Spanish is definitely one of the most popular languages in the world. There’s a whole bunch of benefits to knowing Spanish. Let me just mention a few. In our global society you can make use of it in business, becoming a more valuable worker, in private life, on vacation, chatting online, reading literature and press or watching satellite TV. In some parts of the world, like for instance in both Americas, Spanish is either the main language spoken or one of the main ones. And I could go on and on like that…
This is an intensive course, which means it covers the basics from level zero (absolute beginner) and then you wander across all the lectures and learn quite a lot of stuff. The explanations are concise and clear. You should have no difficulty following and understanding them. A lot of stuff and a lot of practice.
Contents and Overview
This course is pretty comprehensive. It contains all the basic areas of Spanish grammar. Starting off with Spanish spelling and pronunciation, touching upon all the main grammatical categories in the first sections and then going into much more detail in the following sections. The language I use is simple and should be easily understood by absolute beginners.
This course is divided into 25 sections, each of them covering a broad topic subdivided into lectures. The pace is up to you, you can go through the easier parts faster and then take more time to study the more sophisticated ones.
To help you memorize and practice all the new stuff, there are loads of exercises. Most lectures are accompanied by additional resources. These are downloadable files with exercises (with key). There also files with vocabulary revision and, first of all, the main text file containing the material covered in the lecture video.
After you finish each section, there’s a quiz for you that covers the material discussed in that section.

Here to share what I know.
I studied linguistics and computer science. Since 1999 I’ve been working as a teacher. I teach languages and programming. For the couple recent years I’ve worked as a Python developer as well. I’m especially into GUI and 3D programming and 3D modeling with Blender. My favorite GUI framework is Kivy (I also wrote a Kivy book for beginners) and my favorite game engine is Panda3D. I love this job.
