This free Spanish lesson — all of our Spanish lessons are free, by the by — was great fun to make. “¡Fue super divertido!” In it we talk about the funny moments that have happened to us over the past few years. Cynthia gets very carried away with the whole story telling experience and watch out for the way I (Gordon) have to keep telling to calm down so the listeners can actually hear what’s being said!
Watch out for the fun story of our trip to the woods and Daniel’s (my son) shoes. Then, listen in as Cynthia tells the very “embarazosa” story of what happened to poor Daniel once again!
Although this podcast will be very entertaining to listen to, the other side of it is that with each “historia”, you are learning the skill of telling a tale in Spanish. The real test of your level is whether you can tell a story and get a reaction (rather than watching your audience fall asleep before your eyes! Jeje).
Personally, I (Gordon) had to endure many years of that as I struggled to recount in Spanish the things that had happened to me. Now, it’s a little easier, but I could never say it was a piece of cake. It takes lots of practice! Thinking about it, however, I fall asleep sometimes when an English person tells me a story in their own language!
