Duolingo Podcasts

Have yolistened to any of the Duolingo Podcasts? They are soooooo good! They are like an easier version of Radio Ambulante and tell interesting and uplifting stories from all over the Spanish speaking world.

I have listened to a ton of them (there are 60 total) because they are perfect for a screen-break-walk. Here are some of my favorites. And here is a detailed listening/question guide that I made for Episodio  52: Otro camino hacia la victoria

I hope to develop more listening/question guides like that, but in the meantime, I made this template (adapted a bit from Bethanie Drew's template) to use for my Spanish 4 and Cultura y Civilización classes this fall. I also made the video below to explain some things to my students. I have included some gramática in there... these upper level students really like grammar! UPDATE: The grammar section is now only for extra credit.

  1. Hola Kara, también descubrí los podcasts de Duolingo y pienso usarlos para complementar algunas unidades. Encuentro que son un poco artificiales pero pienso que van a funcionar muy bien con mis alumnos.

    1. Hola Leticia, ¿por qué piensas que los podcasts son artificiales? Tienes algunas sugerencias y alternativas para que los estudiantes escuchen materiales autenticos en los diferentes niveles de español?
