Advanced Spanish with Spanish Obsessed

Advanced Spanish - lively and natural Spanish conversations around a range of engaging topics. Couple Liz and Rob (Colombian and English) share anecdotes, Spanish vocabulary, phrases, and much more in a series of real conversations. Rob's not a native speaker, so you can hear Liz correct him occasionally, as well as hear her crystalline Colombian Spanish. We also interview other guests, providing a range of different accents from all over the Spanish speaking world. Learn slang from various regions of Spain, Colombia, Mexico, and more. We update once to twice a week, so make sure that you subscribe using the button on the left. Also, check out our world of Spanish material, articles, and general Spanish love at SpanishObsessed.com!

Advanced 18: Spanish in the USA

The majority of visitors to Spanish Obsessed come from the USA. We talk about the rise of Spanish in the States! However, we don't have any first hand experience of this, so we would love to our American visitors' (or anyone else with experience in this!) opinions on the rise of Spanish in the land of opportunity!
