ยกAyuda! I can't understand spanish TV shows... now what? โš ๏ธ Most likely you lack vocabulary or the pace is too fast. Luckily there are resources like cool Chrome extensions with interactive subtitles that provide translations with the click of a button!

Watching TV in a foreign language can feel overwhelming. Where should you start? How do you know if youโ€™re learning? Maybe youโ€™ve already tried some Spanish TV shows and understood nada. Could be you're just missing the right show or strategy. ๐Ÿ—บ

How to feel miserable when learning a language: keep looking at native speakers and asking yourself "why aren't I there yet???" ๐Ÿ˜ญ How to feel happy when learning a language: keep aiming to speak slightly better than you already do, and celebrate all the small wins. ๐Ÿฅณ
