The funniest thing all year!

I was reading along and halfway through it struck me that I was understanding every word easily. Wow! I was so pleased with my progress and then . . . I realized I was reading the Background segment which is in English!!! ¡Qué avergüenza!

¿A alguien más le ha pasado eso? Oh well, back to the grind . . . 

And now, having read-along with the audio, and failed in trying to figure out where the text related to the audio, it's almost enough to make me grab a plane and head for Seville. Well, a little more vocab and I'll be hot to trot  . . .

Hi Garry

This exercise has a very long introduction written by Shui about "La Feria" for those who don't know much about it or haven't heard of it. 

The text underneath the video is the transcription of the "song" in the video. The song is a typical type of song from Seville called "sevillanas" with 4 parts following a fixed rhythm. 

Here's another exercise on this same topic, this time a gapfill. In the intro you can also find a link to some vocabulary about la Feria de Abril. 

Saludos

thanks Inma. I really loved discovering the use of "Toma," as "Here, (take this)". There's always something new and different every day!
