Arrow World AIDS Day

Size:  1.9 KB Since today is World AIDS Day, I thought I'd post this informative video about VIH/SIDA (in Spanish). Watch it to practice your listening comprehension, or just to learn. Side note-- where do you think the people in the video are from based on their accent? Do they use any regional vocabulary? You can also take this quiz (also in Spanish) about AIDS.

I've never been there, but I guess at either Mexico or Venezuela. My third choice is anywhere else in South America. If it's Spain I'm going to drown myself.

I'm pretty sure it's neither a Spanish nor Mexican accent. So I think you're safe. (stay away from the swimming pool)

It's an accent rather easy to identify once one has seen a few South American telenovelas...

Yes, it's true. And it's not from Spain. We don't say "ve" but "uve"

My guess is Venezuela (from movies filmed there), although the accent is very close to the Spanish I learned in Central America (a cross between the castellano of Honduras and Nicaragua).

By the way, the quiz had some hiccups. I answered all but one question correctly, but it said I missed several.
