What is fashion? Is it about wearing and showing off expensive brands, or about combining your clothes with style? Well, I (Rob) don’t proclaim to know much about fashion, but that doesn’t stop me from having an opinion! One thing I noticed about fashion based Spanish vocabulary is how many of the words are borrowed from English (not all official – some you won’t find in the dictionary) – perhaps it sounds fashionable to use English when you speak Spanish. Here are some examples which come up in our podcast, you’ll be able to guess what they mean:

  • Fashionista
  • Unos tenis (this actually means “trainers/sneakers”…)
  • Los jeans
  • Un bóxer
  • Un nuevo look

We also talk about how someone can “meter gato por liebre” – to exchange you a cat for a hare! This is when someone sells you something, pretending it’s something it isn’t (like, “to sell a lemon”). Has this ever happened to you?

Hola Liz y Rob, pueden hacer una sección de vocabularios esenciales/difíciles de cada podcast adeḿas la sección que dice “transcript/translation…”? Muchas gracias!

Its upsetting to see the Transcriptions hidden now under a paid service, especially for the podcasts that were offered truly free in the last year.

We’ve never offered the transcriptions for free. We offer the audio episodes for the whole series for free – there are paid extras for those who want to take it further though.

I guess at somepoint when I created my account( a few weeks ago )I was able to access the transcriptions, follow them , and go through the time and the entire transcriptions rob. This included going through each 30 second link. Weird…

You can access the transcripts for the first 3 episodes of each series for free, maybe this is what you used?

Interesting did not know that. Thanks Rob
