If you’ve always wanted to learn Spanish, but didn’t think it was possible because you were terrible at Spanish in high school, or you don’t get sucked into Rosetta Stone-style hype–you’ve come to the right place. I’m a normal person, not some big company and not some native Spanish speaker. I’m not a natural language learner at all actually. My first brush with Spanish ended with me getting an F in high school! But somewhere along the way, I fell in love! I’m not sure if I love Spanish because I love traveling, or I love traveling because I love Spanish (and food). But I love them both. Naturally, I want more people to love what I love, but I know that you probably don’t see Spanish like I do… not yet! That’s the point of this podcast. I want to show you that there is ANOTHER WAY! That most of the strategies and tactics they used to teach us Spanish in high school are IGNORANT. They are ignorant to our plight. I know your mistakes. I understand why you make them. They were my mistakes too! I remember the pain and the agony of having to figure it all out myself because... let’s just say... I was underwhelmed with the resources out there. Well, now with these videos (or audios) you don’t don’t have to waste the years I did.

    It used to drive me crazy when I’d see the same sentence in the same context–except one used “hubo” and the other used “había”. In this video, I explain how that could be.

    P.S. After much deliberation, I’ve decided to extend the “Name Your Price” special on the Lifetime Membership until further notice (click here for the details). When you become a Lifetime Member, you get access to all my premium courses (now and in the future) for one low price. That includes my newest premium course, the “Quedar” Mini-Course.

    Normally, it’s $167 to become a Lifetime Member. But, during these crazy times, the price is WHATEVER YOU WANT TO PAY. This is something I started back in March of 2020, and it WILL be ending sometime relatively soon. I’m not sure exactly when, but the end is in sight.

Hola, Soy Jordan

Ok, I'm not Jordan, he is but all of his videos are fast paced and get to the point and entertaining at the same time.

Love this guy!

My wife and I took two years off and are traveling through Mexico, Central America and currently in Colombia. The Spanish dude has been with us the whole way. Lol
I’m not sure what Nika’s beef was (bad review) or why she would say nasty things. These are the same videos that are on his website and his YouTube channel. This man puts out plenty of free content. He also has premium content you can pay for. Now due to the corona virus crisis he is offering his Premium content for WHAT YOU CAN PAY!! who does that?! We gladly took advantage of that. We paid him what we could and are loving the verb conjugation videos. Also he gets to the point which I love. You can knock these video out. Enjoy friends

Making HUGE Progress!

This guy is amazingly clear, intelligent and thorough. Most importantly, he understands the way that people both learn and commonly get confused with the spanish language. I've made so much progress with undestanding the functions of spanish, as opposed to the more typical lessons of monotonous structure-less memorization of words.

Highly recommend the full class!
