shoe repair



We took our Spanish classes to the streets a few years ago and recorded this video lesson in a small marketplace located in Miraflores, Lima. Our special guest is a shoe repairman who has been “re-using and recycling” long before these terms came into vogue. He is an expert at saving damaged shoes so the owners can stomp out a few more years of use.

Now, play the video and listen carefully.

Did you watch it all the way through? Did you catch the moment when Juan Carlos asks if he can borrow a pair of high-heeled shoes to wear home? Check out another lesson where Juan Carlos strikes up a conversation with a shoe shiner in Lima.

We hope you enjoyed the lesson and that you consider joining us at, where your online Spanish course is waiting for you!
