Episode 3 of The Garbanzo Spanish Podcast is Available Now! La canguro Catrina

September 6, 2022

Have you ever wanted to avoid talking to someone? We just released Episode 3 of the Garbanzo Spanish podcast, and this episode shares a story about a silly trick that one kangaroo used to try to avoid talking to a bad kangaroo. This story is told by Camila del Castillo, who is originally from Uruguay. In addition to being an amazing Voice Artist, Camila teaches Spanish in New Jersey. She starts by reviewing some key vocabulary from the first two episodes and sharing some new words that will help you to understand the new episode.

Like all of our stories, Episode 3 is almost entirely in Spanish, making it a perfect immersive language learning experience for beginning Spanish language learners. This episode most closely aligns with Somos 1 Unit 1.

Core vocabulary: dice, responde, bueno/malo, ¿cómo te llamas?

Episode length: (11:04 min, story @ 2:20)
