This lesson is part of the Beginner Spanish Practice Course
(58 Spanish video or mp3 lessons. 2 hrs 28 mins)
This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at beginner level with a native Spanish speaker.
In this Spanish lesson we will practice asking travel times and buying tickets in Spanish. Specifically, we will practice a roleplay together arranging a trip at the train station, asking for times of departures and arrivals and discussing prices. This type of practice is essential if you are to manage successfully speaking Spanish when you are travelling in a Spanish speaking country. It really isn’t so difficult to negotiate the basics of buying a ticket in Spanish in a ticket office, the hardest bit is getting off the ground and having the confidence to start speaking Spanish for the first time. For this reason, I hope these types of interactive Spanish roleplays in everyday situations will serve you well in your preparation.
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.
This lesson practices the information taught in Beginner Spanish Lesson 45: Asking times and buying tickets in Spanish from my Beginner Spanish Course.
