A Zero To A Hero: Learn Spanish!

Reviews For A Zero To A Hero: Learn Spanish!

The hosts have great rapport and their explanations are excellent.
What I really like about this podcast is that they explain reasons behind things in the language, which helps me remember things. I studied Spanish back when you did nothing but memorize and that’s not how I retained language. Great job!!
I enjoy listening to Catorina and Hector converse and solidify some learning. The podcast is helpful and is something I look forward to. Please make more episodes featuring the future and past conjugations, and more! I’d like to have the duo with me through this Spanish learning journey!
Very straight forward and well done you both have nice voices pronunciation is good and the conversation is a good ice breaker
The girl Catriona is called “a total beginner” but she is not. Intermediate, yes, but she talks too fast, in both English and Spanish . I Was hoping to listen/ learn with a beginner.. your promo is misleading.
The music after every segment is nauseating.
I am so excited to have found this podcast! It’s educational, funny and sweet! I am a newbie and have the same goals as Katrina and enjoy learning with her. Hector is a great teacher and even when there are words and phrases I may already know I find he teaches me new tips, tricks and cultural standards. I have already learned so much and have a smile on my face the entire time listening to my new friends! Thank you and keep it up!
I really like this podcast. The “theme music” at the start is great, it has good tips, it’s like I don’t even need to use the actual app! And since they focus on one topic at a time, that helps the learning a lot more. Héctor and Catriona can really draw your attention and I think this podcast can really boost your Spanish. I would definitely recommend this podcast for any Spanish learners.
I am enjoying this podcast however I do find some of Catrina’s mannerisms a bit annoying. It’s like she will just start laughing or chuckling like a pubescent schoolgirl when she’s trying to say a phrase which shows her insecurity or lack of self confidence. She used to do this in the other podcast too, and I felt the same way. It doesn’t give me much confidence she has conviction in trying to learn the language (maybe thus the title), but Hector comes to the rescue as the pro.
I’m enjoying the podcast along with the app. I struggle with hearing bc of the speed of the language as well with conjugations and the multi-variations of word/use. She’s either a quick learner or the podcast airing doesn’t reflect her lesson dates! Hector is a great teacher...
I’m one mont in to my Babel subscription and found this podcast in the app. I really enjoy Catriona and Hector and they’ve been helpful as an accessory to the app. I only wish there was a worksheet or something along those lines to accompany each episode to help with understanding because they move through it so quickly. I listen and read-listen every morning as I get ready for work where I can practice use with Spain’s speaking customers. But because the podcasts don’t really correlate with my app lessons, I find I still struggle with conjugation. A correlating worksheet would be really helpful!
I’m 10 months into learning Spanish and found helpful tips in these podcasts. I’m having difficulty speaking Spanish though I’m accelerating reading Spanish. Thanks for this great podcast. More episodes please!
Beginning Spanish with discussions in English. Catriona has many of the same questions I do, and her crisp Scottish accent is lovely on the ears. Hector is a gentle instructor. Enough repetition that things seem to stick. Thanks so much for this podcast.
