Extra en Español
Extra is a language education television series scripted in the format of a Friends-esque sitcom and is mainly marketed for middle school and high school language classes.
It is situated in the flat of two friends, Ana and Lola with Pablo, the friend from across the hall, frequently coming to visit. A friend from America, Sam, comes to stay – his Spanish is poor which means the others need to explain things and speak more slowly. It is a bit on the cheesy side but a lot of fun to watch.
This is a great way to pick up new vocab and increase your listening skills. For any words you are not sure of, it’s really simple to pick these up from the visual queues.
