FAMILY ALBUM USA

Post  rubiadepocitos on Fri Jun 06, 2008 1:52 am

I used to watch this series in Argentina in the early nineties. I can't believe I found them!!!
Veía esta serie en Argentina a principios de los noventa. No puedo creer que la encontré!!!




It's an amazing way to learn the English Language, the way Americans live, and hear the New York Accent (correct me if I'm wrong)
Es una forma bárbara de aprender el idioma inglés, como viven los norteamericanos, y escuchar el acento newyorkino, (corrijanme si me equivoco)

It would be interesting for English speaker as well.


Voy a publicar todos los capítulos para que los disfruten y aprendan más inglés.

Cariños sunny
