Afteer reading Ben's post that states that he's learning German, I rememered this alternative to make long distance phone calls. Let's say, that I look for an English/German tandem. I offer Spanish/German/English. Spanish however, is my native language.

Now, some might ask what the heck the tandem system is...

It is used to make a language exchange. I am learning one language and someone, sometimes, is learning the same language I know, and already speaks the language I'm learning. So let'ss do trade! Usually, you set an amount of time for each language - it's up to the users.

So, the offer is there, you may add my username to your Skype's contact list and you are set. I use the same nick here and everywhere.

Swearing is the first thing you learn when you are approaching to a new language. It's not only my experience. ;)

Don't worry TT my Spanish cursing is only good verbally.
I can't write Spanish for the life of me.

So there should be "No problemo loco bato amigo!"

AYE CORRRRUMBA!!!!!

I have never heard, nor read the word "bato". What did you mean with that???

And to make your phrase correct, you should say "No hay problema amigo. Ay caramba!"

This is something I love from these forums, this way to exchange things. Definately more than meets the eye.

You are welcome. :)

Vato...I have never heard that. Maybe you mean "chato (pronounce "shato")". You heard it from Mexicans, maybe? If the word "vato" exists, it is not used here at least. Spanish changes from place to place - even within a same country - and the slang is even worse.

I work in a noisy inviroment and all the mexicans talk with a low pitch and is hard to understand them sometimes. They are all a bunch of clowns.What does "chato" mean?

"Chato" has two meanings. One is "short", and the other is "dude". I personally like the word "dude" in English, don't know exactly why, but in Geman it's "Kerl". Haha! I abused that word in Germany. So add that one to your vocabulary Ben. You might need it.

Well this is where things get confusing...
I wrote down on a piece of paper "Bato, Vato and Chato" and shown it to a Spanish friend I work with. He said "Bato" means "Man / dude etc"
He never heard of the word "Vato" and the word "Chato" means dog.
Then he explained that the further south you go, the more the language changes. Then he wrote down some cursing words for me that I don't think would be a good idea to share here LOL

I don't remember the word "Bato", neither from Spain. Maybe they they are joking with you, but "dog"?????

However, it's not about the more the south you go, it's about the more isolated you are. For example, my country is all surrounded by mountains, hence we don't have much contact with our neighbors. However, in Mexico the language is pretty different. In Spain too. Even being up north in Spain.

You can send me privately the cursing words and I will try to translate them for you, LOL. Some of the swearing we use is considered fun by other people, and so it is from every country...

I AM NOT SURE WHERE MY LITTLE MEXICAN FRIEND IS FROM BUT I HAVE KNOWN HIM FOR ABOUT 4 YEARS.
AND BATO MEANS "MAN"
CHATO IS A FLAT-NOSED DOG.

BEFORE I PRIVATE MESSAGE YOU SOME CURSE WORDS IN SPANISH, I NEED TO KNOW HOW OLD YOU ARE SINCE MY MEXICAN SWEARING IS MOSTLY OF A XXX PORNOGRAPHIC NATURE. :wink:

I'm 26; don't worry, I have my own criteria already on what's life about. ;)

The Mexican swearing sounds fun to us Chileans. And I bet it is the same from our swearing to them.
