    Season 1: Bonus Episode 10: La Nochevieja

    Garbanzo Spanish Podcast Season 1 Bonus Episode: La Nochevieja

    You can’t stop Garbanzo voice artists from having a good time when they get together - and why would you want to?!  To celebrate La Nochevieja, our first collaborative recording, and the end of the first season of The Garbanzo Spanish Podcast, we have given our artists space to go off-roading a little bit and add their own flare to a bonus episode about Las doce uvas de la suerte.

    This episode is a companion to the regularly scheduled Episode 10: Las doce uvas de la suerte featuring the talents of Nelly Andrade Hughes.  For a fun twist, hear some extended party scenes written and compiled by Andrea Giganti Dima with some cultural performances and references that you won’t want to miss!

    This episode uses the same “Las doce uvas de la suerte” script featured in Episode 10 written in comprehensible language suitable for beginners, but is presented without pauses to answer the questions and with the addition of beginner and intermediate language spoken between Nelly and her guests.       

    For a transcript of this episode, visit our blog:  https://blog.garbanzo.io/ .  We would love to hear how you use this episode with your students!

Amazing Resource!

As a middle/high school Spanish teacher, I use comprehensible input and am always looking for resources to compliment my classroom efforts. This is incredible! So well done, as is everything the Comprehensible Classroom (and Garbanzo!) puts out!!
