love it it is so amazing ,

Nice Podcast, Mannerisms can be annoying

I am enjoying this podcast however I do find some of Catrina’s mannerisms a bit annoying. It’s like she will just start laughing or chuckling like a pubescent schoolgirl when she’s trying to say a phrase which shows her insecurity or lack of self confidence. She used to do this in the other podcast too, and I felt the same way. It doesn’t give me much confidence she has conviction in trying to learn the language (maybe thus the title), but Hector comes to the rescue as the pro.

Spanish Rook! ,

Good podcast accessory to the app!

I’m enjoying the podcast along with the app. I struggle with hearing bc of the speed of the language as well with conjugations and the multi-variations of word/use. She’s either a quick learner or the podcast airing doesn’t reflect her lesson dates! Hector is a great teacher...

So far it’s helpful

I’m one mont in to my Babel subscription and found this podcast in the app. I really enjoy Catriona and Hector and they’ve been helpful as an accessory to the app. I only wish there was a worksheet or something along those lines to accompany each episode to help with understanding because they move through it so quickly. I listen and read-listen every morning as I get ready for work where I can practice use with Spain’s speaking customers. But because the podcasts don’t really correlate with my app lessons, I find I still struggle with conjugation. A correlating worksheet would be really helpful!
