We love this guy in the photo, a regular for years in Madrid’s retiro park, by the statue of the ‘Angel Caído’. He knew how to deal with the heat – get out and enjoy it!
With 41ºC/105ºF in Madrid last weekend and 35+º this week, Marina and I (Ben) are saying:
¡Madre mía, qué calor! – My goodness it’s hot!
To really impress Spanish speakers with your real Spanish, you can also say:
¡Qué calor! ¡Me va a dar algo! – It’s so hot, It’ll be the end of me!
¡Me muero de calor! – I’m dying of heat
¡Hace un sol de justicia! – The sun is incredibly strong (a classic phrase in Madrid!)
What should I buy to most improve my Spanish?
We say, the right pack for your level, and if in doubt and you want maximum improvement, go for The Whole Enchilada.
“…ended up getting The Whole Enchilada… I have gone from Inspired Beginner to practically fluent with the help of this program.”
“This is the single best investment I’ve made in my self-education approach to learning Spanish.”
Un abrazo fuerte,
Ben y Marina
