A Nice changement in learning

I’m Gerda from the Netherlands and I’m learning Spanish for the first time since last August , because I have a son in law from Spain. The podcast is a nice way to test My progress in learning. The English intermezzo’s are nice because otherwise A story during half an hour would be just too much.
