Didn’t like at first, but then it became the best for me to learn

When I first started listening to this show I wasn’t a fan. Felt a bit overwhelmed and had a hard time understanding them. But I have to say out of all the ways I consume Spanish, for some reason I always remember the words and phrases from this show. I think the cheesiness of their conversations always sticks with me. I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve been traveling, I’m tired, struggling to think of what to say in a Spanish speaking country, and for some reason their cheesy Spanish phrases and stories will pop out for me to use.

Fantastic podcast!

I have tried many Spanish learning podcasts and apps and have found this podcast to be the most enjoyable as well as the best to learn from. Ben and Marina have a fun chemistry and discuss interesting topics in a really authentic way. I bought all the transcripts and love following along. Truly vale la pena!
