One Spanish speaker is sometimes too rapid

Some of these sentences, like "La iglesia está al lado del colegio", were spoken extremely fast. Spanish relies on a phonetic grammar rather than on timing to separate words, and this is very difficult for someone who hasn't even learned Spanish word grammar.

Probably said something like "Lai gle siae sta la do".

This is called "linking". It's not easy.

Hola Phil

There was something wrong with all the audios in that lesson.

They've been redone and they are slower now.

Gracias y saludos
