I found this telenovela years ago on tv on the channel mun2 and fell in love with it but mun2 had the english captions so you understood. Once it's ended I was mad I didn't see it from the beginning. So tonight I went to youtube and type in sin senos no hay paraiso and I found it. The first scene I understood the character but the second scene they are talking to fast. I have the spanish caption on but it seems like the caption can't keep up with the characters talking because it doesn't show all of what they are saying. So should I just keep rewinding the scene to understand what the characters are saying or keep going on with the episode? So I start with something easier or keep going with this telenovela?

If you enjoy the show, rewind and keep watching. Or just keep going, you'll get the gist of it. In the mean time you're training your ears.

But if that feels like work, like an effort, or a struggle, find something different.

Don't get caught up in trying to decipher everything that you hear. It takes years to really develop an ear for the language. For now, just try and listen as well as you can without thinking about it too much. It is better to listen to Spanish being spoken in eight different scenes than trying to dissect just one conversation.

I`d wait a year or two until you can understand it pretty well. That way you will enjoy it more.

The title of this tv serie in Spain was ''Sin tetas no hay paraiso''. But i couldn't say if other tv serie is easier than this to understand... i'm sorry I can give you a recomendation that I think you could understand. Their name is "El internado".

The original title is "sin tetas no hay paraiso" (US authorities censored the original title). The characters use Colombian slang, so the subtitles probably "traduce" that slang to "standard" Spanish (I think that's what it happens when you say "it doesn't show all of what they are saying"). You could start with something easier.

Hello guys, my name is Adán Ayala, I am a Spanish Teacher from Mexico. I have a lot of experience using media and TV shows (much better than soap operas) as a form of immersion. They can be extremely productive as long as you know how to work and get the most out of them. I realized that my students after finishing their methods and programs in our school developed only some writing and limited speaking skills, and that is very far from being fluent. Most of them didn´t have many opportunities to practice or someone with whom to practice. Part of the problem was their lack of vocabulary, a small understanding of slang and idioms and very little training on their listening comprehension. I must say that the real challenge for me as a teacher was to find good content with subtitles and transcriptions to work and help the students analyze in a controlled class setting. But in the last years, some big networks and streaming services have invested more in Latin American and Spanish productions which is awesome, and it gives us great material to learn. Their topics and contents are closer to the global culture and interests than the traditional so-called "telenovelas". Please send me a message if anyone of you is interested in conversational classes using this method or you can contact me at adan@spanishlive.online or visit my website on http://spanishlive.online/
