Episode 12 – Show Time Spanish

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”.

  1. I really like Showtime Spanish! The listening practice provided during Act One is greatly needed, and I’ve found that it pushes me to learn more and to increase my vocabulary. The grammatical breakdown in Act Two helps me to understand the language as a whole. And the Interval Act provides me with some extra bonuses, with the tongue twisters, jokes, movie reviews (which provide even more listening practice), and the authentic expressions. I can’t decide which I like best. Great job to everyone on the team! Keep up the good work!
