In episode 12 of Show Time Spanish, Mark and Alba get all poetic as they celebrate the 250th anniversary of el poeta nacional de Escocia, Robert Burns. Alba learns some Scots and in return she teaches Mark a poem by Spanish poet Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer. The intermedio includes a review of the film Secretos del Corazón, and José introduces some interesting ways to convey the concept of “to fancy doing something”. Language points covered include how to translate “to realise” and the construction estar a punto de + infinitive, meaning “to be about to do something”.
Please note that these episodes are the same episodes which were released on the Show Time Spanish feed a couple of years ago. We have decided to release them on the Coffee Break Spanish feed to help existing learners who have recently completed Coffee Break Spanish through the reruns of our original series.
As with Coffee Break Spanish, our Show Time Spanish course features a range of additional materials which can be purchased as a “Season Pass”. For Show Time this Season Pass offers a full transcript of all the Spanish used in the text, lesson notes, and bonus listening materials which provide extra practise of the language covered in each lesson. We offer Season Passes at £47.00 GBP (+VAT for EU customers) for Season 1 (lessons 1-20) and Season 2 (lessons 21-40), and for the first time today we’re introducing a Complete Show Time Spanish Season Pass (lessons 1-40) for £84.00 GBP (+VAT for EU customers). Please click on the links for each pass, or if you’re an existing customer, log into your Control Panel and add the pass to your membership.
