After 100 blog posts, I thought it was time to try other things. I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a podcast for months. And now, finally, the Spanish for the Camino podcast is here.
Unlike the blog, podcast episodes will be in Spanish.
The idea with the blog was to help those with no Spanish at all to learn at least some basics.
But I know that some of you have those basics covered and are looking for something more advanced. And that’s where the podcast comes in. Short episodes, on not too difficult Spanish and all about the Camino.
I recorded a very short episode in English explaining what you can expect from the podcast. And… you can also listen to the first ‘proper’ episode. In Spanish.
To give you some context before you listen: the title of Episode 1 is ‘Qué es el Camino de Santiago’ or, in English, ‘What is the Camino de Santiago’.
In this episode you’ll hear an overview of what the Camino is and how it started. You will also hear what the main routes are within Spain and some of the most common motivations to walk.
Without getting into too many details, because the episode is just over 6 minutes long.
The plan is not to turn the podcast into some sort of Camino encyclopaedia with lots of data (there already are some fantastic websites out there with plenty of information). The plan is to give you an opportunity to improve your Spanish while listening about one of your favourite topics: the Camino.
If you know me, you’ve probably heard me talk about the importance of consistency when learning a language. If you’re going to do 1 hour of Spanish a week, it’s much better to split it into shorter periods and do around 10 minutes a day, rather than doing the whole hour the same day.
And that’s one of the reasons why I plan to keep the podcast episodes short. They could be your 10 minutes of Spanish a day.
OK. Enough explaining.
