Spanish Quickies (Audio)

Sinopse

If youve always wanted to learn Spanish, but didnt think it was possible because you were terrible at Spanish in high school, or you dont get sucked into Rosetta Stone-style hype--youve come to the right place. Im a normal person, not some big company and not some native Spanish speaker. Im not a natural language learner at all actually. My first brush with Spanish ended with me getting an F in high school! But somewhere along the way, I fell in love! Im not sure if I love Spanish because I love traveling, or I love traveling because I love Spanish (and food). But I love them both. Naturally, I want more people to love what I love, but I know that you probably dont see Spanish like I do... not yet! Thats the point of this podcast. I want to show you that there is ANOTHER WAY! That most of the strategies and tactics they used to teach us Spanish in high school are IGNORANT. They are ignorant to our plight. I know your mistakes. I understand why you make them. They were my mistakes too! I remember the pain and the agony of having to figure it all out myself because... lets just say... I was underwhelmed with the resources out there. Well, now with these Spanish Quickies, you dont have to waste the years I did, figuring this out on my own.

    “Weird” Uses of LLEVAR [Spanish Tidbit]

    In this video, we take a look at all those “weird” uses of “llevar”. Which turn out… not to be so weird. We actually say the same things in English a lot of the time–we simply don’t realize it. But after this video we do =) Download the Battle Plans: Download the FREE Spanish Battle […]

  • Llevar  Traer

    Llevar & Traer

    08/08/2018 Duração: 15min

    At first glance, “llevar” and “traer” seem exactly like “ir” and “venir”. They ARE like them. But not EXACTLY. When schools, books and courses present them in a simple manner, they’re kinda missing the part that actually confuses us lol. If YOU’VE ever been confused by the words “take” or “bring” — watch this video! […]

  • Ir  Venir [Spanish Tidbit]

    Ir & Venir [Spanish Tidbit]

    25/07/2018 Duração: 13min

    It’s so close to the same! But the one difference is what makes “ir” and “venir” confusing. Spanish uses “venir” in only one context–and they’re very LOYAL to that context. English on the other hand, plays things a little looser. Watch this video to never be confused by “ir” and “venir” again. Download the Battle […]
