Latin Am vs. Spanish

I selected Latin American Spanish but to my ear this listening exercise uses a Spanish accent -- or is it Argentinian? "preciosa" for example is pronounced "prefiotha" but that is not how I've heard it in Ecuador. Or are the listening exercises not tailored to the selection of Latin Am vs. Spain?

Hola AI

You're right. The narrator in this dictation is from Spain and using a standard Castilian accent. All dictations are accessible for both focuses: Spain or Latam. So far, we haven't used Latin American voices for these but we are in the process to add some. We do use Latin American voices in some of our reading exercises though. Here are a couple if you'd like to have a read/listen:

El día de engañar en Menorca

Francisco Salzillo
