๐Ÿค” Question about a champion: Does Messi speak English?

Sub city. Unofficially, Miami is often presented as the Hispanic capital of the United States. Over the years, Cuban immigrants have changed the face of the “Magic City.”

From a purely linguistic and socio-cultural perspective, Lionel Messi doesn't really belong at Inter Miami. But when he's away from his Florida bases (away from tournaments and business activities), can the Argentine handle the English? What is his true position in Shakespeare's language? The answer in one word: basic.

In August 2021, his friend (and reporter) Guillem Baleque asked him the question during a discussion at the Parc des Princes (the day it was given to the press). Messi replied: โ€œI've been learning English for a year and a half… I understand the language but I can't really speak it. ยป

Ahead of the Juventus-Barcelona match in October 2020 (LoC), La Pulca could be heard conversing in English with Dutch referee Danny Makeley during the toss. The match took place behind closed doors (due to the corona virus). As a result, the cameras were able to capture the exchange with sound.

We are a Others A video that proves Messi can communicate in English (at least). It was in January 2023, during an exchange with the London magician Julius Dean. Piece.

No, Messi doesn't speak English. Don't expect sophisticated chat from Argentines in this language. But luckily, he has some ideas. These ideas, combined with his mastery of Spanish (the second most spoken language in America), make his American adventure even more fluid.

It remains to be seen whether his Argentinian accent, which he never lost despite an early departure for Barcelona at 13, will be fully understood by Floridians. One thing is for sure, we will be following these linguistic adventures very closely.
