THE SECRET TO LEARNING TO SPEAK SPANISH SUCCESSFULLY
Speaking is controlled by mental images of sounds, words, sentences, etc. -not by muscles. It’s THE SOUNDS IN YOUR HEAD that form the sounds that come from your mouth.
You must burn the sounds and patterns of the Spanish language into your head through LISTENING. Develop your Spanish listening skills before anything else.
Phrases: Always learn Spanish phrases, not individual words. Successful Spanish learners learn phrases -vocabulary in context. When you learn phrases you're learning how to use a word correctly with other words -that is, you're learning grammar naturally. Moreover, when you learn phrases through listening, you're learning pronunciation too.
Repetition: Listen repeatedly to each Spanish lesson (5 to 6 minute lesson). Listen to each lesson many, many times. Listen to the same lesson over and over again. You should listen to each lesson 30 to 50 times before you go to the next one. An MP3 player is a powerful tool to learn languages faster.

LEARN TO SPEAK SPANISH WITH YOUR EARS
If you want to learn to speak Spanish automatically and naturally just like a native speaker, then develop your Spanish listening skills first.
Listening provides the foundation for speaking. The speaking ability grows out of the listening ability. Listening leads speaking and pulls it along. As your listening ability improves, it will pull your speaking ability up, too. Your brain needs LOTS of listening for effortless speech to emerge. If you focus on listening first, your speaking ability will emerge naturally even though you've never practised it. When you learn how to speak Spanish by only listening to Spanish first, you will train your brain to think in Spanish and when you think in Spanish, you no longer translate, you no longer think about grammar, pronunciation or vocabulary. The Spanish language will become a deep part of you, just like your own native language; the hesitation, the strain, the stress, the doubt, the confusion, all gone. Learn how to speak Spanish by developing your Spanish listening skills first and get the results you want.
THE ABILITY TO SPEAK SPANISH DEVELOPS FROM LISTENING
Linguistic scientific research over decades has shown that listening is the first skill you must develop in learning a second language. Listen first approach methods are much, much more powerful and effective by far than other second language teaching methods. The brain is naturally predisposed to learn languages through listening. Listening skills in a second language should be developed in advance of speaking. Speaking practice is only recommended once you have some understanding of the language. Speaking from day one is an unnatural and stressful situation. The number one activity to develop your speaking skills is listening. The most powerful kind of input for learning how to speak Spanish is listening to Spanish.
FOCUS ON LISTENING THE FIRST FEW MONTHS
The highly successful Spanish learners, before trying to say their first Spanish words, they listen, listen and listen! They have a listening approach. Children, even teenagers learn to speak a second language by first developing their listening skills and thus they always end up speaking the second language well. This is the children’s secret to learning a second language when they move to a new country. In the beginning, the first few months, children naturally give special attention to listening. This period of just listening is vitally important to the process of natural language learning. During this period, subconsciously, children are learning to understand the language, that is, they are naturally acquiring vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. Language learning is an unconscious process, and while it's happening we are often not aware that it is happening. In the beginning give special attention to listening to learn how to speak Spanish well. Through listening you will learn to think in Spanish just like a native speaker.
Dr. Paul Sulzberger has found that the best way to learn a second language is through repeated exposure to its sound patterns, even if the learner doesn't have a clue what it all means. "However crazy it might sound, just listening to the language, even though you don't understand it, is critical. A lot of language teachers may not accept that,"
Dr. James Asher sees developing listening comprehension skills as the most efficient way of developing spoken language skills.
THE POWER OF LEARNING SPANISH PHRASES BY LISTENING
A phrase is a group of words that naturally go together in a certain way. A phrase puts the word in context. By studying Spanish phrases and not individual words, you will learn more vocabulary, you will learn it faster and you will remember it longer. Also, when you learn Spanish phrases, you are not just learning vocabulary, you are learning how to use that word correctly with other words, that is, you are learning grammar naturally and intuitively. Another bonus, learning Spanish phrases by listening will also help you with your Spanish pronunciation; you will learn to speak with the right rhythm and intonation; your pronunciation will be clear and easy to understand, you will sound more natural. In short, when you learn Spanish by listening to Spanish phrases, you are automatically learning Spanish grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, THREE FOR ONE! GREAT!
