Teaches Thpanish Spanish

If you want to learn an accent this is the podcast for you. If you are a North American and want to travel to Latin America, avoid this. I thought “hacer” was “hather” for like a month. Very confusing for a beginner who is trying to learn straightforward vocabulary.Why would you teach an accent based on some old Thpanish aristocrat’s lisp???

Fantastic

I have to say that Mark and his team have done a great job with this podcast. I started listening to this podcast 3 years ago to help me learn Spanish, I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much. However I started listening to it everyday and I now speak Spanish. My Spanish friends always say they're impressed every time I speak Spanish with them. Mark y co.seguid con el buen trabajo. Siempre os voy a apoyar. Un oyente estadounidense ¡gracias!

A wonderful podcast with great teachers!

This is an excellent resource for those looking to pickup or work on their Spanish learning. I find Mark and Kara very easy to follow and they make learning a lot of fun as well as provide tons of relevant situations for travelers needing to have real world dialog. Thanks for all that you do!

Awesome

I’ve gone through several of the Spanish language podcasts and this is the best and only one I’m writing a review for. Personally I discounted this one because is centered on Castilian (Spanish from Spain) but it’s easy style won me over. Soooo Coffee break Japanese next? 😁

5 Star Education and Entertaining

Let me start off by saying that anyone that has a problem with Mark or Cara’s accent doesn’t have any business learning a second language. Mark and Cara both speak clearly and provide both educational and entertaining conversation as you learn a second language. I’ve tried audiotapes and other podcasts, and Coffee Break Spanish blows the competition out of the water. They teach the language in a way that normal people can understand and they frequently provide details about the culture and language that other podcasts lack. Give it a shot, you won’t be disappointed.

Couldn’t make it past the first episode. Skip this one if you’re looking for Latin American Spanish.

Food for Thought

I reaaaaallly want to give this podcast 5 stars, but I’m finding that after about 3 or 4 episodes, the pace totally changed and got overwhelming. I took French in HS and a little Italian in college, and I know that everyone comes to language with different aptitudes. It was so thorough and paced well at the beginning, but then all of a sudden, I’m listening to full conversations and am missing 80% of what they’re saying, only to have a fraction of it explained. It’s not really practical... if I’m beginning Spanish or hoping to learn it, I’m not going to catch on if I can’t get more break down of basic words and ideas. One of the segments in the 5th episode starts taking about present subjunctive and giving nuances therein. I’m sorry, but that’s just a bit too steep a jump for the average person. I’m bummed because the people on the podcast seem lovely, but I got super discouraged. I know there is a member version, but why advertise it as a free podcast, if understanding is contingent upon getting the non free podcast? Sorry for the critical feedback, but I really wanted to be honest.

Phenomenal language-learning tool

I took Spanish for 8-years in school, then forgot everything after I stopped speaking it for a few years. Coffee Break Spanish helped me get my skills back quicker than I thought possible! The lessons are thoughtful and engaging. I would recommend listening to each episode a few times and supplementing with your own vocabulary study. Don’t listen to the silly people who complain about the accents, they’re easy to understand :)

Good but Cara has a rotten accent

Really good format. This podcast has taught me a lot. However, Cara’s accent is just plain preposterous. I often doubt if I am saying things correctly due to her ridiculous Scottish accent. Mark is amazing and they both seem to really care.

The Best Spanish Podcast

I’ve been learning Spanish for years but never quite “got it”. This podcast has been the best thing for me - they break apart sentences, explain why things are the way they are and really dig into the fundamentals. This podcast has really transformed and accelerated my Spanish comprehension. Love it!!

It’s great!

I love this podcast. I think it’s better than the Duolingo podcast because they translate sentence by sentence after you listen to an entire convo in Spanish. Keep up the great work! I’m learning so much

Fabulous learning tool!

I absolutely love Coffee Break Spanish. I was determine to find an affordable way to learn more Spanish, and this was one of the best podcasts I found. Mark is fantastic at pacing and explanations, especially of tricky tenses and words. He also dives right in teaching important phrases you would want to know when traveling in a Spanish speaking country. Another plus? I am traveling to Spain, and I enjoy that he teaches primarily in a Castilian accent. He always makes sure to teach the Latin American pronunciation, too, just in case his listeners are traveling elsewhere. If I subscribed to his bonus content, I’m sure I would be doing even better, but I have fit this daily dose of Spanish into my busy life easily. I highly recommend listening to the podcasts in order, unless you are already an intermediate learner.
