Starting in our tier SALSA (5 USD), we release one bonus episode each month.

  • Leer es chido – A series of 15 short episodes about a real-life article for you to read and learn new words
  • Advanced episode – A faster, more challenging episode to take your Spanish to the next level.


Every month, we publish an audio-only, patreon-exclusive advanced episode. This episode is carefully designed to make it a native-like experience, with background music and a much quicker pace. Don’t worry, we include a vocabulary guide and an interactive transcript for you to follow along.
