Season 2 – Lesson 24 – Coffee Break Spanish

Lesson 24 introduces a new tense: the perfect tense. This tense is used to talk about what you ‘have done’ and is very simple to use. Please note that lesson 24 of Season 2 was originally known as lesson 224 of Coffee Break Spanish. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.

  1. Just discovered your Coffee Break Spanish series. Really enjoy it. Thanks for presenting the learning in such a fun and easy to listen to environment. I’m a theology grad student who must pass a written spanish comprehension exam to finally get the degree and this is a great supplement to the overall endeavour! 🙂 Cheers to you for doing it and helping us!

  2. No podcast available on this one. I’d very much appreciate it as I don’t always have an internet connection when listening.

    Many thanks,

  3. Mark y Kara: Anybody posting a negative comment about CBS simply doesn’t understand how brilliant, measured and appropriate your approach is for the average learner. I started CBS on unit 1 back on June 20, 2010. I have been through every episode at least 3-4 times and have moved on to Show Time Spanish (which is very difficult for me) while I wait on the next unit release for CBS.

    It’s clear that Mark is an excellent, experienced teacher and Kara’s sweet laugh (and thick accent) makes me smile every day! Is Antonio still in the picture? 🙂

    Thank you for your excellent podcasts.

  4. I couldn’t find lessons to download after lesson 64. Is that all there is so far ? Are the subsequent lessons no longer free ? I’ve become addicted and need my fix of CBS !

  5. I’ve tried other courses but I’m learning much more from CBS. As others have commented I’d like to be able to download lesson 64 and any subsequent lessons as I listen on MP3 whenever I have the chance. Is this just a glitch in Radio Lingua’s system? Keep up the excellent work please.

  6. Hello, although lesson 65 has become downloadable today on iTunes, lesson 64 doesn’t seem to be available. Can you check?

  7. i have just discovered your website.i think it is a great learning tool,
