Description

Not a native speaker, but you want to sound like one? This course is designed for beginner Spanish learners who want to erase pronunciation errors before they even happen. Perfect pronunciation is a hefty feat, but understanding the basic building blocks of the Spanish language (the alphabet, digraphs, trigraphs and unique letters) and the foundations of the pronunciation system (dipthongs, hiatos and accent marks) will place you on the path to pronunciation fluency.

If you're an intermediate or advanced student, but you would like to get back to the basics to see where you might have gone wrong with your pronunciation, this course is for you as well.

Funny, engaging animated videos guide you through the thick and thin of the Spanish phonetic system, which is really not so tricky after all! PDF note sheets help you take useful notes that you can use as reference sheets later on in your studies, and video quizzes allow you to practice your pronunciation skills you've learned in the course!

This course teaches Latin American Spanish with Castillian Spanish (Spain) variations included.

Recent updates to the course include:

  • 3 Audio Lessons that you download to practice your Spanish pronunciation on the go
Who is the target audience?
  • Beginner Spanish students should take this course to build a foundation for native-like pronunciation before they begin to fossilize their pronunciation errors
  • Intermediate and advanced Spanish students could find this course useful to get back to the basics if they find they frequently have trouble with accurate pronunciation
