Is Spanish in Mexico different from Spain?
Not only is the Spanish spoken in Mexico different from Spain, it’s also different from every other country in Latin America! In Mexico, they speak with a dialect all their own, and more importantly, it’s the kind of Spanish spoken most in North America. So, if you’re learning Spanish from a podcast from Spain, you may be learning phrases and expressions that aren’t used by people in Latin America. Meaning, it’s not going to sound quite right to native Spanish speakers from Mexico. That’s why a Mexican Spanish podcast will help you sound much more natural when you communicate with people from Mexico and Latin America.
And best of all, we offer hundreds of free lessons that you can access on iTunes, Google Podcasts, or right here on our website.

Podcast Listener Reviews
Doorway To Mexico has been so helpful to me on my journey to learn Spanish. I am at an intermediate level and I feel like I am improving every day because of this language course.
I am visiting Mexico right now and this program really helped me even though I only had two weeks to get ready.
I highly recommend these podcasts for taking your Spanish to the next level, particularly if you want to learn Mexican Spanish.
In Mexico, they speak with a lot of colloquial expressions and slang words. Meaning, even if you know a lot of standard Spanish, the fact is that if you’re not familiar with common Mexican phrases, you might have trouble following along a conversation with someone from Mexico.
For example, in our language course we go deep into the nuances of Mexican phrases like – órale, ándale, a poco, no inventes, chingo, chorro, bájale – and much more!
In conclusion, if you want to learn the kind of Mexican words and phrases that people speak in Mexico, then first and foremost, you need to study Mexican Spanish. Therefore, why not devote some time to listening to how real Mexicans speak? You can listen while driving, exercising, or taking a walk. And best of all, it’s free!
Mexican History & Culture
In addition to teaching you the Mexican Spanish, we spend time in our podcasts reviewing some very important cultural norms. For instance, in our restaurant podcast, we talk about how much tip is appropriate for waiters in Mexico. And in the Arts & Crafts episode, we discuss the history and tradition of some of Mexico’s most cherished handicrafts.
Without a doubt, our podcasts and conversations will enable you to travel through Mexico and feel confident, not only about your Spanish, but about your behavior as well. As another example, we spend a lot of time talking about how to use your Spanish in a polite way. The reason for this is because courtesy and politeness are important parts of how people use the language in Mexico. So, we’ll teach you how to use your Spanish to say things like “Would you mind….” and “Could you please do me the favor or…”, and best of all, you’ll sound natural when you say it!
