Another great Spanish language series from Ben & Marina

For anyone wanting to improve their Spanish or keep their ear in, this series is great!
Each episode is about 15 mins long and covers topics discussed solely in Spanish.
But don’t let that frighten you! Ben and Marina, the masters of making Spanish accessible, speak clearly and add maybe one or two more advanced phrases so that you constantly learn something new.
You can follow along with the transcript from their website that also includes must know phrases which make you sound really Spanish!
I’ve listened to most of their different podcast series, from absolute beginner, through intermediate and advanced and I HIGHLY recommend them, for whatever level you’re at.
You’ll be surprised at how easy and fun it is to learn with them.
If I could rate this a million stars, I would!

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.
