Pleased to see the new workshop multipacks. A good way to catch up as I had fallen behind.

What I really enjoyed about this podcast were the verb conjugations. ('If I had done this, I would...') Great practicing material!

As far as regrets are concerned... like Marina, I wish I would have studied something more practical.

Everyone who speaks a foreign language seems to have his own particular stumbling block. I've got no problem with saying 'arrepentirse' or 'arrepentimiento' but the word 'ajedrez' drives me up the wall. I just can't say 'dr' with a rolling r as in ajedrez! Grrr!

I have big trouble with the words 'ejercito' and 'ejercicio' too!

Really a great (and fun) podcast for practicing grammar and pronunciation. I have been repeating the word "arrepentimientos" out loud all day. Whew!

If we can say that in public, native speakers of Spanish will surely be impressed!

For some reason, neither my iTunes nor my browser is able to download the mp3 file. Anybody else having this problem?

Can we double-check the link or check that the mp3 file is there? Thanks!

It must be my iTunes, then. I still can't download the thing on my home pc.

Listened to it at work- poor Ben, having a go at it with the hard words. I'm with you, man.

As for me, I have few regrets. I've always tried to pursue what my heart desires, and I've been satisfied with the choices I've made in life.

So far.

Nice to hear this, Brian. I feel the same way now. About 15 years ago I regretted not having studied Psychology instead of German and English. For this reason, I went back to university and got a degree in Psychology. And what am I doing now? I am happily back to languages - learning Spanish and translating and correcting English manuscripts for the Psychology Department (and waiting for our next grandchild in Chile due any day now).
