We’ve just added some brand new, authentic Spanish videos to our website! These videos fall under the Home and Health category.

Lots and lots of you have told us how much you and your students enjoy the different accents showcased in our videos, and how beneficial exposure to this variety can be in the classroom. Well, we thought it was time to introduce a brand new accent for all of the Spanish speakers out there, so off we went to do some filming in Mexico City!

In case you missed them, we’ve already uploaded some Mexican videos in the Education and Work and Freetime and Leisure categories.

We’ve organised the videos by topic below – all you need to do is type the video ID into your thisislanguage.com search bar!
