CBS Mag 4.10 | Maíz

We have reached the tenth and final episode in this series of the Coffee Break Spanish Magazine and we're rounding off the season by talking about one of the most cultivated cereals in the world - corn! Through the text featured in this episode, we find out where the term 'corn' comes from and its importance in Latin America. Of course, Mark and Anabel pick up on the important language points along the way. Alongside the range of nouns, verbs and adverbs, we hear some interesting phrases such as tener en común, querer decir and por cierto. That's not all! We also have the opportunity to practise forming plural phrases in Spanish and learn more about how to use propio/a and mismo/a.
