A young Venezuelan has gone viral on social media for confessing that he has been living in Spainand in all the time he has been in that country he has learned what things to say and what not to avoid spending it in an ordinary conversation with a Spaniard.
Baeley Addams left his native Venezuela to seek a better future in Barcelonaa cosmopolitan city where he has had to adapt not only to new customs, but also to a different way of expressing himself in Spanish.
Therefore, he decided to go to TikTok to recommend to your public, as well as to any Latino who is thinking of visiting or living in Spain. One of his first recommendations is clear: not to talk “neither politics nor football”Because? “It is a rather delicate topic and things can get complicated for you”.
Then, he also advises not to use the word “right now” which is in common and recurring use in Latin Americabut in Spain this could be taken as something “literal”.
Baeley continues his exposition and continues with the word “cum”, warns that this should not be said under any circumstances. The reason? In it iberian country this expression has a clear sexual connotation.
It also advises not to give the time in “am or PM,” so it is best to do it using “military time”. Finally, the tiktoker Venezuelan asks not to be scared or offended “because of the way the Spanish speak”since these are “quite blunt when it comes to saying things, but it doesn’t mean they’re upset or scolding you”.
“Correct and not make noise and music in the house”, “understand that we have our customs and way of doing things, learning and adapting is essential”, “break time at noon, do not play loud music, respect for rest it is sacred”, “here the cars stop at the pedestrian crossings”, “I would add: ‘go to the big one, say things directly without going around so much’”, “don’t play loud music”, were some of the comments in the viral video.
