Mi Vida Loca Study Guide, Episodes 1 - 22
“Mi Vida Loca” - the FUN, FREE interactive BBC drama for Spanish beginners! Here are the four-part study guides for ALL 22 episodes.

I have created these Study Guides to get the most out of Mi Vida Loca with 4 fun activities per episode: (1) follow-along challenge, (2) vocabulary, (3) grammar, and (4) ‘Be Creative!’

For example, the four sections in the Study Guide to ‘Un Amigo’, Mi Vida Loca, Episode 2 are:
‘DID YOU CATCH THAT?’ - True/False questions about events in a restaurant
‘TEST YOUR VOCAB!’ - review more daily phrases and use cognates
‘A LITTLE GRAMMAR’ - practice using ‘un’ and ‘una’
‘BE CREATIVE!’ - create a pirate personality!

FREE! Download the Study Guide to Episode 1 for FREE to see if it will work for you! (Search "hilltej" to find it quickly.)

The drama and guides can be used:
- as fun, comprehensible homework for Spanish 1
- as the basis for a Spanish 1 curriculum, using, for example, my Mi Vida Loca Lesson plans.
- as Extra Credit or Review for 1st or 2nd year students (use all 4 sections, or pick 2)
- for individual or enrichment courses.

Great for homeschool! Great for adult ed!


“Mi Vida Loca” is a FANTASTIC interactive BBC drama series for Beginning Spanish learners! As your students follow Merche, an investigative reporter, through a series of adventures in Spain, they are encouraged to use the Spanish they know to say what they need to say - and gradually build a practical vocabulary and grammar base. Each of the 22 episodes contains a 10 - 15 minute cliffhanger drama, followed by a little vocabulary and grammar practice. Here is a list of the main topics covered over the course of the 22 episodes:

Vocabulary covered includes:
daily phrases
getting directions
things said in a restaurant
numbers to 1000
bus and attraction schedules
town buildings
fruits and vegetables
‘Getting to know you’ conversation
adjectives to describe people
time, months and days of the week
house words

Grammar covered includes:
‘ser’, present tense
articles and plurals
‘ser’ vs. ‘estar’
present tense -ar, -er, -ir regular verbs
ésta, éstas
present perfect tense.

I use ‘Mi Vida Loca’ with these study guides as the basis for my Beginning Spanish class, so I created the guides with two helpful features;
1. Apart from the color words, each guide assumes no knowledge other than the vocabulary/grammar so far introduced,
2. Pictures add variety and fun to each guide!
