Improvement suggestion - listening exercises

Hi! Haven't been here in a while, now trying to improve my listening comprehension again. So I've been thinking:

Listening comprehension in Peninsular Spanish seems to be different from the Latin American variants, at least I, personally, struggle to understand some of them more than others. As I've seen that there's a whopping 770 items on the listening comprehension list, do you happen to have lessons that have some degree of specialization regarding the variant spoken in the lesson? If no, I think this would be an interesting feature. If yes, then being able to filter by that would be awesome. (And I understand that this would be a major task given the number of variants, but I thought I might still ask).

Hope you have a great weekend!

Hola Gabor

Thanks for your comment.

With regards to "dictations", we are now starting to record some of them with Latin American voices, so you will definitely find more of these (gradually). 

You can still practise your listening skills (reading the transcript or not looking at it) with our bilingual texts; some of them are focused on a topic that is specific to a country in Latin America and they are recorded by different Latin American voices. 

Here are some of them: 

La semana santa en Guatemala (A1)

Ciudadanía española: la experiencia de María Virginia (A2)

En la Feria Nacional de San Marcos (B1)

Your filtering idea is a good one, so I will pass this on to the team as a suggestion. 

Gracias y saludos
