Today, I want to teach you how to say shut-up in Spanish? Which, by the way, reminds me of a common mistake that English speakers make when speaking Spanish. The Spanish word “quieto” does not mean the English word “quiet” or “silent.”

The Spanish word “quieto” means still or motionless:

El entrenador le enseña al perro a quedarse quieto cuando se lo ordena.The trainer teaches the dog to remain still when he orders it.

But the Spanish word “callado” means quite or silent.

Ella es una chica muy callada y tímida.She’s a very quiet and shy girl.

How To Say Shut-Up In Spanish

And this is how you tell someone to shut-up in Spanish:

¡Cállate! – shut-up!

¡Cállate la boca! – shut your mouth!

But a more polite way to tell someone to “shut-up” in Spanish is “silencio” (silence)
