Siesta Show Webisode 44 - Learn how to say "one can" in Spanish.

We have received even more requests for Spanish lesson videos, so for today's show Susan gives us another brief Spanish lesson looking at the use of "Se puede..." which means "One can...".   It's a good way to tell people what you can do when on Holiday in Spain.

Any chance of making the clips where you say the sentence in Spanish a wee bit longer before going into the next clip, in order we oldies have a chance to repeat them. At the moment there doesn't seem enough time to do this or maybe we are slower than we think.
Apart from that great to have clips like this which are not to long whereby we can learn some of the language.

Great! Love these short language videos. Think it may be helpful though just to translate some of the terms - I know you make it easy with the "visuals" but it does help numpties like me understand! The "se puede ir de compras en el rastro" may puzzle some, especially with the verb "ir". Maybe sticking with phrases like ordering items in a restaurant or buying items in a store, etc., may be a little more helpful.

Excellent, more please (with English translation or subtitle if possible). Far easier to learn by listening than out of phrase book. One complaint though (very tongue in cheek) do you have to film on the beach with the gentle sound of waves breaking in the background, the sun shining, `children` enjoying playing in the playground whilst some of us have just come home from work, put the heating on and taken of a very wet coat. Maybe thats why we look forward to returning to Spain, although i have heard sometimes it also rains in Spain!

Hi Virginie

Sorry, about mentioning your name, I forgot that kids relish in knowing these kinds of details!

Please, can I have the exact name or even the company who built those outdoor exercise equipments you were on? It would be quite beneficial here on our island.

Thanks,
