      There was a word I did not understand. It was being allergic to something like las “nuesas” near time 7:25. Thank you for your programs. I am enjoying them.

      Nueces = nuts

      Very useful and practical lesson. It would have been useful to include names for cutlery in common use when eating.

      I’ve taken Spanish in high school, listened to Pimsleur Spanish lessons, taken Spanish lessons and generally tried to learn on my own. Never has anyone explained the difference between the words soy and estoy. Thank you.

      My learning speed is slowing down as there are many new words to study. But I am focusing on each and every lessons. Los lecciones son un poco deficil para mi. Pero estoy felix con Coffee Break Spanish. 😛 Gracias.

      I listen to Coffee Break Spanish when I go for a run or am relaxing at home. I listen to each lesson at least twice and write down the sentences I learn. I then go back after four or five lessons and revise them all. My Dad is also learning and is now on Showtime Spanish but I hope to catch him up really soon!!! Muchas Gracias para todos, Coffee Break Spanish!

      I have a question about the difference between soy and estoy. Estoy is used for temporary things, but in podcast 7 you say: “estoy jubilado”, I am retired. This seems to be a permanent thing to me. Why isn’t soy used in this case?

      Hi. Many thanks for a great resource. In this lesson I can’t work out what Kara says in Spanish one minute from the end. Could you help me out please?
