Not funny at all. Most of the ones I have seen are not really funny at all. You might have put up a funny one that I did like,but not sure if it was this site. It was a Mexican chola.

“But don’t take my word for it. Listen to some native Mexican speakers, like Al Pacino in Scarface, and try it out for yourself. Maing.”

Stereotypical, racist, and extremely in bad taste.

I’m not sure it’s racist, but it is stereotypical and just not very good. Not to mention the accent of Mexicans would also probably vary depending on time here, socioeconomic level, etc.

Here’s how to talk like a Mexican.

I believe that the “you know” is more Italian.. than Mexican.. or what she is trying to portray Mexican-American. This shit is just satire, c’mon just by her implying to work on a mexican accent, that kinds of gives the clue that it is all bs. and if it is not well, he he he… you know. 🙁

Mexicans who speak English as a second language have a wide variety of accents depending on proficiency. Just among pochos, there are probably 5 or 6 regional accents right now.

1) Nuyorican/Dominican York-influenced Northeastern accent. Like John Leguizamo or J-Lo, but más cantadito and with the occasional “órale, wey”.

2) West Coast pocho accent. Usually what actors try to do with their “Mexican” accent. Edward James Olmos, Cheech Marin, George Lopez. (Within this varying degrees of cholotude).

3) Texican accent. Such a mix of Mexican cantadito and Southern drawl can also be heard in NM and rural California.

4) Chicagolandia

5) “Hispanic” who tries to hide the enormous nopal on his/her forehead by acting white but is betrayed every time he/she says “picsa” or “Sant’Ana”.

6) Fully assimilated pochos who talk just like white and/or black people from their area.

Among all of these dialects individual speakers may try more or less to talk like they’re black, just like young whites.
