Best spanishlanguage podcast I’ve encountered! And in Castillano!

Marina and Ben are amazing! They come across as a very genuine, interesting and interested couple! The topics of their conversations are varied and useful and Marina never gets tired of correcting Ben’s small mistakes. I love the format and it is the most amazing resource out there! Thank you so much Marina & Ben!

Good for B2 + speakers

This is definitely for those that speak Spanish and can understand with a decent level of fluency already. Ben speaks very clearly and at a good speed. Marina speaks a bit too quickly and unclearly at times which is a bit of a shame and hence the 4 stars. The topics are interesting though and the use of slang is really useful! Wish there was a South American version of this podcast. Also would be great to have free transcripts!

Excellent resource

I'm a self-employed Spanish teacher in the UK and have been recommending Notes in Spanish to my learners for some years now. I love Ben and Marina's style of presentation and believe that this is an excellent resource for any learner.
