Pocoyó with subtitles in English & Spanish

Browsing through my Facebook statuses, I saw a post by Transparent Spanish with a link to a Pocoyó episode with subtitles in English and Spanish.

Personally, I think I would rather have it with just Spanish subtitles or no subtitles, but for beginners, I think these videos would be helpful. After watching them a few times, you then could search for the episodes without any subtitles and see how much you understand.

Where to go:
YouTube channel with subtitled Pocoyó episodes
Transparent Spanish Facebook Page
Official Pocoyó Page

Pocoyó is so cute! This is the first I've seen of him!

And I agree with you about the subtitles. However, for beginners, I suggest they pause at each different subtitle so that they can read the Spanish version too.

I believe that if you are reading in English you can't possible be listening in Spanish, so basically you're wasting your time if that's what you're doing to learn Spanish.

Thank you for sharing! Too cute!

My students absolutely love Pocoyo in Spanish! I didn't even bother to look for subtitles and just showed them in Spanish. I like your idea of showing w/o subtitles and then with subtitles to see how much they have comprehended. Thanks for the tip!

I watched the video and it is so lovely!!

Thanks for sharing.
frankly I liked the idea of both languages subtitles but sometimes the text was quite long and disappearing too fast:)
