Episode Info:

This free Spanish audio lesson introduces the “Giving Directions in Spanish” series at docmolly.com. As requested by Bien, a listener, we are going to practice giving directions in Spanish within a hospital.

First, we will review the vocabulary. Then, we will put this vocabulary to use to give directions in Spanish. Normally we are speaking with strangers when we ask for and give directions. Therefore, we will use the usted conjugation for all the verbs.

Update to Audio on 7/22/2018

Listened to this episode again while driving in the car and decided to make the following changes:

~ 1 min – Since I start the sentence with hopefully, I decided to conjugate poder in the subjunctive, rather than the future tense: “Hopefully, the next time someone asks you, ‘Dónde está el vestíbulo,’ where’s the lobby, puedas responder con fluidez.

~ 2:40 min – I added the audio flashcard: “as you leave the elevator” >> “al salir del ascensor.” This was missing from the original episode.

BTW, if you ever notice that I goof, just leave a comment or send me an email at molly@docmolly.com. ¡Gracias!

Hasta la próxima.
