I discovered this podcast looking for something I could listen to while stuck in traffic and I really really enjoy it!
The repertoire between Hector and Catriona is awesome but I feel like it’s scripted. How can the topics transition smoothly.
I think you should be transparent with your listeners and not say Catriona is a “total beginner” and title this podcast “zero to hero” because Catriona is definitely not a zero nor a total beginner. For instance, she already knows how to roll her “R’s” perfectly and she has done this from episode 1. Also, she speaks Spanish from Spain since she says “Franthes”. A beginner wouldn’t pronounce “Frances” like this. I’m on episode 8 and Hector is saying “corro” and “Coro” and she already knew what they meant right away. Her pronunciations are perfect and she always “guesses” right at what something means and tries to play it off by giggling like a little school girl. Even though Catriona isn’t a beginner, she really is a good host and helps us understand Spanish from a different perspective (non native).
Other than that, I think the show is truly wonderful and Hector is a great teacher and . The show covers things that make you understand why things are said and how they are said. It helps me with verb conjugations as well. It has reinforced what I have learned in the Babbel app and btw Babbel is the best language app out there! I hope you continue making more episodes and more frequently.
