Loved my first listen

First time listening to this podcast. Joel is SO GOOD at keeping his speaking tempo down. I can not only follow the meaning but I have a moment to consider and reflect on an unexpected grammar usage or vocabulary. I expect to be listening a lot more in the future. Muchas gracias!

Another MIke from Boston ,

A fantastic resource

I am so glad I found this podcast. Geared towards learners of Spanish, it is both entertaining and super informative. I've been listening mostly to the intermediate lessons and a few of the advanced ones. It's a real boost to my confidence to be able to listen to the podcast and actually understand it. The focus of specific grammatical features in the conversations is a huge help in learning the grammatical patterns.

Señor Ken ,

Outstanding Podcast

Señor Zárate is an incredibly talented linguist and teacher. Each podcast is overwhelmingly full of substantial content, all supplemented and documented on the summary pages containing grammar and vocabulary notes from the storyline.
The teaching method is highly effective and professional.
