This is so useful

Thank you so much for this resource. This is by no means a standalone Spanish course, but when used to support other materials, it is a fantastic way of practicing listening skills. Really great.

Beginner is not so beginner

It's very obvious that the creators of the podcast started providing higher level podcasts and then worked backwards to beginner. I've been learning Spanish hard for the past few months now with other beginner material and this is difficult to wrap your head around as a beginner. The only thing that makes it beginner is the fact that English is spoken. The concepts they cover are fairly intermediate at least. Be ready for the deep end. Maybe start with a podcast with a better beginner structure and then listen to intermediate when you feel you're ready. The intermediate stuff is nice.

Fantastic!

I use the podcasts in conjunction with my Spanish course and find them great for listening practice and revising things I've learnt. Thanks so much ben and marina!
