How to swear in Spanish: Common Spanish swear words and insults

This lesson is part of my “Colloquial Spanish” course which is aimed at giving you all of the necessary Spanish vocabulary and expressions for speaking colloquially in Spanish.

This is the video connected with a previous post in this course about “El lenguaje soez” – The Spanish “Low language”: Spanish swear words, Spanish insults, Spanish vulgarities, and Spanish profanities.

Click here to read that previous post and see all of the written lesson notes for this video about cursing in Spanish.

In this lesson we learn various common Spanish swear words and insults including: “¡Mierda!” (S**t!), “¡Joder!” (F**K!) or “¡Cabrón!” (Bastard!).

Everything in this video is vulgar, so use with caution. However, these Spanish swear words are much more widely used metaphorically in a naughty rather than rude sense and are nothing like their literal translations in English which sound much much harsher and more aggressive.

I hope nobody takes offence to the material in this video. I have included it as a bit of fun, but I also feel it is extremely useful as many Spanish people really do use these naughty Spanish words on a daily basis. 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 swear words, Spanish insults, Spanish vulgarities, or Spanish profanities. I have included in this video the ones that I can think of, the most common ones, but for sure there are many many more and I would love to hear your suggestions.
