Podcasts and PDFS to help you learn Spanish: dpili.com, the diary of a Spanish girl in Salamanca

by Erin

Pili from Salamanca recently left a comment on several of our posts, so I wandered over to check out her site. It's a perfect addition to any how-I-can-learn-Spanish-from-home list. Here's a snippet from her "About Me":

"My name is Pili and I'm a Spanish girl. I'm 20 years old and I'm studing Fine Arts at the University of Salamanca. I'd like to be a painter. I like to go "tapear" (to a Spanish bar, you know) go to some parties, but specially I like to travel around the world. Last year I studied in USA, when I met my friend Lucy. She is studing Spanish there. I write a spoken diary for her and for all of you. You can visit me every week in www.dpili.com and download a free podcast."

Once a week Pili posts a short podcast in Spanish with an accompanying PDF in Spanish. Each podcast is a letter to her American friend Lucy, back in Ohio and is a fun and realistic look at the life of a university student here in Salamanca, Spain.

We think it is yet another good way to build up your Spanish from home!

Hi friends!

I have renewed my website and I'm back with a new feature: I've persuaded a few university teachers of Spanish into preparing a didactic material. So, Lucy and others students can learn better grammar and vocabulary I use in my podcast.

The didactic guide includes a transcription of the podcast and a transcription of a brief explanation about some difficult expressions I use, as well as several listening comprehension, vocabulary and grammar activities. Check the guide podcast 0 out in my website www.dpili.com, you will find it in pdf format, so you can download it for FREE!

I would like to invite you to subscribe to my podcast at least for a month: you could download and save (not only listen!) all the podcasts (mp3 format) and you will get their didactic guides.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!!
