It's time for a festive episode of the Coffee Break Spanish Magazine. In this lesson, Anabel joins Mark and Fernanda to discuss Navidad en Madrid and together they discuss festive traditions in the Spanish capital. There's a question from listener Sarah about developing listening skills, and Anabel also shares a useful idiomatic expression which is linked to this time of year. The expression involves El Gordo, the famous lottery drawn at Christmas. If you'd like to watch this year's adverts for El Gordo, click here.
