spanishdict, spanish dictionary, best online spanish dictionaryHi guys, short little post here, primarily to share a video with you I just did but I also wanted to add some things that I didn’t get to in the video.  I’ve mentioned several times that SpanishDict is my preferred Spanish dictionary and my preferred Spanish verb conjugator, and I finally got around to doing a proper post about it.  It’s an extraordinarily useful tool for anyone learning Spanish that’s far, far more than just a dictionary, it also helps you learn/look up idioms, sayings, expressions, slang, as well as conjugates verbs better than any other tool I’ve ever seen, plus it has videos of native speakers pronouncing the great majority of all the words in their dictionary (which is huge, that’s a massive undertaking, that’s tens of thousands of videos), plus they’ve got a great grammar reference section as well as free Spanish lessons on their YouTube channel.  Check it out and be sure to look at the bit below the video where I go into the other areas of the site I didn’t get to in the video:

Additionally be sure to check out SpanishDict’s section on Spanish grammar and syntax – this is a great little list of various Spanish grammar and syntax components, they have good, easy to understand explanations and a quiz at the end of each one – as well as SpanishDict’s channel on YouTube where they have tons of lessons (aimed at beginners, they’re very clear and easy to understand) such as Por vs. Para and their excellent 2-part series of videos on the subjunctive which I used as the basis for my very popular post on that subject called The Spanish Subjunctive Explained + W.E.I.R.D.O System (awesome little mnemonic device for dealing with the subjunctive in Spanish).

I hope that was interesting, let me know what you think in the comments (and would like me to write about in the future), also...  If you thought the above was at all useful and you want to learn (or are learning) Spanish, please give me a chance and read what I have to say about my book below!  Thank you so much for checking out my blog and I hope you've enjoyed my writing.

I learned to speak conversational Spanish in six months using TV shows, movies, and even comics: I then wrote a book on how you can, too

I have a whole method and a book I wrote about it called The Telenovela Method where I teach you how to learn Spanish from popular media like TV shows, movies, music, books, etc. that you can all find online for free.  It was the #1 new release in the Spanish Language Instruction section on Amazon for nearly a month after it came out and currently has 17 reviews there with a 4.9/5 stars average.  It's available for $7.99-$9.99 for the e-book version depending on who you buy it from (Kindle version on Amazon is now $7.99) and $16.99 for the paperback (occasionally a bit cheaper, again, depending on who you buy it from).

It's currently available in both e-book and paperback from:

Learn Spanish from Popular Media (movies, TV shows, music videos, books, even comics!) Using Mostly FREE Online Resources - Here's How...

I tried to learn French with self-study books and then classes (4 years!) in high school and failed...I tried Spanish and Russian while in university and failed (and got kicked out of a French class but that's another story)...then, 10 years ago, I took another shot at Spanish using a simple method I picked up from a friend: studying (not just watching) Spanish-language TV shows: I was conversationally fluent in six months.

Using popular media is a great way to learn a language, but you have to know:

A) How to do it, and...

B) Where to find said popular media.

If you'll be so trustworthy as to give me your email address below, I'll help you do this.  I'll teach you how to do it (how to deal with Spanish that's spoken "too fast" for you to understand let alone imitate, how to work with stuff that only provides English subtitles or none at all, how to learn grammar when you don't get a grammar lesson with the material because it's a movie/song/etc.) and where to find great, informative, entertaining sources of Spanish-language media - I mean stuff that's actually popular with current, adult native speakers, not just material made and intended for non-native students of the language (which can be dull and inauthentic).

Sign up below, now, and will kick things off right away with the first lesson on how to use material intended for native children (great stuff for beginners: it's authentic but simple, slow, and easy to understand) plus a bonus: my list of the Top 10 Free Online Resources for Learning Spanish.
