LEER ES CHIDO
Leer es chido means Reading is cool
We know that reading is an amazing way to boost your Spanish skills. It adds vocabulary, helps with grammar and expands you horizons. But sometimes reading in another language can seem daunting.
That’s why we designed a special, exclusive show for our Patron community. Here’s how it works:
1. The first Thursday of the month we upload an article, song or short story. The document has difficult words highlighted in red. The English translation of the words can be found in the glossary at the end of the page.
2. The second Thursday of the month you can download an mp3 short episode (8-13 mins.) where we discuss the text and teach our listeners key grammar points.
It sounds awesome, right?
This an exclusive show and is not available in any other place or platform.
This benefit is available for Patrons who are in the tier Amigo and higher.
