My neighbor in Mexico had an unfortunate logo on his car.


It was harmless in the USA. South of the border, it had a completely different meaning.



By the way, if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed when people speak Spanish quickly check this out:


How to understand fast Spanish


Available until Sep 6.



The logo was ASCO. 


In Spanish it means disgusting.


He was a little annoying at times, but I wouldn’t call him disgusting


As you enjoy life in the Spanish speaking world, you’ll hear this expression often…


¡Qué asco!


It's a bit like the expression in English “gross” or “it’s gross”.


No me gusta el higado. ¡Qué asco! (I don't like the liver. How disgusting!)


Most of the food you’ll eat in the Spanish speaking world will more likely have you say…


¡Qué rico! (How delicious!)


rather than


¡Qué asco! (How disgusting!)


Either way it's good to know everyday Spanish expressions.  


Soon, you too will be speaking more clearly and understand more of what your amigos say to you.


Qué rico and qué asco are two of 16 expressions that will soon be flowing freely from your mouth.


They are part of our Everyday Expressions series on “Food Glorious Food.”
