Become a Highly Skilled User of Spanish – It’s All Well Within Your Reach.

Spanish is definitely one of the most popular languages in the world. There’s a whole bunch of benefits to knowing Spanish. Let me just mention a few. In our global society you can make use of it in business, becoming a more valuable worker, in private life, on vacation, chatting online, reading literature and press or watching satellite TV. In some parts of the world, like for instance in both Americas, Spanish is either the main language spoken or one of the main ones. And I could go on and on like that...

This is an intensive course, which means it covers the basics from level zero (absolute beginner) and then you wander across all the lectures and learn quite a lot of stuff. The explanations are concise and clear. You should have no difficulty following and understanding them. A lot of stuff and a lot of practice.

Contents and Overview

This course is pretty comprehensive. It contains all the basic areas of Spanish grammar. Starting off with Spanish spelling and pronunciation, touching upon all the main grammatical categories in the first sections and then going into much more detail in the following sections. The language I use is simple and should be easily understood by absolute beginners.

This course is divided into 25 sections, each of them covering a broad topic subdivided into lectures. The pace is up to you, you can go through the easier parts faster and then take more time to study the more sophisticated ones.

To help you memorize and practice all the new stuff, there are loads of exercises. Most lectures are accompanied by additional resources. These are downloadable files with exercises (with key). There also files with vocabulary revision and, first of all, the main text file containing the material covered in the lecture video.

After you finish each section, there’s a quiz for you that covers the material discussed in that section.

This course contains:

  • 240 lectures in 25 sections,
  • about 24 hours of video content,
  • nearly 800 pages of grammar explained in detail (lecture scripts),
  • over 350 written exercises with complete answer keys on 444 pages,
  • over 230 interesting facts about the language and the Spanish-speaking countries

After you finish this course you will be able to use the Spanish language comfortably and correctly, understanding all the underlying rules and thus able to generate any constructions you want, in both spoken and written language. You will be able to use simple, compound and complex sentences and you will know what word order should be used. You will know how the language works and you will get a good feel of it.


Who is the target audience?
  • This course is best suited for students who want to learn Spanish in a systematic way, diving into its grammar and be-ing eager to understand how the language works, how all the inflections, articles, tenses, moods etc. should be used correctly.
  • This is a beginner course but is also suitable for students who already have some knowledge of Spanish but would like to refresh it in an ordered and systematic way.
  • This course is NOT suitable for students who only want to learn some everyday vocabulary or expressions like how to order food in a restaurant, book a ticket or something like that but don’t care about grammar.

Spelling and Pronunciation
7 Lectures 43:53

In this section our subject will be Spanish spelling and pronunciation. At first we’ll learn the Spanish alphabet, then we’ll learn how to pronounce Spanish consonants and vowels. Finally we’ll discuss the stress rules and Spanish accents.

Introduction to Section 2
01:37

In this lecture we’ll learn the Spanish alphabet so that you know how to spell words. Visually it’s very much like the English one, but the names of the letters differ dramatically.

A, Be, Ce - The Spanish Alphabet
06:06

In this lecture we’ll talk about Spanish consonants. Most of them are easy to learn because of their similarities to English ones, but some of them are pronounced in a totally different way.

P como Pedro – Spanish Consonants
17:40

And now it’s time to learn the Spanish vowels. These are pronounced in a different way than their English counterparts. 

A como Ana – Spanish Vowels and Diphthongs
10:40

Spanish stress rules are pretty easy. This is the subject of this lecture.

Getting Started – by Leaps and Bounds
16 Lectures 02:39:13

In this section we’ll get up and running. We’ll do some of this and some of that. Our topics in this section include the basics of articles, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns and verbs. We’ll also learn some occupations in Spanish and we’ll learn how to introduce ourselves and other people.

Introduction to Section 3
04:42

In this lecture we’ll learn how to ask about things. The question we’re about to learn is What is this? – a question most courses usually start with. We’ll see how to introduce things. In this lecture we’ll have a look at the definite and indefinite articles. Fortunately, there are only two genders in Spanish and only two articles in singular and two in plural. We’ll see how to use the articles with nouns. Finally we´ll discuss typical masculine and feminine noun endings.

¿Qué es esto? – Introducing things
10:30

In this lecture we’ll ask about the appearance of things and people. The question we’re going to use is What’s it like? We’ll also use adjectives to describe things. We’ll learn some common adjectives which we can use to describe color, size, age, quality, etc. We´ll also cover the gender of adjectives.

