Upper Intermediate Series S2 #17 - We Hope That Studying Spanish Here Will Convince You to Stay!

Throwback Thursday
Learn Spanish with SpanishPod101.com! You have been studying Spanish for a few months now at the University in Spain. You have been living with a roommate from your school...but lately, it seems as if he has been...well, spending more time partying in Spain than studying. You gently explain to your roommate in Spanish, "It's time for me to get my own apartment in Spain or I doubt I'll ever get any studying done!" As you chat about your possibilities, the doorbell rings...it's a realtor and she is ready to show you a few things around town. Excusing yourself, your roommate calls after you in Spain, "I hope that you find something that makes you happy." That was nice. However, in the first apartment, you let the realtor know right away, "I doubt all my things would fit into this tiny apartment!!" Okay...on to the next one. In the second apartment, you let her know immediately (screaming over the thumping stereo blasting through the walls next door) in Spanish, "I REALLY doubt this is a realistic study atmosphere for me!" Okay...onward. In the last apartment, you are amazed! You tell her in Spanish, "This has the perfect Spanish charm! The lighting is perfect, the patio is beautiful and serene, and it is so quiet! I am sure that I will never find something more perfect!" She informs you that she is showing another couple this same apartment in thirty minutes...a marketing ploy? Maybe, but is it possible that you will find another more perfect place?! Learning Spanish with SpanishPod101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Spanish! This Spanish Intermediate lesson will teach you how to form Spanish phrases and sentences using the Spanish present subjunctive.