LEARNING SPANISH FASTER WITH REPETITIVE LISTENING
Repetition is the mother of all learning
To speak Spanish easily and automatically, you must learn every phrase DEEPLY. How? Easily, just listen to each Spanish lesson repeatedly to the point where understanding is automatic. You must put the Spanish language deep into your brain. Focus on the most common phrases that are used on a daily basis in a wide variety of situations. Mastery of the fundamentals is more important than a lot of advanced knowledge. You need a lot of repetitive listening to master the Spanish language. Our brain is a natural language learning machine.
Adults can be fluent past any age. Adults and children can do it right but only adults can do it wrong. Adults of any age can do what children do; moreover, ADULTS CAN LEARN LANGUAGES FASTER WITH REPETITION. Turn on your MP3 player and listen to each of the lessons a lot, again and again. You should listen to each lesson 30 to 50 times, more is better than less. Repetitive listening shortens the time you spend on learning a second language. Speech will develop naturally and spontaneously after learners internalize (subconsciously learn) the Spanish language patterns through repetitive listening.
A BETTER WAY TO LEARN SPANISH
It is common knowledge that when people move to a new country the children will end up speaking the second language natively and the adults won’t. The widely accepted explanation is that children have a special ‘gift’ that they lose as they grow up.
THE MISTAKE: Children can do something that adults cannot. THE TRUTH: Adults can do what children do. It’s just typical adult behaviour (not adult inadequacy) that interferes.
Children learn to speak a second language by listening. Adults learn to speak a second language by speaking (e.g. interactive audio courses).
“Practice makes perfect” Children practice speaking after they have some understanding of the second language, that is, they practice speaking after they have the sounds and patterns of the Spanish language in their heads. Adults practice speaking from day one.
Children guess the meaning of what they hear from the context (children learn to think in Spanish). Adults translate, analyse and want to learn the second language in all its bits and pieces (adults learn to think about Spanish).
Child's secret to become near-native; ears open, mouth shut for a few months.
To be successful, copy the most successful people. Master the Spanish language like a native.
LEARNING SPANISH AS AN ADULT
You do not need to be a child or live in a Spanish speaking country to learn Spanish well; you simply need to learn it like a child acquires a second language naturally, that is, by first developing your listening skills. Adults have not lost the talent to learn a second language as they grew up. What has happened is that adults have learned to do it wrong. Adults’ behaviour, not lack of talent, prevents them from succeeding. Both forced speaking (speaking from day one -interactive audio lessons) and analysing the language (studying grammar) prevent you from learning to speak Spanish automatically and naturally. Focus on listening first and your fluency, confidence and correctness will grow. Listening skills are strongly correlated with the overall language proficiency.
The reason that children always end up speaking the second language as native speakers is because they learn to speak by listening, they develop their listening skills first. And the reason that adults don’t is because they learn to speak by speaking.
It’s the Spanish sounds in your head that form the Spanish sounds that come from your mouth. The only way to put the sounds of the Spanish language in your head is through repetitive listening.
LEARN TO SPEAK SPANISH WITH A PROVEN METHOD
Read what some of our students have to say about their experience learning Spanish with us. How my course has helped people speak Spanish across the world.
“Have taken a number of Spanish learning courses and they all founder in that you end up being able to read and write (a little), speak (a little) and understand just about nothing. This course is different. You hear spoken Spanish (spoken at a fair lick) and …after a while, you can discern the words and the meanings without even realising that you are doing so. You understand spoken Spanish. It is a pretty painless way to learn. Simply by listening and re-listening you find yourself understanding. The course is well crafted and thought out. I consider it the best Spanish learning course on the market. A five star course.”
Mark Diamond, UK

Aleska Dubanowski, Poland
“I bought your course about a month or so ago and have applied myself as you suggested. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the results.

That said, I also review all prior lessons several times a week. Thanks for putting together such a great approach to learning. Thoroughly enjoying the course!”
David Gee, USA
“Merci beaucoup! The best Spanish course I have ever seen. Before joining, my Spanish speaking was terrible, I’ve been studying it for years and years, on and off. I was frustrated. I didn't think I could ever speak Spanish well. Now I feel relaxed when I speak Spanish and I speak it automatically, just like you said I would!”
