      Hmm not sure why she is confused about c pronunciation in “cerca”. Same as English isn’t it??? e.g. circle, car, cinema, cell.

      • rudy

        yeah i know what u mean

      • Rebecca Burgener

        I think she’s playing the part of pupil, trying to ask any question a student might ask.

      • Julie Hildbold

        No it’s not at all the same – cerca (therca) is not like the c in circle.

        • Molly

          As Mark has said many times, it depends on if you’re speaking continental Spanish or Latin American Spanish.
          In Latin American Spanish the c in cerca makes the exact same sound as the c in circle,

      Where to find the vedio dialogue material? Only by listening without the lines, it is difficult to catch.

      We forgot to add the words of the song before… so here they are!

      ‘En la ciudad donde vivo yo, hay muchas cosas interesantes,
      Hay un cine y una catedral y hay diecinueve restaurantes.

      En la ciudad donde vivo yo, hay muchas cosas interesantes,
      Hay un bar y un centro comercial y hay diecinueve restaurantes.

      En la ciudad donde vivo yo, hay muchas cosas interesantes,
      Hay una oficina de turismo y hay diecinueve restaurantes.’

      Enjoy singing along!

      I heard this podcast before Christmas and find the song so helpful in remembering words. I realise the podcasts are all made for about the next two years as I am behind, but I do hope there are more songs to come!
