This advanced Spanish audio has to do with the year 2012. Cynthia and I recorded this podcast in the lead up to this much discussed and anticipated year. At that time there were many differing opinions of what was going to occur. Some said it was going to be “el fin del mundo” and others said it would be the start of “algo nuevo”.
Were you aware of the buzz that existed about 2012? What did you think was going to happen? The focus of this audio in grammatical terms is that of possible futures and probable outcomes. That being the case, there is often a need to use the subjunctive when referring to potential futures and so it will be worth “prestando attención” to the way we talk about these up and coming events and listening out for the subjunctive.
If you have no idea of what the subjunctive is or it still confuses you (or terrifies you) then you can check out our special range of videos on the present subjunctive available on Youtube now.
As always, a full transcript and translation of this advanced Spanish audio is available in our comprehensive helpsheets, which help you the learner get the absolute most out of every episode of LightSpeed Spanish.
