Paul Sheldon –
The advanced worksheets have helped with my Spanish hugely. I’ve dropped other learning techniques (text books) to concentrate my time on Ben and Marina’s NIS podcasts and accompanying worksheets which are educational, accurate and interesting. I would recommed them to anyone wanting to learn Spanish and tired of text books. If you are wanting to speak Spanish to Spanish people and not simply order cerveza then these worksheets are perfect.
Janet Kendrick –
I have improved with every lesson and the worksheets provide me with loads of extra practice. There is loads of work on them, a full transcription, and exercises which are really stretching me! There is so much in each worksheet that it can keep your interest for a good while. BRILLIANT!!!!
I learn Spanish as a hobby, started a few years ago first with a Finnish tutor and later with a native from Spain. Being just a hobby with a few lessons a year, I am very pleased to be able to use the language as much as I do today! I didn’t hesitate to purchase the whole package of Advanced Worksheets. The amount of material is surprisingly large. I have noticed already how the audio and worksheets together help to improve my every-day vocab for common, up-to-date issues.

The transcripts have provided me with a key to the content of the podcast which often whizzes by so quickly to the unrtained ear. It has enabled me to tune in to the way certain words and phrases are run together, and the inflection that is used, so that when I am involved in real conversation I am able to synthesise a higher volume of incoming Spanish at speed.
Alex Lee –
I realized that it was nearly impossible for me to study the Spanish being spoken in the streets, as people spoke fast, and I had a hard time understanding. I couldn’t ask people to stop and repeat every other sentence. Notes in Spanish was the perfect resource. You learn the Spanish being spoken in the streets, and with the worksheets, you can follow along and know exactly what’s being said.
Helen Bickell –
Me gustan mucho estas lecciones.
Ma Barbara –
The transcriptions were essential for my understanding of the conversations. I am a visual person. First I listen, then read the transcript, then listen with transcript, then I make a few notes. I received compliments on my Spanish. Thanks!
Sandy dixon –
These guys are amazing. I listen to their podcasts in the car and when at home I listen and read the transcripts.
It’s truly is the best way to break out of being intermediate to an average advanced.
Their context is interesting too and I love the colloquial stuff because let’s face it that what we need as learners.
Go for the whole enchilada because you won’t waste your money as there is nothing better out there.
I’ve been told I have a good Spanish accent I think it’s because I copy Marina ? thank you for that ??
thank you Ben and Marina and your team for your great work ???
Anne Crawford –
Love the transcripts and worksheets which have allowed me to jump up to another level in Spanish. Even my professor at uni has noticed the improvement.
Cara Wilson –
I can’t recommend highly enough Ben and Marina’s NIS – in fact I have indeed recommended it to many people I know learning Spanish as one of the best, if not THE best, resource I have come across! The conversations are always interesting – I have worked my way through the Gold and the Advanced packs and am now enjoying the conversations – and can honestly say there has never been a dull moment! The transcripts are such a valuable resource to accompany the conversations with a really useful quantity of new and interesting vocabulary with explanations. I love the fact that the topics are very relevant to life in Spain, and its culture and history. Highly recommended!
Jennifer Johnson –
I am a teacher of Spanish in the UK, and find these resources excellent for both keeping my own Spanish up-to-date and for recommending to my more advanced learners. Ben and Marina have a very natural approach, and all their materials are excellent.
Marie Barnes –
Six years ago, when I retired, I started my Notes in Spanish adventures. I bought the Intermediate level, then backed up to Beginners and I’m slowly making my way through the Advanced podcasts and worksheets. My Spanish has improved immensely through fairly consistent home practice and conversation groups. I feel like I know Ben and Marina, and I enjoy their topics. Spain has a special place in my heart, and Ben and Marina help me stay connected. As a teacher, I appreciate their ability to scaffold the learning experience through the levels. I’ve been enjoying the latest advanced podcasts through emails, but haven’t bought the worksheets since I’m still slogging through the Advanced 1 set. Now I just have to find a way for all the wonderful vocabulary, grammar and usage to stick in my memory. Gracias, Ben y Marina.
Ed Barker –
I have tried many different Spanish courses over the years but none have compared with NIS when it comes to taking my Spanish up to the next level. Their audio interviews and conversations with real spanish speakers together with accompanying trancsripts and exercises get you to understand and analyse Spanish as it is actually spoken by native Spanish speakers like no other way.
Joanne Garner –
I listen to the podcasts while doing the housework and repeat, repeat, repeat until I pick up the jist of the conversation – it’s always on an interesting subject, so I learn something along the way, especially about Spanish culture – love Ben & Marina’s materials!
I’m an enthusiastic member of NIS. It’s informative, fun and very productive!
Bruce SF –
Marina and Ben offer an outstanding (and unequalled) array of exceptionally informative audios, transcripts and videos that bring the culture, lifestyle and language of modern Madrid and Spain to your doorstep. They are an engaging couple whose charming humor and extensive expertise will open your world to many new adventures.

