GOOD HUMOR, VARIETY AND CREATIVITY!
The good humor and creativity that I put into the content of each episode is what makes this Spanish teaching podcast completely different from the others. For example, I do a podcast series where 4 guests participate, each of them comes from a different Spanish-speaking country. Manolo is from Spain, Nico, from Argetina, Pancho, is Mexican, and Juanjo is a "paisa" from Colombia, guess who does the voices of each character?
There is another podcast series where I interview non-native speakers, such as the renowned Dutch web designer and travel blogger, Sabine Boogaard, who is also our permanent contributor to the show. But in addition to that I also invite students from my private Spanish classes. This podcast series is a kind of hot seat, where I ask questions related to a specific topic and then correct the mistakes of my guests on air.
As I am a traveler, I also record podcasts while walking the streets of any city in the world. This is a podcast series where spontaneity prevails, without neglecting the presentation of historical and cultural notes that surround the place visited.
For the days when your time is limited, I have a short podcast series where I explain and give examples to properly use the most exotic words in the Spanish language.
Here you also will find a great variety of topics dialogues, based on all the situations that a native Spanish speaker faces on a daily basis.
There is another podcast series focused on the curiosities of the Spanish-speaking culture. There is also another podcast series where I answer the questions that listeners from all over the world ask me. In this way, I answer the questions that concern you the most when learning Spanish.
I am like a kind of Sigmound Freud of teaching Spanish. My classes are like clinics where I personally identify all the problems that prevent students from improving their learning and way of speaking Spanish. That experience is what has allowed me to group the episodes of this podcast into various series.

My name is Alex De la Paz, I am a journalist, professor, and I will be your host while you have fun learning Spanish.
I think I have superpowers when I am teaching something, or I am in front of the microphones, for the rest I am a simple human being.