¿Cómo es esto? – Describing things
13:54

Now that we can talk about things, it’s time we learned how to talk about people. Introducing people is the subject of this lecture. We’ll also see how to ask: Who is this? Finally, we’ll learn the Spanish counterparts of Mr., Mrs. and Miss.

¿Quién es esto? – Introducing People
06:10

In this lecture we´ll learn how to introduce ourselves. We´ll also learn some basic expressions used in everyday conversations, like hello, goodbye, please, how are you, etc.

Hola, yo soy Ana - Introducing Yourself, Common Greetings
07:18

In this lecture we’ll explore the world of Spanish personal pronouns. There are a few more pronouns than in English because there are separate masculine and feminine forms in some cases. There are also more ways to say you. These pronouns can be then used along with the verbs that we are going to conjugate.

In this lecture we´ll also see how to conjugate the verb to be. We’ll see how to distinguish between formal and informal forms of pronouns. Unlike in English, we usually omit personal pronouns if the meaning is clear from the context. It’s possible because there are distinct personal endings in Spanish. In this lecture we’ll see how it works.

Yo soy, nosotros somos – Personal Pronouns, The Verb ‘to be’
21:44

In this lecture we´ll learn how to ask for personal information like someone´s name or occupation. We´ll also learn how to answer such questions. In this lecture we´ll also learn some jobs in Spanish.

¿Quién eres? ¿Cómo te llamas? – Asking For Personal Information
05:22

Most infinitives in Spanish end in –ar. Some of them also end in –er or –ir. In this lecture we´ll see how the predominant conjugation pattern looks and what all the personal forms look like.

Canto, cantas, canta - Regular Verbs
09:20

In this lecture we’ll learn cardinal numbers. There’s quite a lot of stuff to memorize in this lecture if you have never learned Spanish numbers, but you can come back to this lecture from time to time and revise.

Uno, dos, tres – Cardinal Numbers
13:20

In this lecture we’ll see how most plural forms of nouns are made. It’s very easy and very much like in English. Unlike in English, Spanish adjectives also take plural forms. Fortunately, these forms are practically the same as those of nouns so there is hardly anything new to learn.

Los estudiantes inteligentes – Plurals
07:55

In this lecture we’ll see how to ask about quantity and how to say how much of something there is or how many elements there are. We´ll be using words like much, many, a lot of, few and little.

Cuanto, mucho, poco – Quantity, Number, Amount
12:28

The subject of this lecture are possessive adjectives. These are words like my, your, our, etc. They frequently accompany nouns to determine who something belongs to or part of what something is.

Mi, tu, su - Possessive Adjectives
09:13

This lecture is about demonstrative pronouns, so words like this, that, these and those. There are two kinds of demonstrative pronouns in Spanish: those which always accompany a noun and those which stand on their own. In this lecture we’ll talk about both.

Esto, eso, aquello - Some Frequently Used Pronouns
11:57

Adverbs modify adjectives, verbs and other adverbs. In Spanish some adverbs are formed from adjectives, but there are also loads of adverbs which are not derived from adjectives. In this lecture we’ll have a look at some common adverbs.

Yo hablo bien - Adverbs
08:23

Throughout the whole of Section 3 we’ve come across lots of new words. Why not practice them a bit again? This way you will remember them better.

To be or not to be
7 Lectures 39:15

In this lecture we´ll have a look at what’s in this section. This section focuses on the three verbs used in Spanish as the counterparts of the English verb to be.

Introduction to Section 4
01:39

In this lecture we’ll describe location of things and people. There’s a special verb for that in Spanish. We’ll learn how to ask: Where is it? and how to answer that question.

¿Dónde está esto? – Describing Location
05:30

Just like with ser, let’s learn the full conjugation of the verb estar. This is the topic of this lecture.

Estoy, estamos, están - Conjugation of the Verb estar
06:23

In this lecture we’ll discover yet another verb that conveys the meaning of to be. This one is used in constructions like the English there is and there are.

¿Qué hay sobre la mesa? – There is, there are
13:54

We now have three verbs that mean to be in Spanish. In this lecture we’ll recapitulate on how to use them correctly.

Es, está, hay – The Three Ways of Saying to be
10:00

In Section 4 there´s been much less new vocabulary than in Section 3. Anyway, let´s go through it again to revise.

