One of my passions, other than languages, is music, so that’s exactly what today’s post is all about. I was thinking recently that I didn’t actually know a huge amount of music-related vocabulary, so I thought I’d learn some! Here’s some of what I found…

la letra – lyrics

la actuación – gig

el soloista – soloist

el dueto – duet

el cantautor – singer-songwriter

el escenario – stage

el altavoz – speaker

el concierto acústico – acoustic concert

And finally, here’s a phrase that I picked up:

¡Que empiece ya, que el público se va! – Hurry up, the audience is going to leave. (Often chanted when the start of a concert is delayed.)

Hola a tod@s,

I’m Sam Neal and I’m a 16 year-old Spanish learner. Now I know what you’re thinking: I’m only 16, so what do I know? Well, I’m not here to provide Spanish lessons as such, more to share my Spanish learning experiences and to post new Spanish as and when I learn it, so that you can pick it up too.

I’ve been learning Spanish for just over a year now, and would consider myself an intermediate Spanish speaker. That is, I can communicate pretty well with Spanish people, and have a good range of vocabulary and a good understanding of grammar. However, there is still a long way for my to go to achieve my goal of Spanish fluency, so keep an eye on this blog and hopefully there’s a lot you can pick up and learn. If you like something, or have anything similar to add, don’t forget to leave a comment so that we can all benefit from your thoughts.

Hasta pronto!

p.s. Here I am for all you people who like to put a face to a name…

Sam Neal
