Tomorrow, March 8, is International Women’s Day. There are many ways to celebrate this day, and we believe that one of the best ways is by practicing Spanish. That’s why we prepared this post: 3 ways to practice Spanish during International Women’s Day, where we share three suggestions that we hope you’ll find interesting!
The first option is a touching film about the life of Biography of the Spanish lawyer and activist Concepcion Arenal Ponte. Concepción was the first woman that attended the universityin Spain. In order to do so she had to pretend she was a man, since university education was banned to women. She was also the founder of the Feminist Movement in Spain, as well as an influential writer and lawyer.
Here you can find information about the movie “Concepción Arenal, La visitadora de cárceles”, as well as a link to watch it live from anywhere in the world through the website of RTVE. The film will air tomorrow at 10pm Spanish time (GMT +1). Also, if you can’t follow it live tomorrow, you can watch it any other day in this link.
You can also see the trailer here…and to tell you the truth; it looks like it’s going be a great movie!
The second suggestion is for those who prefer to watch something shorter or a more current issue. It is a short film entitled “It girl”. Spanish director Oriel Puig talks about the lives of popular bloggers: girls who have turned their exposure on social networks into their way to make a living. “It girl” is a fresh and contemporary short, ideal for practicing your Spanish listening skills.
