The Spanish-speaking world is not just interesting because of its language; our culture is also very rich. Though the Spanish-speaking world is comprised of many countries, there are some aspects that unite us apart from our language such as the activities we like to do. You will find that many people in Spain and Latin America have a lot in common with you! You probably like to do a lot of the same kinds of things as people your age do in Spain, Argentina, or Mexico, for example. But you may find that we like to add our own Latin flair to the things we do. Today, we will learn how to talk in Spanish about activities that people like and don't like to do. We'll also look at some of these activities that are common around the world, and maybe some that aren't. Select the play button to access the Amigos y actividades video from Realidades.
