October 3, 2022

“YOU SHALL NOT PASS!”. Have you ever heard a line like that in a movie? In Episode 5 of the Garbanzo Spanish podcast, our main character Ellie runs into a series of problems getting to where she needs to go. Listen to find out what happens! This story is told by Walter Rodríguez Martínez, who hails from Lima, Perú and has recorded many lessons for Garbanzo since joining the team!

There aren't any monsters or zombies in this episode, but I think I would take the monsters over what it DOES contain! Listen to this episode in sequence with the first four in order to maximize your understanding! This episode most closely aligns with Somos 1 Unit 2.5.
