Tuesday 23rd October 2018 – Day 23 of Blogtober

Hola a todos,

We’re at martes again!? It’s that time again for your weekly dose of Español, courtesy of Diary of a Spanglish Girl! This week, we’re preparing for movie season by talking movies!

Is anybody else looking forward to chillier nights sitting on the sofa eating so many snacks binging on the same movies that you’ve watched for years?

¡Vamos al cine!

One of the best ways to learn Spanish is to stock up on those movies and start watching them in Spanish.

A few weeks ago, my mum and I went to the cinema at C.C La Marina to watch Mamma Mia in Spanish. Let me tell you, it’s intense.

You don’t need to be fluent in Spanish to understand what’s going on. You’ll pick it up from the music and actions. I actually found it more emotional in another language. You’re concentrating so hard and you’re focusing on the actors’ emotions. It feels real.

So basically, get the tissues ready. Your emotions and Spanish language skills are going to go on a wild ride.
