Upper-Intermediate Spanish Course

In this free Spanish video lesson we will look at different ways to describe things that taste or smell bad in Spanish such as Huele mal (It smells bad) or Huele que apesta (It stinks). This is the second lesson in a series of five Spanish lessons on the topic of describing taste and smell in Spanish. In the following lessons we will see how to describe things you like according to their flavours and smells in Spanish, how to describe things you dislike according to their flavours and smells in Spanish and finally how to describe different tastes in Spanish such as Dulce (Sweet), Salado (Salty/Savoury) or Amargo (Bitter). In the previous Spanish lesson we looked at different ways to describe things that taste or smell well in Spanish such as Huele fenomenal (It smells great) or Está muy bueno (It tastes very good). Eating has to be one of my greatest passions and I think that I love talking about food almost as much as I love eating it. I love trying different foods from around the world and of course I love my own Spanish cuisine very much indeed. If you are interested in Spanish food and fancy trying out a few simple traditional Spanish recipes please check out my list of Spanish recipes from gathered from all around Spain by clicking here.
