Why is it a good idea?

Here is a list of some of its greatest advantages:‚Äč

  1. You decide when and where you are going to learn Spanish.
  2. You can repeat, rewind, stop, or move forward at your convenience. In other words, you are in control.
  3. The audios are available for free.
  4. It is a lot more flexible than a course you have to pay for because there is no commitment. If you do not like a podcast, you may stop listening to it anytime without having to give an explanation or losing money. Just look for another podcast you like to learn Spanish with.
  5. Most of the podcasts have been produced by a native speaker. Even if he or she is not a good teacher, you can listen to a person who speaks Spanish well.

Podcasts to Learn Spanish:

  1. Check the number of episodes it offers. If you see only 10 or 15, most likely it is a podcast that only tries to lure you into buying something.
  2. After you have listened to a couple of episodes, ask yourself: What have I learnt? Can I use what I have learnt?
  3. Make sure you are not wasting your time. The person may be funny, but if he or she is not teaching anything practical, you are not learning much.
  4. Be active. Does the podcast involve you? Are you answering questions or repeating some sentences? If the answer is yes, you have found a good podcast to learn Spanish.
