ENDORSEMENT ACADEMY HANDBOOK

 

El INTERNADO

This year you will need access to a Netflix account.  On-line accounts are approximately $8 per month, if you don't already have one.  Out of class we will be watching a Spanish (from Spain) program called El Internado.  I would like to get started and see what the difficulty level is for all of the participants before we determine how quickly we will proceed.  
Prior to the first class, please watch Season 1, Episode 1.  Put the Spanish subtitles on.  I recommend you watch this episode a minimum of 2 times.  Once you get started you will be tempted to binge-watch. This is great for input!  But I'd prefer, at least in the beginning, that you stay with the class so that we can more deeply explore the content and vocabulary in each episode.  You are also welcome to use that Netflix account to watch other tv shows and movies in Spanish.  There are a lot now.
