Best Shows for Learning Spanish

Many people ask me, “What is the best show for learning Spanish?” and I always have a hard time giving them an exact answer. I’ll explain why and provide you with some of my favorite shows for learning Spanish.

When someone asks me which is the best show for learning Spanish, the first thing I do is direct them to our first blog post about this topic: 5 Steps for Picking the Best Show for Learning X Language (languagetvclub.com). A show in Spanish that might work for one person may not work well for another. There are several reasons for this.


One reason is that these two people may be on completely different levels in the language and may be working toward different goals. For example, one person may favor learning everyday vocabulary, whereas one would like to learn more technical vocabulary or slang.


There are also a lot of shows in Castilian (Spain) Spanish and many shows in Latin American Spanish and which show you choose may depend on which you’re learning. Some shows contain more heavy accents and regional dialects that may be hard for a beginner to understand. These are just some of the reasons why I can’t provide you with exactly which shows are the BEST for learning Spanish, but I can give you some insight from my own experience.
