Do you love to watch television series, but still don’t know how to talk about them in Spanish? Practice with this infographic full of vocabulary and expressions and read the dialogue 😊
Let’s see an example:
Mi serie favorita es “La casa de papel”.
¿Y dónde la ves? ¿La echan en la tele?
¡No! La veo en Netflix. Es muy buena.
¿De qué va?
Va de un grupo de personas que se juntan para atracar la casa de la moneda en Madrid, España. La casa de la moneda es donde se fabrica el dinero.
¡Mola! ¡Qué guay!
Estoy super enganchada…el prota (el protagonista) es “El profesor” y es un tío muy inteligente que lo ha planeado todo. También hay más personajes y todos tienen nombres de ciudades.
¡Eeeeeeeeh! ¡Para! ¡No me hagas spoiler que quiero verla!
Y tú, ¿estás viendo ahora alguna serie?
Estoy engachado a un reality que se llama “La isla de las tentaciones”.
¡Dios mío! Suena a telebasura…
Jajaajajaj…Sí… ¡pero a mí me gusta! Un día estaba haciendo zapping y empecé a verlo y me enganché.
¿Dónde lo echan?
En Telecinco los domingos y los miércoles. La presentadora me encanta. Ésta es la segunda temporada, pero en la primera la presentadora era una cantante muy famosa que se llama Mónica Naranjo.
¡Sí! En la primera temporada vi uno o dos capítulos, pero no me gustó. Prefiero los concursos o los documentales.
Entonces te recomiendo ver La 2 que es uno de los canales de la televisión pública de España y que tiene muchos programas culturales.

In this video you are going to learn a very important vocabulary lesson in Spanish: The products we use on a daily basis
Hygiene products such as shampoo or cream, beauty products such as nail polish and makeup products such as mascara or glitter.
In this lesson I explain how to correctly use the basic vocabulary that we use in the bathroom and cosmetics and its correct pronunciation in Spanish.
Muletillas are Fillers words or phrases that we use to “support” ourselves when speaking in Spanish.
The fillers exist in all languages and help to sound more natural and in some cases they help us to buy time to think about what we are going to say or what word we are going to use.
Here you have some very practical material and a very fun exercise for you to practice. Leave me a comment;)
Replace English words with Spanish fillers (there are many options!)
It’s very simple. Pretérito pluscuamperfecto is the past of the past. When we talk about a story happened in the past and make reference to another that happened before … We use Pretérito pluscuamperfecto! As you already know the irregular participles it is very easy! Combine the auxiliary verb HABER in Pretérito imperfecto.
When you started studying Spanish, had you visited any Spanish-speaking country before?
Answer in the comments! (In Spanish!)
When we tell a story from the past and describe the circumstances surrounding it, we use Pretérito imperfecto. Also when an action is usual or lengthens in time. Here you can find its uses and conjugation. Luckily … There are only three irregular verbs! 😊

We use Pretérito perfecto to talk about actions that have happened in the past but related in some way to the present and to talk about experiences we have lived (without a specific time). Its conjugation is very simple: We use the auxiliary verb HABER + the participle but… watch out for the irregular participles!
