Welcome to the second episode of Notes in Spanish Conversations! Our Brand-New Weekly Real Spanish conversations for Advanced and Inspired Intermediate Spanish learners!
Today, Ben and Marina discuss the invasion of Madrid by shared electric scooters, cars and bicycles, that are revolutionising the very infrastructure and regulations of the city’s transport system. Where will it all end?

Tips on How to Use the Notes in Spanish Conversations Audio
Advanced Learners: Listen to the audio the whole way through. Listen again with the transcript to make sure you don’t miss a thing, and to be sure you know all the ‘Real, Essential Spanish’ we outline in the second part of the transcript, it’s really important at your level.
Inspired Intermediate Learners: Don’t panic if the Spanish feels really challenging! It should! Listen to the Spanish conversation, ideally with the transcript – we promise that no matter how challenging this may seem, this ‘real immersion’, with the transcript to help, is the best possible thing you can do for your Spanish!
As Kathleen said about our previous advanced conversations, “I’m one of those you describe as a ‘motivated intermediate’. I want to assure others in that category that this podcast is definitely approachable with the aid of the notes [transcript]. I wasn’t surprised that I understood little listening to the podcast without the notes, but I was amazed at how much I could understand having the notes to read alongside.”
Un abrazo desde Madrid!
Ben y Marina
