TikTok user @elchoudero, a Spanish teacher in the United States, has said What do those from that country usually do when they find out that she is from Spain.
“Normally the reactions are very positive“They are always astonished that I come from so far away, and they always say that they want to visit it or tell me what they have visited,” he begins by saying.
“A question I always get asked is: If I am from Madrid or Barcelona and when I tell them I’m from Murcia they say… where? That’s okay, that’s normal,” she continues to explain.
And more: “Another thing I have realized is that when I say I am from Spain they tell me like… Wow! But when you see their faces… it’s like you were telling them that I live in Conchinchina. Well like that. They don’t know where she is.”
“And one of the things that has happened to me recently is that they themselves have detected that I am from Spain and I have asked them: And how did you know that I am from Spain? It’s just that you pronounce shoes and not sapatos,” he explains.
