    Hehehe. Thanks everyone! My old Spanish teacher was awful and didn't really go over Spanish conjugation much. I'm also trying to translate "I'll fucking show them" (A quote from a book).

    "Yo les jodido enseñarse" was my guess.

    (I believe "
    enseñar" would be proper in this context though I'm not exactly sure if it is in the right tense. gah! I need to teach myself Spanish again, ha ha).

    For anyone who's wondering, I'd like the more Mexican slang. I'm not really familiar with the other countries and people.

    I'll fucking show them!
    either
    Yo les voy a enseñar
    or
    Ellos van a aprender
    and the four letter word first. Of course, if you like Mexican slang
    La puta madre que les voy a enseñar!
    or
    La puta madre que van a aprender!!!

    Thanks!

    I was wondering, if it's possible, if I could use the word "chingar" and still mean the same thing. Chingaos, chingado, etc.

    Thanks again!

    you could use the word but it depends on the position of the sentence and how you use it.
    "chingaos, les voy a enseñar" could do

    The correct verb tense and conjugation is "Les Voy a Enseñar" or even "les voy a demostrar".

    and then you can add any of the options you were given for the word I omitted (jeje)
