I highly recommend this podcast for beginning and intermediate learners.
    review on iTunes US, from Jubilada-46
  • I just started listening to Speak Spanish with Maria Fernandez and this is so refreshing. I have struggled in my Spanish language learning in the past few months. Maria’s podcast breaks it down to a simple way of learning in context and with realistic dialogs. She is able to keep my attention and I can’t wait to start practicing on my Spanish friends of what I have learned so far! ¡Muchas Gracias!
    review on iTunes US, from Preacher of the Gospel
  • A great way to learn Spanish. I listen in my car, while taking the kids to school. We used to hear the news, but learning a new language when commuting proved to be a much better choice. The kids repeat the drills with me, and have fun trying to imitate Maria’s accent. Excellent podcasts! Well done Maria ;)

It is so easy to fall back into saying vowels the English way, and having this podcast at my fingertips reminds me to review and remember. Incredibly helpful is the instruction of where to place your tongue to get the correct sound! The other lessons are full of extremely useful information also.

    review on iTunes Canada, from Survice (Alexander)
  • Really well produced podcast. Very clear pronunciation and great lessons & tips. I have learned a lot from this podcast, especially episode #085 The human body in Spanish. Maria has carefully thought out these lessons and I would recommend them highly. Because the lessons are short they can be listened to while commuting. They provide a great way to progress from beginner through to intermediate and advanced.

    review on iTunes US, from lilguhl
  • I have been listening to her podcasts for over one year. I enjoyed them so much that I have started to repeat the classes. Her approach of integrating the spoken language with vocabulary drills and grammar is refreshing. It makes it much easier to remember the basics. I liked the podcasts so much I purchased the “Learn Spanish at Your Own Pace” book and audio series. It is also great!

Are these the same lessons that were on your podcast?
Yes. These are the lessons that used to be on my podcast "Speak Spanish with Maria Fernandez". Continuing the podcast became unaffordable, that's why I'm now offering them to you in a bundle for a small price. With a bonus: there are some new video, audio and pdf lessons that are exclusive to this bundle :)

No. Once you've downloaded them, you can play them offline on any device you've got.

I've created these lessons for you to learn Spanish on the go. Wherever you are, you can play the listening and speaking drills, conversations, pronunciation exercises, verb drills, and learning tips. And you can read the pdf lessons.

How long is each lesson?
Most of the audio lessons are about 10 minutes long. There are a couple of 30-minute lessons, and a few very short ones. The video lessons are around 3 minutes long each, and there are two 30-minute videos.

Are the lessons for Castilian Spanish or Latin American Spanish?
Castilian Spanish. With my lessons you learn to pronounce Spanish with a Castilian accent.

How many Spanish courses do you offer?
I've created 3 Spanish courses: these Audio Lessons, my Book + MP3 Course, and my Online Course.

What’s the difference between these Spanish Audio Lessons and your Book + MP3 course?
These Spanish Audio Lessons are a set of 5 to 10-minute audio, pdf and video lessons you can play on the go. They focus on the most relevant issues of the Spanish language, but they're not a step by step course.

My Book + MP3 course course is a step by step set of 24 lessons that take you to an intermediate level. Each lesson contains: conversations, vocabulary, pronunciation practice, grammar, sentence building exercises, and four drills.

Tell me more about your Spanish Online Course
My Spanish Online Course is the interactive online version of my Book + MP3 Course. They both bring you the same lessons.

The interactive Online Course is on a subscription basis, and you need to be online to access it. My Book + MP3 course is a one-off payment, and you can play it offline, with no need to be connected to the web.
