Podcast of the Week: Butterfly Spanish
My podcast time in recent weeks has been largely devoted to listening to lessons on YouTube; I've been trying to restore my high school Spanish for several months now, using an app called DuoLingo on a daily basis and studying Madrigal's Magic Key to Spanish as well as Spanish Made Simple. One of my favorite Youtube channels for Spanish is hosted by a young woman named Ana. who is as personable as can be imagined. She teaches Spanish like she's in high school, talking to her friends and goofing off along the way.
Another interesting channel, Bueno Estonces, uses music to teach.
The publishers choose slower tempo songs that give viewers time to read the lyrics & translation posted on the screen, with grammar connections highlighted.
