One of my favorite shows on Netflix is the television series "Celia". I absolutely adore Jeimy Osorio, the actress who plays young Celia in the part of the series.
I have found this series to be particularly engaging for both my high school and college students, and have even blogged about it before here. I have now screened the series for both my students in Baltimore and my students and Portland, to rave reviews!
If you are looking for an authentic learning tool to aid your student's learning, look no further than this fantastic series. The episode guide for Celia: Episode 1 is free - take a look here! And you can stream "Celia" for free on Netflix.
Maybe even throw in a song warm-up of "La vida es un carnaval" for February (find the resource here) to enhance your lesson plan. Just in time for carnaval at the end of the month!
I have just completed and posted Celia on Netflix: Episode 5. In this episode, Celia finally gets to meet and talk to the "maestro" of La Sonora, Rogelio. In the most exciting episode yet, it seems that Celia's dreams are on their way to becoming a reality. Take a look at the resource for Episode 5 here.
I hope you enjoy the series
as much as my students and I have!
