beginner / Friday Treat / Mexico / present progressive

The Friday Treat is an “easy” Vine in with minimal or no dialogue, that you can understand and enjoy without an explanation.  

Today’s Friday Treat is by Nath Campos from Mexico City (who was also featured in an earlier lesson).

The caption is: mujeres en Instagram (women/girls on Instagram).

The dialogue is: “aquí despertando” = “here waking up”

It’s poking fun at all the Instagram selfies with hashtags like #justwokeup.

And here is your Weekly Review from Monday and Wednesday lessons this week.  Try saying the Spanish words out loud to yourself.
