    ¿De qué te ríes? | ejercicio de escucha | A2 - B1

    ¿De qué te ríes? | ejercicio de escucha | A2 - B1

    😂 Reírse es un acto instintivo, natural y hasta beneficioso para la salud.

    Y sin embargo, se sabe relativamente poco sobre la risa…

    y hay pocos estudios académicos sobre el asunto. 

    En este vídeo descubrirás cosas curiosas sobre la risa y…

    ✅ aprenderás expresiones españolas para hablar sobre este tema.

     

    Tu turno:

    ¿Cuándo fue la última vez que te tronchaste de risa? ¿Por qué? ¿Qué pasó?

    Espero leer tu anécdota divertida ;)

    Un libro en español para niveles | B1 - B2

    Un libro en español para niveles | B1 - B2

    Hoy quiero hablarte de una novela que me ha encantado. Un libro en español apto para niveles B1. Es de Miguel Delibes. Este libro, concretamente, se llama “El príncipe destronado”.

    Y a primera vista es una novela sencilla y accesible.

    Pero son solo apariencias, porque la novela está cargada de cosas que se intuyen, cosas que se pueden leer entre líneas…

    …porque su protagonista principal es un niño de 3 años.

    Pero, ¡ojo! No es una novela para niños, ni mucho menos, pues refleja la realidad complicada de la dictadura de Franco.

    ¿Andar mirando tu móvil es ilegal? | conversación en español |A2 - B1

    En este capítulo toca otro repaso de:


    las frases condicionales

    los tiempos pasados

    Para este fin, vamos a utilizar una conversación sobre un tema polémico 👉  El uso de móviles y auriculares por los peatones

     

    Y tú, campeón, ¿qué opinas?


    ¿Se debería prohibir el uso de los auriculares a los peatones?
    ¿Se debería multar a los peatones que escriban mensajes mientras cruzan la calle?

    Escucha la conversación con atención. A ver si eres capaz de detectar todas las frases condicionales y las que contienen el subjuntivo.

Bien hecho. De los mejores

Escucho un montón de podcasts. Esto es uno de los mejores. Karo sabe lo que es aprender nuevo idioma así que sabe enseñar. Lo doy cinco estrella porque no hay seis.

Great way to learn Spanish

I put this podcast on when I am doing things around the house, and I feel like I’ve picked up on so much Spanish already! I love the speed, style, and content of the episodes. Keep up the great work!

Una inspiración

Karo, eres una gran inspiración para mí. Yo también soy políglota y profesora de español, y este podcast me ha servido de motivación a la hora de buscarles materiales auténticos a mis alumnos. Yo como fanática de los idiomas habría flipado si algo de este tipo hubiese existido cuando yo primero me puse a aprender el español, que era unos años antes de la existencia del iPhone y los podcast. Como alguien que ha estudiado varios idiomas tanto en el sentido tradicional como por cuenta propia, puedo constatar que los tips compartidos por Karo y Mauro sobre el aprendizaje de lenguas son 100% acertados. Este podcast es muy agradable de escuchar incluso si tienes un nivel muy avanzado del castellano, y hasta me recuerda expresiones españolas que ya no oigo con frecuencia estando en los EEUU. :) Gracias por hacer estos recursos excelentes disponibles al público.
