An Expressive Language

The first thing you should learn about Spanish is that it is a very expressive language. You don't only use words to communicate with people but you use expressions in your face, hands and body. Some countries are more expressive than others, such is the case of Argentina, having a big population with a Italian background makes their expressions even stronger than other Latin-American countries.

If you're in a situation and you don't know how to say something, don't be afraid to use your hands to point to something or use other kinds of expression to show what you want to say. Spanish and Castellano are very similar languages, we are going to learn which are the most common differences and how to apply these differences in daily conversations.

1) What's your name? /Cuál es tu nombre?
2) How old are you?/ Cuántos anos tienes? (Espanol) Cuántos anos tenés? (Castellano)
3) What do you do?/A que te dedicas? (Espanol) A que te dedicás? (Castellano)
4) Where are you from?/De donder eres? (Espanol) De donde sos? (Castellano)

In these examples you can see that some letters has a little sign over them. This is called "Tilde or acento" And means that you have to give emphasis to that syllable.

Now, lets study the pronounces and see the differences:

English

I am
You are
He is
She is
It is
You all are
They are
Spanish

Yo soy
Tu eres
El es
Ella es
Esto es
Vosotros sois*
Ellos son
Castellano

Yo soy
Vos sos
El es
Ella es
Esto es
Ustedes son
Ellos son

*Vosotros sois only is applied in Spain.

Note: Even if in some Latin-American countries the people speak Castellano, in the schools they teach the conjugations in Spanish but the people don't talk like that.

The big difference between Spanish and Castellano is that in Spanish we say "Tú" (You) but in Castellano we say "Vos" (You). Both of them has the same meaning but since they are different, the conjugation of verbs change too.

Example: Tú eres un maestro (Espanol) / Tú tienes 25 anos (Espanol)
Vos sos un maestro (Castellano) / Vos tenés 25 anos (Castellano)

If this is the first time you heard about Castellano then you probably think it is quite different to Spanish. It seems so but it's not. In a period of time you'll have to learn Spanish, you'll see how easy you can learn Castellano too. You'll talk two different languages and you will be able to communicate with anybody in any Spanish-speaking country.
