I love it
I love this podcast. I’ve listened through Unit 3 and already learned so much I never learned after 2 years of taking Spanish. I love how we’re taught and native speakers also talk so we can hear the accents. And I love how there’s interactive listen and respond practice twice and we don’t necessarily learn too much that we wouldn’t necessarily use (like how we focus on LATAM Spanish instead of using Vosotros) 5/5 stars
Wow. I love this. Simple, straight to the point, easy to understand.
Really glad I came across this podcast. Really enjoy the small snippets of teaching!!
