Day 2 of the Learn Spanish Challenge! Watch the video!

“Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly to get it started.”

Learn Spanish Challenge, Day 2
Basic Needs Section 1, Unit 1:

Review Game (Soccer, Lingo Dingo)
Virtual Instructor
Pronunciation Classroom

Realize that you aren’t going to be perfect in the beginning. Remember that it’s worth it. Those 2 things are very important to your success in acquiring a new skill or achieving a new goal.  Watch for improvement in the mistakes you make. Let that motivate you, not discourage you. You have the goal to become fluent in basic conversational Spanish, and if you follow the “Learn Spanish Challenge” everyday, then you will achieve that goal.

These videos are being posted on the blog under the category “Learn Spanish Challenge”. You can also watch the videos on our YouTube channel, and I post them daily on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Follow the instructions given by Dave in the video, and you won’t be doing poorly for long.

    I am loving the daily challenge. I don’t have the version you are showing since I got mine a couple of years ago but, since I have been procrastinating with my Spanish, this is an excellent motivator for me. I’m looking forward to sticking with the Challenge. Hasta manana

      Rene, I finally paid $20 to upgrade to the new version via download, and it was worth every penny. They have added so many new exercises, including dialogue comprehension which is wonderful practice in understanding native speakers.

    I did a large portion of version 4.8 and had already begun 5.0. Following your daily leadership is both motivating and helpful. I found the pace of v 4.8 to be easier to follow and also good to get my confidence up so that I could tackle 5.0. I think the addition of the virtual instructor is very helpful.

    Since I’ve been over these early lessons several times, I am changing how I use some of the material. Ex: I don’t look at the game question until I have answered the question using the audio only.

    Muchas gracias, amigos.

    I have been charging through Version 4.8 on a daily basis. I downloaded the demo version of 5.0 and find many nice new features that I like. I especially like the lesson tracking feature. I am not a real organized person and do not note where I am in the program and end up “reviewing” sections that I have already mastered. The bowling feature is really helpful in letting you know how well your oral Spanish skills are developing. The shooting game should be a big hit to the younger students, but we oldsters find it fun and helpful also. I have struggled with ADD for decades and have previously skipped over language learning opportunities. This program cuts the lessons into bite size pieces that I can digest before my mind drifts away to another planet. I am doing much better by completing two to four 15 minute sessions a day spread out over the day and fit in between other tasks. Now, I am off to the laundry!
