This free audio lesson is all about holidays in Spanish. Find out the Spanish word for holiday and what the main Spanish holidays are!
Many of the holidays that we celebrate and look forward to in English speaking countries are also part of the cultural life of Spanish speaking countries.
If you would like to ask someone what they have planned for a certain holiday you can do so by asking, ¿Cuáles son tus planes para _______? Being able to talk about plans helps you to make arrangements with another person and talk socially about an event. Why not have a try making questions using the above language structure with the holidays in Spanish vocabulary here?
