Superb and Highly Recommended

Can’t really believe this quality of learning is available for free!

Super engaging! Has inspired me to restart my Spanish

Thank you for creating this podcast! The travel diaries have made me feel I’ve gained some culture even whilst working from home.

Good but the presenter becomes increasingly annoying

The show starts off good and is really helpful. However Mark becomes increasingly cringey as the series progress and also starts asking for reviews and award nominations and trying to sell his premium materials in every episode.
