There are many different ways to find entertaining alternatives to practice Spanish, and today we’ll take a look at one that also lets you find out about fun movies. We’re talking about watching fun movie trailers in both English and Spanish practice your listening and comprehension skills.
This is how it works:
You begin by watching the movie trailer in English.
Then watch the movie trailer in Spanish while trying to understand as much as possible.
Then, play the movie trailer in Spanish and scroll down to read the transcripts in Spanish (and the translations in English if required) in order to understand what is being said in the movie trailer.
The last step is to watch the movie trailer in Spanish again without reading the transcripts in order to make sure you understand all of it.
Now it’s time to get started, here are the new trailers in both English and Spanish:
Grown Ups 2 – Trailer in English
Son Como Niños 2 – Trailer in Spanish
Here are the transcripts for the trailers in English and Spanish:
