Many students wonder about different techniques to continue studying and practicing Spanish outside the classroom. One technique that is quite good and allows you to become familiar with the sound of the letters and the pronunciation of the words is: listening to a podcast.
That’s why I’ve made a list of the eight best podcasts to help you in your study sessions. Remember that these resources are only a complement to your sessions and do not necessarily represent a unique way to learn a language.
The best way to learn Spanish is to organize your studies with different complementary resources and with the help and guidance of a Spanish teacher. In this way you will be able to achieve excellent and fast results.
The app I like the most to listen to podcasts is Spotify. I always recommend it, because it is very intuitive to use and also suggests similar podcasts that could be interesting for you. Therefore, I recommend you to listen to all the programs in Spotify.
I hope this list will help you a lot in your studying sessions.

This podcast is for students of Spanish who already know some basic vocabulary because although they speak quite slowly, they don’t usually translate into English so if you are level A1 it might be a bit difficult at first. The free part you find on Spotify only lasts 5 to 8 minutes and if you want to listen to the whole program you have to go to their website and pay for the subscription.
