When I completed my Duolingo tree, I was desperate to find other ways to expose myself to the Spanish language so that I would be able to not only reinforce what I learned on here, but also develop it further. I wanted to share some of these resources:

Spanish Obsessed: https://spanishobsessed.com/ - they offer great resources and audio materials at varying levels of difficulty.

CHATconJK: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZTGkAZvaRXoBDIqb-Ypo8w - this is a brand new channel intended for both English speakers learning Spanish and vice-versa. Short entertaining videos that look at topics such as false friends, idioms, colloquial expressions...

SpanishSessions: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU-GWSBUq8FAqmOXA3N6gzw - these videos are conducted completely in Spanish but with subtitles available if you need them. Great for training the ear.

The Spanish Blog: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTE_K15-rkN7h9xdfzYlDfw - Spanish lessons taught by a Spanish person.

Professor Jason: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2-lKlnIdzq6-e-zwU34YJw - one of my favourites. He is a teacher by profession and explains some of the more difficult aspects of Spanish really well.

I would love to see some of your suggestions!

Some of those videos are fine but a tad bit too didactic. Too many talking heads. I prefer the beauty of natural full-speed conversations with or without subtitles. That's why I always enjoyed @extra.

When I wanted to expose myself to natural Spanish, I'll just watch videos of native speakers discussing subjects that I find interesting. When I feel I need to reinforce grammatical lessons, I'll check out a Dr. Jason video on the subjunctive or indirect/direct objects. The first episode of "Yo soy Betty la fea" provides a lot of dialogue that reinforces basic introductions. As an intermediate learner, it is far more educational and entertaining than some one simply posting a video of a talking head discussing the grammatial points of basic formal introductions.

I'm enjoying Salamanca A2 quite a bit. I signed up to help my mom with it, but the refresher course on stuff I haven't seen since high school has been pretty nice. This edition is almost over, though, so if you're going to try it, sign up quickly.

I want to re-take this course. I was too preoccupied, so I didn't finish this course but it did make me feel confident that I could survive in Spain or México with my current abilities. I like the overall style and appreciate that it is entirely in Spanish doesn't bother me. Unfortunately I can't access this course from work, but I wonder if they have B1 or B2 course available.

Do you know how often they release this course? ¿Es cada temporada?

I've only seen the A2 course, unfortunately. I'd love a higher level too, but so far, no luck.

Y no sé. Aún no he visto ningún anuncio sobre una cuarta edición. =(
