¿Quién te dijo ..

Hello,

I was trying to hear the words in the subtitles "¿Quién te dijo a ti ...
but it sounds to me like she says something different like "Quién te cual dijo .."

Am I mis-hearing it?

There is no "cual" in there. She says "¿quién te dijo a ti que era mi novio?"

Ni siquiera el traductor Google trae ese 'cual'.

@Pino: Creo que el problema es más bien la dicción de la actriz. Si escuchar otros acentos ya tiene sus complicaciones, aún más cuando se trata de una lengua extranjera. ;(

En la serie TV "Narcos" hay momentos en que los protagonistas hablan en castellano colombiano. Para mi fue un tormento, pues muchas veces tuve que recurrir a los subtítulos en Inglés para poder comprender lo que decían.

Sé de qué hablas. Me ha pasado con acentos mexicanos, caribeños, españoles...

Don't you worry. I don't even understand half Spanish speakers even being a native speaker. They have to make an effort to utter the standard pronunciation of their country/region for me to fully understand them.

Spanish has five vowels, maybe six. Spanish speakers use like 30.

Here, they use like 15 (the young man is trying to use a standard pronunciation)
