      Hi Patricia. Coffee Break English for Spanish speakers is not something we have available (yet)! Hopefully we’ll be able to add it in the future.

    Mark and Cara,

    My little group on Torronto Island is LOVING your Spanish language learning podcasts. In our weekly sessions, we combine live lessons (by me) with review and teaching by you, and lots of music with the lyrics printed out and videos to watch.

    We appreciate your excellent method, your warm voice, and your great accents. (I learned Italian with you a few years ago on My Daily Phrase Italian.) Tante grazie, muchas gracias et merci beaucoup!

    Love the program! I purchased a membership, but then realized it was also available on the playstore as an App.

    Is there any manner in which I can also use the Droid App?

    I know I can download the files to my device, I find the App more convenient.

    Thanks and keep up the great work!
