Calvin and Hobbes en español Posted by on Jul 24, 2013 in Spanish Culture

I love comic strips and Calvin and Hobbes is one of my favorites!

I “liked” their Spanish page on Facebook and “borrowed” one in Spanish to share with you guys, so enjoy!


English translation

Calvin: Want to hear a joke?
Hobbes: Sure!
Calvin: OK, this guy goes into a bar. No, wait, he doesn’t do that yet. Or maybe it’s a grocery store. OK, it doesn’t matter. Let’s say it’s a bar. He’s somewhere in the vicinity of a bar, right?
Calvin: So anyway, there’s this dog and he says something odd, I don’t remember, but this other guy says, um, well, I forget, but it was funny.
Hobbes: I’ll try to imagine it.
Calvin: Yeah, you’ll really laugh.

Reading comics is a good way to improve your Spanish so why not have some fun and learn at the same time?!

    Love this! Calvin and Hobbes has always been my favourite comic. I don’t know why I never thought of looking for it in Spanish…
