So you want to learn Spanish? From which part of the world? Over 500 years ago the Spanish language (a.k.a. Castellano) crossed an ocean and spread to 2 different continents spanning more than 20 different countries. During this time old and distinct cultures clashed and new worlds were formed, each creating its own historical, cultural and linguistic legacy. The Dímelo Caminando (Tell-it-to-me-walking) Latin America Travel, Culture and Spanish Language Learning podcast is your host Jamie Killen’s attempt to explore these worlds as he travels his way through the South American continent to discover, learn, and share with you how each one of these countries and its people give life to their language and culture. Regional speech, idiomatic expressions, popular language, grammar, vocabulary, themes, symbols, and cultural facets will be presented and explored through all sorts of different interviews and conversations with experts, local slang masters, and Spanish speakers from all over Latin America and Spain, starting with Colombia and Ecuador. You can find FREE transcripts of each episode along with mini lessons and grammar explanations, language learning strategies, tips, hacks, and new vocabulary at TellittomeWalking.com.

The first 2 episodes are great! I am a Spanish teacher and I like to brush up on my Spanish- the topics are really interesting and I like the normal paced conversation with native speakers.
Haaabla mi gente!!
It's a beautiful thing being able to pop in my earbuds and be immediately transported into the o so interesting linguistic world of Latin American. Now, I may be sliiiightly biased as Jamie is my boy, but here me now all you Spanish learners, travelers and linguistic enthusiasts out there, this kid's bringing his A game with this podcast! Super interesting and intimate interviews with people who have the low down on specific cultural topics relevant to their country, city or immediate social circle. You basically get to listen in as Jamie chats up locals and taps into knowledge that only la gente del pueblo can provide, none of that text book ish. And don't get me started on the soundtrack....dooooope son. Keep em' comin.
Espero que no haya terminado!
As somebody who is still learning the language, I love the few episodes of this podcast that Jamie has put together. I’m hoping he resumes making new episodes and hasn’t given up. The ones that are here are excellent!
