Ep. 1 - El salto del tigre
In the first ever episode of the Jacob Learns Spanish podcast, Jacob and Lissette talk about Spanish sex positions, how to swear like a sailor in Spanish, and a variety of other strange things. Talk about starting off with a bang!
I'm super excited to welcome you to the first episode of the Jacob Learns Spanish podcast! When recording this episode way back in August 2022, we didn't know what the podcast was going to be called yet, so you'll have to excuse us for that! Remember if you like the show to give us some stars, we love stars!
What Is Jacob Learns Spanish?
In case you're here for the first time and wondering what is going on, Jacob Learns Spanish is my challenge to myself to get to conversational Spanish as fast as possible, by using what I've learnt from over 10 years of teaching English plus also teaching myself Czech. The aim is to focus on the things most frequently used every day and have a laugh while doing so.
You can learn everything I'm learning on our YouTube Channel, and then listen to the podcast to hear me trying to put what I've learnt into practice. Hopefully by listening along you'll learn a bunch too, and maybe even have a laugh every now and again!
In This Episode
In the very first episode of Jacob Learns Spanish, we dive right into Spanish sex positions, get to know myself and Lissette a bit, and talk about Lissette's dodgy hometown in Ecuador.
“In Spain, we have a special sex position called The Pouncing Tiger, in which a guy hides on top of a wardrobe then pounces on you"
Lots of other strange topics are discussed, lots of bad Spanish is spoken by me, and Lissette teaches us how to swear like a native.
Learn The Words From This Episode
After each episode, we put all the words and phrases that I learnt into this free google sheet which you can find here.
In addition to putting the translations in there, we also put an example sentence in Spanish, with the associated English translation so you can see how it's used! It's a bit basic but at least you'll have all the words from each episode in one place that you can copy and paste wherever you like.
Listen To The Audio Podcast Only
You can find the Jacob Learns Spanish Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and any other podcasting app. We'd deeply appreciate some stars if you enjoy it!
