Over a year ago, I released the first version of this course Spanish Grammar Workshop and now it has been completely revised. The 35+ guidebook has been redone, I added a short workbook, I’ve reorganized the modules, and I reshot all the videos. If you purchased the course last year, you have lifetime access so you can log in and re-take the course, as needed.
This course is for a beginner, like someone who has never taken Spanish or someone who took a couple years of high school or college Spanish and would like to continue for personal reasons. If you speak Spanish well, this course is not for you.
There are active and passive ways to learn Spanish. The best way to learn Spanish is actively working with a native speaker — even better to grow up in a bilingual family — to me that is the gold standard. Hiring a tutor or immersing yourself in a Spanish-speaking country are the best ways as well. If those ways are not possible for you, self-study is an option.
It seems like there are numerous ways to learn Spanish passively, from reviewing library books to buying books on Amazon to downloading a language learning app. Why should you take my course? After all, I am not a native Spanish speaker. I start off doing a deep dive into pronunciation, especially for people who speak English as their native language and will speak Spanish with English influences. This approach helps you learn Spanish sounds so you can feel more confident. Then we jump into common greetings, expressions, pronouns, negative words, vocabulary, and a long look at verbs — plus more!
My goal is to get a beginner to a place where they could hold a basic conversation with an in-person tutor. Why is that my target? I’m currently learning French and I’m a beginner. I took a year of college French and I’ve lost it. I would love to hire a native French speaker, but I can speak very little and have low confidence. I’ve even got a 180+ day French streak on the Duolingo app, but I cannot say very much. An online course like the one I have created here in Spanish Grammar Workshop (but in French) would be the push I need to cover the pronunciation basics and be prepared to attempt real conversation in French.
