Stories in Spanish. This is something I wanted to share with you earlier, but simple didn’t have the chance to do so. Remember me writing about children’s books, and how important they’re for beginners? Right, I gave some tips for books, but unfortunately it’s quite difficult to get them if you’re not a member of Instituto Cervantes. Luckily enough there are some neat resources, of which I’d like to discuss one in this post.

Eleena of Voices en Español came up with the great idea of posting Spanish [translations of] children’s stories on the web, with the exact audio done by a native speaker. The accent of the speaker may vary, as the speakers vary. Nonetheless it’s a great source of reading-listening, next to the nice and simple (although real enough) language. Copying the audio to your mp3-player and printing out the text is a great way to learn while commuting. I’m actually planning to do so and just bring a marker with me so I can colour the unknown words and add the sentences to Anki.

The plan is to add one story per week, so there should be plenty of materials soon enough!

Could you find somebody else? This woman sounds like she's suffering of a terrible stomach ache.
My little daughter asks what's wrong with the senora.

Podria encontrar otro relatador? Esta mujer de Codys Cuentos suena como si estuviera sufriendo de dolores de estomago. Mi hijita me pregunta que le pasa a esa senora.
Gracias
