This lesson is part of a Spanish course that practices the grammar and vocabulary first introduced in my Advanced Spanish course posted here on the Transparent Language blog. Let’s test your listening comprehension and see if you can understand a short audio in Spanish. The transcript to the audio will be given at the end of the post but please try not to look at it until you have tried playing and understanding the audio a few times.

Use the following link to watch the corresponding video lesson of the original course:

Advanced Spanish Lesson – Position of Spanish adjectives

Now play the audio to listen a conversation. Can you understand what is being said? Play the audio a few times before you look at the transcript. Don’t worry if you don’t understand every single thing the two people are saying. Try to catch whichever words you can and then try to piece things together to work out what is being said.

(Play the audio a few times before you scroll down and look at the transcript)



Silvia: Hola Eric, necesito tu ayuda.

Eric: ¿Mi ayuda? ¿Qué te pasa?

Silvia: Nada, nada. Es que quiero llevar a mi madre a un restaurante bueno por su cumpleaños, pero yo rara vez como fuera la verdad y necesito que me recomiendes algo.

Eric: Mmmm… no sé. Hay muchos restaurantes buenos en Madrid. ¿Qué comida le gusta a tu madre?

Silvia: Pues la comida española casera, mi madre es muy tradicional.

Eric: Comida española, vale. El mejor restaurante de comida casera que conozco es ´Casa Lorenzo´. Hay un menú muy amplio y tienen un excelente cocinero.

Silvia: Vale. ¿Tiene buenos precios?

Eric: No, la verdad. Es muy caro. Pero para un cumpleaños merece la pena ir.

Silvia: Vale. ¡Ah! Otra cosa. Mi madre es intolerante al gluten. ¿Podrá comer allí?

Eric: Supongo que sí. Pero yo llamaría. Sería una verdadera pena que fuerais y no hubiera comida para ella.

Silvia: Sí, tienes razón. Llamaré. Muchas gracias Eric

Eric: De nada.


So, how did you get on? How much did you understand of the listening? Please let me know in the comments section below…

Don’t worry if you didn’t understand that much, keep reviewing the vocabulary and phrases and you will soon be up to speed and ready for the next lesson in this course. See you next time!
