¿Netflix en español?

Dan-H24 October 21, 2015, 7:34 pm
I recently "dumped the dish" in favor of an OTA antenna, an Apple TV box, and a Netflix subscription. I see there is plenty of Spanish programming on Netflix, but I wonder if anyone has found any programs that are particularly suited for learning Spanish.
Thanks in advance,
Dan

Hi Dan.  I don't have Netflix right now, but I am thinking about it.  In the month since your post, have you found anything worthwhile in Spanish?

Sherri: sorry for the delay in answering. I've been off the grid in a Spanish speaking country for a couple of weeks, practicing the language in the best possible way.

Anyway, I can't point to a specific program that is as good as, say, the old Destinos series. I often tune in a telenovela for some listening practice. I also just finished watching the first season of Narcos, about Pablo Escobar. Unlike most English shows, the Spanish-speaking characters speak in Spanish to one another, with English subtitles provided.

You can get a free month of Netflix to try it out.

Feliz Navidad,
Dan

Cool. Which country did you hit this time? Did you experience much of a difference in your Spanish level from when you were in Cuba awhile back?

Steven: I was back in Cuba again. Can't seem to get enough of the place, although with the exponentially increasing tourism there it is starting to wear thin now.

I think my ability to communicate in Spanish improved a lot from last year. Whenever our fixer was not around to translate, I ended up being the designated translator and did pretty well. Last day there after a 7 hour wait at the airport, I was asked to tell an airport worker that we understood how overworked they were and that we appreciated their efforts. So, I repeated that to the woman in Spanish, then said to my colleague in English, "I hope I said that right." The Cuban woman looked up and said to me, in English, "You said it perfectly." Go figure.

Also, even considering their graciousness, my Cuban friends all remarked how my Spanish has improved.Read More

Hola mis amigos!
Wish I could visit a Spanish country, but just have to wait for God's timing.
We don't have Netflix, and hopefully never will have it. I've found just listening to old or familiar movies in Spanish, [when there is that language option], has proved very useful and that it helps one realize how much they have learned.
Hope this helps!
