Hello All,
To help you with your listening habit: 2 minutes of listening today – play this sound 8 times.

It doesn’t matter if you hear one word or all of them. All that matters is that you learn to recognize one or two new words today.

A listening tip:

Listen to the word “carrés.” Notice that it’s not “car… és” but rather “ca…. rés.” Instead of dragging the R after the a, as we would do in English, he  pronounces the R with a sharp attack. It sounds almost like a consonant here. Do you agree?
