In this podcast, we do a bit of listening practice in Spanish as we interview Quique Lorenzo, a full time footballer who currently plays for a team in Madrid. Quique has an interesting accent given that he is from Almería but has lived for many years in Cataluña.
Gordon does the interview with Quique which is a little ironic given that he knows absolutely nothing about football and has limited vocabulary on the subject. Se nota!
One of the interesting sides to the interview is the fact that Quique’s accent isn’t what you will usually hear on the podcasts from LightSpeed Spanish which tend to be centred around the Madrid area. Therefore, this is your challenge, to see if you are still able to capture what is being said.
Quique has since brought his football career to an end because of the crisis in Spain which was causing him to have to move around the country to find work. Perhaps you will be able to note a certain frustration when he talks of the instability of his work.
So listen in and test out your listening skills with a new voice and a different accent!
We have translated and transcribed every podcast so that you can follow along perfectly with everything that is said and in addition, help and guidance on the expressions used as well as other important grammar points can be found in our helpsheets. We even have some free, “try before you buy” helpsheets. ¡Así que, buena suerte con tus estudios!
