Trouble with understanding accent

I had much trouble with the accent of the man who was dictating...  He says "s" with "th" and spoke very quickly....Very difficult to understand. 


We don't use "th" here or "vosotros"...so it's very different... But the man spoke very quickly with the words intertwined.

Hola Lindy,

the narrator is using a very standard accent from Spain and the speed is adapted to a C1 exercise. I understand that if where you are living/learning Spanish is a Latin American country, the accent is different, especially with "s" and "c", but Kwiziq is currently focused on Peninsular Spanish. There are other exercises, e.g. videos, with different accents and occasionally Latin American or Andalusian accents, that we have used, to show a variety. 

Kind regards,

Inma
