Spanish podcasts let you improve your Spanish on the go. I listen at the gym and while walking, doing household chores, or driving. Spanish-language podcasts also help me survive long hours on planes and buses.

Presentación del libro «Demolingüística del español en Alemania»

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoHTh4XFRxQ

El Instituto Cervantes publica cada año diferentes investigaciones sobre los principales datos del español en el mundo. Asimismo, y buscando una mayor profundización en estos estudios, trabaja en colaboración y alianza con otras instituciones para la investigación en ámbitos geográficos más acotados.
Prueba de ello es el volumen «Demolingüística del español en Alemania», que inicia la colección «El español en Europa», creada en coedición con la Universidad de Heidelberg y la Universidad de Zúrich con el objetivo común de investigar y difundir la presencia del español en Europa.
«Demolingüística del español en Alemania» tiene como autores a Óscar Loureda Lamas, Francisco Moreno Fernández, Héctor Álvarez Mella y David Scheffler, que exponen, de un modo accesible, la posición de la lengua española dentro de la riqueza y diversidad del universo de lenguas en Alemania. Recurren para ello a textos explicativos junto a mapas, cuadros y gráficos ilustrativos que reflejan la distribución geográfica y las principales tendencias sociales de la comunidad hispanohablante alemana.

Modifying my method

So far I have been practising/consolidating etc via bi-directional translation (1)

recreated/memorized little stories, often hotel reviews, with the help of key words from the text(while on a swingstepper and pulling rubber bands hanging from above) (2)

I have tried drawing a story. This works well if the stories are linear and contain scenes that can be visualized easily (3)


I am now adding "consecutive translation": I record my German translation of a text, listen to it and try to translate it back into Spanish IN A LOUD VOICE , at the beginning with an eye on the Spanish text. I control the speed and length with a remote. (4)

(5) I am now also using another method for maintaining texts that at some point I could remember a hundred per cent, since remembering a text a hundred per cent does not necessarily mean that the pieces are available immediately in new combinations and contexts. I am dividing the texts up in meaningful chunks and start repetition at a random point and try to get back and forth in the text in my memory.

It can look like this: only one chunk is visible at a time.

1 Decidimos viajar a Gijón

2 con muy poco tiempo de antelación,

3 por lo que nos encontramos con

4 una alta ocupación en los hoteles y

5 unos precios algo elevados.

6 Como íbamos a pasar (tan) solo una noche,

7 nos valía con un hotel que

8 cumpliera su función,

9 por ello reservamos aquí.
