We continue with our series of Learn Spanish from the News where I take short news clips and turn them into short Spanish lessons by teaching you some of the language contained within said news clip. This one is about how the Prado Museum has adapted to the recent... Read more
And here is the latest installment of Friday Linkfest where I just post a few links to resources I think will help you learn Spanish or languages in general along with a short description. If you have any suggestions for next Friday’s post please shoot me an... Read more
In this series, “Learn Spanish from the News”, I’ll take short news clips and use them to teach you some of the Spanish used in them. Today we’ve got a clip just a bit over a minute long from RTVE in Spain talking about the reopening of The... Read more
I get the appeal: sounds like fun, makes sense on the surface, get a little cultured, get a little drunk, catch of a bit of clap, come back home fluent in Spanish. However, it usually doesn’t work like that (fun-drinking-STDs yes, fluent in Spanish, no). I say... Read more
And here are just links to resources I’ve found recently that I think will help you learn Spanish or even just languages in general. I’ll include a short description with each one. I try to do these every Friday though that doesn’t always happen.... Read more

I thought I’d do something a bit shorter today, especially since I’ve got another post scheduled to come out in a couple hours (I use a short comedy sketch on YouTube to teach you some Spanish, definitely keep an eye out for it!), so I’m going to... Read more
Today, as part of my new series of short Spanish lessons, we’re going to briefly (I promise) cover three words/expressions: deberse (most commonly seen as “se debe a”), pérdida, and abarcar. All three come from a single sentence used in the Spanish... Read more
And here’s the second in my series of short Spanish lessons where I teach vocabulary, expressions, and short phrases. Today, as in the previous lesson, we’re going to be looking at words and phrases from the Spanish news program, Telediario. The... Read more
So I decided I’ll start doing short, easily consumable Spanish lessons for you guys. I hate writing long posts and you hate reading them, plus a language is better learned through lots of small chunks consistently over a long period of time rather than through... Read more
