Do the people of Spain complain about the way Mexicans speak spanish?

Cause the British sure get bent out of shape about the way Americans speak english.

  1. It’s like someone said, they both think the other speaks strangely. I speak Mexican-American Spanish, so my dialect most closely resembles Mexican Spanish. I find it odd that many Spaniards randomly develop temporary lisps.

    Every dialect sounds different. I also find Cuban spanish to be a bit peculiar at times. It’s just a perspective thing. Much like comparing American English, Canadian English, British English, Australian English, etc.

  2. Hell, I’m American andI get bent out of shape the way most Americans speak English, or should I say gutter trash.
    Yo Yo, babymama, He be, we be, shizle this and whatever the hell crawls out of the ignorant shallow end of the gene pool throwbacks.
    It’s a shame that with all of the dictionaries, encyclopedias, newspapers, news websites, etc… that americans go out of their way to sound like ignorant, uneducated morons.
    Over 100 million cell phones in the hands of kids during school texting each other all day long and people wonder why they can’t pass tests and graduate.

  3. Yes – and vice versa. My Peruvian daughter-in-law is utterly convinced that Spanish spoken in Spain is of poor quality and uneducated-sounding, and no amount of argument to the effect that Spain is where the language originated will convince her.

    The arguments that fly back and forth are very reminiscent indeed of those heard in discussions about UK and US English.

  4. I AM LIVING IN SPAIN. I AM AMERICAN, BUT I AM ALSO HAVE PERUVIAN BECAUSE OF MY MOTHER. I SPEAK ‘LATINO’ SPANISH , WELL SOMEWHAT. HEARING SPANIARDS TALK IS KINDA OF WIERD BECUASE IN THE US WHEN PPL LEARN TO SPEAK SPANISH THE LEARN THE LATION WAY MOSTLY. WHEN I CAME TO SPAIN 3 MONTHS AGO I WOULD HERE SPANIARDS SPEAK. THEY HAVE A TEMPORARY LISPS AT RANDOM TIMES. I THINK ITS A LITTLE WIERD BECAUSE IT SOUND LIKE A SPEACH PROBLEM. WHATEVER I AM NOT A SPAINARD SO I CANT TELL THEM THEY ARE WRONG ITS DIFFERENT. BUT IT MAKES THEM SOUND KIND OF SLOW. EVEN THOUGH THEY MAY NOT BE.
    I RESPECT THE WAY THEY SPEAK BUT ITS NOT A DIALECT I WILL BE PICKING UP.
