Worth persevering with as a beginner

It took me a few listens to get into these podcasts. Even though my spoken Spanish is a bit stilted, am getting a lot better at picking out words and phrases when I listen to others. The podcasts have really helped with getting an ear for the language even when I don’t understand every word that has been said. Plus I get to learn some interesting human stories from around the world which is always a good thing.

Good

I love them and it’s interesting but I miss it being on Duolingo because it’s quicker, there are speaking exercises in it, and there was a good design.
