Are you ready to take your Spanish to the next level? Do you want to learn all about Argentina? This site provides Spanish listening comprehension practice on a wide range of topics related to Argentina.

Who are we?

My name is Josh, I met Silvina back in 2007 during an extended stay where I studied castellano at the University of Buenos Aires. We spent some time in Australia and currently call New Zealand home. You will find out a lot more about us through listening to the podcasts.

While I was learning, I remember feeling frustrated at the limited amount of material available to hear people speaking in real conversations. So we’ve decided to create the podcasts to talk about Argentina, and also provide listening comprehension practice for those learning Spanish. We try to release a conversation on a different theme every fortnight.spanish-learn-argentinian-about-josh-silvina


Who is this site for?  

The podcasts are entirely in Spanish, so they are not for true beginners. Just like the real world, it’s up to you to keep up! Feel free to use the materials as you like. Check out my tips for learning Spanish too. Maybe you are a native porteño, and are just interested in the foreigner’s perspective of your country.

If you have any suggestions for topics you would like us to discuss, just let us know and we’ll try and fit them in. We can’t promise to meet all requests, but we’re always interested in new ideas to talk about.

  1. Hola Josh y Silvina,

    Me llamo Phil y soy de Auckland, Nueva Zelanda, estoy aprendiendo el Castellano. Acabo de regresar de mi gran viaje en Argentina el ano pasado, entonces tengo que seguir practicando el idioma. Tambien – tengo una novia de Buenos Aires, y por eso intento a mejorar el Castellano para cuando vuelvo.

    Queria decir, muchas gracias por las podcasts. Son muy muy util para mi situacion – porque como ustedes saben, es un poco dificil a practicar el castellano aca en Nueva Zelanda!

    Espero que hay mas podcasts – ya he escuchado a cada episodio dos veces! Avisame por favor cuando es la proxima! Tengo muchas ideas, si necesitas una tema jaja.



    Ademas – Ustedes estan ensenando el castellano aca en Nueva Zelanda?
