Once you get through the first few lessons the hosts start conversation and talking way too fast, without stopping and explaining in English exactly what they are saying. I wasn’t able to follow any more. Really would love for them to have spoken much slower and stop to explain everything.

Hi, I am a trota beginner at learning a Jew language and this podcast was great for me to hear some Spanish used in conversation. I wish there were more seasons as it’s a perfect companion to the Babbel beginner Spanish courses.

I think podcasting would be a great way for listeners to get a better grasp on foreign languages. It also seems like the format of this particular podcast is perfect for learning. Hope to see more episodes!

I discovered this podcast looking for something I could listen to while stuck in traffic and I really really enjoy it! The repertoire between Hector and Catriona is awesome but I feel like it’s scripted. How can the topics transition smoothly. I think you should be transparent with your...Read full review »

Only 3 episodes in but I enjoy this podcast and think it’s a great supplement to the app to make certain phrases and concepts stick. Also, Hector’s voice is sexy. Lol.

Just listened to episode 1. It is extremely helpful. I learned a lot and the episode was timed perfectly. I listened to it while I styled my hair 😉.

Keep them coming as this only scratches the surface

The hosts have great rapport and their explanations are excellent.

What I really like about this podcast is that they explain reasons behind things in the language, which helps me remember things. I studied Spanish back when you did nothing but memorize and that’s not how I retained language. Great job!!

I have listened to the first episode and I really enjoyed it. I hope it is this way till the end.

I enjoy listening to Catorina and Hector converse and solidify some learning. The podcast is helpful and is something I look forward to. Please make more episodes featuring the future and past conjugations, and more! I’d like to have the duo with me through this Spanish learning journey!

Very straight forward and well done you both have nice voices pronunciation is good and the conversation is a good ice breaker

The girl Catriona is called “a total beginner” but she is not. Intermediate, yes, but she talks too fast, in both English and Spanish . I Was hoping to listen/ learn with a beginner.. your promo is misleading.

The music after every segment is nauseating.
haines819 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/22/20
I am so excited to have found this podcast! It’s educational, funny and sweet! I am a newbie and have the same goals as Katrina and enjoy learning with her. Hector is a great teacher and even when there are words and phrases I may already know I find he teaches me new tips, tricks and cultural...Read full review »

Very useful podcast to reflect on the basics in the Spanish language. Also good for pronunciation.
xiljabrouwer via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 04/06/20
I really like this podcast. The “theme music” at the start is great, it has good tips, it’s like I don’t even need to use the actual app! And since they focus on one topic at a time, that helps the learning a lot more. Héctor and Catriona can really draw your attention and I think this podcast...Read full review »

I am enjoying this podcast however I do find some of Catrina’s mannerisms a bit annoying. It’s like she will just start laughing or chuckling like a pubescent schoolgirl when she’s trying to say a phrase which shows her insecurity or lack of self confidence. She used to do this in the other...Read full review »
love it it is so amazing via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/20
Thanks for your podcast!)
OksankaSQRT via Apple Podcasts · Ukraine · 03/22/20
I’m enjoying the podcast along with the app. I struggle with hearing bc of the speed of the language as well with conjugations and the multi-variations of word/use. She’s either a quick learner or the podcast airing doesn’t reflect her lesson dates! Hector is a great teacher...

I’m one mont in to my Babel subscription and found this podcast in the app. I really enjoy Catriona and Hector and they’ve been helpful as an accessory to the app. I only wish there was a worksheet or something along those lines to accompany each episode to help with understanding because they...Read full review »

I’m 10 months into learning Spanish and found helpful tips in these podcasts. I’m having difficulty speaking Spanish though I’m accelerating reading Spanish. Thanks for this great podcast. More episodes please!
knight-jeff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/20
Four episodes in and I feel like I’ve made a good start in Spanish. A lot of fun!
johni1984 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/17/20
Beginning Spanish with discussions in English. Catriona has many of the same questions I do, and her crisp Scottish accent is lovely on the ears. Hector is a gentle instructor. Enough repetition that things seem to stick. Thanks so much for this podcast.

The learner is not helped at all by a supposedly experienced Spanish speaker. Tried a few but there are better podcasts available.
