      This is pretty damn good! With concentracion, one actually learns. This is just like being in a real class.

      Would “vote” for you on Podcast Alley if I could find a way to do it. None of their pages seem to offer an opportunity to do so.

      Wonderful! Estupendo! Fantastico!

      Is there anyway I can download the free podcasts (all 4 seasons), in one bulk download?

        If you subscribe to the podcasts in most podcast apps you should be able to “get all”. This varies from app to app. Hope that helps.

      I purchased Coffee Break Spanish through the app store on my iPhone. I would also like to listen to the podcasts over my computer. I purchased the bundled version of Season 1 and 2. Will I need to purchase Coffee Break Spanish for my computer if I wish to listen to the lessons over my laptop?

      Thank you!

        Hi Ruth. Apologies for the late reply. Unfortunately the app you published has not been created by us: a developer is illegally using our content to publish an unauthorised app and is selling access to the content without our permission. We would recommend that you contact Apple to request a refund for this in-app purchase. We have been through the legal process with Apple five times already to ask them to remove the content but the developer simply reposts the app under a different name. In order to access the content on our site you would need to purchase directly from us. Sorry for the inconvenience.

      Hi Mark, I’m just wondering are these sessions all payable? I was at a Spanish input tonight where you were one of the speakers but no cost was mentioned….maybe I never picked up on the cost so apologies.
      Thanks lyndsey

        Hi Lyndsey. The Coffee Break Spanish free lessons can be found here on the website and on Apple Podcasts. The paid element includes videos, bonus audio and lesson notes and is available on our Coffee Break Academy site. Hope that helps.
