What made the experience of listening to Vacaciones al sol [Vacations in the Sun] the most enjoyable?
My biggest problem with learning Spanish (having taken 3 Spanish courses in the past) has been associating the sounds of the language with the written words - this has led to me being able to read Spanish fine, but not being able understand the spoken language (a real problem!) For me, listening to the audio of this book while reading the free transcript was a great way to learn how Spanish words sound.
Which scene was your favorite?
The narrator mostly speaks relatively slowly, but in some scenes speaks more rapidly - this is great practice for someone like me who is mainly trying to learn to distinguish between the sounds of the language.
Any additional comments?
The story was also pretty interesting as well - I was at least interested enough to find out the ending! And it has nice cultural references as well, which made me nostalgic for Barcelona and Spain. I can't wait to continue reading and advancing through this series!

This is my third if the series. It is my favorite of the three. Very short, simple story.
If you are at the level of beginner going onto intermediate Spanish learner, then this books would be to be at that correct level for you. I benefited from reducing the speed of narration in the Audible app to 0.75 for the first read. Straightforward story, good vocabulary consolidating a beginners vocab with perhaps a few new words depending on what you have read before. This one seems to be the easiest of the series to understand, so a good starting point.
