You’ve been speaking-to-learn with the videos.
Did you know Spanish has a different word for playing an instrument as opposed to playing a sport?
In English we talk about playing sports and games and we also talk about playing music.
Spanish has a different verb for each one. To play a game or a sport the verb is jugar, for example:
Life wouldn’t be the same. It doesn’t matter where you go in the world—music is something that unites us all.
It’s a great thing to talk about with your Spanish-speaking amigos too.
I’ve created a series of free video lessons that make it easy for you to speak about music in flowing sentences.
I’ve had lots of great comments on the blog about these videos. My favorite was from Marianne
I want so much to speak fluently…but I think fear of mistakes holds me back…it becomes frustrating and makes me feel stupid. But this video was great! The pace was good…no fear! I learned!!
