Bienvenidos al ESpeak Spanish Podcast!
Welcome! The ESpeak Spanish Podcast will be a resource that students of Spanish will be able to use to improve their Spanish in an interesting, engaging way! Here Shandon explains what the episodes will be like: they will almost completely be in Spanish to give you as much practice as possible, but English will be used at times to explain difficult concepts, so this podcast will be best for native English speakers who want to learn Spanish. Once again, welcome to the podcast and we'll see you in the first episode!
