Hello, there! In the world of languages, there are many ways to learn. Some people prefer total immersion into the culture that spokes that language, some people prefer a hard study of the grammar of the language and some people just want to learn with media material, such as YouTube videos, Apps, and Podcasts. That’s why we will show you today the 5 Spanish Podcasts for Beginners we consider are the best ones. Let’s get started!
What to look for in a podcast
In our opinion, a good podcast needs to show you a common way of speaking and a vocabulary that you can remember when you speak the language. I mean, if you are going to listen to a podcast, you may don’t want to hear a very specific episode about the beginnings of the paleolithic era (except you’re into that subject, of course). What we want to say is, try to look for podcasts that speak of something about you care about, something about you are into. And also, try to listen to people speaking at a normal speed, not too fast but not too slow, because that’s not how people actually speak in the real life, and we think is not a good practice.
Okay, let’s go with the list!
5 Spanish Podcasts for Beginners
Coffee Break Spanish is a good start because they mix both English and Spanish. So, if you don’t know any Spanish, you can learn some basics, such as Saying how you are feeling, Greetings, Saying where are you from, etc.
Notes in Spanish is a very nice podcast hosted by a half-English half Spanish couple, Greg and Marina, from England and Spain. They teach you a very useful vocabulary and they practice it in a conversation. The interesting thing about this podcast is that. As it is led by a bilingual couple, all possible doubts that may arise are always answered by one of them.
