La celebración de Carnaval en la República Dominicana

This fourth season of Simple Stories in Spanish is focusing on celebrations. Carnaval is a popular celebration throughout Latin America. Each country has its own special way to showcase their local culture during this multi-day party of food, music, and dancing. Carnaval originated as a three day party before Lent, but has since evolved into vibrant celebrations of culture. In the Dominican Republic, Carnaval lasts an entire month with each town giving it its own twist. This legend is told in the both the present and past tenses. Repeated words and phrases include “desfile” (parade),“disfraz” (costume), “máscara” (mask) and “diablo” (devil). No matter where you are in your language journey, stories will help you on your way.
