Sometimes, we are unable to commit time to take Spanish lessons, and we try to study Spanish grammar textbooks and follow some websites to learn by ourselves, but we give up and feel demotivated because we don’t find a good way to learn Spanish. There are other methods to engage yourself in language learning.

Even if you are taking Spanish lessons, these alternatives are the perfect way to complement your classes and improve your listening and increase your vocabulary. A TV Serie is a great resource to help you on your Spanish journey.




  • At any time and in a relaxing environment.
  • Immerse yourself in the Spanish language and culture!
  • Improve your listening skills, pronunciation, rhythm and learn new vocabulary.


It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner or advanced in Spanish, I have curated some series from Netflix, you may be surprised to not find Narcos on this top to learn Spanish, but you must have an advanced level to understand the Colombian jargon. Choose those according to your interests, level or needs.

Don’t panic and take it easy if you don’t understand the full content or you understand nothing at all! You also can use Spanish or English subtitles.
Being in touch with the language regularly will help you to assimilate Spanish sounds, and get used to it! Enjoy it! 🙂
