      Like listening to your podcasts and understand Spanish well… but didn’t catch David’s phrase about how he and Alba are going to celebrate St Valentine’s Day… ‘como yerman’ it sounded like… something Scottish and special?

      Many thanks.

        Hi Anne. The phrase is “como Dios manda” – literally “as God dictates” or “as God intends”. Hope this helps.

      I have a long way to go when it comes to learning Spanish. Right now, I’m still catching up with Arabic, wonder how much differences there are between them…
