I prefer the video option to just audio-only. Was the series only made mostly in audio?

Why is there no option to change from Mexican Spanish to Basic Spanish Spanish?

Hola Bila,


Thank you for your question.

'th' sound at the end is like Iberian Spanish pronounce it and 's' sound at the end is for Latin Spanish pronunciation.

Sigamos practicando!
