In 2013 we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Colombia for the first time. It was an amazing experience and definitely Jared and I would like to go back and explore it more. While in Bogotá we took some time to visit a couple of Spanish schools that prepared a special class for us on local Spanish. We learned a lot, but the most revealing thing was that depending on where you are in Colombia, it is like being in a different country. This translates to many aspects such as weather, clothing and of course Spanish!
So, we started defining the words we feel can help others understand Colombians in general; for example, parce, verraco, pelao and chino. We invite you to check out our list of Colombian Spanish words here:
The Quick Guide to Colombian Spanish ebook includes many of these words synonyms and example sentences.
