An English speaker’s perspective

Discover Spanish With Us


A new friend of mine asked me how old I was (he is 86). When I told him that I was 40 he replied with “¡Eres un pibe todavía!” Or, “You are still just a kid.”

Pibe seems to be quite Argentine in its use according to a forum thread. It can mean a child or young person. It seems to have a friendly connotation like we might use the word lad or lass in English.
