- Use voseo in southern South America
The tú (informal you) that we learned in Spanish class gets replaced by vos in Argentina, Uruguay and, to some extent, in a few other countries. It’s considered perfectly correct in Argentina, and particularly there, using it is a great way to show that we value the local version of the language.
- Use preterite (instead of perfect)
In the case of Latino American Spanish lessons, we are going to have to use the preterite a lot more than you would in European Spanish.
- Pay attention to Spanish in the USA
Spanish is the second most-spoken language in the United States, thanks first to the country’s long history of conquests in Spanish-speaking lands, and later to migration that continues to this day.
- Listen for pronunciation
Pronunciation varies widely across the Americas, making this a dangerous subject to generalize. But one thing we can say is that the accents have a lot in common with Spanish of Southern Spain (from which many people emigrated to the Americas back in the day).
- Pick your destination to learn Spanish in London and Latin America
The disadvantage of these places is that we won’t be alone. If our goal is to “lose yourself” in a Latin American culture, we can certainly do it anywhere, but it will take more effort if there are lots of other foreign students around.
- Pick up local dialects
In a misguided effort to be accommodating, people you meet in Latin America will sometimes simplify or even Castilianize their speech when speaking to a foreigner.
