Meanings of phrases in Spanish be expressed through intonation, like affection, anger, or politeness; but one must always be cautious because the tone used can often alter the meanings of the same words.

Both words and sentences in the Spanish language can sometimes be very complex and long – so complex in fact that non-native speakers of this language will probably have great difficulty in mastering the wide range of tenses. The verb ‘to be’ is a Spanish translation of both ‘ser’ and ‘estar’ and non-native speakers have a difficult task in understanding the difference between these two. Meanings of phrases in Spanish be expressed through intonation, like affection, anger, or politeness; but one must always be cautious because the tone used can often alter the meanings of the same words. Native speakers of this language like to use augmentative and diminutives, and these suffixes alter a lot depending on the region.

The Spanish Language Specific to Colombia

The Spanish language of Colombia is said to be one of the most beautiful forms of spoken Spanish in South America, with its clear pronunciation and almost musical intonation. The many different dialects of Spanish spoken throughout the country have been greatly influenced by the diverse ethnic background of so many of the Colombian people. Generally, the form of Spanish spoken in Colombia can be defined as a grouping of the various varieties of the many languages spoken. This term has more geographical relevance than linguistic relevance because the dialects spoken throughout the various regions of Colombia are so diverse.

Located in Colombia’s capital of Bogotá is the Caro y Cuervo Institute, which is Colombia’s main institution for promoting the study of both the language and literature of Colombia and Spanish America. Bogotá is a conservative but educated variety of Spanish, which holds high prestige amongst Spanish speakers throughout the Americas.
