España en el cine – Spain at films

Where would you say Almodovar’s Volver was shot?  Did you know that Nicole Kidman shot Los Otros (The Others) at the northern region of Cantabria, Spain? Learning by watching films is always a good idea! Here we share this map of films shooted in Spain, for you to choose the region that you want to see. Notice that not all of them are spanish productions or are made totally with spanish actors, but in some of them you will be able to tell a regional accent!  Hope you enjoy and that you like all those the different Spains! 🙂

Spanish Naturally now using MONEDA SOCIAL (Local currency)

Spanish Naturally is from now on participating into nets of exchange with moneda social o local (local currency), giving spanish lessons without the use of conventional money. So how does that work? Social currency is an alternative system to traditional money exchange, out of the rules of capitalist economy and banks system, and focusing on local direct exchanges of products and services. “There are many ways of exchanging what we have and can do for the things we need.

So here we show you some common mistakes with spanish gender to which you should pay attention! 

Spanish diminutives: gatito or gatillo?

If you go walking down a street in Spain and we see a little tree, would you say “mira qué arbolito” or “mira qué arbolillo”?  Is there any difference? We have such an interesting variety of the diminutive in spanish, many ways to say that something is little, tiny or sweet. The most common and neutrum forms of the spanish diminutive are -ito and -illo, correspondant with the standard spanish variety. If we use some of the others we will be giving our partner more information about where we come from in Spain, or where we have learnt spanish. This diversity deals with the influence of the native peninsular languages […]

Abrazo House, learning in nature

  Here’s a big place for a big project! If you decide to visit Abrazo House you will have the chance to learn lots of useful things for a self sufficient and healthy life, such as how to build your own house, how to get food from nature, how to use solar energy and, of course, how to share life with others in nature. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Robert, Almu, and their two bilingual daughters have made their home there. They settled down some years ago in this amazing place at Valle de Aras (eastern Cantabria, not far from our also partner project Las Lindes), from which you can see […]
