Why do some people think Mexican is a language? and why do some people think all Spaniards speak Spanish?

funny, isn’t it?? Mexicans never had their own language, they speak Spanish, but sometimes my friends see some Latinos talking to each other in Spanish and then they whisper "listen, isn’t it Mexican? It sounds like they speak Mexican. They look like they are Mexican." And I was like "Is Mexican a language???"

my other question is why do some people think all Spaniards speak Spanish?
I have no idea. Once me and a friend were talking with a tourist and at the end we asked him "were are you from?" he said he was from Spain, and my friend automatically said "oh, we study Spanish at school" yes we do but not all Spaniards speak Spanish,…my friend tried to say some words but the man didn’t understand anyways because he speaks Gallego "I speak Gallego, not Spanish".

Hahah it was funny because my friend didn’t understand a f***

in Spain people speak Castilian (what we call Spanish), or Catalan, Gallego, Euskera, etc.

  1. When the say mexican, it’s probably because of the way they speak thier spanish. every latino country has different words and different ways of saying things, for example, to say "come over here", a mexican would say "ven para aca" while a…..puerto rican would say " ‘cha pa ka’ " but we all speak spanish.
    And spanierds, my family is Canarian and even we have a couple of different dialects. My friend from spain speaks Catalan and we’re from the same country, different languages. People are just ignorant

  2. Yeah, and not all Mexicans speak Spanish, some speak Nahuatl, Maya, Mixtec…you know?

    Anyways, the closes thing to a true Mexican language is Nahuatl, which was spoken by the Mexica people. The original Mexicans.

    I kinda wondered if other ethic groups had their own language in Spain, like Catalan. I always thought they spoke similar languages with different dialects or something.

    It kinda annoys me when people speak "spanish" to me because I’m Guatemalan American. But it’s not a big deal.

  3. ehhhhhhhh every spaniard speak Castilian (spanish)……. and spaniards from areas like Galicia or Catalonia or Basque country also speak their own language.

    So if the guy said that he doesn’t understand spanish he’s messing with you basically for two reasons:

    1. Every spaniard speak spanish besides their own language

    2. Galician and Castilian are so close that any castilian would understand a galician person speaking in galician and the other way around.