I wasn’t sure how much extra value I would derive from the worksheets, but they are well worth it. I read each one several times and study the vocab that they highlight, and it is really making a difference to my spanish. With the worksheets, I can really focus on how Marina phrases things, and I learn a lot from Ben’s mistakes too. (Don’t stop making them please Ben!). The topics they cover are interesting and topical and they have such a great rapport together. They are funny too, every podcast makes me laugh. Highly recommended!
Nicola May (verified owner) –
I have been learning Spanish for several years and have moved through beginners and intermediate to advanced. I had already listened to lots of the advanced audio but the transcripts and worksheets make a big difference. Definitely recommend.
Laura Fawcett (verified owner) –
I’m an Intermediate level student, but recently bought the Advanced notes, as I wanted to move up a level. The notes are comprehensive, very well written, and are hugely helpful when listening to the audio. I tend to listen with the notes the first time, and then listen a couple more times without notes. A good purchase!
Amira Faulkner (verified owner) –
The worksheets are so helpful! The dialogue ensures that no one misses anything and the vocab really helps to learn more Spanish!
Paul Hodgkins (verified owner) –
I have been working my way through the beginners 1 and 2 ; Real Spanish Control and the Intermediate Pack now for perhaps 5 years since my daughter , who lives in Madrid with her Spanish partner recommended them. I go through perhaps 2 lessons every 5 weeks.
Whilst I am far from being a natural linguist I find the packs easy and enjoyable to use although my pronounciation remains poor when actually trying to talk to Spanish people! However even my daughter who speaks very good Spanish says that she doesn’t understand why even very minor mistakes in her pronounciation can sometimes make what she is saying totally incomprehensible to some Spanish! ! I am yet to use the Advanced pack just purchased as I still have one more lesson to complete at the intermediate level ! This new pack will last me probably 2 years !!!
Sharon Lanza (verified owner) –
I appreciate that the extended conversations are so interesting and realistic. There’s so much to review and learn from the phrases they use, the questions Ben asks, and Marina’s clear knowledge and love for her culture. This series keeps my interest. And it’s clear that they also enjoy their conversations. I’m very happy with the series. Looking forward to using my new skills every day!

Having purchased the intermediate pack in 2018 I thought my Spanish was ok but this advanced pack is a different level and I would struggle without the work sheets but with them learning so fast.
stephen hills (verified owner) –
I have listened to the intermediate and advanced podcasts for years and thoroughly enjoyed the content and variation of the conversations. I finally decided to purchase the worksheets during the coronavirus lockdown so that I could make the most of the extra time I had at home. I wish I had purchased them sooner because although I understood the gist of what was being said in the podcasts without the worksheets, the transcripts have helped me fully understand what is being said and I feel as though my Spanish is improving vastly by studying the vocabulary and grammar that is included in the worksheets. I would strongly recommend to Spanish learners particularly those looking to take the step from intermediate to advanced level Spanish. Great value for money as well given the amount of podcasts that this pack covers. I look forward to continuing my Spanish studies.
Sheryl J –
I actually got the Advanced Premium Pack, and I love it. I minored in Spanish in college about 20 years ago. I have been wanting to increase my fluency so I had been watching Spanish channels. Ben and Marina’s topical conversations are interesting and entertaining, which is very helpful in staying committed to learning. The transcripts are helpful In bringing to light my weak areas. Very well worth it!
Greg Whisenant (verified owner) –
I don’t know why it has taken me so long to write a review but here goes: I discovered the NIS podcast about a year ago and purchased the Intermediate Gold Super Pack. I was hoping to improve my listening comprehension and was struggling a bit with just the audio. Having purchased the transcripts to go along with the audio was a game changer for me. I especially loved the analysis section at the end of the Gold Audios!! I have since moved on the Advanced package and can feel my Spanish improving daily. Thanks Ben and Marina. Espero que un día podamos conocernos en Madrid!
Ann Bonte (verified owner) –
My understanding of Spanish conversations has improved a lot. The worksheets are an excellent tool to help me fully understand the audios and to improve my real life Spanish. This is the best course I have followed so far. Thank you Ben and Marina
Moira Cowie (verified owner) –
I have been listening to Ben and Marina’s podcasts during my daily walks for the past year, both during and between lockdowns, and sent for the worksheets so that I could reinforce what I’d learned from the podcasts. I have really enjoyed improving my spoken Spanish using this method. Great work, Ben and Marina – I look forward to further editions.
Chantal (verified owner) –
I now have an advanced level of Spanish, but still use the transcripts to practice by shadowing. I listen to a portion of the podcast once, following along with the transcript in silence, then again reading out loud, imitating the speed, rhythm and intonation. Repeat until I get it right. But aside from the transcripts themselves, I’d like to highlight how Ben and Marina’s podcasts are always interesting, so keep you wanting to listen. I don’t know how many times I’ve looked up books, artists, a city or a subject after listening to one of their podcasts. Really great work!
EVAN MANNING (verified owner) –
The advanced super pack is a great deal, with over 100 conversations!
These are the perfect bridge between focussed Spanish-teaching material and being able to listen to Spanish-language material that is designed for native speakers. It’s real Spanish but with Ben to slow things down just enough and with that scootch of support from the transcripts.
My favorite way to use them is:
1) listen to the audio, understanding as much as possible
2) listen to the audio, understanding more.
2a) listen more times if necessary to understand almost everything except where they’re probably using words I just don’t know.
3) read the transcript
4) listen again, really understanding everything
4a) and again if needed
Bruce SF –
¡Estupendo! The worksheets are an indispensable aid to fully grasping the amazing content of each course, all expressed in the most modern, street-wise language spoken day in and day out by real madrileños. After listening to and watching Marina and Ben remotely for over a decade, I still marvel at the added value that the worksheets bring to each and every episode.
