American Dream, el sueño del otro lado. A play by Brad Erickson.

American Dream, a play by Brad Erickson

American Dream, a play by Brad Erickson

I always suspected Brad Erickson was #gifted, not only in his study of Spanish but from his deep insights and sensibility in conversation. A man of words, who could make himself perfectly understood in Spanish. It is hard to express yourself in another language, especially feelings and ideas, but Brad’s command has always been extraordinary. He immediately got the essence of the language and the unique personality a different language possesses. Continue reading

Mi hombre photo by Leland Francisco

Mi hombre photo by Leland Francisco

This is a magnificent story by Rosa Montero from her book Amantes y enemigos. Read, enjoy and give us your opinion, in Spanish.

Keep the folllowing  questions in mind while you read, and then answer them using the subjunctive when necessary:

¿De qué se queja la protagonista?

¿Qué es lo que le gustaría que fuera diferente?

¿Qué espera la protagonista de él? ¿Qué espera él de ella?

¿Qué es lo que no soporta de su esposo? 

¿Qué es lo que le enfada?

¿Qué  le pone contenta? 

¿Qué le da miedo?

¿Es lógico que se sienta así?

¿Creen que tiene razón ella? 

Mi Hombre

Me he casado con un descuartizador de aguacates. Ya comprenderán que mi matrimonio es un fracaso. Cuando conocí a mi marido yo tenía diecinueve años. Por entonces estaba convencida de que el día más hermoso en la vida de una muchacha era el día de su boda, y cada vez que veía una novia me ponía a moquear de emoción como una tonta. Ahora tengo cuarenta y tres años y no me divorcio porque me da miedo vivir sola. Continue reading
