La Leyenda de los Cadejos
This third season of Simple Stories in Spanish is focusing on legends. In Central America, large dogs roam the mountains. They are los Cadejos. Legend says God created white dogs to protect humans. Not to be outdone, the devil created black dogs to terrorize humans. In either case, cadejos appear when they are most needed, to either do good or harm depending on the person. This legend is told in both the present and past tenses. Repeated words include “protege” (protect), “aparece” (appear), “defiende” (defend), “atacar” (attack), and “cachorro” (puppy). 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!
