Episode 1: Surfing In Puerto Escondido
In the first episode of Un día en español — our new podcast for beginner Spanish learners — we meet Andrea, who is from Panama but now lives in Mexico. She loves hanging out at the beach and has always wanted to try surfing, but something has been holding her back. On this particular day, she decided to finally face her fears — with a little help from a new friend.
