Over the last few lessons of Coffee Break Spanish Season 4, we’ve seen Rory, María and Alejandro figure out what to do with the treasure they found at the bottom of the ocean. Their discovery has now made the newspapers in Mallorca, and in lesson 30 we’re taking a look at one of the newspaper articles. This provides a fantastic opportunity for you to look at different styles of writing, as this journalistic text is possibly much more formal than what you may be used to. Mark is on hand to explain everything.
In the preview episode available here on the Radio Lingua site, on iTunes and on Soundcloud, you’ll be able to listen to Carmen and Mark’s introduction, to the core text of this episode, and to the summary in English of what happens in the text.
