Learn Spanish en español
Often many learners wonder and post questions like:
- What do I do after I completed the Spanish tree and/or the reverse tree?
- How can I think in Spanish? I don't want to translate in my head.
- Can you recommend a curriculum?
If you're a learner that would like to improve your command of the language why not learn Spanish from native Spanish speakers en español. At the intermediate stage I find English explanations slow and boring, so I decided hacer un búsqueda en español como "aprender español." Por supuesto, encontré muchos videos en YouTube! Here are some Spanish Youtubers teaching español.
If you don't know, or haven't tried it before, the Universidad de Salamanca occasionally offers free Español Salamanca A2 classes. Their modules videos are on YouTube.
If you know of any good Spanish video resources in Spanish . . . por favor comparte!
The 4th edition of "Español Salamanca A2" will be offered on October 20th. It is free and you can sign up at:
It is not a program. It is a free MOOC. Massive Open Online Course. I've done it before. It's an A2 level course I think even useful for intermediate level students. At some point, they might have a higher level course as well.
Besides watching videos, reading lesson notes and doing the tests, you can interact with other students in Spanish in the forums. Some of the optional exercises for the course is actually done with forum and wiki posts.
I've found "En buen español" useful.
I watch Spanish programs on YouTube and I use a monolingual dictionary BUT honestly I never thought about trying those videos until I started watching a grammar resource I recommended earlier today. Why watch it in English? That's kind of boring, it's not challenging and it feels slow. Yes, I wonder why I never thought about it.
I did try the Universidad de Salamanca last year. That's a fun course, the videos are excellent. I highly recommend that and the "Tu escuela de español" videos.
BTW, I can't cook well. So I decided to watch some HOW to Cook videos en español of course. Two birds, one stone. ;-)
Both the University of Malaga and the University of Salamanca offer intensive Spanish courses, and you can sign up for as little as two weeks. I am going to try one of these as soon as I get the opportunity. Here are the links:
