Extra is a language education television series scripted in the format of a Friends-esque sitcom and is mainly marketed for middle school and high school language classes.

It is situated in the flat of two friends, Ana and Lola with Pablo, the friend from across the hall, frequently coming to visit. A friend from America, Sam, comes to stay – his Spanish is poor which means the others need to explain things and speak more slowly. It is a bit on the cheesy side but a lot of fun to watch.

This is a great way to pick up new vocab and increase your listening skills. For any words you are not sure of, it’s really simple to pick these up from the visual queues.

You can also find quizzes and transcripts on the Channel 4 website:

Extra Spanish is Fantastic
Extra en Español review by garymccann on 07/12/2016
This is a fantastic series. I have only been learning Spanish for a month and I can follow the conversation on this without too much difficulty as you pick up a lot from the context (and from the others helping Sam with his Spanish)

With the added notes from Channel 4 website and the quizzes, this is amazing. Much more interesting and entertaining than watching the usual lesson videos.
