Latin American Spanish and Spanish from Spain compared

Most people from North America, Australia and other non-European countries are more interested in learning Latin American Spanish. The principal differences between Spanish from Spain and fromLatin America are pronunciation and some different vocabulary. A good comparison is between English from the UK and from the US or Canada - the different accent doesn't make an appreciable difference and more than 99% of the words are the same, so there is almost no difficulty in understanding speakers from any of these countries. Even within Latin American countries the accents tend to differ along with some words that are used more in one or other country.

If you are studying for the DELE exam it makes more sense to book your classes with one of our Spanish teachers from Spain, as they will be able to prepare you better for the listening part of the exam as well as with purely Spanish vocabulary.

Whichever course of Spanish study you choose with ¡oYe! you will receive the same level of attention from our staff, and we will apply the same high level of oversight and evaluation to your course. Your Spanish study plan will be independently reviewed by our academic director and detailed records of your progress will be kept for reference at any time in the future.
