Liz and Rob talk about their families. We soon find out that Liz has an enormous family, with over thirty cousins! Cuántos primos tienes tu?
Rob: Spanish Obsessed beginners podcast episode 7, la familia. Hola Lis, ¿que tal?
Lis: Hola Rob
Rob: ¿Que tal?
Lis: Muy bien, muy bien, pensando en mi familia.
Rob: Pensando en tu familia. Thinking of your family. Yes, so the topic of today is la familia, which means family, and there are a few differences in the way that families are seen and regarded, 00:30 between English and Latin American cultures, I know that Lis is pretty much every day on Skype to her mum, to her sisters back in Colombia, even with one of her sisters who lives in London, always talking on Skype as well! And then with my mum, I probably speak once a week, so family in Colombia and Latin American cultures in general is much more important, or at least 1:00 much more central. It’s important in English as well, but family is much more central to your life in Colombia.
