  1. ¡Hola!

    I’m Marylou, one of Radio Lingua’s Community Managers (along with Katie and Ellie). If you feel like practising what you’ve learnt in this episode, you can head over to the Coffee Break Spanish Facebook Page, where we’ve set up some little language challenges on the discussions board, as well as conversations about different topics, including cinema and travel. Click on the link to practise your Spanish or if you simply wanted to say hi and introduce yourself! Oh, and clicking on “Marylou – Community Manager” will take you directly to our Facebook Page!

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

  2. I use CBS every day during my train ride and from to work in Japan. Any chance of a list of what each lessonon is about to save abit of time. Great stuff keep it coming

  3. hi – they guy from Seville does not guess 12-0 or 13-0, he guesses 2-0 or 3-0
    i also live in andalucía and even the locals get mixed up with dos and doce, so it is an easy mistake to make – although as he was talking about a football score, it was obvious it was 2 or 3

  4. I left this site temporarily to explore other “learn spanish” sites. I was frustrated but didn’t know why (I don’t think it’s because I’m 58 years old). Then I came back to “coffee break” and I realized why: You guys have the BEST site and this episode is an example of that. Gracias to both Mark and Kara (and maybe especially Kara w/ her delightful accent!)

  6. Hi,

    What does Mark say about Kara’s exams right at the beginning of the episode? Something that sounds like “tus examenes ya sin a caballo verdad?” 🙁
