The power of Spanish telenovelas...

There was this one phase in my life where I couldn't get enough of Spanish telenovelas. During that time, Spanish telenovela was a huge hit in Malaysia. Tanya la bapak-bapak ibu-ibu kakak-kakak abang-abang adik-adik semua la yang korunk kenal mesti dorunk pon tengok Spanish telenovela jugak...

The Spanish telenovelas started affecting my life slowly since I was a kid. I kept on telling myself that I want to learn Spanish one day, so that I can watch the telenovelas without reading the subtitles..bajet kan? But yeah, since young I've always wanted to learn this second most spoken language in the world..second weh..second taw...English third kot..German no 10...and our national language, Malay is in the ranking at number 30.

I got an opportunity to learn Spanish at my university but there's a catch to it. I can learn the Spanish language but with German as the medium.Dah la still fresh blaja German nak blaja Spanish plak kan..But then, I think to myself.When would I ever get the chance again to learn Spanish for free? So i went for it..Took a beginner Spanish course and alhamdullillah i passed the exam with a good result..happie..terus motivated nak sambung second course kan..hee

 Ada gaya hot spanish actor x? haha...

After reading this article, I found out that watching telenovelas can actually help you to improve your Spanish tremendously. Not only that, listening to Spanish music can also do some good to you.Sambil menari Salsa belajar Spanish kan..

Here are some intro-videos from various Spanish telenovelas that I like..Mengembalikan nostalgia gitoe..

Mis tres hermanas


Yo soy Betty, la fea


La mujer de judas


Prisionera


Juana's Miracle


Rosalinda


Pasión de Gavilanes




The best way to learn spanish...
This website, SpanishDict is a really good website that I would recommend to those who want to start learning Spanish. The website offers various programmes to help you learn Spanish.It has a Spanish-English dictionary with provided pronunciation, interactive videos with variety of courses, vocabulary flashcards, Word of the Day, Phrasebook, Answers Forum and also Chat..Cool huh?

There are also other cool websites for you to learn a new language like Spanish.You can check out my old post entitled Learning a new language made easy. Best kan...jom ramai2 blaja Spanish..

Till the next post...Hasta la vista, baby!!!

I didn't get the chance to watch the other series u've mentioned..sedey..ada lagi video cam maria mercedes...secreto de amor..dan lain2

The Hfzh said...

Hye Nabil ! I've been reading your blog lama lah jugak. And every post about Germany makes me excited to go there. Kinda like a motivation.

Cause now i'm doing my alevel to Germany.

And seriously, i've been thinking on how to master Deutsch using other medium, not just book literally.

I've tried to look for some tv programs in Deutsch, but it goes in vain. Kat sana mmg tak banyak tv program/drama/entertainment program ke?

any suggestion to solve this? tq :)

Nabil Aizat Abdul Rahman said...

to the Hfzh:
It's good to know that u got motivated from my posts on Germany..hee..actually bnyk je tv programmes kat sini but im not sure if they are available in Malaysia..When i was in Malaysia, i always ask my german teacher for a new dvd of german movies...some german movies you can also find on astro..kirana i think..other than that youtube i guess..

sully86 said...

Nabil: Yup, i love the pops songs and in the telenovelas i love the cliffhangers...

HanaBella said...

Minat gila dengan spanish telenovela.. Ingatkan hana sorang je suka.. hukhuk becoz rata2 member sume duk gila cite korea. Sekarang tv3 dah kurang paparkan telenovela yg best. pastu duk tayang cite korea kul 2. sedey..

Paling bez opcoz la cite MISS TRES HERMANES(sekarang diulang tayang kt ntv7 kul 11, mon-fri), ROSALINDA (waaaaaaaa hensemnya fernando jose), LA SUPADORAc(homaigod, minat gila dengan heroinnya) , JUANA MIRACLE, YO SO BETTY LA FEA (minah ni cun banggat)and ada beberapa tajuk lag tp dah lupa. Time balik sekolah dlu, suka tgk yang main kt tv2 and tv3.

btw, kalau u perasan i letak blog header i LADY BARBELLA VOICE.. becoz i really addict to spanish telenovela.. luv the name BARBELLA.

Nabila.. kindly please let me know if there is a hot spanish telenovela yang femes amos kat sana ek. Becoz tv kat M'sia sekarang jarang dh naik mainkan telenovela tu sume, so, hana tak tau nak upload cite yang mana satu bez. hukhuk.
