Coffee Break Spanish Season 4 coming soon
To date we’ve published two 40-lesson seasons of Coffee Break Spanish, and one 40-lesson season of Show Time Spanish. Here at Radio Lingua we tend to think of Show Time Spanish as “Coffee Break Spanish Season 3”, so we’re delighted to announce that Coffee Break Spanish Season 4 will be launching early in 2014. It’s not quite ready for publication yet as we’re still recording various elements of the show.
Like Coffee Break French Season 4, the new season of Coffee Break Spanish will be based around a story – a sort of “radio play”, similar to the Verano Español element of Show Time Spanish. However, this story is much more developed and through the weekly episodes you’ll get to know a range of characters, listen to different Spanish accents, and build your confidence and range of expression in the language.
We’ll be providing more information about Coffee Break Spanish Season 4 in the coming months, so stay tuned!
Introducing the Coffee Break Spanish Newsstand Magazine
“That sounds familiar”, we hear you say! We launched the Coffee Break Spanish Magazine audio and video podcast last September, and we’ve had lots of feedback about this show. It seems that what learners are looking for is a “real” magazine, full of articles about the Spanish-speaking world. There is lots of content out there for English speakers about travel in Spain and Latin America, and there are thousands of blogs and news articles for native speakers of Spanish. However, what seems to be missing is a collection of articles about the places, the people and the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world written specifically for learners. This is what we’ve decided to put together in the form of a magazine app.
We’ll be launching the first issue of our magazine in a few weeks, and we’re sure that the Coffee Break Spanish community will really enjoy learning with this new resource. The magazine will feature graded articles in Spanish, with something for everyone in each edition, from beginners through to advanced learners. These articles will be combined with beautiful photography, contributions from the community and some articles in English about Spanish language and culture. Since it’s a digital magazine we’ll also be able to include audio and video, along with links and interactive elements. The magazine will launch first in Newsstand for iPad, and we’ll add versions for other devices soon after.
As soon as the first edition is ready we’ll let you know!
