Street Spanish – Colloquial Spanish drinking and partying vocabulary and verbs

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 Colloquial Spanish drinking and partying vocabulary and verbs such as “Botellón” (Drinking in the street), “Devolver / Potar” (To vomit) or “Fiestón” (Great party).

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….
