SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS FOR ENTRY INTO SPANISH III - Spanish Podcasts
During the third week of August, you will receive a packet in the mail from me with the transcripts, questions, and directions for this assignment, which you should plan to complete between August 26 and September 9, being ready to 'go' the first day of class - September 16th. Our first week of class will be based on your work on these podcasts. Your first graded assignment will be to produce a shorter version of your own podcast in the style of one of the podcasts you studied.
1. You must listen to TWO of the following podcasts - links #1-3
As Ben and Marina advise, “Don’t panic if these podcasts feel really challenging! They should! Listen to the Spanish conversation, with the transcript if you like, then listen to the second-half ‘analysis’ section. Finally, listen to the Spanish section at the beginning again – it will feel much easier second time through, and we promise that no matter how challenging this may seem, this ‘real immersion’ is the best possible thing you can do for your Spanish.”
2. The first podcast listed below - link #1 is REQUIRED LISTENING.
3. You must choose ONE of the other two options to prepare for class.
