The Spanish spoken in Latin America is quite different from mainland Spanish in terms of sentence construction, vocabulary and pronunciation. Very characteristic of South American Spanish is the frequent use of diminutives.

The Venezuelans speak very quickly and unclearly and are therefore difficult for a European to understand. Moreover, Venezuelan is laced with corruptions from Native American and African languages.

Furthermore, approximately 25 Indian languages are spoken in Venezuela. English is also available in many tourist places.
