What people are saying
"I love the Spanish Obsessed Podcasts. When I was working on my Spanish for a trip to Cuba they were the most helpful thing I did to prepare. I'm still at a low level but I want to focus on communication, so the lessons and support that Rob and Lis provide is perfect”
“I first encountered Spanish Obsessed about 18 months ago, when I knew very little Spanish, and since then have used it virtually every day. It has enabled me to progress, with very little effort beyond simply listening, from beginners' level to a point where I can have reasonably fluent conversations with native Spaniards. The Spanish it teaches is spendidly demotic and not at all the usual textbook stuff provided by other sources... You'll find Spanish extremely beautiful and, taught this way, not difficult for an English-speaker to pick up.”
“After enjoying learning Spanish in school I was still keen to get better, so I planned to become an au pair in Barcelona over the summer. Listening to the Spanish obsessed podcasts was the perfect link between classroom Spanish and understanding a natural, authentic conversation, and it absolutely helped me to survive and understand conversation in the real world!”
“I've found the Spanish from Scratch podcast invaluable. All of the episodes are fun and natural sounding, very easy to understand and the accompanying notes are just the right level of detail. This is my favourite "in car" resource for my commute to work.”
“I'm so grateful for Spanish Obsessed! I stumbled upon this site and podcast a couple of years ago and have listened ever since. It's a great way to absorb the beautiful Spanish language, and I love the myriad topics Rob and Lis talk about. The transcriptions are also very helpful. Through Spanish Obsessed I have relearned grammar I learned when I first started studying the language, and I have discovered new vocabulary, have learned about new cultures and places, and have picked up on very helpful grammar usage tips and rules. ¡Gracias a Rob y Lis por este podcast excelente!”
“Spanish obsessed is truly a great resource. Simply by listening to Rob and Liz I improved my level from A2 to B1, within a few weeks”
“ I've been studying Spanish for 2 years and am at an advanced level now. I have worked my way up from the beginner episodes to the advanced ones, and I love the podcasts and all the conversations. They are very natural. Spanish Obsessed really helped to improve my comprehension and to hear how a native speaks. It's particularly useful right now since Lis is from Colombia, and I'm traveling around Colombia at the moment. Rob and Lis introduce a lot of Colombian words and phrases and discuss Colombian culture. They also have native speakers on the podcast from different countries, so you can get a feel for different accents and cultures.”
“I have enjoyed listening to the conversations on a variety of interesting and useful topics presented by Rob & Liz. It is one thing to study Spanish grammar, but to listen to phrases and expressions used by fluent speakers especially in informal conversations adds an important dimension that cannot be duplicated in more formal grammar oriented lessons. I have found that reading or writing Spanish does not necessarily translate into the fluency that one may desire to achieve. However, listening to educated fluent and native speakers, then repeating the phrases or word order they have used has been very helpful.”
“I actually love Spanish Obsessed because it's so genuine, authentic and damn cute - it keeps me engaged because it's not so dry, and the two of you are adorable. So I actually want to listen, and this makes me learn much faster; it's not a bore, it's actually entertaining.”
“I love Spanish obsessed! The format and content is really accessible and interesting, and it is the first thing I go to when I need a refresher, or am feeling like I am getting rusty.”
“I loved Spanish Obsessed as soon as I listened to the first podcast. I'm a beginner Spanish learner and have been learning for about 3 months. I find the podcasts ideal for listening practice. New vocabulary is introduced slowly and then there's a chance to listen to it as part of a real life conversation. Rob and Lis also introduce phrases or vocabulary that you wouldn't necessarily find in text books and other courses. I highly recommend, I have learned loads already from them.”
