¿Qué bola, mi hermano? Today we will learn some Cuban words! Wohooo!
Even as a Chilean it is quite difficult for me to follow the way Cubans speak Spanish. I’m not trying to discourage you but I hope that little by little we can help you understand Cuban Spanish. I actually think is one of the most beautiful accents and it is full of “sabor” and rhythm (as all Cubans). So, let’s see what can we learn today:
- Dale: literally means ‘to give’, but for Cubans it means ‘come on’ or ‘hurry up’
- Acere: means ‘man’, ‘bro’, or ‘buddy’
- ¿Qué bola?: Basically means ‘what’s up?’
- Pinchar: means to work
- Jeva: Widely used to refer to a woman or a girlfriend.
