Meet Robert, Coffee Break Spanish learner

Tell us who you are, where you live, your nationality and how long you’ve been learning a language with us.

My name is Robert. I live in New Zealand. I am a kiwi. I purchased Coffee Break Spanish some time ago. It is only recently after listening to Coffee Break Co-pilot that I came to really realise how much a good podcast can help you learn another language when you use them correctly.

What experience have you had speaking and learning other languages?

I have never studied language in a language school. I have used online courses and tutors through online services such as Italki and Verbling.

What are your favourite memories of learning a language?

My favourite memory of learning a language with Coffee Break Spanish is learning how to speak correctly in Spanish.

Where would your ideal coffee break be, and with whom?

My ideal coffee break would be with a friend drinking a coffee in a cafe in Colombia.

What’s the best language-learning tip you have found works for you?

Watching the video first, then listening to the audio followed by making your notes using the helpsheet and finally listening to the bonus audio. I have been able to work this into my daily routine and create a constant no stress learning routine.
