So when you hear gringos saying "no comprende" as "I don't understand", they're mauling the Spanish language and I want to punch them in the face. Just sayin'.


Wait, I thought to understand, in reference to another person's words or actions was entender

I would say "no le entiendo" if I was addressing someone.

It's been a while since I've spoken any of the rudimentary Spanish that I learned in high school and in preparation for a stay in Madrid several years ago.

Maybe I need to attend a night class or something.