Conjugation Patterns
14 Lectures 01:53:15

In this section our subject will be conjugation patterns of Spanish verbs. There are three conjugation patterns and we’ll discuss them all in detail in the lectures that follow. We will also talk about irregular verbs. There are so many of them.

Introduction to Section 5
03:39

Time for the first conjugation pattern. We already talked about it in Section 3, so let´s just revise. Most infinitives in Spanish end in –ar. This conjugation pattern is predominant. In this lecture we’ll see again what all the personal forms look like.

Bailo, bailas, baila – Regular verbs ending in -ar
06:13

In this lecture we’ll discuss another conjugation pattern. Quite a few verbs end in –er in their infinitive forms. Let’s see how they are conjugated.

Como, comes, come – Regular verbs ending in –er
05:48

And one more conjugation pattern. Some verbs end in –ir in their infinitive forms. Let’s have a look at some examples and see how they are conjugated.

Vivo, vives, vive – Regular verbs ending in -ir
05:44

Some Spanish verbs change their stems in a systematic way. Apart from that they may be regular in all or at least some tenses. In this lecture we´ll talk about verbs that change their stems but are otherwise regular in the present tense.

Pienso, cuento, conozco – Slightly Irregular Verbs
18:28

Reflexive verbs in English are not very common. In Spanish it´s a totally different story. There are lots of reflexive verbs. In this lecture we´ll see how they are formed and we´ll have a look at some examples.

Me peino, te lavas – Reflexive Verbs
09:58

One of the most important verbs in any language is the verb to have. This verb is also used in multiple contexts where it´s not translated literally into English. We´ll touch upon this topic, too, in this lecture.

Tengo hambre – The Verb to have
08:10

In this lecture we’ll see how to use the irregular verb to go. This verb is totally irregular, so you have to memorize all the forms. It´s also used in many expressions where it´s not literally translated into English.

Vamos al cine – The Verb to go
05:42

There are really lots of irregular verbs in Spanish. To make it a bit easier, let´s try and categorize them somehow so that they´re easier to handle. In this lecture we´ll have a look at the two verbs used for senses: ver and oír, which mean to see and to hear respectively.

Veo, oigo – Irregular Verbs Used For Senses
06:09

In this lecture we´ll learn some irregular verbs that correspond to the English modal verbs can and may. We´ll also learn the verb decir, which means to say, and we´ll revise the verb querer, to want / to love.

Sé, digo, puedo - Irregular Verbs Used For Capabilities, Will and Speaking
14:47

In this lecture we´ll learn how to use the verbs venir and salir, which mean to come and to leave respectively.

Vengo, Salgo - Irregular Verbs Used For Moving Around
05:38

In this lecture we´ll learn some more irregular verbs and that will be it for now. It doesn´t mean there are no more irregular verbs, actually there are many more, but we´ll be learning them as need arises in the future lectures.

Doy, hago, pongo - Other Irregular Verbs
10:25

Throughout the whole of Section 5 we’ve come across lots of new words. Let´s practice them again. This way you will remember them better.

Asking, Confirming, Negating and Ordering
12 Lectures 01:38:13

In this section we’ll learn how to ask questions, how to answer questions, how to make negative statements and how to use imperatives.

Introduction to Section 6
02:56

General questions in Spanish are extremely easy to make. In most cases hardly anything changes in written language (except for the question marks). In spoken language the intonation is different. In this lecture we´ll see how to make general questions.

¿Hablas español? – General Questions
04:38

In this lecture we´ll see how to ask specific questions. We´ll recap on the question words we already know and we´ll learn some new ones.

Qué, dónde, cuándo - Specific Questions and Question Words
13:26

In this lecture we´ll talk about negative sentences. You´ve already come across examples of negative sentences, but in this lecture we´ll try to systematize it.

No es importante - Negative Sentences
05:32

In this lecture we´ll talk about imperatives. As for now, we´ll be talking only about affirmative ones because negative imperatives (the don´ts) are formed in a different way and we’ll talk about them in one of the next lectures. Now, we’ll concentrate on the formal and informal imperative forms of regular and slightly irregular verbs.

Habla, contad – Imperatives of Regular and Slightly Irregular Verbs
16:03

In this lecture we’ll continue our discussion on imperatives. This time we’ll have a look at some common irregular verbs and again, we’ll stick to affirmative imperative forms for now.

