I found that a season of dubbed Buffy the Vampire (a show that I was very familiar with in English) helped me bridge the distance between Destinos and Spanish-language television. Likewise with Italian…a few dubbed seasons of Star Trek made native content much more accessible.
Hi ShawnP. I completely agree with Stell. I'm not nearly as proficient as she is, but I've found that watching the dubbed editions of Longmire and Blacklist in Spanish on Netflix has helped a lot.
I think the only dubbed show I've watched in Spanish was Squid Game
but I can definitely vouch for it being easier to parse than native Spanish-language media. I recommend going this route as a bridge, like stll and Cerebral Arbitrage have said.
Also--noticed the Uga avatar. I live in Georgia as well and can't stand the fact that y'all have won the last two natties
jmar257, I've searched around for dubbed shows on Amazon Prime, Peacock, and YouTube with little success. I'm sure I could find some on Netflix or Hulu but there are so much spanish content out there for free that I'm not sure it would be worth it to purchase a streaming service. For example, on YouTube alone, I've found 3 telemundo sites (Telemundo, Telemundo English, Telemundo Novelas.) And I guarantee there are so many more spanish channels I could find if I really started searching.
As for the Georgia Bulldogs winning, well, its about time and I'm gonna enjoy it while I can. GO DAWGS.
