Charly Sinewan on his pan-American tour that will take him to Argentina, crosses a reten, this is a check-point erected by civilians against the cartels, and then passes the frontier to Guatemala, which now appears very modern compared to years ago.
tons of subtitles

El portal Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL) nos ofrece Prueba de Vocabulario, un juego con una serie de palabras en castellano que nos permite evaluar nuestro conocimiento del idioma a través de un sencillo ejercicio en el que se nos presentan 100 palabras, algunas de ellas inventadas, y debemos de responder cuales conocemos o no. De esta forma este recurso puede ser llevado a las aulas como una manera de evaluar al alumnado en su nivel de conocimiento del idioma y a su vez ampliar su vocabulario con nuevas palabras.

The Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL) offers us Vocabulary Test, a game with a series of words in Spanish that allows us to evaluate our knowledge of the language through a simple exercise in which we are presented with 100 words, some of them invented, and we have to answer which ones we know or do not know. In this way, this resource can be taken to the classroom as a way of assessing students' level of knowledge of the language and at the same time expanding their vocabulary with new words.

I took this test and here is the result.

At 43% being correct, I like the fact that I never labeled an incorrect word as correct

I like that Pablo does his videos completely in Spanish and his primary focus is communication. He wants his audience to understand. He uses simple language and lots of gestures and a bit of repetition.

To me, Pablo exemplifies Schekhtam strategies in which one doesn't let linguistic competence limit meaningful communication. He's a native of Spain, so any deficiency in linguistic competence is not on his side of the street. Rather, he gives fantastic, implicit examples of using simple language, gestures and facial expressions to get a point across.

I messed around a bit with YouTube's Playback Speed feature since he sometimes demonstrates multiple circumlocutions to fortify his communication to maximize his viewer's understanding. One of the neat things about speeding up the video is that body language becomes more apparent and using that well is a skill in and of itself.

Via Kunig, 500 years of pilgrimage

Mittelalterlexikon
Hermann Künig von Vach (around 1450 - after 1495). Son of a respected family in Vacha an der Wrra (northeast of Fulda). Enrolled in Erfurt in 1466, where he received his bachelor's degree in the faculty of arts in 1469 as Hermannus Koninck de Vach. Shortly afterwards he joined the Servite order there, where the history of the monastery calls him a terminator (alms collector). A later entry in the same source describes him as absent, which may be justified with a pilgrimage to Compostela. In any case, around 1495 he wrote such a detailed description of the pilgrimage from Einsiedeln in Switzerland to Santiago de Compostela and back to Aachen that one can deduce from his own experience. The little book went to print immediately and had several new editions by 1521. It is regarded as "the classic classic German pilgrim guide to Compostela" and gives valuable information on the nature of roads and paths, distances, holy places or water points along the way, exchange rates, customs duties and opportunities to be cheated, food, to hostels and hospitals, hosts and their friendliness or hostility towards Germans and much more

The original prose in some kind of late Medieval German can be seen from page 98 in the archive source mentioned by Kraut. Before that there is a long rant in Modern German.
