This podcast is great. Ben and Marina have a unique teaching style that gives learners a peek into Spanish life. After not too long, I realized I wasn't translating in my head, but instead understanding Spanish! I just wish they had more episodes out there!!

These podcasts have been absolutely phenomenal, especially for those of us who just want to hear authentic Spanish in everyday conversations. I listen to them on the way to work which helps me to always be up-to-date on all the newest slag and idioms of the Spanish language.
