Chile Languages

Spanish is the official language and English is widely understood in large cities. Various indigenous languages are spoken in Chile like Mapudungun (in Araucanía and Bíobío regions), Quechua (in Atacama and Tarapacá regions) and Rapa Nui (in Easter Island).

Slang for informal situations presents a wide variety of words and expressions for an almost unending list of situations, thoughts and feelings, which grows and refreshes continuously. There is a very good glossary of "Chilenismos" or chilean slang in the Cachando Chile blog, in English.
