Default Notes in Spanish on iTunes - Favour!

Do you listen to any of our podcasts by downloading them from iTunes? If so we have a favour to ask. We'd love it if you could leave a review of the podcast on the appropriate page in the iTunes store. As more Spanish podcasts crop up, it would really help others to know if ours are any good or not!

You can access the iTunes store pages for your favourite podcast via these links (they only work if you have iTunes installed - you can also subscribe via these links at the same time if you like!):

Intermediate
Advanced
Notes in Spanish L!VE (videos)

Many thanks for your help! Ben and Marina

Consider it done. I will be only too happy to provide feedback (very favourable) about the podcasts. Keep them coming.

I'll make this a sticky, good idea.

Thumbs up ¡Por Supuesto!

Notes in Spanish es lo mejor que he encontrado en iTunes. Me encantaría recomendarlo. Voy a hacerlo esta noche antes de acostarme. He aprendido mucho mas aquí que en las clases tradicionales.

It is easy to leave a review on iTunes because Notes in Spanish are simply the best Spanish podcasts. I have listened all others available via iTunes and I have kept listening only Notes in Spanish.

Maybe I should paste this on iTunes?

I added my (glowing) reviews as well. I love your podcast! It really is by far the most effective Spanish-learning podcast out there and really enjoyable as well. I've finally got through all the intermediate and advanced ones and am sad to have run out of NIS to listen to. The beginner ones are also quite useful for revision, though. I had a horseback riding accident in April and I've been listening to the podcasts during physical therapy, which makes a very boring and somewhat unpleasant task a whole lot more fun. Thanks so much for creating this project!

I'm currently going through the NIS IB podcast and so far, I found it really great! Gave it 5 stars on iTunes Australia. Keep up the great work.

Default Podcasts?

Hi
I'm new to this forum. Could someone point me the right direction as to what these podcasts are called? Are they easy to find? What level are they at?

Thanks
Gav

Hola Ben y Marina,

Estoy novata con Notes in Spanish Intermediate. Había encontrado los podcasts en el red y empiezo a escucharlos sin comprar los transcripcións. Me les gustan mucho. Después de escuchar solamente, tomé la decision de comprar los transcriptións y los ejercicios. Estoy un poco decepcionada con los ejercicios. No hay muchos, y no están muy útiles.

Acabé de escuchar el podcast sobre el timo de Ben en Bangkok. Me disfrute de este cuenta por que mi esposa es joyero y compra piedras preciosas con frecuencia. Cuando el estaba joven y empiezo a comprar piedras el tenia experiencias parecidas.

Esta podcast fue especialmente útil también, por que Ben uso el pretorito del verbo en toda la cuenta así que pudo enfocarme en esto mientras escuché.

I have to switch to English, this is getting exhausting ! So, I have a suggestion for an exercise that might be helpful to others. It would be for me. In addition to supplying the transcript of the conversation you could create a cloze exercise. Are you familiar with this teaching strategy ? To create a cloze you leave out key words from a text. The student must supply the missing words. For example, in the case of Ben's Timo, you could omit all the preterite verbs so we students could fill in the blanks, then check our work against the full transcript. You could do the same for prepositions or nouns relating to the theme.

I hope you aren't offended. I enjoy your podcasts but I think your exercises fall a bit short. This would be one way to improve them.

Thanks for everything. I've been getting into the forum a bit and that's been fun too.

Keep up the good work,

Paula
