I think my comprehension fail because the type of content is different but it s only for that or South America and Europe use so different Spanish?
And in Europe, what is the level of use of Spanish? only in Spain or there are more users like in US community? Thanks you
Yes, from Central America. As any Country of South America. Spanish changes, each country has their *Spanish* so to speak.
If i go to Colombia or Peru, they will half understand my Argentinian Spanish.
Because they have their own slangs, among other things.
The type of content and culture of each Country makes a big impact on the language.
But here in Argentina, *Buenos aires City* we have a *not so clean* Spanish, because, for example Colombian Spanish..examples:
How are you?:
Como estas TU? (not formal)
Como estas VOS? (not formal)
Can you explain me, what happened with mister X and his girlfriend?:
Puedes explicarme, que sucedio con el senior X y su novia? (Formal 100%)
PODES explicarme, que paso con el senior X y su novia? (Formal/Informal)
All depends on the region. We Argentinians we have a very specific tone, when you compare it with European Spanish you will notice the BIG difference.
