A recent conversation with a subscriber to my email list, Michael Rosenthal, led to him sending me a document that I think the rest of you will find useful.  It’s a list of what Anthony Lauder calls “conversational connectors”.  Anthony runs the site FluentCzech and was featured in a blog post by Benny Lewis, which is what led Michael to this list.

He converted the list (originally a list of Czech conversational connectors) into Spanish, so this is a list of Spanish conversational connectors.  I’m talking about such expressions as “frankly speaking” (hablando francamente), “between you and me” (entre nosotros), “I presume that” (supungo que), etc.  It was send to me originally as a PDF file, which I’ve embedded below:

I hope that helps you guys, please consider subscribing to my email list (below) if it was!



I see you've been here a while (3 minutes, 30 seconds, to be precise)!

That must mean you like what you're reading!  You're finding it interesting, useful, helpful!  Oh that's wonderful, there's nothing more rewarding for a writer than knowing their material accomplished its goal of helping someone, of telling them something they didn't know before, of providing them with useful information!

Would you like more of the same? I can help you, Spanish students and teachers!

I have whole series of emails (many series!), lists of the most useful free online resources, and more to help beginning/intermediate Spanish students as well as Spanish teachers (a lot of that information is useful to both for different reasons).  If you'll subscribe to my email list right now I'll immediately send you my list of the Top 10 Free Online Spanish-Learning Resources as well as the first in my "Getting Started Learning Spanish" series, with much more to follow (e.g. my "Learn Spanish for Real" series where I teach idioms and slang from real-life contexts, "Learn Spanish from the News", "Learn Spanish on YouTube", and more!).

Thank you so much for giving me a chance and subscribing to my questionable writings, you'll receive your first two in the next few minutes - Andrew
