How to Learn Spanish with TV Shows

There are a number of ways you can aprovechar (make the most of) watching Spanish TV.

  • Use subtitles. You can use English subtitles at first, and then use Spanish subtitles as you get better so you can read and listen at the same time. This will help you notice new vocabulary and expressions. Netflix is pretty useful for this!
  • Having a good program like FluentU in your toolbox for this is really helpful. The program uses video clips from authentic Spanish media—movies, TV shows, news segments and more—to teach the language as it’s actually used by native speakers. Every video comes with learning tools like interactive subtitles and personalized vocabulary quizzes. 
  • While not all TV show resources have excellent subtitles like FluentU, you can also apply this learning method to any other video you watch. Read along with the subtitles, and pause often to note unfamiliar words (and write down the sentence that you found them in).
  • Watch TV online. Watching online means you can pause more easily if you get stuck. You can go back to hear sections of dialogue again and again (and again) until you understand them. Like most parts of language learning, repetition is key. Need to watch a scene 10 times before you understand it fully? No problem.
  • Don’t be a perfectionist. No need to panic if you don’t understand every word! That’s 100% normal. If you do understand everything, you either need to stop pretending you’re learning Spanish when you’re clearly fluent, or watch something more difficult.


Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy these entertaining Spanish TV shows. 

Choose one that calls to you and get ready to be entertained—and learn a ton of new Spanish!
