Make learning Spanish an everyday routine. That way you will improve without even noticing it. A good way to train your ear and enhance your comprehension skills is by listening to a podcast in Spanish. The universe of podcasts is so vast that you can find one about anything you are interested in.
In this article, we recommend a few of them. These podcasts are made by native speakers so, maybe sometimes you will notice that the speaking might be too fast for your language level. But, that’s part of the practice: you can stop the audio and hear the tricky part as many times as you need. They have different ranges of lengths, from two minutes to two hours. Short podcasts are great for beginners.
