Lesson Transcript

Intro

Hi, everyone, I’m Yesenia from SpanishPod101.com. In this video, we’ll be talking about Top 10 Phrases Tourists Should Never Use. Let’s begin!
PHRASE 1
[Normal] ¡Que asqueroso! [Slow] ¡Que asqueroso!
"That's disgusting!"
Even if you are not a tourist, you should never use this sentence!
PHRASE 2
[Normal] Mi país es mejor. [Slow] Mi país es mejor.
This means "My country is better."
This definitely sounds racist, so it's better to avoid it.
PHRASE 3
[Normal] Preferiría ir a mi hogar. [Slow] Preferiría ir a mi hogar.
"I'd rather be back home."
Even if you like traveling, sometimes you'll feel like you'd prefer to be home. However, it's better to keep that thought to yourself!
PHRASE 4
[Normal] ¡Cállate! [Slow] ¡Cállate!
"Shut up!"
Never say this to anyone unless it's an intimate friend or your child!
PHRASE 5
[Normal] No me interesa mucho tu cultura. [Slow] No me interesa mucho tu cultura.
"I'm not very interested in your culture."
This is not offensive, but you'll make a bad impression...
PHRASE 6
[Normal] No me gusta usar conocer a gente nueva. [Slow] No me gusta usar conocer a gente nueva.
"I don't like meeting new people."
Being honest is good, but sometimes you may sound rude!
PHRASE 7
[Normal] Hay que solamente comer en McDonalds. [Slow] Hay que solamente comer en McDonalds.
"Let's just eat at McDonald's."
Mexican food culture is rich and people are proud of it, so avoid saying such a thing if you don’t want to hurt your Mexican friends’ feelings!
PHRASE 8
[Normal] ¡Que aburrido! [Slow] ¡Que aburrido!
"Boring!"
This is a strong expression and is not only about boredom but also means that you couldn't care less. In certain situations, this would be extremely offensive!
PHRASE 9
[Normal] Esto sabe horrible. [Slow] Esto sabe horrible.
"This tastes awful."
If you can't avoid saying this, at least try smiling while you say it!
PHRASE 10
[Normal] Voy a pasar el dia en el hotel. [Slow] Voy a pasar el dia en el hotel.
"I'm going to spend the day in the hotel."
People are not likely to get upset if you say this, but you won't look smart...
PHRASE 11
[Normal] Esto es tonto. [Slow] Esto es tonto.
"This is stupid."
Even if you think this, you should never say it out loud!
PHRASE 12
[Normal] Ustedes son gente incivilizada. [Slow] Ustedes son gente incivilizada.
"You people are uncivilized."
If you want to argue and fight with Mexican people, that's all you have to say!

Hola! Me gusta "No estoy muy interesado en vuestra cultura." Porque puedo usar hablar: "Yo estoy *muy* interesado en vuestra cultura!" ❤️️ (Si o no?)


Por favor correct my mistakes: I'm an absolute beginner who has picked up a bit of Spanish from mis amigos i amigas (estados se llamos mi Espanol "Spangle" porque es "Anglo" plus "Espanol") and telenovellas. This is my first comment, and first time on this site!
