You no longer need to laboriously switch back and forth between languages every time you want to throw a “pinche” into your english text, either.


Yesterday at the Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC, some techy conference) keynote, Apple revealed just how much better Siri is going to be with the new iOS 10 update. In addition to the multilingual typing you can send secret messages with invisible ink, and sketch on photos and videos. So you’ll be able to add hearts, kisses or draw all over your friend’s face.


We’ll certainly like her more when we say “Siri, qué onda with the weather?” and she actually responds. The addition is called ‘multilingual’ typing and allows you to write in Spanglish, Frenglish, Germainglish and beyond. Oh, the possibilities!

7 Spanglish Phrases Every Latino Has In Their Vocabulary

The best part about Latinx culture is that we often take phrases everyone knows and give them our own spin with Spanglish phrases. At first glance you might not realize that both of these phrases are exactly the same but, in reality they totally are! It’s like left Twix and right Twix…both Twix, but totally different!

Once you read through all of these, you’ll jajaja the rest of the day.

1. Troca/Truck

Spanglish phrases
GIPHY

When it’s time to pile in all of your tías and little cousins, you tell them to hop in the troca. Every Latino knows that this means truck.

2. Yarda/Yard

Yarda and yard are so interchangeable it’s honestly hard to remember which came first. We’ve been hearing our abuelitas and mamis call it the yarda our entire life.

3.  Carpeta/carpet

GIPHY

We all know the dread we feel when our mom yells at us to vacuum the carpeta on Saturday morning when we’d rather be just chilling.

4. Te hablo pa´tras/I’ll call you back

GIPHY

Known as the phrase you say the most to your mami when she calls you after work. Also, the phrase you say to your tías, abuelita and your little sister who constantly blows up your phone. You’re just busy living your life!

5. Parqueadero/parking lot

GIPHY

Growing up using “parqueadero” is a rite of Latino passage.

6. Un breakecito/a break (as in give me a break)

This is a phrase often used when watching telenovelas with your familia. The doctor had an evil twin this whole time? Un breakecito.

7. Lonche/lunch

GIPHY

Latinos know how important eating is, and lonche is one of the best parts of anyone’s day.

All of these Spanglish phrases are almost identical to the English versions of them but the differences are what make them so fun. Like how left Twix and right Twix are also different, but both are that same sweet treat we all love.

This Mexican Pop Singer Is Breathing New Life Into This Mariah Carey Classic

Finally! Everyone’s favorite Christmas classic just went Spanglish.

We all love “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” In fact, you probably listened to it at least once in the last 24 hours. It’s catchy, so good to dance to and festive af. Now, you can finally jam to your favorite holiday classic with everyone in your family thanks to Victoria “La Mala” Ortiz. The Mexican pop singer belted Mariah Carey’s most famous song switching between English and Spanish while still keeping the spirit of the song intact. The stripped down, acoustic take on the pop song gives it a totally new feel without making it seem like you are listening to a different song entirely. Enjoy!
