    Fun and Addictive
    I love Marco - the host - and I have never learned so much - way more than an app will ever teach you! Addictive and entertaining and educational all in one!

    Not a beginning Spanish student but would recommend it to one
    I have learned a lot of additional tips from this show and enjoy reviewing the basics so I can have a better foundation and advance my Spanish. Marco is a great host and I enjoy his explanation for why we say things like that in Spanish.

    Great for Building Vocabulary
    This podcast is great for building vocabulary. Doesn't necessarily deal with grammer but that is available on other podcasts.

    Thank You Marco!
    Love listening to this podcast as Marco es MUY AMABLE, AGREDABLE, encouraging, and positive. Great to hear a proper accent to model speaking off of, and to learn language nuances from a native speaker. Gracias, Marco! Estoy muy agradecida.

    Perfect for teachers
    As a teacher and future ESL teacher, I am always needing listening/speaking practice to improve and continue learning Spanish because I want to be able to communicate and help all of my students. I love that there are episodes based around conversations in the classroom. So glad I found this podcast!

    This podcast is awesome for beginners. I’ve been learning Spanish off and on for years I and am listening to this podcast to prepare for a trip to Mexico. It’s helping me remember vocabulary and practice shaping my mouth and brain to use a Spanish accent again. Thank you!
  • ImogenWyatt
    Good supplement
    This is a good supplement when you’ve already been learning Spanish with other resources. It’s easy to follow and also has show notes which include the practice dialog.

    I live in the USA and am learning Spanish to better serve my Spanish speaking patients and nothing has helped me quite like this podcast to clear up so many confusions. I’m listening to it the third time over it’s just excellent! Thank you

  • Israel-USA
    Excelente Aplicación
    This podcast has been helping learn Spanish. It is an easy way to listen and learn while on the go. I use apps as well but this is the best way to learn, next to actually going to Spanish speaking country and being immersed. Thank you! Muy bien gracias.
  • akbdbf eosjbdbdnkd
    Wonderful podcast!
    Hola! I work in the construction industry and realized how useful Spanish speaking would be to me (and my resumè 😆). My brother ,(who is a bit ahead of me in learning Spanish) recommended the Duolingo app which is a good app and I still use. However, like many others have said in the reviews for LatinELE podcast. Marco really breaks down words and explains grammatical differences as well. He also explains a beginner way to say something and a fluent way to say it (by dropping the subject). Thank you so much LatinELE podcast for the great work you do! Hopefully sometime soon I can speak with a native speaker once I have studied a little more. Buenos noche mi amigos
  • SomosV
    Español para principiantes con explicaciones claras y sencillas en inglés y español, con dos variables Latinoamericanas, Chile y Colombia. Excelente. Estaba buscando audios con las variables de América para un estudiante estadounidense y este es muy bueno. Me suscribo ya y espero muchos más episodios! A trabajar compañeros!
  • Hoogiechoochoo
    Excellent introduction to Spanish
    ¡Que fantástico! Este podcast es exactamente que he estado buscando! This podcast is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Marco takes time to stress and explain the way different languages shape the way you view the world. This, to me, is the most difficult part of learning a new language. If you made flash cards and learned all the conjugations of the 10,000 most used verbs and learned the most common 10k nouns and adjectives, but didn’t understand the difference in worldview, you would still have a long way to go. For instance: hace frío, cómo te llamas, te quiero, me gusta, and countless others. Marco does an excellent job of explaining those differences and works to get you thinking about different ways to express the same meaning without simply searching for a literal translation.

    Top Notch for Beginners and brush up
    I’ve listened to a lot of Spanish for beginner podcast, and I love LatinELE. The topics are relevant, full of great examples and wonderful tips. The length of the program is perfect and the host comes full circle to make both grammar and vocabulary accessible. A must have for all beginner + students. Mil gracias
  • Rjhkhjszvbh
    Wastes way to much time with intros
    I shouldn’t have to skip three minutes into each podcast to blow past pointless audio, ads, and whatever else the author puts here. I’m here to learn Spanish, not to have my time wasted.
  • PoeticKetchup
    The best
    This is by far the best beginner guide to learning Spanish. I’ve been looking for the right podcast for a while now and Latin Ele seems to be just the right one for me. Thank you
  • Dgfgyuchgddfg
    Finally a beginner Spanish podcast that I enjoy listening to! Thanks so much!
  • KatSimpson212
    Wonderful resource for homeschooling!

