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 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'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:
