  • 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂... n that's just for all the comments here on spanish grammar... ps: 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 that one's for the actual vid...
  • Hilarious and good.
  • Child of argentinians in the U.S. This was me as a child. Holy shit 😂😂😂😂😂😂👌👍
  • I know this is a bit, but I can totally relate. I speak six languages - 3 fluently. Although my pronunciation is near flawless, that does not mean my understanding is. I tend to confuse native speakers of my B and C languages if I have to ask them to slow down. The fact that I work in an import store probably doesn't help. People come in expecting that I'm a foreigner.
  • I love you.. Your smile... GOD.. ITZ AMAZING
  • Hahaha had the exact same problem in Germany, so many awkward conversations at the supermarket
  • I have to come back to this clip once in a while to have a laugh. It never gets old.
  • This is me with Chinese....😂😂😂....I always have it til I don’
  • Been a fan since 2013
  • * British accent* No I don't speak any English whatsoever. No none at all 😂😂😂😂
  • My dad was in Okinawa & he asked a bus driver something & the driver said “I don’t speak English” in perfect English.
  • My best channel by far
  • This was me all during Spanish class. 😂
  • Actually, Trevor gives very good language learning advice: learn the essential phrases first and learn it well. in order to be able to communicate.
  • This is too true!
  • Trevor’s between the scenes make super happy😍
  • 😂😂😂
  • His accent is actually pretty good, I love his accents and hearing him talk in other languages
  • How many languages does he know ?😂
  • super relatable!!!
  • Aw so cute ! Because it’s not the same. “Mi no habla español” means “me no speak English” as opposed to I don’t speak English which is the right way of saying it. So if you say “me no hablo español” yup! It’s clear ! Lol 😂 still cute tho
  • lol
  • Haha I love the ending. It's like when I was in Rome and a South Korean couple asked me if I was Korean in their language, and I responded "No" in Korean and walked off. After a moment of disappointment, a light bulb went off and the woman chased after me LOL. I know like seven words in Korean too haha (thanks to kdramas). Our entire exchange was almost in Korean; I couldn't really respond in sentences but understood her enough, so I managed to give them directions successfully with the help of a map and pointing LOL.
  • Stop Trevor, you don’t want a cop or a xenophobe hearing your perfect Spanish, you might be confused with an illegal immigrant 🙇🏽‍♀️
  • omg soooo true i go through that hahaha
  • He does speak Spanish really well
  • Man his storytelling is amazing
  • In fact you are wrong "Me no habla español" is wrong, the right way should be "no *hablo* español". So don't worry they'll know you really don't speak spanish
  • Pleeeease!!! when are we going to enjoy your show in Spain???
  • The Kids in the Hall did the funniest sketch very similar to this where Dave Foley doesn't speak english but explains that to Scott Thompson in a perfectly memorized english speech.
  • Oh god! He's British accent is so hot
  • That's me. I run out of Spanish. And it's really weird because the Spanish I do know isn't really conversational so much as it is medical. So Spanish that some every day Spanish speakers may actually not know, so they think I'm way more fluent than I am, when I think I sound like a caveman.
  • Trevor's British accent is just beyond perfect.
  • Omg hilarious
  • Lmfao British accent part killed me.
  • Why so good with accents?, always hilarious
  • Obayyy if you see this i love you you are my only cruch plzz date mee obay khodari❤❤❤
  • 😂😂
  • I've had this exact experience 😂😂😂🇬🇭
  • Trevor has learnt his Spanish from a Colombian 😁
  • That is what happens if you have the talent to speak any language flawless.
  • Hahahhahaha
  • That's True... never thought of that I'm a fluent Spanish speaker.. English being a second language... but I was born here.. so English is my dominant language.. when I go back home.. and don't want to talk to people.. my no hablo español comes out too fluent.. I need to keep that in mind when I get stopped by cops in Jersey.
  • this is so true lmaooo
  • Inglorious Bastards
  • "Not a word of English!"😂🙌🏽
  • 😂😂yes! Finally he’s learning Spanish 💕💕💕
  • this is me with chinese
  • Well not to be a buzzkill Trevor but if you say “mi no habla español” its quite claro que no hablas español con fluencia
  • Trevor!!!!!!!! You are HILARIOUS 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
