'Mujer' > 'Muchacha' in the spoken text?

Listening and understanding is certainly my weakest point in learning Spanish. Although my initial Kviziq test placed me in category C1, I know that I am not really at that level in all respects. Thus, these B2 (and even some B1) exercises are proving useful - Many Thanks ! … (The fact that I managed to notice that [in your sentence: ... Dalí y su "Muchacha en la ventana"] "mujer" was accidentally spoken in place of "muchacha", must mean that I am making some progress).

Hola David,

Very well spotted! There is actually a mistake there. That bit of text doesn't coincide with what I am saying. 

I am indeed saying "mujer en una ventana" but the name of Dalí´s work is "Muchacha en la ventana". That will be fixed as soon as possible.

Gracias por notificarlo.

Un saludo,

Inma
