HOW TO LEARN AND PRACTICE SPANISH WITH SERIES?

Learning Spanish with series can be fun, that’s way in this post I teach you different options you have to get the most out of this resource.

1. CHOOSE A SERIES IN SPANISH OF THE GENRE YOU LIKE THE MOST AND START LEARNING SPANISH

Choose your favorite series to learn Spanish

 

You can go to your search bar in you app and write a Spanish speaking country such as: Colombia, Chile, España, Mexico, etc.

Then, focus on browsing and checking what options do you have. Try without fear and start watching series that catch your interest until you find something you like.

On the other hand, if you found it hard to decide you can check below some options you can search and check if they are available in your country so you can start to use series to learn Spanish.

 

2. START LEARNING SPANISH WITH SERIES BY PLAYING WITH CAPTION AND AUDIO OPTIONS AVAILABLE

Start by activating audio and captions in Spanish.

Then you can continue to read the captions while you follow the audio. This will help you improve you Spanish listening skills and to connect sounds and written words.

Another thing you can do is turn on the captions in English to connect Spanish words with its meaning in English.

TIP: If you are a beginner, the idea is that you get used to sounds and words in Spanish. Don’t panic if you don’t understand everything. With practice you will see that you will improve your understanding every day.

 

3. YOU CAN START BY WATCHING THE EPISODE FIRST IN ENGLISH AND THEN IN SPANISH

Improve your Spanish with series

 

This is an excellent option if it is a short episode, you can choose series with episodes of 20 to 30 minutes long.

First, watch the episode in your native language and then you can watch it again but with audio and captions in Spanish. Remember you can play with these settings as I teach you before.

4. YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE SERIES AND SEE IF IT HAS THE AUDIO AND CAPTIONS IN SPANISH

That’s correct, don’t limit yourself to watch only series in Spanish available in your country. Search for your favorite series or those that you enjoy watching and that you know by hearth. The important thing is that you can activate audio and/or subtitles in Spanish.

This way you can practice listening Spanish and this wouldn’t be a problem because you already know the plot or main idea of it.

Don’t forget that at the beginning it is not relevant if you don’t understand every word, the idea is that you train your skills daily and improving step by step.

 

5.REPEAT OUT LOUD AND TAKE NOTES

Another good option is to repeat and/or read out loud some phrases or words people say in the series. Doing so, you can imitate intonation and accent.

In addition, you can also analyze in what context these words has been used in the series and take notes to later be able to apply them in your day-to-day life.

 

6. ENJOY AND HAVE FUN WHILE YOU LEARN AND IMPROVE YOUR SPANISH WITH SERIES

Relax with series while learning Spanish

 

If you are just starting to learn Spanish and you want to do it stress free, simply look for a series you already know, get comfy with your favorite food or drink and spend some time just for yourself to enjoy learning Spanish.

Remember I told you before the important thing is that you have fun and practice Spanish in a relaxed and calm way.
