The Rusty Prince ,

Excellent!

A great podcast for upper beginner/lower intermediate Spanish learners.

Great podcast for beginner or intermediate listeners

The Dreaming Spanish community recommends Cuentame for beginning listeners. It’s a great recommendation for people who are learning Spanish via Comprehensible Input (CI) because it allows you to get your hours of listening in without having to watch a video. I’m able to easily get in 1-2 hours of day listening to podcasts now after about ~100 hours of video. So it’s working great so far!

Thank you Marta!

My only little nitpick is I wish there wasn’t any English at all, and all the words were just explained in context with Spanish. But that’s a minor nitpick.

I plan on signing up for the OPTIONAL monthly fee just to support Marta and her continued production of the podcast.

Great podcast to learn Spanish

This is an awesome podcast! I use this and dreaming Spanish each day for an hour. I appreciate the slow and then normal speed. Definitely recommend!
