So, there you have it. A whopping list of 53 intriguing Spanish TV shows that will make you occupied for a long time – unless of course, you’re the type who does series marathons every week.
While some of you may think it’s absurd to watch Spanish series with all the subtitles and stuff, you shouldn’t disregard them just for that.
Amazingly enough, I found that these shows have the most intriguing, out-of-this-world plots that will make you hooked – and possibly craving – to them for a long time.
Plus, if you’re studying Spanish, you can definitely use this as an educational tool to boost your vocabulary. Of course, it will take you a while before you can be fluent in the language.
But, it’s the most fun way of learning how the language’s used on a daily basis. You simply have to subscribe to a Netflix account, create your profile, and start adding the TV shows you’d want to watch.
You can even choose to switch the subtitles off if you’re that dead set to become fluent with the language the soonest.
But, for whatever reason you have for watching these Spanish TV shows, it’s a great way to genuinely appreciate their culture.
What’re you waiting for? Select from the shows listed above, and have a great weekend ahead of you!
