Spanish Hot Lemon in Hot Water...

An advert (anuncio) for the Spanish equivalent of 'Hot Lemon' cold and flu treatment (Frenadol Complex) has caused a bit of a controversy (polémica) over the last few days. Challenge you students to discover the reason for the row by watching the advert (link below).

And to give you a little bit of Spanish listening practice, I won't add the answer to this blog until next week...

Which is now - and the reason for the controversy is of course the note at the bottom of the screen after 14 seconds: 'Este medicamento puede producir somnolencia. Se recomienda no conducir...'


If you enjoyed this resource, you might like to read about my first year here in Spain as an immersion teacher of a class of Spanish primary children. Zen Kyu Maestro: An English Teacher´s Spanish Adventure is published as an eBook by Monday Books. There´s a free sample chapter available to download here: Zen Kyu Maestro
