Who these Spanish language podcasts are designed for
This isn’t a Spanish language podcast series for beginners. Our language course requires some knowledge of basic Spanish grammar. If you know a little Spanish but have trouble keeping up with real conversations, you’ll benefit from this series. Similarly, if you have trouble speaking Spanish, this podcast series can help you sound more natural.
What these Spanish language podcasts are designed to teach you
Our goal is to help you understand the kind of Spanish that people actually speak. It’s not about textbooks and perfect grammar, it’s about learning how to communicate in a more natural way with native Spanish speakers.
What kind of Spanish do we teach
The host of this podcast is a professional language teacher from Mexico City. For that reason, we put an emphasis on teaching Latin American Spanish. Generally speaking, the Spanish language in Spain is very similar to the Spanish spoken in Latin America. However, the contrast becomes more pronounced at higher levels of Spanish proficiency. As a result, if you’re not familiar with the colloquial expressions and nuances of the language from a particular region, you might have difficulty keeping up with a conversation.
