This is the first time Iíve listened to Letizia in awhile. Even though I donít understand Spanish, Iíve always been impressed by how articulate and intelligent she seems. Her English is much better than the last time I heard her speak English!

Does anyone know if she had intensive English tutoring? It is certainly more difficult to learn a new language as an adult!

The queen improvised her speech and also remembered the murdered girls of Tenerife and Seville. Bravo

I love listening to Queen Letizia's speeches.
In this speech she spoke of the murdered girls in Tenerife and Seville, a very sad event.

Yes it is. Letizia is clear and objective in her speeches. In this one she even said a few words in English. I believe the speeches are written by her, although obviously someone can advise her.
She is a very intelligent woman, although at times she is not well understood.

Apparently she writes everything, since it is not an official speech that the government has to review, although the previous queens may not have had the ability to make their own speeches, Queen Letizia does have that quality.
In fact, she today she was not an organized intervention, but she did a short spontaneous speech and she is a wonderful speaker; she has the ability to synthesize and improvise anything. She is fabulous.

Wasn't she a journalist/news-speaker before her marriage? That would explain her ability to speak and write well.

Great speech. All the more impressive that it was not planned.

You say that because you do not know the capacity and oratory of some Spanish journalists.:jajaja::jajaja:
She's just good at her public speaking and quick at her responses. She masters the language and that is why she could be a great journalist, not the other way around.
The value is not being trained as a journalist, but that she did it because she had great qualities, and that is why she was awarded twice when she was so young

In fact, I sometimes wonder if she won't miss her life as a journalist and HER SALARY, because if she were still an anchor or special envoy, she would be much older than she is now. She was the host of the main newscast of the Spanish public television network. She didn't get it by chance.
