    I loved every bit of this. My Spanish learning has always been at a strange place of knowing an intermediate amount. I say I know enough to get in trouble and get back out. I am great at reading, but not listening and speaking. This was perfect.

    • Laura:

      @Jolanda Scott Thank you so much for your comment Jolanda! It’s great to hear that you are enjoying the course. There are lots of other similar listening comprehension exercises in the previous advanced listening practice course that you will like too. Looking forward to hearing how you get on with other audios. Enjoy your Spanish! laura
