This lesson is part of the Beginner Practice Spanish Course
(58 Spanish video or mp3 lessons. 2 hrs 28 mins)
This is an interactive Spanish video where you get the chance to practice your Spanish skills at beginner level with a native Spanish speaker.
In this Spanish lesson we will practice more things related to introducing yourself in Spanish and exchanging pleasantries – specifically how to state your job in Spanish and ask what other people do for a profession in Spanish. In the original Spanish theory lesson we looked at lots of useful Spanish vocabulary related to different jobs in Spanish and here you get the chance to test your knowledge and see how much you remember from the first lesson.
Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.
