Let’s Talk Like Colombianos: Conchudo


Sounds like con-tchoo-dough/dah

May be derived from the word “concha” which means shell.

In its Colombian meaning, it’s used to describe a person who is taking advantage of a situation and not in a good way / A freeloader. Atrevido/aaprovechado/a, descarrao/a might be synonyms.

For example:

Que mujer conchuda” (to say that woman is a freeloader)

You should hear this expression often enough!