  • blusanders
    Me gusta this podcast!

  • zebraspring
    Fantastic Teacher
    Is there a way the piano in the background could be turned off? It is hard to focus on the Spanish. It makes it difficult to concentrate.
  • Sex workers are people too
    The best!
    I love this podcast. You should do one on words at the bank.
  • MrTwinkles12
    Very good
    Very good for beginners to start learning. I suggest that you replay the episodes to drill it into your head.
  • Chelsotheboss
    Best Spanish lessons I have found!
    ¡Hola! Marco does an amazing job at teaching the very basics of language in a way that can be clearly understood! He truly teaches the core concepts of linguistics so you can learn quickly and build off of those essential conjugations and phrases! I took Spanish 1-4 in high school and I have had a few Spanish speaking friends and family members, so I have always been able to understand the language better than I can actually speak it! Marco has helped me remember and practice those essential core concepts so that I can respond and speak with other native Spanish speakers! If you are a beginner, intermediate, or almost fluent but not native speaking, this podcast is number one for learning, practicing, and honing your Spanish speaking skills! I have recently started pursuing a career in criminal psychology and I have realized how useful and IMPORTANT bi-lingual and multi-lingual skills are in the world. ¡ especialmente en américa! He also has these lessons on Spotify for free! Highly recommended! ¡Graciás, Marco!
  • Roses333777
    Great podcast
    I am using an app to learn Spanish but it lacks the ability to have me verbally practice. This podcast is perfect for allowing me to verbally practice. The presenter is awesome. His lessons are great. Thank you!!!
  • Kayce Morgan Taylor
    Great for workouts
    I am getting a lot out of this podcast. The narrator is easy to listen to and communicates well.
  • Reviews4U04
    Great Supplement to Learning
    I’ve been very pleased with this podcast so far. I appreciate that each episode focuses on a new topic and includes new vocab/verbs and a practice section at the end. I also find the explanations easy to understand. Thank you!
  • Andrea - Entrepreneur
    Clear Concise and Easy to Learn
    If you are looking to learn Spanish or in my case relearn Spanish at the beginner level this podcast does the job. Each lesson covers new vocabulary, verbs and short phrases. I’m a fan. Thank you!
  • Pablo es El Jefe
    Marco Is a Great Host
    There are endless options for learning a language now, and trying, then using more than one of them is useful. That said, I consider Marco’s enjoyable banter a cornerstone of my efforts. Thanks, Marco!
  • src2243
    Very very beginner - I am enjoying it!
    Never took a day of Spanish in my life but have always lived in TX. Now, in my 30s, I am attempting to learn Espanol and have incorporated this podcast into my self taught curriculum. I like how enthusiastic and fun Marco is, and how he talks about what is the conventional way of saying things. Looking forward to continuing by Spanish journey with him.
  • bloodywarrior123
    So useful!!!
    I have been wanting to learn to speak Spanish forever, my dad has always told me how useful it is since it is the second most widely spoken languages in the United States. I was never motivated to learn though, and I didn’t want to ask my dad for lessons. This is perfect! I get free lessons and Marco explains everything perfectly. I already knew a little bit from what I’ve picked up over the years but even the first episode taught me things I didn’t know! I would definitely recommend this podcast to anyone reading. Thank you so much for teaching us, and thank you for being so considerate!!
  • nyflva

    Learning A Lot!
    I am not a beginner but just needed something to listen to in Spanish that I would easily understand (training my ear). I am very surprised and pleased to be learning new things at this beginner level! Marco, you are a very good teacher and I hope to hear many more podcasts from you! Thank you for the work you do! I look forward to checking out your YouTube channel as well.
