Description

If you've tried learning Spanish before and haven't succeeded, well this course is for you.

There is nothing as thrilling as being able to visit another country and communicate with the locals in their own language. Well, now you can experience that amazing feeling too!

This course gives you ten hours of high quality Spanish tuition broken down into 26 lessons. You'll go from a complete beginner to speaking more of the language than somebody who has been studying it for years!

This is the first of my Spanish courses and is suitable for everybody, no matter what your starting level. I wrote the course assuming you know absolutely nothing about the Spanish language. Even if you've studied the language before, I recommend you commence with this course, as you will definitely learn things you didn't know before.

This course gives you a huge base vocabulary and shows you how to build your own sentences to get by in almost any situation. By the end of the course, you'll be more than a perfect tourist and you'll know more than just a few pleasantries.

You'll be able to:

  • Give descriptions of things around you
  • Order food and drinks in a restaurant
  • Make a reservation
  • Book a hotel
  • Hire a car
  • Order a taxi
  • Ask for directions
  • Ask questions about things (and understand the answers!)
  • Go shopping
  • Say what you think about things
  • And much more...

You'll not only get video tutorials, but you'll also get videos where you can practise what you've learnt, videos giving you useful learning techniques and a range of downloadable PDFs that will give you an enormous vocabulary as well as a set of reference sheets explaining the more complex ideas.

Who is the target audience?
  • The good thing about this course is that it is taught under the assumption that you know no Spanish and nothing about languages. Everything is explained thoroughly without the use of confusing terminology. Whether you've learnt Spanish before or not, I recommend you start with this level 1 course; you will learn a lot and it will stand you in good stead for the level 2 course.

You can use the words we've been learning so far as the structure of the Spanish language, and then build it up and decorate it with the words on the Vocabulary Expansion Sheets.

Hola, bonjour, olá, hallo and ciao!

I’m Kieran and run 3 Minute Languages. 3 Minute Languages creates online courses, books and other materials to make language learning accessible to all.

The 3 Minute Languages books and online courses are based on the methodology I developed for teaching languages, which I've been using in all my classes for many years. The methodology will get you speaking quickly, without the struggle normally associated with language learning.

If you've ever struggled with learning a language in the past, then please give one of the 3 Minute Languages courses a go; you'll find it really simple and fun to use!

We are all human beings, which means we all possess the attributes that make us human beings. There's a wonderful quote by a man called Terence:

“I am human, and nothing that is human is alien to me”

What it means is that if one person is capable of something, then we are all capable of it, because we’re all humans too. There's nothing in the world that I cannot understand if somebody before me has succeeded in understanding it. Therefore, it’s only logical that since there are millions of people in the world who have managed to learn to speak a second language, then you can learn it too!  And I'll show you how...
