Improve your Spanish listening skills: The odyssey of the lost Colombian children

Improve your Spanish listening skills with this remarkable survival tale of four brave siblings lost deep in the Colombian jungle.

On May 1, 2023, a small airplane crashed in the Colombian jungle, the three adults died, but four kids -aged 13, 9, 4, and 1- survived. That was the beginning of a 40-day odyssey to survive the predators and natural dangers of the jungle while a search party composed of the army, shamans, and native guides relentlessly tried to locate them.

During those distressing weeks, Lesly, the eldest of the four siblings, used ancestral jungle survival skills she learned as a child, like recognizing poisonous plants and safe fruits and footpaths, to make shelters and keep her siblings fed until their rescue
