Learn Spanish Language


Spanish, sometimes referred to as "Castilian" (in Spanish: "Español" and "Castellano") is the official language throughout the country of Spain. It should however be noted that the country is also home to a number of other languages, some of which have been declared co-official in the particular territories in which they are principally spoken. These languages include Aranese (Aranés) in Catalonia, Basque (Euskera) in the Basque Country and Navarre, Catalan (Catalŕ) in Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and in the Valencian Community (where the language is known as "Valencian"), and Galician (Galego) in Galicia.

Spanish is also widely spoken beyond Spain: it is the second most spoken language by native speakers, with perhaps as many as 400 million falling into this category. Apart Spain itself, Spanish is in fact the official or co-official language in most Latin American countries, as well as in the African country of Equitorial Guinea. The language is also one of six official languages used by the United Nations, and perhaps the third most common (after English and Chinese) language in use on the Internet.

Learning Spanish can be an intellectually stimulating experience, and of course will allow you to converse with speakers of the language - very useful you plan on visiting a country for a vacation, and of course a major advantage in business. The good news is that learning Spanish need not be impossibly difficult - there are many tools that can help including language learning software, Internet web sites for learning Spanish, and of course books. You might be surprised at how quickly you can progress - and of course, if you visit Spain or another Spanish-speaking country, and immerse yourself in the language, you'll improve even faster.

Product Description:

If you're like the majority of US high school graduates, you've (1) studied Spanish at some point and (2) already forgotten most of it.

It's time for a new language-learning method: One that teaches Spanish the way native speakers talk, using advanced mnemonic techniques you won't be able to forget.

Accelerated Spanish is the proven method that has trained hundreds of students, bringing dozens to fluency in a very short period of time.

This three-volume system has the potential to make you fully fluent in Spanish.

  • Volume One teaches you to think like a native Spanish speaker and gives you the vocabulary that makes up 50% of the Spanish language.
  • Volume Two builds on that foundation, giving you 80% of the vocabulary, and it allows you to converse comfortably on a variety of subjects.
  • Volume Three enables you to reach practical fluency in Spanish, enough to have an intelligent conversation with a native speaker on nearly any subject.

As you find yourself engulfed in an imaginary world with a yellow sky, demented shopkeepers, and clumsy stuffed pandas, your mind and senses will be challenged at every moment. From the very first chapter, you will begin to understand why truly getting into the mindset of another language requires your mind to experience a new world.

Timothy Moser is an accelerated learning expert and Spanish coach. In 2014 he founded Master of Memory, a leading online accelerated learning center. Timothy hosts 3 top-ranked podcasts, including Accelerated Spanish, where he applies advanced learning techniques to languages, inspiring and empowering listeners to learn Spanish and achieve fluency in a language for free. His course, Accelerated Spanish, is the only online Spanish coaching program that guarantees Spanish fluency.

"I was able to have hour-long conversations with native speakers and read almost any text in Spanish with no problem within 8 weeks. Highly recommended!" - Raghav H.

INTRODUCING: 9 Captivating Short Stories to Learn Spanish

Are you bored of the traditional methods people tell you to use to learn Spanish? Are you bored of all those dusty grammar books that pile up making everything look so hard? What if we told you there’s a better, more enjoyable way to learn Spanish and grow your vocabulary exponentially? Well, guess what? There is! The best way to learn Spanish is by reading short stories The problem? You might feel like you don’t know where to start, or you may feel lost trying to read whatever pops up on the internet. And that’s exactly why we created this book.

Short Stories + Foreign Language = Faster Learning

We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language once you frame that learning into a certain context (for example, a short story). Short stories allow you to put what you’ve learned so far into practice, allowing you to expand your vocabulary quickly, make sense of ideas, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the Spanish language. Short stories work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you read the 9 captivating short stories we’ve prepared for you, you will learn Spanish without even realizing you’re learning it! Your goal is to simply focus on a single story at a time (they only a take few minutes to read). The stories consist of multiple genres, including adventure, fantasy, mystery, romance, just to name a new. We wanted these stories to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on reading to find out what happens next. That’s the very best way to learn, don’t you think?

BONUS: Vocabulary Lists, Multiple Choice Exercises & Summaries of Each Story

In this book you’ll find a total of 9 short stories in Spanish. Each story is divided into three chapters. You start by reading Chapter one, then you go to the Annex, and you’ll find there a quick summary of what you just read, a vocabulary list, and several multiple choice exercises intended to help you forge a deeper understanding of the story as it goes. Once you’re done with this section, you move on to Chapter 2, then Chapter 3, and then you move on to the next story. It’s so easy and fun you won’t believe it.
