  1. i have a question in the days of the week… why do u say sabado as (savadoh) and viernes as (biernehss)…is the b to be pronounced as v and the v 2 be pronounced as b?

  2. Hola Mark Y Kara, me llamo Juan, Soy de Portsmouth. Tengo dieciocho anos, y me encanta estas lecciones. Pienso, hoy es martes, :D. Gracias mucho y asta pronto.

  3. Hello Marc and Kara,

    I am German and I learn Spanish. I found your lessons on amonzon for my kindle. The lessons are really helpful and very good. It’s perfect to practise English and Spanisch at the same time and I thank you very much that you podcast the lessons also on your webside. Your are doing a perfect job.

  4. Something important about Spanish is that we generally don’t have a clear difference between the b sound and the v sound. What you will find is that the b sound (like in sabado) tends to be so soft that we don’t even close our lips when saying it.

  5. hola todo

    Yo soy Frances, é y trabaro en Madrid, mi encanta apprendo espanom con coffe break.

    Yo pienso que esta muy agradable por comprender.

    Muchas gracias Mark and Cara.

    Hasta pronto
