"No Matter What Your Language (No Importa Su Idioma)" is a Sesame Street song that first appeared on the show in Season 3. In the song, a Spanish speaker teaches an English speaker that anyone can learn a new language, if they take the time to learn.

The song has been sung by a number of pairs, including Rafael and Bob (EKA: Episode 0348) and Luis and Susan (EKA: Episode 0767).

The album version, first heard in 1974 on Big Bird Sings! and ¡Sesame Mucho!, features Luis and Big Bird.

Season 22 debuted a version at Birdland, with Duck Ellington, the Sesame Street All-Animal Jazz Ensemble, and Wynton Marsalis (First: Episode 2874). Luis and Maria's cousins sing the song to Telly in Episode 3066 to teach him Spanish. Carlo also sang the song with Diva la Diva in Episode 3510. Rosita also performed the song in a segment from the late 1990s with the Anything Muppets (First: Episode 3621).
