      Excellent lessons. I travel a lot. With Coffee Break Spanish I’ve learned a new language. Thanks.

      Go to this link:

      Scroll down about 2/3 of the way down the page. The basic lessons are in the “free” column on the left. Right-click, save as…, and it should download to your computer.

      Notice that we’ve just introduced the Coffee Break Spanish Step by Step guide which lists every lesson, provides links to the blog post or the audio (for the not-yet-released lessons) and which explains what’s covered in each lesson too. Have a look here:

      hi – they guy from Seville does not guess 12-0 or 13-0, he guesses 2-0 or 3-0
      i also live in andalucía and even the locals get mixed up with dos and doce, so it is an easy mistake to make – although as he was talking about a football score, it was obvious it was 2 or 3

      muyyy muy muy bien

      I left this site temporarily to explore other “learn spanish” sites. I was frustrated but didn’t know why (I don’t think it’s because I’m 58 years old). Then I came back to “coffee break” and I realized why: You guys have the BEST site and this episode is an example of that. Gracias to both Mark and Kara (and maybe especially Kara w/ her delightful accent!)

      What does Mark say about Kara’s exams right at the beginning of the episode? Something that sounds like “tus examenes ya sin a caballo verdad?” 🙁

      • radiolingua radiolingua

        Mark says “tus exámenes ya se han acabado” – your exams have finished. Hope that helps.
