Programa de Juegos: “Ahora Caigo” y “Atrapa un Millón”

1
 

            Una de las cosas que más me gusta hacer aquí en España es ver los programas de juegos o concursos, especialmente “Ahora Caigo” y “Atrapa un Millón”. Ambos son programas de preguntas de tipo trivial, de conocimientos generales, de la cultura española, de la ciencia, las matemáticas, animales, etc. La estructura de “Ahora Caigo” es que hay un concursante principal que tiene que ganar a todos los demás concursantes y van ganando dinero con cada persona que ganan. ¡Los que pierden, se caen! El presentador de “Ahora Caigo” es muy gracioso y a mi mamá española le encanta. Siempre les engaña a las personas antes de caerse por hablarles y distraerles. En el programa “Atrapa un Millón” hay dos concursantes que juegan como un equipo. Al principio del programa tienen 100.000 euros y van contestando preguntas que tienen cuatro opciones y ponen el dinero que quieren en la respuesta que creen que es la correcta. Cuando responden mal, pierden su dinero. Hay que contestar a ocho preguntas y lo que tienen al final de las ocho preguntas es lo que ganan. Me encanta ver estos dos programas porque aprendo mucho y es una manera muy buena de practicar mi comprensión de español.

            One of my favorite things to do here in Spain is watch the game shows, especially “Ahora Caigo” and “Atrapa un Millon.” Both shows are trivia shows, with questions about general knowledge, Spanish culture, science, mathematics, animals, etc. The structure of “Ahora Caigo” is that there is one main contestant who has to beat all of the other contestants and they go along winning money with each contestant that they beat. The ones that lose, fall! The host is really funny and my Spanish mom loves him. He always tricks the people before they fall by talking to them and distracting them. On the show “Atrapa un Millon” there are two contestants who play as a team. At the beginning of the show, they have 100,000 Euros and they answer question that have four options and they put money on the answers that they think are correct. When they get the answer wrong, they lose their money. Throughout the show they have to answer eight questions and the money they have left at the end of the eight questions is what they win. I love watching these shows because I learn a lot and it’s a good way to practice my Spanish comprehension.
