Learn Spanish Fast #5 Evento de Tunguska



¡Bienvenido al quinto episodio para aprender español de Sprintalk! Welcome to the fifth episode for learning Spanish by Sprintalk!


Just as a reminder, I want to remind you that the podcast “Learn Spanish Fast with Borja” is based on the Sprintalk method of language learning. That is to say, it is about exposing the brain to a new language in a contextualised way and dealing with interesting topics or topics that arouse interest so that the brain tries to understand not because it wants to learn the language but because it wants to understand what I am saying, because the topic itself is interesting. This way your mind unconsciously tries to understand the language better because it is interested in the topic of the episode. In addition, each episode uses a vocabulary designed to crush certain structures and to learn faster. For example, today, like last week, we will talk about an event that took place in the past. So we will use verbs in the past tense. In other episodes we will talk about an event that will take place in the future, using future tenses. In other episodes we will talk about what would happen or what a particular scenario would be like if something happened, using conditionals, etc. 


To absorb a language, the mood is also very important, so listen to the music and relax as we are about to start ok?


Today I will talk about the most mysterious and biggest explosion in human history and what we know about it. Remember to download the transcript at sprintalk.com/spanish

In the year 1908, the largest explosion in the history of mankind took place; a huge explosion of more than 15 megatons, equivalent to a thousand Hiroshima bombs, which occurred at 07.13 a.m. on June 30, 1908 in Siberia, Russia. In just a few seconds, a scorching heat set the sky ablaze, and a deafening explosion buried more than 80 million trees in an area of more than two thousand kilometres of forest.
