    E16 Cultural Journey to Argentina: El Rock Nacional

    E16 Cultural Journey to Argentina: El Rock Nacional

    In this episode, I'm going to have a chat in Castellano Rioplatense with Marcelo Lamela. He's going to tell us about the history of Argentine national rock, a unique rock genre in Latin America. Rock in Argentina is much more than music, it is a kind of social struggle and a way of expressing ourselves in tougher political times. Some geniuses of this genre were Charly García, Spinetta and Gustavo Cerati. Learn about this topic and all the vocabulary we use by listening to the interview.

    -------------

    Marcelo Lamela is a rock and roll lover who over time has become an expert on the subject. He is the founder and director of Rock is Here. He wrote three books about rock, and one of them is about rock and roll in Buenos Aires.

    You can find him on Instagram as @rockishere_oficial or go to his page www.rockishere.com

    E14 From Hunter to Nature Protectionist in Argentina

    E14 From Hunter to Nature Protectionist in Argentina

    Jaime is a wildlife ranger in the province of Entre Ríos. While visiting his reserve and going on a photographic safari, I had a very interesting chat with him, all in Rioplatense Spanish. He told me his story when he was a kid and had to hunt to eat and how he gradually realized the importance of conserving the flora and fauna. He also told me a lot of things about the animals of the region and, for example, what to do if you get bitten by a yarará snake. Can you imagine the answer?

Short episodes in Argentine Spanish

Looking for a way to practice Argentine Castellian Spanish and found this series. Perfect for intermediate learners with short episodes only in the target language with clear but natural pronunciation about local topics.

Excellent Resource!

I have lived in Argentina for a year and a half now and have found it difficult to find learning resources for Argentine specific Spanish. For those who haven’t experienced it, there really is a difference in dialect and vocabulary. This podcast is exactly what I needed. It has become my favorite podcast!

R A Mess ,

Just what I was looking for!

I have always wanted to learn Argentine Spanish but I never found any resources and specifically any podcasts. I was so excited to find this yesterday! I can’t wait for more lessons. Keep up the good work!
