Podcast description:

Interesting descriptions from the podcaster who calls himself “Los Contertulios” that teach about the Spanish language in a very entertaining manner. The speaker captivates the audience through the whole event telling stories or reading poems or pieces of literature and talking about them. He speaks slowly and clearly and introduces the public to interesting facts about pronunciation, grammar, synonyms, acronyms and other topics. He also explains urban legends and popular traditions in Latin America. Although the podcast name sounds as if there are many people, there is always just one speaker talking. He talks in a conversational, easy manner and takes time to explain terms and to describe things. This podcast is very good to listen to. The podcast host is from México but he speaks in a neutral Spanish that is clear and very easy to understand.


A podcast about the Spanish language and its nuisances, sayings and popular legends. Very interesting to those wanting to learn more about the Spanish language, traditions and legends.
