Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Alex: And I'm Alex.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to post and leave comments in Spanish about being exhausted. Cristina feels exhausted after a long day at work, posts an image of it, and leaves this comment:
Alex: ¡Por fin puedo ir a descansar a mi casa!
Eric: Meaning - "Finally, I can go rest at home!" Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.
