As Spanish School El Zonte, we think that teaching slang is part of teaching a country’s culture. And El Salvador has a rich culture of slang words, also called “caliche”. Salvadoran People seem to be very proud of their typical slang.

The other reason is that as a Spanish learner, you will notice that it’s essential to know at least the crucial Salvadoran Slang words if you live or travel in El Salvador. Suddenly you will see that using at least a few slang words is like a “door-opener” in many situations and into people’s hearts.

Also, it’s essential to know which words you should NOT use. Sometimes you will realize that using slang isn’t appropriate. That’s also part of learning a language!
