    #15 - The weather (season finale) 🌧️☀️🌈

    #15 - The weather (season finale) 🌧️☀️🌈

    Latin ELE, Latin American podcast to learn Spanish. This is the season finale... but we'll be back! In this episode you will learn how to talk about the weather in Spanish.

    Question and answers about the weather: (hace + noun) 
    ¿Cómo está el tiempo? A: hace calor (it's hot) / hace frío (it's cold) 

    Adjectives: (estar + adjective)
    caluroso (hot), soleado (sunny), frío (cold), nublado (cloudy). Ex: Hoy está soleado en mi ciudad (today it's sunny in my city)

    Verbs: 
    Llover (to rain) / nevar (to snow). Conjugated always in third singular person, as they are impersonal. Ex: llueve en mi ciudad en invierno (it rains in my city in winter)

    Talking about temperature and degrees: 
    Temperatura alta (high temperature) / temperatura baja (low temperatura). Ex: en verano la temperatura es alta en Santiago. 

    For talking about degrees, in Spanish we talk about Celsius degrees (not Farenheit). 86°F = 30° C. Ex: hay 30 grados en mi ciudad. Temperatures below zero, we add "bajo cero" . Ex: It's minus 5°C = hay cinco grados bajo cero.  

    Seasons (estaciones del año):
    Verano (summer), otoño (fall), invierno (winter), primavera (spring). Ex: En mi ciudad hace calor en verano. 
    ___
    Dialogue:
    Jessica: Uff, es un día caluroso en Concepción. ¿Siempre es así?
    Marco: No siempre. Hace calor porque es verano, pero en invierno hay temperaturas muy bajas. A veces -5 grados bajo cero. ¿Pasa eso en Medellín?
    Jessica: No, en Medellín normalmente hace calor casi todo el año. Es la ciudad de la Eterna Primavera.
    Marco: ¿Entonces siempre está soleado?
    Jessica: No siempre. A veces está nublado y llueve, pero es una lluvia tropical.
    Marco: En Concepción, cuando llueve, hace frío. Por eso me gusta el verano, hace calor y se puede ir a la playa.

Best Spanish lessons I have found!

¡Hola!
Marco does an amazing job at teaching the very basics of language in a way that can be clearly understood! He truly teaches the core concepts of linguistics so you can learn quickly and build off of those essential conjugations and phrases! I took Spanish 1-4 in high school and I have had a few Spanish speaking friends and family members, so I have always been able to understand the language better than I can actually speak it! Marco has helped me remember and practice those essential core concepts so that I can respond and speak with other native Spanish speakers!
If you are a beginner, intermediate, or almost fluent but not native speaking, this podcast is number one for learning, practicing, and honing your Spanish speaking skills!
I have recently started pursuing a career in criminal psychology and I have realized how useful and IMPORTANT bi-lingual and multi-lingual skills are in the world. ¡ especialmente en américa!
He also has these lessons on Spotify for free!
Highly recommended!

¡Graciás, Marco!

Great podcast

I am using an app to learn Spanish but it lacks the ability to have me verbally practice. This podcast is perfect for allowing me to verbally practice. The presenter is awesome. His lessons are great. Thank you!!!

Great for workouts

I am getting a lot out of this podcast. The narrator is easy to listen to and communicates well.
