Advanced Intermediate Free Spanish Podcast 10 – Spanish Villages

Have you ever visited a small, sleepy Spanish village? Despite the fact that Spain is fast becoming a modern country, it is still possible to find many small villages throughout the whole of Spain that are pretty much what you might expect from the typical “aldea española”.

In this free Spanish podcast we discuss the typical delights that can often be found in a traditional Spanish village. Certainly, if you want to find people to talk to in Spanish, this is the place to go particularly if you go in the late evening when everyone is outside, sitting in their doorways enjoying the cool of the night.

In this episode Cynthia and Gordon discuss the village close to the family’s “chalet” in the mountains of Guadalajara in Spain. Just like every Spanish village, it has two typical things. Can you guess what they might be? Listen in as we talk about what they are as well as many of the other interesting features of life in a Spanish village.

Each free Spanish podcast is transcribed and translated and all this additional information and guidance can be found in the comprehensive help-sheets that have been developed specifically with our students in mind. We hope you enjoy them!

Advanced Intermediate Spanish Podcast 9 – Driving in Spain

In this free Spanish lesson online, we have a chat about driving in Spain.

Every country has its style of driving, and none more so than Spain. Certainly in the area around the capital, Madrid, drivers tend to be quite aggressive, although not all of them.

Peeping the horn is a great past-time for them especially if you are waiting at a set of traffic lights that have just turned green and you haven’t managed to get the car into gear fast enough.

In this podcast Cynthia and Gordon share differing opinions on what it’s like to drive in Spain. No es un “domestic” pero casi. jeje. Just like all couples, they don’t always share identical opinions on things.

Maybe you’ve already had experience already of driving through Spain. What was your impression of when the Spanish get behind the wheel? As you listen to our two differing opinions why not see which one you agree with or if you think neither of us have it right.

This free Spanish lesson uses a lot of vocabulary that might be new to you and so, all the additional information and guidance can be found in the comprehensive Spanish help-sheets that have been designed to allow you to take the maximum benefit from these bite-size podcasts. Esperamos que os gusten.
