La Leyenda de La Ciguapa
This third season of Simple Stories in Spanish is focusing on legends. A woman roams the mountains of la República Dominicana. She is not like other women. She is a protector of nature. Many have tried to trap her, but she is difficult to find because her feet are backwards and lead you in the wrong direction. This woman is a “Ciguapa”. She hypnotizes men with her dark eyes and beauty and leads them to their death. This legend is told in the present tense. Repeated words include “protege” (protects), “naturaleza” (nature), “bosque” (forest), and “tiene miedo” (fears/is scared). 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 smalltownspanishteacher.com. Happy listening!
