Saludos greetings l.jpg

Saludos/Greetings

  • Chilean friends greet one another with a large hug for males and a kiss on the cheek for women.

  • In business situations, or when meeting for the first time, Chileans greet with a handshake.


Signaling with the lips l.jpg

Signaling with the lips

Instead of pointing with the finger, which is considered rude or poorly educated, Chileans use their lips as a signal. The lips are used to point in the direction of interest. The pointing of the lips can indicate one specific direction, or the moving of the lips can indicate a larger area.


Educaci n l.jpg

Educación

  • Education is EXTREMELY important in Chile. 12 years of schooling is needed for even the lowest paying jobs.

  • Teaching is a highly respected profession in Chile.

  • Since 2008, the government pays for Pre-K for all students.


Three types of school systems l.jpg

Three types of school systems

  • Municipal: money acquired by state and given to the town council which controls the schools, free for all students, accepts all children K-12

  • Subsidized: government and parents pay an equal amount

  • Private or Particular: parents pay total tuition. Teachers earn more since parents pay more.


La comida yum l.jpg

La comida-Yum!

  • Desayuno/Breakfast: Chileans do not eat a large breakfast. It usually consists of coffee or tea and bread with marmalade or manjar, un carmelo delicioso. Bread is purchased daily from a local bakery or vendor.

  • Almuerzo/Lunch:Largest meal of the day. Meals consist of traditional Chilean dishes such as la cazuela (a stew), pastel de choclo, (fresh ground corn and basil casserole with chicken or beef) or a dish with many vegetables due to their abundance and low cost.

    *In rural areas, businesses close at lunch traditionally for the siesta.


Slide9 l.jpg

  • Once: the afternoon meal is called “tomar once”- to take eleven. Served between 4pm and 7pm. Usually bread and tea or coffee similar to breakfast.

    History of the Once : many years ago, men met at this time to enjoy an alcoholic beverage called Aguardiente. In order to conceal the true menu of the get together, a code name was formed. The number of letters in the word Aguardiente is eleven (once). Thus, tea hour has become known as once.

  • Cena/Dinner: is the same as lunch but late at night. If most people in the home work during the day, then once becomes the largest meal. Usually only children and elderly eat dinner.

    social and political life.

  • Religious instruction in public schools is almost exclusively Roman Catholic.

Chilean spanish vs other spanish speaking countries l.jpg

Chilean Spanish vs. other Spanish speaking countries

  • Just how Americans use the term "dude" to refer to someone, Spanish also has its own slang, or "modismo", but varies in every country.

  • For example, "dude" is "guey" in Mexico, "mae" in Costa Rica, "mano" in Guatemala, "tío" in Spain, "tipo" in Colombia, "chabón" in Argentina and "hueón" in Chile

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_language


Slide37 l.jpg

Although the grammar and basic syntax of Spanish stays in tact, there are variations to the language that define Chilean language.

  • Words that end in -ado are pronounced -ao

    The tendency with words that end with –ado is to condense the last syllable to create the sound –ao. This is a result of Chileans speaking very fast.

    For example

  • pasado = pasao

    Por ejemplo: el tiempo ya está pasao

  • lado = lao

    Por ejemplo: se encuentra al otro lao


Slide38 l.jpg

  • Conjugación familiar: “vo” instead of “tú”

    The informal way to address a person in Spanish is “tú.” In this case, verbs are formed as following:

    hablar = tú hablas

    vivir = tú vives

    querer = tú quieres

    However, Chilieans use a modified version of the form “tu”. The from “vo” is created by conjugating the verb in vosotros and dropping the final “s”. The above mentioned examples are converted using “vo”

    hablar = hablái

    vivir = viví

    querer = querí


Slide39 l.jpg

  • Frases se terminan con “po”

    • “Po” is a derivative of “pues” and is used as a connection between phrases in a conversation. “Po” is placed at the end of many phrases. Por ejemplo:

      ¿Cómo estás? Bien po.

      ¿Fuiste al mercado? Sí, po

Spanish alphabet l.jpg

Spanish Alphabet

  • written using the Latin alphabet with the addition of the ñ, ll, ch

  • Contains 29 letters

    a, b, c, ch, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, ll, m, n, ñ, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w,

    x, y, z.

  • Pronunciation can be entirely determined from spelling. A typical Spanish word is stressed on the syllable before the last if it ends with a vowel (not including y) or with a vowel followed by n or s; it is stressed on the last syllable otherwise. Exceptions to this rule are indicated by placing an accent on the stressed vowel.


Grammar l.jpg

Grammar

  • Accents are important!

    papa vs papá

    te (object pronoun) vs té

  • Interrogative and exclamatory clauses are introduced with inverted question ( ¿ ) and exclamation marks ( ¡ ).

  • 50 conjugated forms per verb


Slide43 l.jpg

  • Syntax- SUBJECT, VERB, OBJECT

  • Adjectives come after the noun they modify

    • camisa azul blue shirt

    • perro blanco white dog

    • casa grande big house


Vocabulary comparison l.jpg

Vocabulary Comparison

  • Spanish and Italian share a very similar phonological system. The lexical similarity with Italian is estimated at 82%.

  • The lexical similarity with Portuguese is greater, 89%, but the vagaries of Portuguese pronunciation make it less easily understood by Hispanophones than Italian is.

  • Mutual intelligibility between Spanish and French is 75 % or Romanian is 71%. Comprehension of Spanish by French and English speakers who have not studied the language is as low as 45%

  • The common features of the writing systems of the Romance languages allow for a greater amount of interlingual reading comprehension than oral communication would.

Surnames l.jpg

Surnames

  • As in other Latin American countries, it is customary to give a child the family names of both the father and the mother, although the father's name is the official name. The first name is the paternal surname; the second is the maternal surname. The child may be addressed either way, using both names, or by using only the father's name. 

  • The mother, who retains her maiden name, in addition to her husband's name, is also known officially by both names, although she may occasionally prefer to use only her husband's name. 

  • This habit of using two surnames can be confusing to a foreigner and will occasionally, when filling out official forms, require you to explain that you use only one surname.
