    has changed subjects

    We’re not changing subjects here. No, still more of Balades episode 3. You can still find the other two episodes and start of this episode below. You just need to sign up for our newsletter to take the quizzes for older clips on site.

    We’re staying on topic and continuing. I continue to enjoy her use of past tense in these episodes. It’s still quite easy to follow for a beginner like me. This clip is the exact half way point for this episode, there will be 54 clips in total.

    If you’re just joining us as a beginner, I recommend you start with the first episode of Balades. Follow along daily for new clips.

    How did you find today’s clip compared to yesterday’s clip? I tend to be most comfortable when the clip is around 150wpm. This clip, with 20 words, is slow pace and another reason that continues to make Balades great for beginners.

    I love Balades for my current level, around A1 (hopefully progressing to A2). Hopefully you’re enjoying these clips too. Even when there’s a fast clip, it’s still manageable. The right amount of challenge. What do you think? Join us for the next quiz.
