|Maybe 2 years ago, one of my online students (Alaric, ˇhola y gracias!) told me about ChinesePod, and that they had just launched SpanishPod. He used ChinesePod, as he also speaks Chinese. |
And few days ago, these things happen, I "discovered" this new SpanishPod.
Basically, these pods help you practice and learn. You can find lots of podcasts, but I've found out SpanishPod is really serious with what they are doing.
But, in case you have never heard about it, I'll tell you how it works:
Their method is based, as they say in their site, in four points: "Listen, review, practice and Reinforce". In orden to follow these four steps, they offer online .mp3 lessons you can listen to on their web or maybe you'd prefer to download them and listen to them whenever and wherever you want.
Their second step is "reviewing" something you can do when you download the .pdf daily lessons where you'll find the dialogues, translations and more acivities which will help you review and learn.
And... what about the Practice? Ok, you can learn a lot of grammar, vocabulary, expressions, etc. But you need to practice, and that's why SpanishPod offers practice sessions with native speakers.
And finally, "Reinforce" what you have learn in previous lessons, using flascards and concetration games.
On my opinion, this is an excellent method for all those wanting to learn / practice Spanish.
They have a free option and other 4 options where you have to pay.
Right now they offer one week free trial, where you'll have access to several tools, like Expert Teacher Instruction, Daily Lesson Podcasts, or Speaking Practice.
So, you can freely try it and if you like their method, subscribe to any of their non-free options.
