I have been trying to watch ministry el tiempo

But I keep getting distracted by other shows, watching scrubs at the moment.

If you like time travel shows I recommend ministry el tiempo from what little I have seen of it.

It looks like it travels to times of importance is Spain’s history and includes historical figures so I thought it sounded good, sci-fi time travel stuff plus education about history and culture of Spain (unsure on the accuracy)

Good accuracy (about facts, not about language), bad resolution of time paradoxes, but I don't care, it is a really good series. I'd like another season.

Not good accuracy about language?

Do you mean because someone from 500 years ago speaks modern Spanish?

Or another issue?

July 20, 2019

That one. All people speak Spanish, and they do it like in Madrid in 2000s, no matter they are El Cid, Simón Bolívar or Ferdinand the Catholic. Usual business in historic series.

That's probably a good thing for learning the language though. I would hate to learn a lot of archaic phrases and strange dialects, then discover nobody speaks like that anymore.

I've watched a couple of episodes of the series, and I like it so far. Unfortunately, the dialogue is too fast for me to follow, and even with Spanish subtitles I can't keep up without pausing frequently. If I watch an episode once with English subtitles, then I can repeat with Spanish subtitles follow along pretty well.

Yes, I agree. I'm not asking for El Cid speaking in Old Spanish (we wouldn't understand), but asking for time travellers acting about learning Old Spanish. We'll keep hearing Modern Spanish, just like we hear English in Hollywood movies about Jesus or Medieval Japan, but they don't pretend that Pontius Pilatos spoke Modern English.
