Ben and Marina are amazing

Ben and Marina are a joy to listen to.
I’ve learnt so much from them and from buying the worksheets too.
It’s Spanish how the Spanish really speak.
It’s witty, up to date, informative and educational.
What’s not to like.
I think they work really hard on their content too.
Thank you.
I’m so glad I’ve found you both.

Audio is the key!

Ben y Marina muchas gracias amigos! I love listening to you both and your audio has helped me so much. My last visit to Spain I was able to speak conversational Spanish, partly influenced by your podcasts. I love listening and look forward to every Monday when the new episode is released!
