Its not a "Portuguese thing!!!"

This is not a "Portuguese thing" as a previous revised said. I believe she nwvar heard Castilian Spanish. The c in Castilian Spanish sounds just like the narrator' accent. I find it lovely but being a Portuguese speaker, that c is hard for me to emulate.
The stories are great for learners and lovers of the Spanish language. The narrator's pronunciation is very clear and precise.

Not Really for Beginners

Some interesting stories here. I like how chapters are short and digestible. These are not really for beginners. More like high intermediate.
