La celebración de la Feria de las Flores

This fourth season of Simple Stories in Spanish is focusing on celebrations. Medellín, Colombia is already a vibrant city, but somehow it becomes even more vibrant and lively during “La Feria de las Flores”. The entire city is decorated by carnations, lilies, orchids, roses and more as the Department of Antioquia, of which Medellín is the capital, celebrates one of its largest exports with flower displays, flower decorations, and a giant flower parade. This legend is told in the both the present and past tenses. Repeated words and phrases include “desfile” (parade), “flores” (flowers), “campo” (countryside), “atrae” (attracts), “lleva” (carries), “arreglo” (arrangement), and “silleta” (a wooden structure, like a chair with its legs cut off, that was strapped to a person’s back and used to transport people and goods from the country to the city). No matter where you are in your language journey, stories will help you on your way. You can find a transcript of the story and read along at Happy listening! ¡Muchas gracias por escuchar!
