Let’s talk about how to say annoying in Spanish. A few days ago, I was on an online forum for English speakers learning Spanish and Spanish speakers learning English, and an English speaker asked an interesting vocabulary question.
How To Say Annoying In Spanish
For example, my mother-in-law is very annoying. In many parts of the Spanish- speaking world, you will hear the word “fastidioso” used for the word “annoying” or “bothersome.”
Es muy fastidioso trabajar cada fin de semana. (It is very bothersome to work every weekend.)
I did say that in many parts of the Spanish-speaking world, the word “fastidioso” is used to say “annoying” or “bothersome.” But in Colombia, there’s another way how to say annoying in Spanish. And that word is “cansón.”
I would be slightly exaggerating if I said I hear the word “cansón” used everyday in Colombia. But the word “cansón” is definitely used in Colombia to describe people a lot more frequently than we, English speakers, use the words annoying and bothersome to describe people.
Hay una muchacha muy cansona en mi clase.
(There’s a very annoying girl in my class.)
