Coffee Break Spanish Magazine Episode 104

This week’s episode of the Coffee Break Spanish is a slightly spooky Hallowe’en episode. In this edition:

  • Alba asks the macabre question ¿Cuál es tu peor pesadilla?;
  • Laura introduces the expression me he levantado con el pie izquierdo, meaning “to get out of the wrong side of the bed”;
  • and JP and Nahyeli help listener Kelly understand the differences between the verbs querer and amar?

    Why is there no link to download the podcast, as there was for the first three podcasts? I want to be able to listen to the podcast when I’m away from my computer. I hope this is just a momentary glitch rather than a change in policy.

    Oops, sorry, I see the link is there. In the past, there were two links, one for the free podcast, and one, I think, for premium materials. I thought the link you provided this week was for the premium materials, but it’s not. My bad.

    Cyndi, the reason there were two links in the past is because the system we use places a link for every podcast series updated by a single post. Until last week we were posting the Coffee Break Spanish Magazine episodes in both the main Coffee Break Spanish feed and in the special Magazine feed. From now on the CBS feed will be back to the normal Word of the Day Review episodes, and the Magazine will continue to be published on only the CBS Magazine feed. Hope that makes sense. You’ll still be able to download the free episode from the website.

    Can you explain in more detail what is included withe lesson notes? This would be the first CBS series I got them for, so I don’t know much about them.

    Hi. In lesson 4 notes, there is a transcript which reads “no puedo para” and then there is a heading with the same three words. Mark translates this on the podcast as “I can’t stop” but I thought the transcript should spell “stop” in Spanish as “parar” or have I misunderstood?
