Highly reccommended for any interested in improving their Spanish! I only wish there were more episodes...
I’ve listened to Ben and Marina for over three years now. I have listened to their Intermediate, Advanced, and Gold episodes. They’ve been really helpful.
The length is good for me; I listen while I get ready in the morning. I often listen to them more than once, sometimes trying to catch each word.
The topics they discuss are interesting and pretty diverse. I highly recommend their podcasts. I haven’t tried their Beginners podcasts because I already had been learning Spanish for a while when I first started listening—but I bet they are great too!
Thank you for your help with my Spanish, Ben and Marina.
I love this format!
I pick up so many great words and idioms listening to these guys.... Entertaining and informative. Thank you!
