  • No previous knowledge of Spanish is required. The course is designed for complete beginners or those with very limited knowledge of the language.


Learn basic communicative Spanish with this easy to follow, carefully graded method for complete beginners.

The method allows you to:

Talk non-stop from the very start. Produce thousands of practical frases for daily use. Painlessly absorb grammar and vocabulary at  A1 level. Progress without effort, without the need to memorize or "study" in the traditional sense.


"Tell me and I will forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn ." (Benjamin Franklin)

EL MÉTODO will allow you to use and understand basic Spanish in a matter of hours, without the need for memorization or lengthy explanations. This is achieved through a carefully designed method that builds up the language in your mind, step by step, until you are able to form relatively complex sentences with ease.

From the very start, you will be forming your own sentences, effortlessly absorbing structures without even realizing it. The method guides you through basic English in a motivating and stimulating way.

EL MÉTODO  does not teach you theory, it teaches you to speak Spanish and helps you achieve this in much less time than traditional methods.


In EL MÉTODO as in real life, learning is a continuous process, not a series of separate topics. Each new word or structure is preceded by a clear and precise introduction. The process continues as the students use the new word in a variety of different contexts. Repeat exposure to new words and structures over time, in a wide variety of situations and associations, means that these are acquired for life.


EL MÉTODO, level 1, consists of 20 video lessons of spoken Spanish. After every lesson there is a series of written exercises as well an optional musical task.

We will engage you in a spoken dialogue that requires no pen and paper. Just talk, talk and talk. You won't stop speaking Spanish from start to finish. This is the ideal system for beginners to learn Spanish. 

My goal with EL MÉTODO  is for you to become "hooked" on the method thereby mastering basic Spanish as quickly as humanly possible.

Best of luck! 

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who would prefer to learn the language through speaking and active involvement rather than studying rule and lists.
  • Anyone who is either vacationing or moving to a Spanish speaking country who needs to acquire a practical use of basic Spanish as quickly as is humanly possible.
  • Anyone whose purpose is to learn Spanish from scratch, in a simple, painless manner.

Language teacher and Course Creator

Después de veinte años de enseñando lenguas en Francia, España y Reino Unido, queda claro que los métodos tradicionales utilizados por las escuelas, colegios  y las academias de idiomas no producen buenos resultados. La mayoría de los estudiantes terminan sus cursos con un dominio muy pobre de la lengua y esto, a veces, después de miles de horas de estudio...

Como resultado, he creado EL MÉTODO, un enfoque nuevo y diferente de la enseñanza del español que le proporcionará una base sólida y un uso práctico en cuestión de horas, no años, sin la sensación de "estudio " asociada con cursos convencionales.

After twenty years teaching languages in France, Spain and U.K it quite clear that the traditional methods used by the majority schools and language academies do not produce good results. Most of the students finish their courses with a very poor command of the language and this, at times,  after thousands of hours of study!

As a result, I have created EL MÉTODO, a new and different approach to the teaching of Spanish that will provide one with a solid base and a practical usage of the language as quickly as is humanly possible, without the need for laborious memorisation or "study " associated with conventional courses.
