January 3rd, 2012

Now that you have recovered from the holidays, it’s time to get back into real life. I hope you had a great time and I’m glad you made it through it all alive and well. If you didn’t take time to set some new goals for the new year, you don’t have to wait until 2013 to set new goals. Begin right now and write down your goals for 2012.

A new year can bring new hopes, dreams, challenges, and more more things to your life. One of my goals for this year is to give you a challenge on each of my blog posts this year. If I’m not challenging you and helping you learn Spanish, then I’m not doing my job as well as I should.

I want to make sure that I’m providing you with information you’d like to know related to learning Spanish. So today’s challenge will be quite simple:

Answer these questions in the comment section:
What would you like to learn this year from this blog?
How can we improve?

    I have 123.All are great.However 1 does not go far enough.What is needed is lessons on how to use the tenses.Fue and voy a just does not do it.What about era and estaba.Etc.I hope you caan help becuse it really hard stuff.

  2. Susan says:

    I have a very hard time with tenses. I found a website that offers verb charts, but there are so many tenses. Maybe we could get some help with some verb tenses.

      Hola Susan,

      We have 2 great verb courses that teach how to conjugate with whiteboard-type lessons, then there are about 5,000 drills (in the form of games and activities) in each that help you put into practice what you’ve learned.

      For a free 7-day trial of each, click here: Free Spanish Trials (Click on Level II and Level III).

      Hopefully that helps.

      Hasta luego!

    I have a goal to work on my Spanish comprehension this year. Maybe a few sentences or even a paragraph in Spanish would be good practice so we can try to understand it? With an English translation underneath to check ourselves? Honestly, I love everything your company does to help me learn. Keep up the excellent work, and thank you!

    • Kim says:

      P.S. Could you please check your “spam” folder under the Spanish forum? I’ve tried to post a question twice and I still don’t see it, and it has been several days. It is about using a bilingual Bible to help learn Spanish.

      • gail says:

        lots of folks like learning with bilingual Bible

        • Kim says:

          I’ve noticed there is an NVI version, equivalent to the English NIV, and an RVR 1960, equivalent to the English NKJV. My question is, would one of these be better than the other for someone just learning (I am almost done with Visual Link Level II). If anyone could chime in with an opinion here, that would be great!

    I had idea the Fiesta Friday would be like a chat where we log in and chat in Spanish with each other. Dave would be in the chat some times as would Jake and maybe volunteers could be trained to help out. Some how connect us. Maybe have it so people could join only at certain times so folks would not be like joining in middle.
    At SpanishDict both times I have gone about 6 folks were
    their but no real conversation. And when LiveMocha had
    classes not many showed up… But maybe it would work here.
    The way I see it LiveMocha did not have enuff folks learning and SpanishDict does not have a leader.

    Finding the blog is not easy. Great place when you find it. Idea make a tab at top of page called ¨blog¨´
    When you do the videos it would be nice to have levels
    Beginner say expanding on a level one topic and then
    One for each of the verb levels. Maybe expand by giving
    more group three words. Or more infinitives. Give the lesson your expanding a short review and put your “commerical” incorporated in lesson. “this is covered in
    ____________ and we give more detail and practice with
    the program. So have the commerical be something that
    is a teaser to get folks to want to learn more. and then
    for folks that have already gotten program give them something too. Cuz it takes practice to learn and the program will help you with that. What I really like is the word lists and it would help to have downloadable mp3 of lesson. And of course if you buy you get evan more to practice… lol I now have figured out how to get here. Took me about three weeks. Some will not try this hard.
