So you want to improve your listening skills in Spanish? Watch the video below and answer the questions in between and at the end of the video.  If you want to get the most out of the video though then you can check out this post on how to go about a listening activity.

In a nutshell, to take advantage of a listening activity, you have to put in some work.  Improve your listening skills in Spanish is not hard but you do have to work a little.  Here are have steps to get the most out of a listening activity.

  1. Listen with subtitles in Spanish or get the transcript of the audio.
  2. Get familiar with the words you don’t know. Look for them in a dictionary.
  3. Listen again without subtitles.
  4. Answer the questions in the video.
  5. Do imitation exercised or shadow reading.

What’s the video about?

Ciclovía in Bogotá, the capital of Colombia (not “Columbia” 😉 ) is an activity that takes place EVERY Sunday and festivo (holiday). Most main streets in the city are closed and people take advantage of this space to do outdoor activities.

You can see a lot of people riding bikes (or ciclas like we say in Colombia). Even the police ride ciclas! There’s also people running or jogging. People also take their dogs out to walk or run. You won’t only see people doing that. You can also see people rollerblading, doing yoga or dancing.

There are stages where instructors lead the activities and people really enjoy working out and dancing to the rhythm of the music.  With that, we hope you enjoy the video.