Marie Darraidou, France
“Jenny's audio course has been a huge help for me. After studying Spanish for over a year from books and online courses, my listening ability was almost non-existent. The method she has developed is unique, and is exactly what I needed. It's actually material to PRACTICE. It has a gentle learning curve which adds more advanced grammar, idioms and verbs as you progress. It is also fantastic value for money. Please give this a go! You won't regret it!”
Andrew Taylor, New Zealand
“Thank you so much for this course. I've been listening to it daily for a few weeks now, an average of an hour or so a day. Really enjoying it, and my ability to say things that I want with less thinking increases day by day.”
Dmitri Vasiliev, Russia
“I am several weeks into the course and am enjoying it very much. Super easy, I’m listening to my mp3 player while cleaning the house, driving the car or doing the yard work. The speaker’s pronunciation seems very clear, and not “muddy”. I really like the concept that I can just relax and listen and be able to speak Spanish soon, easily and naturally. I feel more confident already. Very exciting and glad I found you!”

"There are many talented people who haven't fulfilled their dreams because they over thought it, or they were too cautious, and were unwilling to make the leap of faith." James Cameron
HOW TO LEARN SPANISH VOCABULARY
Spanish word lists by themselves will not help you enough to build your communication skills. Research shows that words are learned from context; words have to be stringed together in a meaningful way for you to learn them effectively, that is, by learning Spanish phrases and not individual words, you will learn vocabulary and also you will remember it longer; furthermore by learning Spanish phrases by listening you will learn to speak Spanish 2 to 3 times faster.
One of the most credible and reference studies of Spanish word frequency was conducted by Professor Mark Davies of Brigham Young University, it concluded that the first 1,000 most frequently used Spanish words should get you close to 90% of all verbal communication; the inventory of regular street speech among native Spanish speakers. Please bear in mind that if you know the top 1,000 frequently used Spanish words, you might not be able to say one correct Spanish phrase; but if you know only 100 Spanish phrases you will be pleasantly surprised at how many correct Spanish phrases you will be able to say. When you know 1,000 Spanish phrases you will be able to interact with native Spanish speakers with fluency and spontaneity.
This audio course has more than 10,000 Spanish phrases which will serve you well to subconsciously master the Spanish language. The ultimate outcome of repetitive listening of phrases is the internalization of the Spanish language patterns and sounds, and not the memorization of phrases. When it comes to learning to speak a new language your subconscious mind just does a much, much better job than your conscious mind. Your subconscious mind is fast and can handle many things at the same time; your conscious analytical mind is slow and can handle one thing at a time. You will acquire a Spanish lexicon in context and you will be able to say nearly anything you need to in some way or another. Fluent speech develops from intensive listening.
LEARNING SPANISH PRONUNCIATION
Clear Spanish pronunciation is essential for speaking Spanish with confidence and also for understanding spoken Spanish well; in other words, the better your Spanish pronunciation, the better people will understand you and the easier you will find it to understand them.
Spanish pronunciation is very straightforward because Spanish is a phonetic language. Unlike English, almost everything is spelled as it sounds, and sounds as it is spelled, that is, in general, Spanish words are pronounced exactly as they are written.
You do not learn Spanish pronunciation effectively: by reading pronunciation textbooks, by watching pronunciation videos, by studying phonetic symbols or by someone telling you how to pronounce Spanish.
You learn Spanish pronunciation successfully by listening to the Spanish language.
HOW SHOULD YOU LISTEN TO LEARN SPANISH PRONUNCIATION WELL
Repetition, repetition, repetition! Listening repeatedly to a five to six minute Spanish audio lesson for an hour is much, much more powerful than listening once to a one hour Spanish audio lesson. Intensive listening is the key to clear Spanish pronunciation. Before you start trying to speak Spanish, spend a few months tuning your ears to the sounds and rhythms of the Spanish language. You will gradually become familiar with the Spanish pronunciation and start to be able to pick out words, phrases and sentences. Eventually you'll be able to understand most if not all of what you hear. Your mouth and tongue will effortlessly and naturally find the way to clearly say the sounds that are deep in your brain. Your clear pronunciation is the product of intensive listening. Speech with clear pronunciation develops from intensive listening. Moreover, by listening to Spanish phrases, you will learn to sound more natural; you will develop the right rhythm, stress and intonation more effectively when you speak.
