Spanish Common Phrases

Summary

Are you looking for a complete guide on common Spanish phrases? Then keep reading... I’m assuming by your choice of the nature of this book that it may be your first foray into language learning. As such, I felt that it was appropriate for me to take some time to explain some things about language learning in general, as well as the Spanish language in particular. Don’t worry, this won’t take a long time. All it takes is a collection of observations that I’ve made about language learning and Spanish itself.  The first thing that I always hear from people trying to learn a new language is that it’s overwhelmingly difficult or that they’re simply not cut out for it for this reason or that. That’s essentially a total lie. Our brains are hardwired for language. Maybe, traditional approaches to language learning have really burned you out, and you’re looking for something a tad more interactive. Well, let me tell you that you’re without a doubt making the right first steps.  People who can speak multiple languages are known as polyglots. Some are simply savants, some are hobbyists, and some are born or groomed into situations where they need to speak multiple different languages. Most polyglots will agree that the single best way to learn a language is through the concept of immersion. Why? Let me explain. Back in the olden days, we had to attach words to concepts. A tree - the tree - isn’t actually finitely a tree. It’s simply a part of being that we have called a tree. However, a Spanish speaker would call it an arból, and a French speaker would call it an arbre. So, the tree isn’t really a “tree” in any sense, it’s just there, and you happen to call it a tree. The reason I’m telling you this is because English and Spanish are, unfortunately, not from the same language family. English is a Germanic language, descending from the West Germanic languages. However, the fact that the United Kingdom is extremely close to both Spain and France and the heavy involvement of the Normans in England in the Middle Ages, there are quite a few similarities. So, let’s get started!

Summary

If you are looking for a complete Spanish language lesson strategy which includes a complete guide on Spanish common phrases, then keep reading... The first thing that I always hear from people trying to learn a new language is that it’s overwhelmingly difficult or that they’re simply not cut out for it for this reason or that. That’s essentially a total lie. Our brains are hardwired for language. Maybe, traditional approaches to language learning have really burned you out, and you’re looking for something a tad more interactive. Well, let me tell you that you’re, without a doubt, taking the right first steps. We made it a priority to make this book as useful and as simple as possible; a book you can use anytime, anywhere. Each dialogue is short and straightforward enough so that you can quickly go through them in the morning while waiting in line for coffee, during your commute, or while on your lunch break. This book has been designed so that you can study each lesson at your convenience, regardless of where you are or how much time you have available. One great feature about this book is that you don’t have to go through the entire book at once. You can pick and choose any lesson and phrase depending on your particular interest or need. For example, if you are vacationing in Spain and are planning on going out with some Spanish-speaking friends, you can go straight to the lesson on ordering a drink at bar or a meal at a restaurant. In doing so, you will get the language you need right when you need it. When you find a lesson or a phrase you are interested in practicing, you can use this book to roleplay the conversations. Since most conversations have two characters, you can practice them in pairs. As for the dialogues that have three of four characters, you can get more friends involved or just take turns listening to and repeating each character. Roleplaying is a fun and effective way of getting the most out of these dialogues. Now, if you happen to be studying on your own, don’t be shy to listen to each role or phrase on your own. In fact, listening and repeating is one of the best ways with which you can begin to get the hang of speaking Spanish. Practicing on your own in this way is great because it helps solidify the language in your mind and help it stick long-term. This audiobook covers the following topics: Common phrases Everyday phrases Verbs  Prepositions Adverbs Pronouns Articles  Adjectives Easy Spanish phrases Common words Common word used in context Pronunciation and basic conversation in Spanish Basic grammar: building sentences Numbers - numeros and time and date - Dia y Fecha How to read and write in Spanish Principal and basic rules Tips for learning a new language (consejos para aprender un nuevo idioma) And much more...  Also, as you get the hang of Spanish and become more advanced, you can tailor and tweak these conversations to suit your own personal style and taste. We have taken great care to provide you with expressions you can use right out of the box.
