Translation:The lieutenant speaks with the colonel.
Why are we learning every police and army rank- before we are learning more basic job titles that are more likely to come up in every day life, eg taxi driver, nurse, shopkeeper? When does the average person need to consult a lieutenant, investigators, colonels, commanders etc!!
I agree. I don't remember signing up to learn military Spanish. My mother and most of her friends are nurses. I also know some cooks and waitresses. I don't know anybody of any rank in the military. Although, I may know want to know later it seems like we should be learning COMMON jobs right now.
