As I continue learning Spanish, this podcast was been the perfect supplement to practice my learning and comprehension. Keep it up!

Spanish stories is great idea because it’s really hard to find long Spanish passages to listen to, targeted for spanish learners. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it past a couple of minutes. Many of the words are not pronounced properly, at all. Too bad because it’s a good idea left wanting.

Brilliant idea. Stories are great. Accent can be distracting. It’s not horrific but it’s an Americanized accent of Spanish.

This podcaster should leave the language learning podcasts to people who can pronounce Spanish words properly. This woman speaks with one of the most anglicised sounding Spanish accents I have ever heard. Not ideal for learning from.

I really tried to like it. Nothing wrong with the podcast except for the accent. Why anyone would think it a good idea to teach Spanish in a very valley girl American accent is beyond me.

I have been working hard for a couple of years trying to teach myself Spanish. I have learned a lot of vocabulary. But really had a problem understanding people as fast as they spoke. I am still working on that, but about a month ago I found this podcast, and it seems to be exactly what I needed...Read full review »

In absolutely love this. I really hate that I don’t use my Spanish anymore. This will really help me back into the practice of listening and translating.
Ms_ShortnSweet via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/22
Glad to find simple stories using a variety of topics and therefore a range of vocab and grammatical tenses. It is obvious that this is not a native speaker, but (granted that you do not use this as your only learning source) it is good for language learning to hear a wide range of accents. It is...Read full review »

Karen accent is super cringe

It’s so distracting to the message and as an English speaker learning Spanish, that must be saying something.
Bonicole via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/22
This was not only educational, but entertaining! I recommend it to anyone trying to learn Spanish and improve their listening interpretation. Two thumbs up! 👍🏻👍🏻

Thank you so much for u Taking your time and sharing your talent, professora!- a note to people bashing her accent- I have been to and conversed with Spanish speakers from all over the world. Like in the US, the accent is even different by the región. I know Mexicans who can’t understand Cubanos...Read full review »

I found your podcast today and heard the latest one, I want to learn Spanish and this is exactly what i was looking for! Thank you so much for taking your time to read it and making it easy to follow along!
Sparkleee55 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/22
The stories are written to be very comprehensible for someone with elementary Spanish under their belt. However, the accent is just so off I worry that student’s might have their ears attuned to her speaking. I listened to four stories and found that they ranged from decent to emotional to rather...Read full review »

I’m a Canadian french woman who once learned Spanish but abandoned it because the lessons where spoken too fast and I didn’t have enough comprehension of the language to continue but your stories are easy to follow and to understand. You speak slowly enough so I can hear and catch the sense of...Read full review »

I am learning on Duolingo and it’s helped my Spanish a little but I have a feeling this podcast will help me with real life situations please keep making more episodes

Who told this woman she could speak Spanish? Her accent is terrible, she sounds like every Ugly American. And if this were not enough, she also makes mistakes - in grammar, gender and probably other aspects that I didn’t listen long enough to uncover. If someone would have done a similar podcast...Read full review »

I am learning so much just by listening to this on my daily commutes to work. Thank you so much! Be on the lookout for a donation from me to “buy you a taco!” Lol Muchas gracias! Regarding her accent, she is actually making it easier for us to follow to get the basics. Also, it would be very...Read full review »

Her accent is pretty good, but clearly not native.
Jdhaiaooshdbb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/02/22
I listen to these stories every night when I wash the dishes. If it is helping me, it can help anyone. Bravo. Keep it up! Estupendo

Listening to her wonderful stories has helped my ability to comprehend conversation in español. Helped me exponentially!!!! Muy bien y mucho gusto, muchas gracias!! Yo comienzo mi día con Simple Stories in Spanish!!!

Well friends, I speak eight languages and am just now adding Spanish to that. As an experienced language learner I can assure you that listening to diverse sources, accents, voices etc actually aids learning, not hinder it. Add to that, that while she has an accent, her pronunciation as such is...Read full review »

if a leaner has intermediate reading/ writing skills, but is not accustomed to listening / conversing in Spanish, this podcast is a great resource.
DJCPA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/21
I’m still learning Spanish but this is hard to listen too. She tries to speak so clear and slow that you can’t understand what she’s saying if that makes sense. It’s almost like she’s not pronouncing words correctly. There’s no accent. As a beginner I’m gonna skip this one.
Veeoni via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/21
Just what I needed! Gracias. Your stories are tantas divertidas!!
Boogie_do via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/21
Good but they should have a sheet to read at the same time

I enjoy the level of Spanish in this podcast but the accent is incredibly off putting
Spartannugget via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/21
I am just learning Spanish and I like her act is the way it is because it helped me to understand it. I understand the stories better. Sure I know the word that she’s trying to say and to me it doesn’t detract from the story at all. I’m super enjoying this I hope you do a lot more of them.
Busy Mom-teacher-rancher-wife via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/21
Thank you so much
MariViste via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 09/09/21
The stories are fine, and I like that you can get the transcript if you want to. About the accent, it is a bit cringy at times, but I don’t want to put her down for it. I’ve always thought that my accent was bad, but hers is about the same as mine. For her to be an actual teacher of Spanish in...Read full review »
StephaFefa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/21
I’m trying to learn Spanish without anyone to speak Spanish WITH, so being able to listen to these stories tests my ability to understand it spoken. When I first started listening, it was quite frustrating, but after I got along in my course and listened again, I was stunned to find I could...Read full review »

If you are learning Spanish and are kind of in between beginner and knowing something this is the podcast for you. Thanks so much!

If you’re at the point in your Spanish where you feel like you’re starting to pick up a lot of vocabulary, understand sentence structures and some verb tenses, but are struggling with “hearing” - this is a great place to start. Está suficiente despacio a oir las palabras y entenderlos. A great...Read full review »
OFAP via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/21
This is just what I was looking for. I am not a great listener, so this is helping with my comprehension. The pace and clarity is also helpful because she enunciates well and does not speak too fast. I love this. I plan to keep listening and hope that this podcast continues on for a long time!
Anjuer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/21
A really great resource for beginning Spanish. Such enthusiasm and commitment from the tutor. Thank you.
Fabrickated via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/31/21
I’ve been looking for a great podcast like this to help me with my Spanish listening & comprehension skills for a while. All my Spanish learning is theoretical if I can’t understand the language when it is spoken. Most other apps are either way too advanced, way too easy, or way too boring....Read full review »
Di runner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/16/21
I really like the pace of the speaker. It’s not unrealistically slow, but at the same time it’s not so fast that it prevents me from hearing all the words. A great tool to continue learning your Spanish.
Jake - Tex via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/21
These stories are simple and fun. I’m not bothered that she has an American accent. Please please keep making these!
sklplt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/07/21
A huge comment is about the accent.. it’s not the best. But using it with other tools like Duolingo is great! It’s easy to understand, while teaching me new words. It’s a great stepping stone in learning Spanish.
koshea9ging via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/20
I have been searching a long time for the right audible Spanish for me. All the others were either too fast, or too many words I did not know. This one is perfect for me. The stories are interesting and there are still words I don’t know, which means I’m learning. Keep them coming. I’m a fan!

These Brothers Rock via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/20
I like that I can understand these stories and they make me feel as though I am actually absorbing Spanish I’ve been learning. But the accent is really bad.
anniebits via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/20
These podcasts are very helpful. I have found that most Spanish story podcasts are too advanced for me at this point and I get very frustrated. These podcasts are helping my listening comprehension immensely. These are simple but they still push me out of my comfort zone. I do hope that they...Read full review »