Ven, decid – Imperatives of Irregular Verbs
08:54

In this lecture we will have a look at the imperative forms of reflexive verbs. This is quite easy, all you have to remember is how to use the reflexive pronouns. Just have a go and see how easy it is.

Péinate – Imperatives of Reflexive Verbs
07:04

As promised, in this lecture we´ll be talking about negative imperatives of regular and slightly irregular verbs. The bad news is there are new endings to learn. The good news is they are repetitive.

No hables tanto – Negative Imperatives of Regular and Slightly Irregular Verbs
13:35

In this lecture we will be talking about negative imperatives of irregular verbs. There are some new forms to learn, I´m afraid, but don´t worry: all the forms of negative imperatives will come in very handy later on when we discuss the subjunctive mood. As you know, these are the subjunctive forms.

No hagas, no tengáis - Negative Imperatives of Irregular Verbs
13:24

In this lecture we will be talking about negative imperatives of reflexive verbs.

No te laves - Negative Imperatives of Reflexive Verbs
10:06

In Section 6 we’ve come across some new vocabulary, maybe not as much as in the previous sections. Anyway, let´s practice the new words.

Direct and Indirect Object
9 Lectures 01:10:01

In this section we´ll be talking about direct and indirect objects. We´ll see how nouns and pronouns function in this role. 

Introduction to Section 7
02:37

Although there is no case system in Spanish like in some other languages (German for example), there are ways to express the meaning of different cases like nominative or objective. In this lecture we’ll see how this is done.

Al hijo, de la hija – Expressing Noun Cases
07:16

In this lecture we´ll learn how to use personal pronouns as direct and indirect objects. We will also have a look at the word order, which differs from that in English. 

Te veo, me ves – Objective Forms of Personal Pronouns
10:11

In this lecture we’ll discuss some of the most common Spanish prepositions. Prepositions tend to be used differently in different languages, which is why there is no one-to-one correspondence between English and Spanish prepositions, but let’s have a look at how they are most typically used.

A, de, por – Common Prepositions
17:48

After some prepositions personal pronouns remain unchanged. After others they sometimes differ in form. In this lecture we´ll be talking about personal pronouns used with prepositions.

A ella, para ti – Personal Pronouns after Prepositions
09:14

We already know how to use personal pronouns as direct objects or indirect objects. But what if we need both in one sentence? In this lecture we´ll see how to cope with that.

Te lo digo – Double Object Pronouns
09:24

Personal pronouns stand on their own or are attached to the verbs. In this lecture we’ll see how they behave when the verb form is an infinitive or imperative.

Dale, darle – Verb Forms with Personal Pronouns
09:42

As usual, let’s practice the new vocabulary we’ve been using in this section.

The Preterite Tense
8 Lectures 42:27

In this section we’ll be talking about one of the past tenses commonly used in Spanish, the Preterite Tense. We’ll start by having a brief glance at the past tenses used in Spanish.

Introduction to Section 8
01:58

In this lecture we´ll have an overview of all the Spanish moods, tenses and other verb forms. This is just for reference, there´s no point learning all the forms now because we´ll be discussing them one by one later in the course.

Spanish Tenses, Moods and Other Verb Forms
07:00

In this lecture we’ll have a look at the past forms of the verb to be (ser). This verb is totally irregular and we have to memorize all the forms.

Fue tarde – The Past Tense of the Verb to be
04:07

In this lecture we´ll see how to make the past forms of regular verbs. There are two sets of endings, one for the -ar verbs and another for the –er and –ir verbs.

Preview 05:25

You probably remember the verbs we discussed earlier where the stem changes in declension, like dormir, pensar, pedir and others. Well, here they come again. It turns out that there are some more changes in the Preterite tense. This will be the subject of this lecture.

Durmió, sintió – The Past Tense of Slightly Irregular Verbs
07:28

There are quite a few verbs in Spanish that form their present and/or past forms in an irregular way. We´ll first revise the present irregular forms and then we´ll have a look at the past ones.

Vi, vimos – The Past Tense of Irregular Verbs
14:02

In this lecture we´ll have another look at the vocabulary we´ve learned in this section.

Verbal Constructions
18 Lectures 01:26:27

In this section our subject is the verb. This time we´ll learn some commonly used verbal constructions.

