Since then I have lived in two other Spanish speaking countries, lost the Mexican accent and am often more comfortable speaking Spanish than English. My Spanish, at this point, is a hodgepodge of vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar pulled from several countries, which may only be described as, well, a hodgepodge.
Surprisingly, this has turned into a long-term project for me, with four books soon to be available, as well as learning aids and a website. My hope is to help people communicate more easily and to have fun during the learning process. Chile is an amazing place where I can walk off the plane and in five minutes feel at home.

Santiago is an entertaining place to visit, to relax and to socialize. For me, it is always a wonderful escape. Santiago January 27th, Introduction 7. Nor is there any scientific basis for what appears here. This is a guide based on my personal experience and research. There will be, without a doubt, disagreement with something I have written here. If you have the time, write me and share your comments or correct me. There are a couple general ideas to keep in mind as you peruse the book. For example, the words are written as close to their grammatically correct spellings as possible.
This is not always easy or clear, given that the same word may be pronounced several ways, may drop some letters in the pronunciation, and may in some cases have entered into the daily verbal lexicon only recently, not having yet allowed sufficient time for a general spelling to be accepted. The pronunciation section will help you track down the exact location of some of these words. Barring that, ask someone for help. You will see the following symbols throughout the book, which are meant to make your life easier: How to Use this Guide 8.
M Dangerous word - these are either insulting to someone or just flat out naughty words. Since this is a guide to Chilean slang, I have left out many of the more common definitions for words.

The most important and perhaps obvious is to communicate better. Perhaps the best reason is to make people laugh. How do you achieve this? Focus on the basics. There are four major components to speaking like a Chilean. They are: 1. Vocabulary 2. Grammar 3. Pronunciation 4. Intonation Vocabulary is perhaps the most time consuming.

In my opinion, the hardest of the four areas is to mimic the Intonation of a language consistently. This requires lots and lots of practice at least for me. What I want to do here is to make you aware of some of the typical Chilean nuances, so you have a base from which you may continue exploring.
Chileans, more so than most other Spanish speaking people, have a pronounced rhythm to their sentences, and this rhythm can change the meaning of a sentence. For example, the phrase muy malo can take on different meanings depending on how it is pronounced. On the other hand, to pronounce it mweee maaaaaaAAAlo dragging out the As and using a higher voice as you progress through the As is more likely to mean something of bad quality. Generally speaking, Chileans vary the pitch of their words and phrases more so than I have heard in other countries.
Just a few kms outside of Marbella, at the Rio Real slip road head for the beach.

At night it is delightfully lit with tables well-placed for you to dine on the terrace or, if it is windy inside , but still with a great view. Service a bit mixed , been for afternoon drinks and found it quite slow but in the evening it was a different story, great staff and plenty of them to look after you.
We had dinner as a group of six and thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu is very comprehensive, if anything far too many cheese options as an entree but plenty of other choices, mixing beachside dishes with traditional restaurant fare. Good wine list with plenty of national and several international wines. We shared some assorted "tapas-type" dishes before individually selecting a main course- The Dorada was excellent as was the veal, the plaice a bit insipid. Portions are good.
