Situational dialogues from typical daily circumstances, so you can prepare yourself to survive realistic Spanish encounters, in shops, cafés, and on the street, making meeting people second nature
Conversations that are carefully written to be accessible for intermediate learners (B1-B2 on the CEFR), so you can learn from real, spoken conversations, without having to go through the roller coaster of difficult conversations with strangers.
Each conversation is limited to around 15 lines of dialogue (150 words), so you can get that crucial sense of achievement and motivation when you finish each conversation, and say, “I actually understood all of that!
Word lists with English definitions in every chapter, so you can get instant translations of any difficult words. This means you can focus on enjoying the story rather than wasting time in a dictionary.
Summaries of each conversation which contextualize each dialogue, so you can easily follow the plot and enjoy the story without getting lost
The story is set in Spain and includes expressions that are typical in Castilian Spanish. However, since the conversations use mostly “neutral” Spanish, you’ll have plenty to learn, whether you’re learning the Spanish of Mexico, Colombia, or Costa Rica.
