Great advice

I also have been trying to get back into learning Spanish again, since I got stuck in the Intermediate level and gave up many years ago. As an ESL teacher I have felt embarrassed about this, I know my Spanish speaking students judge me on it, too. So I decided to pick up Spanish again. The language learning world has changed a lot , and there are more podcasts and YouTube channels out there now than before. I gave up. Then I found this podcast. It has been so helpful so far. His advice is timeless. I also checked out his reviews on language programs and apps, and his critique on Michel Tomas was honest and true, I used the Michel Tomas program and I still can’t speak Spanish. I am now planning on using what I have learned here and apply it with my ESL class now. I had become Grammar focused. Now I realized these students need talking time not Grammar. After listening to the advice on here, I now will use my time w my students constructively and have them speak in English rather than study English. My students will probably have more fun and not dread the Grammar lessons that come w every ESL class. Love this podcasts.

Solid show

For some reason, most language learners on YouTube and in podcasts have irksome personalities. Not so with Donovan! I really enjoy any content this guy puts out. Check out this podcast!

Inspirational Language Podcast

I listen to a lot of language learning podcasts. This is my favorite. I feel he goes deeper than most others and often approaches things from a different point of view.
