    Muchas Gracias. Escuchaba de todos sus podcasts advanced, pero de este resumen de por, por podcast inspired beginners, me aprovecho en una gran manera. Es claro, facil para entender, y una de las mejores maneras para aprender un tema mas complicada para mi.

    Excellent ways to teach Spanish – But can the price be revised to make way to a lot many like us – specially the intermediate lessons- will you kindly think over it

    Hi Tapan, we recently implemented a large price drop to make up for terrible worldwide currency and fuel price problems that affect us all. We think the price is now unbeatable considering the quantity of materials in each pack, and still provide all the podcast audio for free for those that are unable to get the worksheets. Ben

    Ben y Marina gracias por vuestro podcast. Me habeis ayudado mucho a comprender ‘por’ muchas gracias. Espero que pasasteis muy bien vuestras vaciones! Voy a mallorca en septiembre con mi novia, mi hijo, mis abuelos y mi prima. Que ilusion! Espero que puedo hablar todo en espanol. Estare muy contento si puedo! adios.

    I am confused about using ” estar por ” + infinitive. I have seen this to mean ” about to ” as in the following.

    Estoy por comer.
    “I am about to eat”

    Seguramente ella está por llegar.
    “Surely she is about to arrive”

    I understand “tener ganas de” to mean “to feel like”.
    Can you help me understand this a little better?
    Thank you

    “Estar + por + infinitive” means to be in favor of. “Estar + para + infin.” means to be about to do something.

    Ben y Marina gracias por vuestro podcast. Me habéis ayudado mucho a comprender ‘por’ y ‘para’ . Llevo 10 anos estudiando el español hasta el nivel ‘A’ y quiero decir que el podcast para ‘Beginners’ ha hecho muy claro este asunto. Estuvimos en Madrid el mayo pasado, mi marido y yo, para visitar amigos madrileños. Afortunadamente la temperatura no habí­a subido más que 27 grados, así­ que podí­amos andar y explorar la ciudad cómodamente.
    Estoy loca por tus podcasts.

    Hola. Yo empecé a estudiar por las lecciones intermadiate y advanced, pero para entender mejor la gramática, las construcciones verbales, tengo que estudiar las lecciones para beginners, y sin perceber estoy mejorando mucho mi vocabulário.

    Muchas gracias, a Ben y Marina por sus esfuerzos.

    I am really enjoying your podcasts, and find listening to Marina speak english is helpful in understanding how the spanish and english languages are constructed. Can’t help but want to tell Marina that we say ‘want to’ pronouncing both ‘t’s, and that we do not say “wan na”.

  13. Jane

    i say wanna! pronouncing every single t or g ending often ends up sounding stilted in english – or maybe that’s my australianisms. love the podcasts!

  14. Melanie Wellner

    Watch out, Jane, Marina’s father will get mad at you if you drop your endings. I love the podcasts even listen to them throughout the night.


  15. Andy

    these podcasts are a credit to you Ben y Marina.
    I haven’t yet brought the Worksheets but I am picking up a lot more spanish out just by listening…would be nice to know the full meaning to (has) or (as)… as in que grupos has visto indirecto? haven’t seen this word in the text books.
    thanks again
