Advanced Free Spanish Podcast 12 – Medicina Alternativa

This free Spanish podcast has everything to do with alternative medicine.

In today’s modern world, medicine has moved forward at a tremendous speed and surgeons have the skills to perform breathtaking and lifesaving operations never before seen. Y eso nos encanta.

However, alternative medicine, and the benefits of using this kind of treatment, has been making a comeback, although it is not without its critics.

Once again, Cynthia and I have very strong views on this subject and perhaps we could be classed as being outside of mainstream thought. But that’s what life is all about. Differing opinions.

¿Qué opinas tú? Is modern medicine something you would use or have used? If the need arose, would you put your trust in it?

Listen in as we share our very personal opinions on alternative medicine and its usefulness. If you were sitting with us, what would you say? What could you add to the conversation? Tell us in the comments section.

In our comprehensive help-sheets, we have translated and transcribed this advanced free Spanish podcast and we’ve included lots more helpful bits of information. We even have some “try before you buy” helpsheets so you can be sure they are good value for the money.

Beginners Spanish Podcast 11 – Saber & Conocer

Two different verbs to say the same word. How confusing!

Don’t worry, in this beginner Spanish lesson we explain how these two similar yet very different verbs work. Listen in and learn how knowing things, people and places are dealt with in the Spanish language.

Here we help you understand which one of these verbs you would use when you know “someone” or when you know “stuff”!

For more on the difference between saber and conocer, have a look at our Spanish help-sheets.

Advanced Intermediate Spanish Podcast 12 – The Uses of Se

In this free Spanish lesson online, we look at “se”.

Well, what can we say about “se”? If you’ve spent any time studying the Spanish language you will have noticed that it quite literally pops up all over in the Spanish language.

It has been said that SE is a little overused and, for students, it can cause a great deal of confusion looking at it in a sentence and trying to decide if it’s being used as a reflexive pronoun, an indirect object pronoun or simply one of the many other little jobs it has been given.

In this podcast we run through all the uses of this pronoun and offer you some practical examples of how you can successfully use it in conversation.

Of course, in ten minutes it isn’t so easy to go into the depth that this subject demands and so we have worked hard to include all the additional information and guidance in the comprehensive Spanish worksheets that can be downloaded from our website. Esperamos que os gusten.

Advanced Free Spanish Audio Lesson 11 – Las Dietas

In this free Spanish audio lesson, we discuss diets and their effectiveness.

Cynthia and I have very strong views on this subject, which, we must state, are purely our own opinions. “Es posible” that you think something completely different from what we say. This, however, is the purpose of this podcast. As an accomplished student of the Spanish language you must be able to state your opinion on matters and argue your case.

As you listen to us talk, try and formulate what you might say if you were talking with us. Would you be “de acuerdo con” or perhaps “en contra de” what we have to say about the fad diets that we are being sold day after day? Is it fair that they promise us the body of a Greek God when in fact we often end up looking more like a Greek urn? Tell us what you think in the comments section.

We have translated and transcribed this free Spanish audio lesson, and every podcast that we make, and make these materials available in our comprehensive Spanish worksheets. We even have some “try before you buy” helpsheets so you can be sure they are an invaluable resource. We’re positive that they will bring your learning to the next level. Give them a try!
