Rigoberta Menchú: Premio Nobel de la Paz y vida muy dura

Rigoberta Menchú is an incredible woman and one who has not been spoken about enough. Being of Mayan descent, the Guatemalan lady had an incredibly tough start to life, having seen many of her family members murdered in the horrific genocides committed by the Guatemalan military against the indigenous population of the country. Despite all of the risks, she didn't just give up but continued to fight for the rights of indigenous people around the world but particularly those from her country and women, who she saw to be some of the greatest victims. Due to this work and especially her testimonial biography "I, Rigoberta Menchú", released in 1983, she received the Nobel Peace Prize at the age of just 33, becoming one of the youngest Nobel Laureates. Listen to this episode to learn all about the life and struggles of this amazing woman and to practise your Spanish at the same time. I hope you enjoy!

Rigoberta Menchú: Premio Nobel de la Paz y vida muy dura

Durante la cuarentena, he... (Beginners' Corner 12)

In the last Beginners' Corner episode, I spoke in Spanish using the perfect tense, which is the tense we use to speak about things we "have done" in the past. In this episode, I give you some further practice to help you understand this tense as a Spanish learner and hear it used in a very relevant context: what I've done during the quarantine and what my family has done too. I'll use lots of different verbs, including 'gustar', plus lots of connectives which will be great to incorporate into your vocabulary. Enjoy!

Salvador Dalí: El bigote, la pintura, la excentricidad y todo lo demás

Practise your Spanish while learning all about famous people from Spanish-speaking countries! Salvador Dalí is probably the best-known face of Surrealism and considered by many to be one of the greatest artists of all time. The Spaniard's work stands out among any collection of art for its eccentricity and shock factor, with his art dealing with lots of themes such as death and the subconscious. He is also very well-known for his controversial and shocking public appearances. His signature moustache is recognised by many, especially since the release of the hit Spanish show 'La Casa de Papel'. In this episode, I speak in Spanish all about this great painter, including his childhood, some of the methods he used to produce some of his greatest pieces of art and some information about his more controversial side, including his affection towards Fascism!

Beginners' Corner 11: Hoy, he hecho... (Using the Perfect Tense)

So far in our Beginners' Corner episodes, we've stuck mainly with the Spanish present tense to make things as simple as possible, with only a few phrases in other tenses. In this episode, I want to branch out and start introducing you to other tenses, so it's focused on the perfect tense! This is what we use in Spanish when we're speaking about things we "have done" - it can be used when you've done something but haven't specified exactly when, but it can also be something you've done previously in an incomplete time period e.g. today, this year. I hope this is a helpful introduction and make sure to use the transcript on our blog to help you! Get your free Spanish lesson! https://espeak.online/contact Follow us on social media!

Beginners' Corner 11: Hoy, he hecho... (Using the Perfect Tense)

Pedro Almodóvar - Cineasta excéntrico e influyente

Anyone who is at all familiar with Spanish cinema is likely to have heard Almodóvar's name at least once. This director's films have had a huge influence over the past 40 years, changing the face of Spain's movie scene with films that both shock and draw in the viewer at the same time. Coming into filmmaking after the death of Franco, he became internationally recognised as the face of the 'Movida Madrileña', a movement known for its freedom of expression and shock factor. So many years later, the director continues to make fantastic films, with 'Dolor y Gloria' winning many awards at this year's Goya Awards. In this episode, we look at the life of the man, his main influences and in detail at some of his most notable films.
