CBS Mag 4.02 | Ritmos latinos: la bachata

Welcome to another episode of the Coffee Break Spanish Magazine! This time Mark and Anabel go through a text about bachata, a popular type of Latin music, and discuss its origin and influences. Along the way, we provide explanations about a range of grammar and vocabulary points including: how to use se trata de and trata de to mean 'it’s about'; using the prefix des- in words like desamor and deshacer; and using the passive se. To finish, Marina joins Mark to discuss our cherry on top: dar el do de pecho.

In each episode of this 10-lesson season for intermediate learners you can build your vocabulary, increase your understanding of grammar and learn to use the Spanish language in a more natural way. This series is aimed at intermediate Spanish learners.
