    Gracias Nodira y Marie!

    Lynda – sorry, my mistake. Now they should just start to download as soon as you click on them – or you could try right-clicking and choosing ‘save link as’ – you don’t need a password at all to get these now!


    Wonderful tips from two very hard-working altruistic people. Keep up the good work and many thanks; you are certainly improving my Spanish by leaps and bounds.

    Warmest wishes and thanks,

    Thanks, Ben – another great batch of useful information.

    But there’s just one problem with these “phrases to make you sound like a real Spaniard” – you come out with one with studied nonchalance in a bar, and everybody immediately assumes you can speak perfect Spanish, and comes back in high-speed Andaluz (in my case)!

    Another case for “Hmmm, si, vale, vale…”!

    I especially enjoyed the report on how not to look like a tourist in Spain–I realize that most of your experience is with Spain, but could you do a similar one on avoiding basic ‘gringo’ mistakes in Latin America or something like that? Just an idea, and I suspect most of your readers are intending to use their Spanish in Latin America as opposed to Spain, so I think there would be a lot of interest.

  7. Ben Post author

    John – Thanks for the great comment!
    Phil – That is a risk yes, but sooner or later you’ll be chatting fluently back to them too!
    Spanish Andy – We’ll certainly consider that for the future, thanks for the comment and idea.

  8. Mitch

    Ben, Marina,
    Thanks for making these all available for download. Regarding Spanish Andy’s comment about a Latin American version… I’m sure it would be a great resource for those who want it, but personally I found that the majority of Spanish-learning resources already cover on the Latin American market. It’s the Madrid real-world Spanish that I found the hardest to find until I discovered Notes In Spanish. Please keep up the good work!

  9. Ben

    Thanks Mitch, you are right, there is so much South American Spanish material out there that I’m pretty sure we’ll stick to the Spanish from Spain. In the end it is all very interchangeable as well!
