Abstract The hustle and bustle of Spain's capital is a great setting for picking up key Spanish words, phrases, and expressions. After all, communication is an indispensable part of the quest for success in the big city, whether on the streets or in an office building. This program helps Spanish-language learners discuss and describe occupations, work habits, and daily routines as it looks at life in Madrid-in particular, a day in the lives of a taxi driver, a radio announcer, and a journalist. As they absorb the video's language lessons, viewers will also discover that financial security is just as elusive in Spain as it is in the United States!
