La leyenda de Iztaccíhuatl y Popocatépetl - updated
This seventh season of Simple Stories in Spanish is updating some of my favorite episodes. Today’s remake is from Season 3, episode 2. Outside of Mexico City there are two volcanoes. One is a dormant volcano called Iztaccíhuatl, a name that means “white woman”. The other is the very active Popocatépetl, which means “smoking mountain.” Legend says these two volcanoes are star-crossed lovers that couldn’t be together in life.
This story is written mostly in the past tense and includes dialogue. Repeated words and phrases include “guerrero” (warrior), “cacique” (tribal chief), “luchar” (to fight), “sonrisa” (smile), and “celoso” (jealous). No matter where you are in your language journey, stories will help you on your way.
