This lesson is part of a Spanish course that practices the grammar and vocabulary first introduced in my Advanced Spanish course posted here on the Transparent Language blog. Let’s test your listening comprehension and see if you can understand a short audio in Spanish. The transcript to the audio will be given at the end of the post but please try not to look at it until you have tried playing and understanding the audio a few times.

Advanced Spanish Lesson – More about using Spanish relative pronouns

Now play the audio to listen a conversation. Can you understand what is being said? Play the audio a few times before you look at the transcript. Don’t worry if you don’t understand every single thing the two people are saying. Try to catch whichever words you can and then try to piece things together to work out what is being said.

(Play the audio a few times before you scroll down and look at the transcript)



Olivia: Rick ¿con quién estabas hablando?

Rick: ¿Hablando? ¿Cuándo?

Olivia: Antes en la cafetería. ¿Quién era la chica con la que estabas hablando?

Rick: ¿Sonia? ¿No la conoces?

Olivia: No, creo que no.

Rick: ¡Sí hombre! Es la chica de la que te hablé la semana pasada. Con la que fui a la conferencia de Barcelona.

Olivia: ¡Ah, ya me acuerdo! Es que no la había visto nunca. ¿Qué tal fue la conferencia?

Rick: Super aburrida.

Olivia: ¿Sí? Pues a la que fui yo el año pasado en Barcelona estuvo muy bien.

Rick: Pues este año ha sido un rollo. Me aburría tanto que estuve leyendo un libro todo el tiempo.

Olivia: ¿El libro del que me hablaste ayer?

Rick: Sí, ese mismo. Me lo he terminado hoy. Está genial.

Olivia: ¿Me lo dejas?

Rick: Sí, sí, toma.
