Ben y Marina

I only found this place a few days back. I've listened to a few podcasts and they seem really useful. I like the laid back style and being a brit married to a Sevillana I can very much relate to some of the humour between you . I can also squeeze in a 30 minute chunk as and when - great format.

I started learning spanish 25 years ago but have had very little formal training (and even now only spend about 8 weeks a year in Spain). That said as Pilar speaks very little English I can survive under most circumstances (accept as when Ben you went to the inlaws and as you said it is not the speed but the 5 distinct conversations all taking place at the same time ). The other problem is that Pilar and I speak a strange form of Spaningles which doesn't help.

Apart from my lack of accurate grammar I also suffer from spending time in Asturias: perrin, gaites, pote and other local words are creeping in.

Anyway I'll be using the intermediate to quickly revise and the advanced to try and improve my listening and accuracy. Alongside I'll try and find a good source of exercises (?)

Also think the foro is great. Appears lots of helpful spanish speakers around.

Well onward and upward. Un saludo Nigel
