  • Holland H comment: what about J silent like Jalepino
    • Spanish Is Your Amigo comment: Hey Holland! The J in Jalapeño isn't silent, it actually sounds like an H in English. So the word sounds like "hal-ah-pain-yo." In Spanish, the J always sounds like an H.

  • Sandy A comment: It's too much all at once. It would be better to take just a few sounds and give several words to practice it. You flash the words so fast, it's hard to have time to practice or let it sink in.

Also, there is SpanishDict and forums and Duolingo and MyLanguageExchange and LRNGO and practice exercise websites. You can even watch movies on netflix in Spanish or listen to Spanish music. Whatever tickles your fancy. Keep up the great work!
    • will S comment: i'M SORRY i AM NOT COMPUTER LITERATE AND CAN'T SEEM TO BE ABLE TO POSY A PHOTO
  • amos y comment: Hello teacher I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful lesson I learned a lot that I am going to try and put in practice . My mother language is the german that the Amish speak in their homes and business"s in private among themselves
  • Trice R comment: much appreciation
  • Roberta V comment: Thank you. Had I not taken Spanish back in 1963-65, I would not have been able to take this all in at our very fast pace! (Adios mios!) (Not sure that was correct.) I would like to learn to speak Spanish, but I am not sure your methods are the easiest for me. I am almost 65, in May, and my ability to learn and retain on this fast pace may not be possible. I will try, before checking out other methods. I am wondering if a slower pace choice offer would benefit both teacher and student.
  • Gozel B comment: It's interesting to follow in your lesson, thanks
  • Shirley B comment: Gracious Amiga.
  • Patsy B comment: Some of the theory is looking at the English word and some looking at the Spanish word, but does not work both ways. Such as Hello...H is always silent the "e" (vowel) should have a EH sound...now if you look at the spelling of Spanish Hola..yes the "o" would have the "OH" sound. I guess just trying to find out the theory of looking at the english word. Can you explain that to me please
  • Paige K comment: this is cool
  • sweet T comment: Lesson went so fast, I caught on some what though
  • Tammie R comment: My life is quickly being filled with Spanish speaking friends. I am extremely grateful for your lessons. I want to show them how much I respect them and love them by learning their language. Thank you for making that possible.

  • charlie e comment: I am interested in learning conversational Spanish, as I love vacationing in Mexico. I usually travel in late February or March. Are you teaching Latin American Spanish or as it is spoken in Spain ?
  • Justin S comment: Also, I find that I cannot roll my r's. Is this a common problem? My sister, who is taking AP Spanish, is trying to help but she can't do anything about it.
    • Spanish Is Your Amigo comment: Very very common. I don't personally have a video that teaches the R roll, but I know that there are many tutorials on the web. Look around to see if you can find one that helps out and keep me posted.
  • selina d comment: Thanks very clear and understandale teaching
  • Nicole C comment: Great explanations, just wish it went a bit slower so I could write down all the info a little more clearer! Muchas Gracias Profesora!
  • cathie e comment: Worthwhile, but too fast
  • tom s comment: so far so good.
  • thalia p comment: how do you spell lake in spanish
    • Spanish Is Your Amigo comment: so it's "lago" and it's going to sound like "ele--ah--hey--oh." Did that help?
  • Art S comment: EH YO THAT WAS TIGHT! ME N MA BITCH LIKE YO HOOP RINGS IN YO EARS GURLLLL.
  • gabe l comment: do you have any suggestions on a site for Spanish or a set of books for Spanish
    • Spanish Is Your Amigo comment: My favorite site is SpanishDict. There's another one: http://www.colby.edu/~bknelson/SLC/index.php. I also really like the "Practice Makes Perfect" workbook series. I also have a book on amazon, "Spanish Is Your Amigo." Hope some of those help! :)
  • Laney C comment: I really understand the basics now all thanks to you. This lesson was extremely helpfull. Thank you so very much. Tu Amigo, Laney Cermak
  • Rachel H comment: I'm starting Spanish next year in high school, and this was a great lesson to put me just a bit ahead!
  • Selena V comment: Thank you for the first trial it really helps me learn the vowels and stuff lol
  • Madison C comment: This is great. It's easy and I believe after reviewing it a few times it will stick. The teacher really breaks it down. I won't only be able to speak the language I will also be able to read and write it.
  • Dawn C comment: Really useful but is it geared to American Spanish as opposed to European Spanish? I only ask because I thought the European Spanish 'Z' was pronounced 'TH' and not 'S' as instructed in the lesson.
  • alina and aniela a comment: great class, thank you!
  • b c comment: it was good, but she can speak slowly.
  • Dheepikaa B comment: I find the videos too fast, I was not sure if that was intentional. Would like some breaks between each step (like when you teach one consonant sound to the next). Before I comprehend the first or repeat the words you mention aloud, it moves on to the next step. Thanks!
  • GERI D comment: Enjoy the lesson very much, but I need more practice.
  • Fadi A comment: thanks, i am enjoying this very much.
  • Nataja B comment: I really appreciate it but I need more help. I need to learn to speak with my nina. I understand but I need more I will continue.
  • lauren c comment: thank you I always wanted to learn Spanish once I was finally in a Spanish class I wasn't comfortable with the way the teacher taught the class so this is perfect.
  • charles w comment: I love you!
