Spanish accents and dialects vary from country to country. And with over twenty Spanish-speaking countries around the world, you can hear a wide variety of common words and phrases, as well as trends in pronunciation that characterize each region.
In this video we collaborate with friends from Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, and Uruguay, to show you differences in their accents from around the world. Okay, so there might be a country or do in there that we don’t cover, but that’s because we want you to guess!
Test your listening skills and learn some common phrases from our friend’s countries. Can you guess where our friends are from?
