BBC Worldwide Ltd
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
This program covers how to greet friends, introduce oneself to strangers, talk about where one comes from, and tell what one does for a living. A whirlwind tour of Spain reveals the country's regional diversity, while a visit to Alcoy during the Moors and Christians festival-a lavish event involving parades, mock battles, and fireworks-spotlights one of Spain's most popular fiestas.
