      Mark, these lessons are superb! I live and work in Spain, in Valencia. A I teach English and French all day, the exposure to Spanish some days is minimal. Your “Subjunctive of the week” feature is sure to be superb for anyone studying the language from a B2ish level and up.
      Can you do something with idiomatic expressions for C1 / C2 level people? Keep up the good work and thank you.
