Description

In this course you can start learning Spanish from scratch or refresh it if you have learned it long ago and you have forgotten a lot.

The course is divided in two:

1) The first part is very basic and it advances slow, so that you can learn the very basics.

2) The second part has a faster speed. It aims to give you a basic overview of the Spanish language to help you become an autodidact learner.

If you want to make the most of this course, it is very important for you to use the extra material. Every lesson includes autocorrective PDF material, and some lessons also include a quiz or extra audio material.

Some learners might need repeating some parts of the course, others might advance faster. This depends on several factors, such as your start level, the other languages that you speak or the type of learner you are.

I wish you a lot of fun with this course! If you have any questions, just send me a message!
