Description

This course is for students who want to speak conversational Spanish and have been confronted with the challenge of not being able to understand native speakers. The first step in this process is to learn correct Spanish pronunciation. You will then practice REAL Spanish through songs and audio recordings and will be submitting multiple 1 minute recordings to me for individual feedback on pronunciation. Then you will be using this knowledge to practice conversational situations. I want to empower you to learn how to practice Spanish on your own, and I will give you the tools to do so! Along the way, I give insider tricks and tips on how to study the language and amazing tools that will help you in the process!

In order to learn Spanish conversation quickly, you will need a solid foundation for the language. The goal of this course is to guide you in the right direction and to give you personal feedback about what you are saying in Spanish. The foundation for learning Spanish includes:

  • Being able to pronounce every word in the Spanish language without hesitation.
  • Being able to learn real-life listening skills to improve conversational Spanish fast.
  • Being able to practice real Spanish on your own by mimicking native speakers through songs and audio with various free tools and websites (and you will receive feedback on these recordings from me).
  • Being able to apply this knowledge by knowing and studying practical conversational phrases. These will include how to order food, how to introduce yourself, how to ask basic questions, and other key concepts.
  • Being able to break down conversational phrases so that you can combine them with other words in different contexts. You will not be memorizing word lists like what most teachers do in schools. My approach will give you the full understanding of a few basic grammatical structures that are vital for conversational Spanish so that you can continue your own self-study. This helps students avoid the high costs of hiring multiple tutors or teachers in the future!
  • Knowing the importance of cognates! By the end of this course, you will learn 50 Spanish words and will know how to use them in basic sentences.
  • Being able to use key Spanish-learning tools and websites like Spaced Repetition System (Anki), Audacity, Forvo, and many others to self-learn the language.
  • Being able to slow down an mp3 file to analyze each syllable in it's real context in order to sing/speak various phrases fluently.

All of this includes fast feedback from me, your instructor! I know that students normally prefer face-to-face interactions with their teachers, so I want this course to be as close as possible to a real interaction! My goal is to help all of my students to learn the language faster than they thought possible, and this requires feedback from a fluent speaker.

By the end of the course, you will feel comfortable with basic conversation situations and you will be able to expand on that knowledge by using the different tools that I give you. I firmly believe that you learn better when you know how to learn the language yourself. Plus, my strategy is way more fun than any other course!

Who is the target audience?
  • Any beginner who wants to perfect Spanish pronunciation and increase their vocabulary along the way while preparing for conversational Spanish
  • Anyone who has studied Spanish formally, but wants to practice real Spanish through means of immersion-style practice

Language Instructor

My name is Mark, and I have a passion for helping others learn Spanish (and other languages) efficiently. I have learned the tricks and I help my students reach proficiency in 3 months or less through pronunciation training, long-term vocabulary retention, and basic grammar concepts. I aim to empower my students to self-learn instead of finding another instructor. I believe lots of people waste time and money in language learning, and I want to make it as simple (but not easy) as possible.
