Life is a party
¿Nivel de inglés? (What’s your English fluency level?)
Traduzca “Fiesta.” (Translate “Fiesta”)
Úselo en una frase. (Use it in a complete sentence.)
Ayer me party la cara en la bicicleta. (Yesterday, I split my face on a bicycle)
Contratado! (You’re hired!)
Yes, the always popular “nivel de inglés” jokes don’t always make sense in English. But they can be a hilarious way to play on Spanglish verb tenses and double entendres to help learn both languages. In this case, the English word “party” is being used as a phonetic spelling of “partí,” the first-person preterit conjugation of “partir” or “to split.” So, because the sentence “Ayer me partí la cara en la bicicleta” technically makes sense in Spanish, the jokester nabs the English-language job. Get it?
These are the Spanish phrases everyone should know.
