Great for maintenance and practice
I love this podcast as a supplement to my regular classes. It’s fun, the hosts are pleasant and don’t waste time on unrelated chit chat. It’s short enough to fit easily in a car ride or a walk but it’s packed with vocabulary and grammar. I love practicing old words and constructions, and picking up a few new words. They repeat a lot and give you a chance to practice. Because one of them is a native English speaker, he explains a lot of the more subtle differences quite well. Liz does need to speak more loudly but overall it’s one of the best podcasts I’ve found to practice Spanish.
I learned Spanish years ago and don’t get a ton of opportunities to practice. I’m always looking for ways to maintain my listening and comprehension skills, THANK YOU so much for this podcast and your other podcasts. You are both easy to understand and have interesting conversations i actually want to listen to. THANK YOU!!!!!!
Great podcast :)
