Top series to learn Spanish

Watching series is one of the most enjoyable and fun ways to learn and perfect a language.

Obviously, this method works if you use it as a complementary tool and if you have a foundation in the language, serving as a reinforcement for your theoretical classes and an alternative to improve your pronunciation and expand your vocabulary. At Taronja School, we have selected some of the best series to learn Spanish.

Top series to learn Spanish 2

El Ministerio del Tiempo is one of the most famous Spanish fiction series.

The plot approaches the history of Spain in a very original way, through the members of a “special” police force that travels through time to ensure that everything follows its course.

In addition to learning the language, with this series, you can also familiarize yourself with the main historical events that have shaped the popular culture of our country.

Vis a vis

Top series to learn Spanish 3

Vis a vis was born as a version of the successful American series Orange is the new black.

However, it is not a copy: the quality and originality of its plots, as well as the action and acting of its protagonists, who bring to life several women serving sentences in prison, have brought it great success and recognition both in Spain and abroad.

Élite

Élite is a Netflix super-production that has become one of the most-watched Spanish series in the world.

It is a teenage drama that tells the lives of students at a prestigious private school attended by both children of wealthy people and children of more humble backgrounds and workers.

The series focuses on the relationships and conflicts among the main characters and their teachers but also addresses cross-cutting themes such as sex, love, drugs, family, or friendship.

La casa de papel

Top series to learn Spanish 5

La casa de papel has become one of the audiovisual phenomena of the last decade, and its success worldwide is undeniable.

Its plot has crossed borders, and you’ve probably heard of it: a man known as “The Professor” plans the heist of the Royal Mint of Madrid. To do so, he recruits a group of thieves with city names (Tokyo, Helsinki, Lisbon, Moscow, Denver, etc.) and with personal stories they want to hide.

The series has a lot of action, excellent actors, and surprising plots that leave no one indifferent.

Las chicas del cable

Top series to learn Spanish 6

Las chicas del cable was the first original Netflix series produced in Spain, and we believe it is one of the best series to learn Spanish.

Its plot mainly focuses on the lives of several women who work as telephone operators at a telecommunications company during the 1920s-1930s.

Love, friendships, progress, and feminism are some of the main themes of this series starring the well-known Spanish actress Blanca Suárez.

Valeria

This series begins when Valeria, a young writer, goes through a marital and personal crisis that leads her to consider making some changes in her life.

To carry them out, she will count on the help of her inseparable friends Carmen, Lola, and Nerea.

With a style that may remind you of the successful Sex and the City and based on a book series by the writer Elísabet Benavent, Valeria addresses love, jealousy, desire, infidelity, and success through a group of thirtysomething women living in Madrid.

Some tips for learning Spanish by watching series:

In addition to selecting the best series to learn Spanish, from our Spanish school in Valencia, we also want to give you some practical tips to achieve your goals.

Take note of them and get ready with popcorn to watch your favourite series!

  1. Always watch the series you choose in the original version, that is, in Spanish.
  2. In the beginning, especially if your Spanish level is not very high, we recommend turning on subtitles in your native language. Later, as your level improves, you can try switching them to the original language.
  3. Have a notebook and a dictionary handy while watching the series, but don’t pause every time an unknown word or verb appears. If you pause frequently, you’ll end up getting bored.
  4. Repeat the words and expressions you want to learn out loud. If necessary, rewind the video to hear them several times until you memorize their correct pronunciation.
  5. Be consistent and coherent. To improve your Spanish by watching series, it’s best to set goals for yourself. For example, you can challenge yourself to find 5 verbs in the past perfect tense, look for conditionals, write down 10 words that start with a specific letter, or note down expressions that can be useful to you when going to a restaurant or a store. We also recommend being consistent. How? By watching one episode every day.
  6. Finally, we recommend trying series and movies that you already know. This will help you follow the plot better and increase your motivation.

Intensive course for 3 weeks I went to Taronja as an almost beginner in Spanish and after three weeks I think I’ve made such an improvement but I’ve also learnt so much about different cultures and I think it has been an amazing experience.
I stayed in one of the school’s shared apartments with 4-5 other students from the school all of different nationalities and we were from the age of 18-26 and that was one of things that made my time there so special because you make such deep special bonds with other people in the same situation as you.
Over the three weeks the teachers were so engaging and welcoming along with the interns. There were multiple times where after activities we’d go to a bar or get some food and you felt so welcome and they were all so enthusiastic. In lessons each teacher found a different way to make sure you were taking in everything and the lessons were always fun. They also had a massive focus on conversation which was so helpful.
At the school there was such a range of ages and nationalities but I think we all came together really well through all of the amazing activities. My favourites were the excursions and the paella parties but all of them are worth doing as they improve your Spanish and give you opportunities to meet new people.
Thank you so much Taronja for the experience

As a retired teacher (university) I was very impressed with the techniques used by the instructors. The classes are engaging; the teachers are motivating and supportive. I enjoyed the diversity of students in the classroom ( countries and ages). At the beginning of each week learning outcomes are presented. Then each class starts with a review of the days learning outcomes and ends with a recap of achievements-- theory, activities, and new words. Each class offers ample opportunities to practice new skills with a wide range of activities. Everyone has numerous chances to speak in every class with carefully crafted activities that are inclusive and fun. The small group size adds to the comfort for those of us who are intimidated with learning new skills.
Classes are pitched at each student's level based on a written assessment. However, during the morning of the first class each person can assess how comfortable they are with the material. They can then move to a higher or lower level class that will more closely meet their personal learning needs.
The school also offers a wide range of activities which further engages learners with more ways to practice language skills as well as to learn about the culture of Spain. I will do another post about my decision to study in Valencia

I have been to Taronja School for four weeks during June/July and I really enjoyed it. The professors are all young and well prepared. The teaching methodology is very good. The proposed activities were good and permits you to meet people from foreign countries and improve your language skills. I recommend it 🙂
