This is a rather new addition to my podcast rotation, but definitely stands out.

As a lover of, well, mexican spanish, popular language, street speech and idioms, there’s some gold in here for sure.

5.) A Mi Aire Spanish Podcast by Alicia of the Podclub

A Mi Aire is another free podcast with included transcripts of conversations to read along, created by Paloma Bétrisey, of Madrid, Spain. I’ve definitely cracked into the archives on this one a few different times — it’s nice to find some new and refreshing content from time to time, even if the accent favors that of Spain.

From Website:

“A mi aire es un podcast de Alicia (Paloma) para estudiantes de español a partir del nivel A2/B1.”

 

5a.) The Teaching and Learning Spanish Blog Suggestions, Reviews and Resources

Radioambulante

 

RadioAmbulante is kind of like the “This American Life” of the Spanish Language radio. I’d say it’s geared towards more advanced spanish language learners (speakers, really), but you’re going to hear some amazing storytelling and interesting perspectives from latinos and spanish speakers from all around the world.

The show is just about a year old, they’ve already come a really long way, and are getting better and better with each podcast.

Unfortunately, you can’t download these podcasts (only available to stream from their website…or you can buy one of their premium products), but I consider them to be some of the best out there, as they have audio with native speakers from every major spanish speaking country and you can learn a great deal about the countries and cultures that represent the Spanish Language. And it’s right in line with my own podcast, I think that’s why I like it so much…

From the website:

“In these podcasts we’ve collected interesting insider information about the Spanish speaking countries of Latin America to give you an impression of the language and culture. Native speakers of each Spanish American country – each with the corresponding accent and dialect of the country – hold interesting conversations with a Spanish person about their country. There is a podcast for every Spanish-speaking Latin American country.”

The downside is that you have to create a free account to access the audios, but her strength is that she covers a lot of different, off-the-cuff, unconventional language concepts and topics, and tends to do it differently than anyone else I found. Def worth checking out.

    Wow, brilliant list! I didn’t realise how much was out there!

    Thank you very much!

      Yo yo Emma B! Thanks for the comment, sista. I’m glad you find the list useful. There’s gold out there!!!!! You just gotta get creative with the search (and be a devout spanish nerd). Gracias por venir!

  6. Telenovela Junkie March 7, 2013 at 6:31 pm #

    I would also add DramaFever (www.dramafever.com/latino) – they have a lot of spanish Telenovelas with English subtitles, all episodes for free. Great for practicing listening comprehension.

  7. Online Spanish Course March 17, 2013 at 12:22 am #

    Fantastic list – please update as you go – your site is bookmarked and will be shared with my students.

    Keep up the good work!

    Forgot to add this link – a list of free TV links in Spanish: http://howlearnspanish.com/2010/08/list-of-best-sites-to-watch-spanish-tv/

  9. Todd August 3, 2013 at 10:39 am #

    Thanks for the list. Here is another

    http://www.spanishlistening.org

    The site has over 300 videos of native speakers with quizzes, captions and vocabulary

  10. james September 28, 2013 at 6:58 pm #

    http://www.youtube.com/user/Vocabuflash is a great one. We are and will always be free.

  11. www.kirmes-werkel.de October 6, 2013 at 2:08 am #

    Great information. Lucky me I recently found your site
    by chance (stumbleupon). I’ve book-marked it for later!

  12. Jeremy Williams October 28, 2013 at 7:54 pm #

    I’d add http://soncritores.blogspot.com.es/

    It’s a daily post in Spanish about writing, creativity, getting a novel written.

    Short, witty articles.

  13. Mike November 4, 2013 at 11:54 am #

    Wow such a thorough and long list! I’d add BRIC Language Systems to the list too though.

  14. Mark Reichard January 21, 2014 at 12:49 pm #

    This is a great, very comprehensive list. I’ll add a link to it on my Spanish language resources page. Please consider adding the verb drills tool on http://www.doityourselfspanish.com.

  15. craig Jull January 28, 2014 at 2:01 pm #

    http://www.121spanish.com/resources has many interactive learning exercises and videos free.

