Jim is great in Spanish, but Matthew and I have really been struggling.

Recently we came upon a perfect Spanish course – no complicated grammar or stuff like that.

The course boils it down to the essential words you have to know, and some easy-to-follow rules.

Yes, we are promoting the course, but it is something that we really believe in.

So much so that I have let the author of the course, Marcus, do the rest of today’s blog.

Here goes:

I’ve been to bathrooms on building sites, mechanics workshops and junkyards, I’ve seen their calendars…but I have never seen anything like what I saw in the video store.

My son did his get-me-to-a-bathroom-quick-dance.

The young guy behind the counter saw the emergency.  He quickly came to our aid and let us use the staff bathroom.

And there it was…

Oh Dios mío, (Oh my God!)

Oh the humanity.

There on the wall right next to the throne was …  a chart of Latin verbs.

When we came out I had to ask what that chart of Latin verbs was doing on the wall.

It turned out the store manager was studying Latin at university.  She was straining so hard to learn Latin that she had to study when she was…

Lets not get into it.

At first glance that chart looked very familiar.  The Latin verb endings look a lot like Spanish verb endings.

But!

While studying charts every spare moment may help with Latin, Spanish is very different.

Studying Latin is an academic exercise.  After all, have you met any ancient Romans lately?

En cambio (on the other hand)  Spanish is a vibrant living language with 420 million native speakers.  It’s the official language of 22 countries.  If you plan on speaking with any one of those 420 million hispanohablantes (Spanish speakers) in real life, my advice is flush the verb charts.

If you’re studying Spanish verb charts in the bathroom, I promise you that you are not using the right methods.

If you relying on a chart you’ll always be at the mercy of the chart before you speak.

You want your Spanish to be natural.

The good news is it’s much easier to speak fluent Spanish than the typical verb charts the boring textbook and endless grammar rules.

There’s a sideways approach to Spanish verbs that make them dead easy.  Once you know how to use this approach you can rip the verb charts off the wall.

Check out what I mean, here.

Adios for now…

  • Becky:
    We advertise two courses, and they are both very good. Mexican Spanish is a bit different from what they speak in Spain. The TV is also a great teacher.
