Where is the book download?

Any additional comments?

Spanish short stories is a good listen but I want to be able to read along with the narrator. Why isn't the text available.? Having the written text would make this course all 5 stars

Best Spanish audiobook

Best Spanish audiobook, I’ve listened to so far. Stories are fun and compelling and written in a great way that you understand the whole meaning even if there are words that you don’t know. Definitely worth every penny. Looking forward to Olly’s next publication..

Great read!

this book is a great tool for intermediate to advanced Spanish students. Sometimes it is difficult to find short stories that are good for students. The stories are great fun and will help you to start reading books in Spanish.

Best I've found on Audible

Found this really good. Definitely the best I've found on Audible. It's read in a Spanish accent (rather than Latino) which was something I was looking for and I found the level perfect for me. The speed was just right - it was at a pace that felt natural, while still being clear and wasn't too fast, nor painfully slow like some other of the audio books. And it's just the story, there's no time wasted telling you vocabulary you already know which I also found annoying with the other ones. If i don't understand a part I like to rewind and listen again, jotting down the words I don't know, then study them after. I find this method much more engaging than hearing someone monotonously repeating a word and its meaning. I found this through some of Olly Richard's other online work, and I find his style of learning/teaching much better. The stories are good, interesting and varied, and of a great length. Overall highly recommended for anyone at the intermediate level!
