The topics are just what I need

I like listening to this when I take walks. It helps me get acquainted with the language before the AP Spanish Lang exam. Listening to them talk about kinda random things is helpful for the vocab and temas that might show up.

THANK YOU

This is such a great podcast. Ben has always been fluent but I couldn't believe how much more of a native he sounds like. It's more like a castellano with a touch of a british accent. I've been listening to this series for a couple of years now and i have to say this has helped me a ton with my language learning journey.

Highly recommended for Spanish language learners

I am a Spanish teacher for high school students. This is the podcast I recommend to all of my students when they are looking for something beyond just the textbooks and Spanish class. Additionally, upon returning to the States from living in Madrid I listened to these frequently keep my Spanish fresh and brush up on what I had forgotten. I highly recommend these at all levels!

One of the best

One of the best resources for learning Spanish I’ve found.I definitely recommend getting the transcripts and studying them well, it helps very much in learning new phrases and recognizing hard to distinguish words.I started with notes in Spanish Beginners and went all the way through Advanced and Conversations. I have a degree in Latin and Greek and have studied language from a strictly grammatical viewpoint. While an understanding of syntax (word order) and conjugation is extremely important, in a modern language it’s even more important that you develop your ear which this podcast does perfectly. The contrast between Ben and Maria is perfect, it offers both a native and learners experience at the same time. Also many resources break things down into English, often stopping the dialogue to do so. This is a mistake as it breaks the natural flow and rhythm of the conversation. Others have poor audio making it difficult to make out the words and no transcripts to make up for it.Not to mention that Ben and Maria are just a joy to listen to, they have a rapport that can’t be manufactured, they speak about relevant and interesting topics and the audio is crisp and clear.I listen to the podcast regularly and it helped tremendously when I was preparing for a trip to Peru two years ago.I would recommend this as absolutely an essential resource to anyone beginning or continuing with their Spanish studies.

Perfecto!

My favorite resource for keeping up with my Spanish. Ben and Marina are both excellent teachers with contagious enthusiasm. The conversational format is simple and natural, and the perfect length for listening while I make breakfast or drive to work. The topics are interesting- Yoga! Mindfulness! These are like conversations I have with friends in any language- a perfect practice that makes learning fun and relevant. Muchísimas gracias Ben y Marina!

Notes in Spanish for life

I’ve been listening to Ben and Marina’s podcasts for 10 years now, starting with the beginning level and moving up from there. I had taken some Spanish clases in school, but the material really gave me the motivation to start speaking with native speakers without fear. I went on to study Spanish at University, and now I am living in spain teaching English. I was excited to see this new “series” and still enjoy listening to the podcasts for cultural insight and vocabulary. I always recommend “Notes in Spanish” to friends who want to improve their fluency. Keep the content coming!

Volume Not Great

Love the idea and content discussed but as a Spanish learner, I have a really hard time hearing Ben when he speaks in a low tone and mumbles. Would really appreciate hearing him speak loudly and clearly :)