Introduction to Section 9
03:41

Sometimes it doesn´t matter who does something. What matters is the action itself. In such cases you use constructions like one says, they do or you know in English. In this lecture we’ll see how to make such impersonal constructions in Spanish.

Se dice que... – Impersonal Forms
04:11

Gerunds, which are the subject of this lecture, are widely used in Spanish. They correspond to the English present participles ending in –ing. We´ll see how to make the regular forms of gerunds and learn a few irregular ones.

Cantando y comiendo - Gerund
05:58

In Spanish we can use progressive forms to emphasize that something is being done at the moment or is being done over and over again. We use gerunds in such constructions. In this lecture we´ll see how it works.

Estamos cantando - Progressive Forms
09:19

In this lecture we´ll learn how to say that we are still doing something, that we keep doing something or go on doing something.

Seguimos comiendo – Continuous Forms
03:42

Infinitives are used in a couple of ways in Spanish. In this lecture we´ll see how they are used after prepositions and as nouns.

Ver, hablar, beber – Simple Infinitives
06:07

Infinitives can be used as objects after some verbs of senses. In this lecture we´ll see how to do it. We´ll also talk about the word order in such sentences according to whether the nominal object is a noun or a pronoun.

Te vi venir – Infinitives as Objects
04:07

In this lecture we´ll talk about a common and useful construction with the verb volver, which is used to say that we do something again.

Volver a cantar – Repetitive Forms
04:05

In this lecture we´ll talk about a construction that corresponds to the English to be going to and, just like in English, is used to talk about plans and intentions, but also about predictions based on current circumstances.

Voy a cantar – Intentions and Predictions
05:43

In this lecture we´ll discuss yet another common constructions that can be translated into English in a couple of ways. This construction makes use of the verb estar.

Está para venir – Readiness and Intentions
04:10

Infinitives in Spanish are also used as imperatives and in instructions. This is the subject of this lecture.

No entrar – Constructions with Infinitives
03:19

One of the most typical Spanish constructions with an infinitive is that with the word al at the beginning. It refers to the time something happens. In this lecture we´ll see how to use it.

Al venir a casa... – The al + Infinitive Construction
05:57

We already know present participles. In this lecture we´ll talk about the other type of participles, the past participles, which we will in a later section use to construct compound tenses. Here we´ll start with regular ones.

Leído, comido, alabado – Past Participles of Regular Verbs
05:27

A couple of verbs have irregular past participle forms. In this lecture we´ll have a look at them.

Hecho, abierto - Irregular Past Participles
06:55

In this lecture we´ll discuss some constructions with past participles. These constructions are usually translated into English either by means of analogous English constructions or by full clauses.

Llegada la hora... – Constructions with Participles
04:24

In this short lecture we´ll have a look at one more verbal construction. This one is used to justify your reasons and is quite popular in everyday language.

Es que... – Giving Reasons
03:37

In this lecture we´ll have another look at the vocabulary we´ve learned in this section.

Describing and Specifying
7 Lectures 47:10

In Section 10 we’ll be talking about a couple of words and constructions that are used to describe and specify other words. These include possessive pronouns, adverbs of intensity and relative pronouns among others.

Introduction to Section 10
01:33

Possessive pronouns may be used on their own or with a noun. They are used in a bit different way than in English. Sometimes they are accompanied by an article, sometimes not. In this lecture we’ll discuss it in detail.

Mío, tuyo, suyo – Possessive Pronouns
07:42

In this lecture we´ll learn how to say that one thing is the same as another. The Spanish word we´ll be using a lot in this lecture is mismo and we´ll also have a look at a couple of other uses of this word.

El mismo, la misma – Sameness
05:47

In this lecture we´ll learn how to describe degree and intensity. We will learn words that can be used to say that something is very big, so big, not very big, quite big, etc. 

Muy, tan, tanto – Degree and Intensity
10:52

Relative pronouns are used to introduce clauses that modify nouns. There are a couple of them like which, who, whose, where or when. We will discuss them one by one in this lecture.

Here to share what I know.

I studied linguistics and computer science. I have an MA degree in linguistics and I'm also an IT engineer. Since 1999 I've been working as a teacher. I teach languages (English, German, French and Spanish) and also academic and technical subjects like math, science, programming, 3D modeling. I teach 6-year-olds, high-school and university students and adults. I work at a public school and deliver live and online courses. I love this job.
