Drama, drama drama. There’s romance, twins separated at birth, slaps, betrayal and more. There is more melodrama than you can imagine, which makes it the perfect, high-interest tool to learn Spanish. They originated in Latin America, and are abundant all over the Americas. With more Spanish-speakers in the United States than in Spain, there are plenty that are subtitled in English. More advanced?
