Lisa ABQ ,

Clear and entertaining

The stories are entertaining, and the narrators speak clearly and slowly. It’s perfect for those of us who know some Spanish but can’t follow the pace of conversations in normal settings.

@themaney ,

Awesome

I speak some Spanish but I was wanting to get better at translating for people. This is a great way to help you do that because the initial slower story is just slow enough for me to translate it. I’m also still learning lots of words so I can figure them out via context or I can google them and still listen simultaneously. Great podcast.

kimmythequeenbee ,

Such a great help!

My husband and I have been studying Spanish with Duolingo for over 3 years. I love adding this podcast to my study week because it is helping me listen to the language in larger doses than a typical lesson on the app allows. I feel like it’s really helping me with comprehension. I am SO grateful for this resource! Thanks for all the work that goes into it. It is apporeciated!
