I have been helping my students improve their listening skills as well as learn more about people, topics and themes from your conversations on "Notes in Spanish". I ask students to listen with the intention of being able to summarize what they have learned and then I give them a short quiz to gauge their comprehension. In the past, I have purchased sets of transcripts to use to create the quizzes, but not for all of the podcasts.
I ﬁnd your podcasts really good for helping students improve their listening skills, in particular.
Many thanks again for all the wonderful feedback! - Ben and Marina, www.notesinspanish.com
