versa, the Spaniards also have difficult slang.

I was suspicious about their accent. The R's where a bit too overdone in comparison to the rest of the letters/syllables, which were perfectly pronounced. I later confirmed that they were native speakers faking it!

It's incredible how R's tell so much about someone :o

They forgot to include "coger", a problematic verb.

it is a very problematic verb n.n coger (take) in spain coger (have sex) in most of latin countries. take in mexico = tomar/sujetar/llevar; "tomar" in méxíco also = beber (drink). Yo tomo agua= Yo bebo agua (I take water ≠ I drink water). n,n the spanish is crazy! very crazy!

Great Video, It's funny though, since I am learning and others know that I am learning, I am always corrected on how to say something based on their region of Spanish... I get sooo confused!

Very funny! On the last day of class, teacher gave a powerpoint presentation about all the mistakes that native speakers of Spanish make when learning English. It was hysterically funny and I had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. The thing is, when learning any language there are always dual /multiple meanings to words. We all make funny errors when learning a new language, so we are all in the same boat so to speak. While I enjoyed the present video a lot, I hope that it isn't discouraging to anyone.
