New iPhone App Helps You Learn Lunfardo

Adam Williams, a U.S. expat who is studying Spanish in Argentina, has created a new iPhone app to help people learn Argentine slang, or “lunfardo.”

I haven’t tested the app thoroughly, so I can’t confirm that all the definitions are spot on.

But I’ve used it enough to say that it’s a simple, fun and easy-to-use way to improve your understanding of lunfardo.

In addition to providing basic definitions, the app lets you to test your knowledge of local slang by taking multiple choice quizzes.

You can download it via iTunes for $1.99 by clicking here.

For more information, check out Adam’s Porteño Spanish website here.

To download free iTunes lunfardo videos, produced by The Argentine Post, click here. You can also see some of them on YouTube by clicking here.

He might want to brush up on his English spelling…

“foul” language…not “fowl” language :)

It would be a good idea to get the spelling right first of all – “fowl” means domestic birds. I guess you mean “foul” language.

Looks like all those book shops stocking lunfardo dictionaries on Avenida Corrientes are in for some competition.

I am reading about an explosion in the building of American Airlines….a bomb?
any damage? disgusting. ( URGENTE 24)
Just hope the police will catch those nasty people full of hate .
SERMONS AND LECTURE INFLAMMED OF HUMILLIATION, DEGRADATION, insults…
ANGRY REACTIONS AGAINST ANY ONE THINKING DIFFERENTLY, taking things personally, feeling offended, making yourself right and others wrong through futile mental or verbal complaining, wanting to be seen, or to appear important
How can you call that in lunfardo?
es solo una sensacion.
somos capataces de basurales, cesares de alcantarillas…
el pais es un andrajo politico y social…(de Mr. Lic. Gabunse)
NO CREO QUE EXISTA TRADUCCION PARA ESTO.
estamos en el horno
sale con fritas.
