Hi 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 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:
