Movies and tv shows
Note: Best to learn are shows with English and Spanish subtitles, English and Spanish audio with the Spanish audio matching the subtitles
Cable Girls – Las chicas del cable (Spain) – Netflix: Set in the 1920s, this is the story of four women from different backgrounds newly hired as operators for a phone company. Originally in Spanish with Castilian accent. Good story with character development and some historical social commentary. The Spanish audio matches the Spanish sub-titles! Has English audio and English sub-titles, though not an exact match. The Spanish said is close to what said in English for translation, but not word for word. To learn the story can watch in English or put on English sub-titles, then re-watch using Spanish audio with Spanish sub-titles. The Spanish matches exactly (nearly always). Can read along and listen. Can write down what is said for practice. Try listening and transcribing, then re-play with sub-titles to check. Very useful! Best show that have found. Has some music in English that plays at points, but there is not a lot of long dead silence or dramatic pauses that find in many “Spanish soap operas – novelas”.
Grand Hotel / Gran hotel (Spain)- Netflix: 1905. Julio, a young man, arrives at the Grand Hotel, an idyllic place in the middle of the countryside, to investigate the disappearance of his sister.
Metastisis – Netflix: If you liked English language “Breaking Bad”, then this is a good choice. The story has been re-made in Columbia with same script translated directly into Spanish.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Netflix: Originally in English. This is a bit of a dark comedy, but has me laughing. The Spanish spoken does not match the Spanish sub-titles (and what said in Spanish – as much as I can tell – is not a perfect match to the English sub-titles either). Would use just as listening practice.
