    It's Bienvenido here in Miami

    Bien = Well
    Venido = Past-perfect of Venir (to come)

    Bienvenidos could be a slangish use of the plural for bienvenido... like to welcome multiple individuals at once.

    This is my gringo interpretation of the language, however. I'm sure xarst could fill us in further.

    I don't know, if it ends in a "s" it's plural, and you said bienveniEdos...

    EDIT- What transio says is just right

    I understand that, unfortunately miami and spain are gonna have the same kind of spanish

    I know Mexican/Central Americans slaughter the language anyway, I never made sense of it either, but even in my text books it was Bienvenidos

    There in california it seems that a lot of people talk spanglish, and it's like a whole new language!
