La Leyenda de la Mocuana
This third season of Simple Stories in Spanish is focusing on legends. In the mountains of Nicaragua, a young woman roams the mountains inviting young men to come see her treasure. Those who follow la Mocuana visit a cave full of gold before disappearing forever. Is la Mocuana evil, or just the victim of a broken heart? This legend repeats vocabulary such as “tesoro” (treasure), “oro” (gold), “se enamora” (falls in love), “tiene miedo” (is scared), and “cueva” (cave). 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!
