Asi Asi Just Like That. Spanish/English Bilingual TV. Test your skills!

*For this month's free courses see the previous post*

Asi Asi...Just Like That is like no other TV Show that you have ever seen! Bilingual? Then go on the road with Rocio and Lisa as they bring exciting stories, interesting people, and culture clashes to your TV! Your language skills will be put to the test! It's innovative...it's new....it's unique! Cultural appreciation and language exploration have never been so much fun.
See www.asiasi.tv for more!

This show is produced in Arkansas as a forum in which to foster understanding, respect and admiration between Hispanic and Anglo (my term not theirs) cultures. I just found this episode I think it's really engaging video and another great way to improve language skills.
