How well could you understand the conversation?
a) It was a piece of cake, no challenge at all.
b) I could understand most of it without a problem.
c) I could understand some words, but I could not get the gist of it.

d) I could not get a thing of what they were saying.

If your answer is either A or B, great job! Now, try to transcribe the whole conversation, word by word, in 4 minutes or less. You can listen to the audio as many times as you need within the alotted time. (Check TRANSCRIPT & FEEDBACK below after transcribing the audio)
If you answered C or D, the Spanish Audio Blaster is definitely for you.
