Bilingual Episode (Spanish): Language Learning con Salsa 💃🏾 with Tamara Marie

When was the last time you sang a song in your target language? What about dancing in it?

In today's interview, you'll learn what it means to connect to a language through music, and how the culture-first approach helped my guest Tamara Marie from Spanish con Salsa discover new connections, experiences and even insights into her own ancestry.

  • The origins of Salsa as a music style and a way of life
  • How the song Rebelión by Joe Aroyo changed Tamara's life as a language learner
  • How learning Spanish helped Tamara connect to her ancestry as a black woman in the USA
  • Why the Caribbean music scene can teach you an authentic and diverse way of speaking Spanish
  • How to switch off your thinking mind as a language learner

Bilingual Episode

I took the opportunity to ask Tamara a few questions in Spanish in this episode. You will hear her reply in Spanish and conduct the conversation like that for about 10 minutes. If you are not a Spanish learner, don't worry as we'll always switch back to English.

Here I always like to remember what the late Ron Gullekson from Language Surfer told me: "in a new language, I like to get uncomfortable as early as possible." So enjoy the challenge and enjoy the practice!

Gracias to Lindsay Williams for her linguistic support in Spanish. and to you for listening to the Fluent Show! If you enjoyed this episode, please consider supporting the show by leaving a review in your podcast app or becoming a member of our Patreon community.
