Vista previa del libro

El lector podrá apreciar –paso a paso– las visitas canónicas que Thiel realizó a cada una de las parroquias, iglesias filiales, ermitas y oratorios del país, entre 1880 y 1901, así como 196 documentos que guardan relación con las visitas. Durante sus viajes, al subir las montañas, cruzar los ríos, dormir a la intemperie y ejercer su ministerio pastoral por todo el país –que recorrió cuatro veces– mostró su gran fortaleza física y espiritual.

Después de atravesar por primera vez el país, puso de manifiesto la riqueza de nuestras tierras y cómo deberían ser explotadas. Thiel llegó a ser una figura esencial para todos los fieles, centenares de personas acudían a saludar a su pastor, quien los acogía con toda amabilidad.

A lo largo del texto, figuran interesantes relatos, como su captura en el Fuerte de San Carlos, en Nicaragua, por ser “un General disfrazado de Obispo”; el sermón en un cementerio ante 4.000 fieles, subido en una mesa para que lo pudieran oír; el viaje en un tren de carga encima del carro de la leña; el haber usado los calzoncillos y la camisa de un indígena de Talamanca y muchas anécdotas más.

Can you Speak Spanish? How long have you been studying Spanish? Between high school classes, college classes and you own efforts you could easily have a couple years already under your belt. During this time you have likely built up a good Spanish vocabulary, along with a basic understanding of Spanish verb conjugation. But can you speak Spanish?

Why is speaking Spanish so hard? Would you feel comfortable approaching a native Spanish speaker and starting a conversation? Why not? Why is it so hard to speak Spanish even after years of study?

Beginning high school and college Spanish classes, as well as most self study Spanish courses start off by teaching vocabulary and verb conjugation. You practice speaking, but the focus is on the individual word or phrase. Lists of words are memorized and tests are given on verb conjugation. So when it comes time to speak, the words and phrases are separate in your mind. It becomes a matter of trying to pull all the pieces together and form them all into a sensible sentence, not just speaking.

The key to becoming more comfortable in speaking situations is to practice and learn the sentences as a whole, not in separate pieces. This way when you are trying to remember what to say, the whole sentence pops in your mind, not just one word. You will speak Spanish more correctly, more fluently and more confidently than ever before.

The Visual Link Spanish Course allows you to utilize this effective way of learning and practice speaking Spanish. In our FREE online demo lessons, you can see how we utilize these strategies to truly teach you to speak Spanish. You will be able to recall everything you learn and words will come into your mind as a complete sentence not separate individual words. You will already be on your way to speaking Spanish more fluently and more confidently.
