Five years ago, I was a Gang Prosecutor in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. One winter night, I decided to try an experiment: Could I learn Spanish from watching a telenovela? Five years later, I left my job and Chicago, to move to Mexico City, to write the telenovela of my dreams. I don’t understand Spanish or The Metric System. Just like in a great telenovela,, anything can happen... Stay tuned!

Listen with caution while driving! :)

I love this podcast! As I drove to work one rainy Monday morning I listened to the episode where la gringa describes her “arrogance” in the grocery store.
I laughed so hard I almost caused several small accidents. I’m happy to say I learned a few things as well.
The way la gringa describes her adventures is hysterical, insightful and thoroughly enjoyable!
I’m also learning some Spanish as well!

I like so much listen Gringa Novelera personal telenovela

It is narrated in a very entertaining and fun way of telling.
I am Mexican and I like to know the perspective that a person from another country who has decided to come to live here can have.

La Gringa is my hero!

What a witty and entertaining podcast! I laugh every single episode. I just discovered it but I’m already 4 episodes in. Karen is so naturally funny and the way she describes the novelas is very accurate. They are kind of ridiculous but also very fun to watch. Keep up the great work Karen! You have a fan base
