Welcome to Spanish Obsessed, a site dedicated to helping you learn Spanish. We are Rob and Liz, from London and Colombia, and we started this site to share our passion for this incredible language. We create Spanish podcasts for four levels, from total beginner to advanced. We hope you'll find something in there whatever your level. We also share tips for learning Spanish, from techniques for more effective study, motivational articles, to tips about how to approach certain aspects of the language. So, make yourself comfortable, pour yourself another cup of coffee, and get stuck in!

Read on to find out the top “falsos” amigos that you should avoid like the plague!Read more
