Another Paco

You already know Paco, the university teacher. Now let me tell you about another Paco I hold in high esteem who, unfortunately, I never met.

Paco Martínez Soria was a popular comic actor in Spain until his death in 1982. He starred in many memorable films, which are still being shown on TV to this day.

The link below (I can't get the video player to work with this particular video) will take you to a funny clip from one of his films - Hay que Educar a Papá (We Have to Educate Dad) - in which Paco's character is trying to learn English.

Please note that this video is not meant to ridicule anyone or cause offence. It simply shows that learning a foreign language, especially at the beginning, involves making lots of mistakes in all areas before you gradually improve.

Watch the video and you'll see what an endearing actor he was. If Paco Martínez Soria can learn English, you can too!
