Hola, me llamo Juan. Vivo en la Ciudad de México y mi día comienza con la salida del sol. Me levanto temprano para tomar mi café y luego camino hasta el trabajo, el cual se encuentra a una corta distancia. Durante el día, me dedico a trabajar en mi pequeña tienda de artesanías donde confecciono y vendo productos hechos a mano. Aunque mi trabajo puede ser agotador, me siento afortunado de poder hacer lo que amo y compartirlo con los demás.
Hello, my name is Juan. I live in Mexico City and my day begins with sunrise. I get up early to have my coffee and then walk to work, which is only a short distance away. During the day, I dedicate myself to working in my small craft shop where I make and sell handmade products. Although my job can be exhausting, I feel lucky to be able to do what I love and share it with others.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.
Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure.

Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.
Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
