I fly through Spanish-speaking skies. I feed on words. I am the Vocabat.

I usually post a few times a week. Leave a comment or email me at vocabat at gmail dot com to suggest topic ideas.

  1. The name “vocabat” conjures up a funny image in my mind. Imagine a bat wearing a cape covered with items of vocabulary


  2. Hola!! me alegra mucho que te agrade Colombia y más Medellín. ¿Cuándo vuelves? sería bueno practicarlos dos idiomas. Avísanos cuando llegues :)


  3. Hi! I really enjoy your blogs.
    I’ve been living in Spain for about 4 years now and I also love the Spanish language and culture. Look forward to your next blogs!


  4. Hola :-)

    Me gusta tu blog :-) que interesante

    Me parece que deberíamos hablar; se me hace que podríamos volvernos amigos con un destino común. Que tal? ;-)


  5. Hola! I’m an English student working for a year as a language assistant at a school in Bogotá. Incredible how similar your experiences learning all those distinctly Colombian words and phrases are to my own. Please keep writing, I found this blog about an hour ago and haven’t left since!


  6. I am in love with your posts. I hope we can spend some time together again soon. There is always a room and a meal waiting for you here.
    Much Love


  7. Wow! I LOVE your blog. I’ve always loved Spanish and am now taking a Spanish class at my local community college. I learned Spanish in high school from 1962 to 1966 and I still remember a lot. I can’t wait to learn more from you! Thanks :)


  8. Hi Dear Vocabat

  9. I really enjoy your blog. Keep the vocabat insights coming, por favor! This gringo is nowhere near fluent, and Colombia beckons.


  10. OMG. Were we separated at birth? Searching through the internet for information on “pantofles” for a copy editing assignment, I somehow came up this site. I, too, have lived in South America (Chile for 12 years). I, too, am sort of a word nerd. I love to figure out origins and influences. When I have more time, I’ll be back.
    Did you notice the difference in the emotions of the World Cup commentators between English-speaking and Spanish-speaking. What a hoot.


  11. Hi. Thanks for the great blog. It’s very interesting for me as I am learning Spanish in Colombia. I wondered if there is a URL where I can see say a years worth of posts on one page so that I can print them off all at once? I prefer to read things on paper where I can highlight and scribble notes etc!


  12. Big Like! Enjoy your Spanish ride! Keep working on this blog and doing what you love! Los idiomas son mi passion tambien! :)


  13. Hey! Why did you stop posting things? I really adored reading you! :)


  14. Extraño tus posts… ¿Por qué dejaste de escribirlos? =(


    • Hola menjiu, muchas gracias por recordarme. No sé bien, simplemente pasó el tiempo y se menguó un poco mi pasión por el idioma. O más bien no sabía cómo canalizarla, porque la verdad siempre tuve mil y una ideas. Eso sí, extraño escribir y a todos los lectores tan queridos que me leían. Saber que sigues ahí me da ánimos para volver…hmm.
