18 Beautiful Words The English Language Really Needs To Steal

As it relates to my love for language, I wanted to share this list of uniquely cultural words in various languages. Here are a few others that are unique to Southern Spain (Andalucia):

¡Qué guay! / Súper guay  – Cool

 ¡Venga! /  ¡Anda! – “C’mon” (disbelief) / No way

Vale Okay

Echar de menos – to miss someone

 ¡Ojalá – I hope!

Tía – chick
