What do you think about the Coffee Break Spanish podcast?
I've been listening to some episodes while driving in my car, and for the most part, I really like it.
Is there any other podcast that you think is better than Coffee Break Spanish that I should be listening to?
Has anyone purchase the supplemental materials from Coffee Break Spanish? If so, have they been very useful?
They're good for new learners.
I like Notes in Spanish. They have beginner through advanced podcasts.
Thanks so much Simone. I had never heard of these resources. Hmm...if I consider buying a Spanish podcast series, I might really consider Notes in Spanish now.
I did subscribe to that, and found it very useful for getting through the annoying intermediate stage towards advanced. newsinslowspanish was also worth every penny in that respect.
Simone, I just put 30 of their beginners lessons on my phone, so while I'm driving, I'll be able to evaluate which one is better. I'm thinking Notes in Spanish is going to be more immersive than Coffee Break, and probably will allow me to learn Spanish quicker.
They each have their strong points, and the quality is excellent :) I'm definitely going to subscribe to newsinslowfrench once I've exhausted the free beginners' material that's available on the internet, because I was so impressed with the Spanish version.
One thing though - you may already have noticed - these resources are mainly in Peninsular Spanish (which I what I needed), rather than Latin American Spanish. This means that some of the more colloquial language they teach may not be particularly useful, say, in Mexico.
For Latin American Spanish, you may want to consider www.spanishpod.com. They are a bit more expensive, but also of excellent quality. Check out their free stuff.
Thanks for these considerations. I will check out Spanishpod.com later. I live in the US, so I might need to think more about the Spanish I want to initially learn.
Right now Duolingo is my foundation for learning Spanish, and I'm trying to springboard off of it to immerse myself in Spanish in other ways.
