Excellent

An excellent learning resource for Spanish

Bujanj ,

Great podcast

Really enjoyable. Easy to follow. Picked up loads of vocabulary and am amazed how much I understood. Two reading speeds and two accents really help. Thank you for the transcripts also.

Stokesyc ,

Fabulous

Easy to follow. Spoken fast and slow, and with two accents, which really helps me. The stories are simple and fun. There is always a point, a punchline, or a moral: witty and wise. Thanks.
