  1. Andrea, as usual your Spanish is very clear and easy to understand. However, Nate, in my humble opinion, does not speak very clearly, makes minor errors not related to the subject at hand and is at times hard to understand. Perhaps Nate should answer questions asked by you in Spanish and speak in English for comments and/or questions made to you.

    Also, started listening to the earlier podcast you made. The later ones have much better audio quality……

    Keep up the good work, really like your teaching method…..

    • Hi Timothy, first off thanks so much for listening to the Podcast. It means the world to us that you listen to the show and took the time to provide some positive and constructive feedback.

      A lot of people listen to the Podcast as it’s almost completely in Spanish so we won’t switch that. However, it’s a further reminder that we need to have Andrea correct me more and more as often times we get talking and she forgets to correct all my mistakes (corrects most, I believe).

      Thanks again and yes the audio quality does get much much better in the later episodes haha.

      Make sure to check out the Spanishland School Podcast if you like Andrea’s teaching as that one doesn’t include me. 🙂

  2. Muchas gracias por este podcast Andrea. Fue muy útil.
    Desafortunadamente, aunque vivo en Neuva York , no podré asistir el NYC meetup on 6/16 porque estoy en Polonia visitando a mi mamá hasta el próxima semana. Espero que en futuro puedo hacerlo.
    Que tengas un buena semana!

  3. What I was really try to say is, a student can only learn up to the level of the teacher. To have a non-native speaker trying to teach a foreign language may work at a lower level. But at the level ‘Españolistos’ is trying to maintain, I would rather hear clear, precise and correct Spanish. So I will try the teaching podcast that you recommended where Andrea speaks the majority of the time….

    Thanks for the suggestion……

  4. Hi Andrea y Nate, thanks very much for this , do you have a follow up listening to this, also what is KISS, one of the other students mentioned it

    • Hi Mike, we will have a followup Podcast for part 2 in the coming weeks. This weeks is a conversation with Miguel (Episodio 130). KISS represents keep it simple stupid.

  5. Muchisimas gracias por una excelente explicación!
    Era lo que necesitaba aunque sabia los casos 1ro y 4ro. Justo a tiempo.
