Learn Spanish with Coca-Cola Light – Funny Commercials in Spanish

There are many ways to practice Spanish, and when it comes to finding entertaining ways to do it.

Being creative and flexible is an important asset that separates fast learners from those who get bored and quit.

Today we will use a funny Coca-Cola commercial to practice Spanish while discussing a little about Mexican culture.

Although there are many stereotypes about the “Mexican macho”, the role of men in modern society has changed considerably in recent years.

Today we will look at a commercial that talks about this topic from a humorous point of view by making it look like a superhero movie trailer.

To make the most out of this exercise I recommend the following sequence:

First, watch the entire commercial in Spanish without clicking on pause. Try to understand as much as possible (don’t worry too much if there are parts you don’t get, it’s normal).

Second, play the commercial one more time and scroll down so you can read the transcript in Spanish and the translation in English in order to understand what the commercial talks about (don’t be afraid to pause and rewind as much as needed).

Third, watch the entire commercial in Spanish one more time and try to understand as much as possible. If at this point there are still several sections of the commercial you don’t fully understand, go back and read the transcript one more time until you understand the entire commercial without a problem.

And that’s all. It’s easy, huh?

Now it’s time to get started, ready?


Here is the commercial in Spanish:

Here is a transcript of the commercial in both Spanish and English:
