¿Que honda?

This is a phrase that you might want to learn and use, particularly with your friends. The literal translation would be “what wave”. In slang, it means, “What’s up?” Here are a few other phrases that are also used as “what’s up” greetings. Also: Que hubo? Que pex? Que tal?

Estoy loco por ti.

Literally, this means “I am becoming crazy for you” or “I am changing to insane for you”. In slang or common usage, it means “I love you”.


 

About Mexican Spanish:

As it happens, the Spanish language is spoken by hundreds of millions of people all over the world. And everywhere it is spoken in a slightly different variation. This is not to say that Mexicans and Argentines don’t understand each other. But what it does mean is that there are words you use in one place, that you simply don’t use in another place. Mexican Spanish has assumed quite an important role in the Spanish speaking AND the English speaking world due to the proximity of Mexico with the USA.

The Spanish language came to Mexico by means of being a Spanish colony. The Spanish spoken in Spain then evolved differently from the Spanish spoken in Mexico. This is why there are words, phrases and expressions in Mexican Spanish, that are not commonly used, or sometimes totally unknown to people from Spain.

This site is an attempt to collect all the features of Mexican Spanish that are different from the Spanish spoken in other places.

Feel free to contribute to the collection as it should be ever expanding.

Happy Spanish learning!

Saludos, the Mexican-Spanish Team
