Beginners??? 😐

This might be ok if you already know the basics, but for a total beginner?😨

Just one week!

After just one week of working through these podcasts - have just listened to number four - I feel my confidence in understanding and speaking Spanish has improved greatly.
I have been struggling to learn Spanish for almost ten years, initially at weekly classes, with a conversation group and for the last five years with Dúolingo. The latter is good but notes in Spanish is fantastic. Listening to Ben and Marina is like listening to friends chatting. The sound quality is excellent and if I don’t quite get something I can easily back track a bit. I am already learning new words and I instantly recognised what a superb learning resource NIS is and I have signed up for The Whole Enchilada. It’s going to be a great investment.

Why oh why did I not find NIS years ago? Tell your friends about it now.
