Spanish listening activity with food

¡Comida costeña en Bogotá!

spanish listening activity with food

This Spanish listening activity is special.  Why?  Because it is a Spanish listening activity with food!  In this video, we are going to meet Laura.  She and her husband own a restaurant in Bogotá called Cañaguate Sabores Costeños that serves typical food found from the coast of Colombia.  The food is fast and delicious but what makes it really unique is how you don’t find this type of food all over the city.

What you are going to find on the menu is a variety of fried foods and fruit juices. Including juice made from zapote, which is Cody’s absolute favorite fruit juice. However, we have never seen it anywhere other than around the coast of Colombia.  The same goes for a lot of other menu items that you can not find anywhere else in the city.

Some of the menu items even left a native Colombian scratching their head because they had not heard of them.  These fried treats and yummy fruit juices from the coast of the country are a nice surprise in the concrete jungle of Bogotá.  There were several things we had never heard of and all the ones we tried were delicious.

If you find yourself craving a carimañola with a zapote juice and happen to be in Bogotá then make sure to check out Cañaguate Sabores Costeños.

You connect with them on Facebook and Instagram @canaguatesaborescostenos or just click the links below.

Also, don’t forget to watch until the end of the video where you will find questions to test your Spanish listening skills. This time we have a mix of multiple-choice and fill in the blank.


Did you understand this yummy Spanish listening activity with food?  Do you want to understand native Spanish speakers? Most people complain they can understand their teachers but not anybody else in Spanish. The reason is: Your teacher (if it is a real teacher) is trained to talk to you in a way that you will understand. If you are ready to go past that point, check out our course:
