This was AMAZING!

I wanted to learn Spanish so badly and I came across this. It was AMAZING! I haven’t gotten into 1.02 yet, but 1.01 was SO amazing! You should try this right now!

We need a Latino version

Let’s be real, European Spanish is only spoken as a primary language in Spain. Latino Spanish is the official language of 19 countries and that’s not even including territories like Puerto Rico. Therefore, Castellano is practically useless for those outside Europe, not to mention, the lisp is just straight up ugly sounding compared to how beautiful Latino Spanish is. Can we please get a practical version of Coffee break Spanish taught by an actual native speaker??? No offense to Mark but his Spanish isn’t perfect and he’s admitted to never even stepping foot in Latin America so how can he possibly teach both versions in this one podcast. Just make another podcast please.