  16. Peter February 13, 2014 at 1:31 am #

    I love the free BBC course.

  22. Armando September 12, 2014 at 5:15 am #

    http://www.spanisharea.com is a new site for learning Spanish with articles on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. There is also a variety of exercises for practising the different skills.

    I hope you enjoy it!

  23. A Bex October 20, 2014 at 3:09 am #

    Hola and thanks for the list 🙂

    I have found lightspeed spanish to be an excellent resource. You can watch their videos on youtube and download the podcasts on itunes. They are great for explaining tricky subjects and although you have to pay to get the worksheets the free stuff has been absolutely invaluable to me, 100% recommend them to learners at all levels.

    Gracias 🙂

    Hello,

    I just came across your article and it really brings a ton of information, good job.

    http://www.podemospodcast.com/

    It is new and very useful

  26. Álvaro Branco January 20, 2015 at 4:18 pm #

    I’d really recommend the Podcast Notes in Spanish.

    They have free Beginner to Advanced levels, spoken by a native Spanish woman and his British husband who also speaks Spanish.

    It really amazed me! You really should try it!!
    The only downpoint is that the transcriptions are paid, but all the audio is free and they really worth. 🙂

  27. jon schroeder February 14, 2015 at 9:29 am #

    light speed spanish. husband and wife team out of england. really really good!!!

  28. Josh May 31, 2015 at 7:44 pm #

    Wow, that is a good list. I’ve used NotesInSpanish and Destinos when I was learning early on. The latter is a bit dated now, and I think NiS has stopped producing.

    I learnt Spanish in Argentina and was inspired to set up http://www.learnargentinianspanish.com which gives listening practice for (advanced) learners of Spanish – particularly if they want to get used to the Argentine accent.

  29. Cosme Corona July 13, 2015 at 2:42 pm #

    Nice blog, Thanks for sharing your information about learning, Reading, Writing, and speaking Spanish. I have been studying long time through online.

  30. LanguageLearner September 14, 2015 at 1:35 am #

    Wow what an awesome list! Very informative. I’ve used Yabla when I first started and I think it’s awesome.. I recently came across one called Gritty Spanish from http://www.grittyspanish.com. I know it’s a funny name, I have been using it for wks! It’s really crazy tho, very gritty indeed, having a heck of a time with it.. This was one long list lol..

  31. Erika October 11, 2015 at 8:27 am #

    Very useful resources, I am also using a lot of articles here to study Spanish: http://blog.lingolistic.com/english/learn-spanish

  32. Suzy December 10, 2015 at 6:04 pm #

    Hey there — AWESOME list! I’d also like to add the TakeLessons Blog to the list: http://takelessons.com/blog/learn-Spanish. We publish guides, articles, and resources — including grammar guides and tips for learning — written by Spanish tutors across the nation.

  33. Julio January 26, 2016 at 6:57 pm #

    newidioma.com is good for learning Spanish for conversation and travel. You can role play situations that you would only encounter in a Spanish speaker country.

    Also there is great audio to improve your listening skills in conversations likely to happen while traveling.

  34. Yeside March 24, 2016 at 9:59 am #

    Looking for a good Intermediate/advanced TV/Video series which is the next level up from Mi Vida Loca and Destinos.
    Suggestions?

  36. Pete June 17, 2016 at 2:41 am #

    Great article!

    Can I add another to your list of resources for those wanting to learn different sorts of Spanish? It is this blog (http://blog.colombianspanish.co/) which explains to foreigners the slang and expressions used by Colombians in their daily lives. Many thanks.

  37. Rein June 22, 2016 at 1:34 am #

    I really liked studying Spanish at Íbero in Buenos Aires because of the chilled out atmosphere in the school. The teachers were awesome and really knew how to keep things interesting in the small classes. Also the school organized many opportunities to socialize with fellow students/travelers. These are only some of the many reasons to choose Ibero as the place to learn Spanish! Rein from Holland. http://www.iberospanish.com
