Description

In this course you will be able to learn Spanish from the very basics, from a single word to complex sentences. 

I used the word manzana apple in every grammatical form to make them easier for you. In this course we are going to use 9 main verbs, with these verbs you will be able to express the things that you like to do, what you want, what you have to do, the things that you can do, and many more!

How to read Spanish

This section is optional. Before starting the classes I recommend to check these videos. Here we are going to review on every Spanish sound. And also, you will see the pronunciation in Korean and Japanese writing.

Classes

Every class is less than 10 minutes long. I designed this course to learn Spanish grammar in little bites, so in every class you will add more and more words to express yourself.

You can download a PDF file in every class. The file contains all the new vocabulary used in the video and many useful extra notes to understand better Spanish language.

There is a number's video every 3-5 classes, so you don't forget to practice the numbers. These are very important, but most of the times we leave them apart.

At the end of every section you will be able to do a test. This will help you to know your strengths and the areas where you can improve. 

Resources

At the very end of this course you will see all the vocabulary used throughout the course. You can download it at any time.
