Learning eh-slang via YouTube

We're coming on **two** years here in Mexico, and I'm finally getting around to understanding and using slang. Which pretty much means I'm finally learning to speak Spanish... While I highly recommend the blog Effective Swearing in DF for lovely explanations of slang, I find this YouTube sensation, Werevertumorro, to be pretty amusing. He teaches me lots of useful slang, and I like his social commentary on the craziness that often goes on here.

See how many references to Mexican pop culture, TV, and futbol you can get in this video:


  1. So funny. I have found myself wanting to say something to someone in Spanish when I'm talking to them in English because the Spanish term just seems to be more appropriate for the situation. ;)

  2. Hahahahaha...very funny video, thanks

  3. Amanda -- Have you also started using English translations of Spanish phrases, like now you're saying "more or less" when you never said that in the US?!?
