Lesson Transcript

Hi, everyone! This is Rosa, today I'll be teaching you 15 Reasons to Learn Spanish. So let's start!
1. Es un idioma hermoso. "It's a beautiful language."
Do you think so? Some people say that when they hear Spanish they think, like, people are singing or something.
2. Me encanta viajar. "I love traveling."
There’re a lot of countries you can travel to if you're learning Spanish, it's nice to know Spanish.
3. Simplemente amo aprender idiomas. "I just love learning languages."
Yeah, I also love learning languages, because it's not the same to talk to other people in other language which is not their own.
4. Amo la cultura y la gente que habla ese idioma. "I love the culture and the people who speak the language."
Learning a language shouldn’t be only about memorizing words and grammar, but it’s a huge thing.
5. El idioma me es útil en el trabajo. "The language is useful for my job."
Now more than everything that it's important to learn new languages.
6. Es mi pasatiempo. "It's my hobby."
Nowadays you can watch videos, listen to podcast, watch films, meet with other people, so it can be a really nice experience.
7. Es parte de mis estudios universitarios. "It's part of my university studies."
I don't know in other countries, but in Spain they require you to have like a B-1 English level.
8. Estoy aprendiendo el idioma para impresionar a alguien. "I am learning the language to impress someone."
Well i must confess that, I started to learn French because I have, I got a French friend, and I want to…
9. Mi familia viene de un lugar donde se habla el idioma. "My family comes from a place where the language is spoken."
Years ago there was a huge immigration from Spain to other countries.
10. Quiero abrir mis horizontes y volverme más internacional. "I want to open my mind and become more international."
Know how other people think or not, that's always a good thing.
11. Quiero entender mis canciones preferidas, películas y programas de televisión. "I want to understand my favorite songs, movies, and TV shows."
I used to study Korean because of that, I was was really into K-pop, so I started studying by myself, Korean, so that I could understand.
12. Quiero hablar con la familia de mi pareja en su idioma. "I want to speak to my partner's family in their language."
And more than ever like there are so many international couples, I think, they're from different countries.
13. Vivo en un país en donde se habla el idioma. "I live in a country that speaks the language."
When I was living in Belgium, I was interested in learning French, so I decided not to go for another language.
14. Vivo junto a un país donde se habla el idioma. "I live next to a country that speaks the language."
That's always nice if you're close to it, and you can visit it, and practice it. Like now with the locals airlines it's gotten very easy, so…
15. Me gusta la comida del país. "I like the country's food."
One of the first things I learn in a language that’s food. Yeah, I’m really interested in that, I guess. So yeah.
So this is the end of today’s 15 reasons to learn Spanish. If you have any more reasons you’d like to add please tell us in the comments. Thank you for watching, please don't forget to subscribe. Bye!

Hola Ricky,


Gracias por tu comentario. :wink:

"encantar" y "amar" se pueden utilizar como sinonimos cuando te refieras a cosas, actividades que te gustan mucho.

Saludos,

Carla

No big deal, but one of the 15 items in the video:


Me gusta la comida del país.


is not in the vocabulary list. Instead the vocabularly list includes:


Es una parte importante de mi religión.


PS. I like series. It is kind of fun. The words are not too challenging and the speakers (both Rosa and the person whom you hear when you click on the speaker icon in the vocabulary list) are both easy to understand.
