Street Spanish – Colloquial Spanish positive titles and adjectives for people
This lesson is part of my “Street Spanish” course which is aimed at giving you all of the necessary Spanish vocabulary and expressions for speaking colloquially in Spanish.
In this lesson we will learn various Spanish colloquial titles and adjectives for people in Spanish such as “Ser unas risas” (to be funny), “Cuerpazo” (great body) or “Tener un par de huevos” (to be brave).
The Spanish vocabulary and expressions that you will find in this course are not the kind that you will find in regular textbooks and some should be used with caution as they are quite vulgar, but I want to give you an insight into exactly how Spanish people really speak on the street.
I would like to invite you to add you own additional Spanish phrases relevant to this topic. I have listed here the Spanish phrases that I can think of, but for sure there are many many more and I would love to hear your suggestions. Please use the comment form below….
