Season 2 – Lesson 40 – Coffee Break Spanish

Coming up in this lesson:

It’s the end of an era: the final episode of Coffee Break Spanish. In the final lesson of Season 2, it’s time for las despedidas, the goodbyes. Andrew will be returning to England and bidding farewell to María-José, and Mark and Kara will also be saying adiós to the listeners of Coffee Break Spanish. In the coming weeks we’ll be explaining what’s next from Radio Lingua for Spanish learners. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this final episode of our show.

Please note that lesson 40 of Season 2 was originally known as lesson 240 of Coffee Break Spanish. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.

    Paul Buffoni , Sir , you obviously have NOT listened to every episode up until number 80 otherwise you would know that that was indeed the very last episode of Coffee Break Spanish!

    It’s the first time I’m learning Spanish, I’ve been listening to CoffeeBreak Spanish for only two weeks, the 80 episodes, while exercising, walking back from home or to the supermarket, and while eating. I’m French, living in France, and I only learn Spanish in my spare time.

    And now I know almost all the tenses and verbs, basic grammar and vocabulary !

    Although I learn languages very easily, I didn’t expect this !

    Thank you
