Syllabus

The Magic Circle

Just like in English, Spanish sentences are made up of different parts-nouns, verbs, and phrases. In this course, you will learn how to glue those different parts together using a series of recipes. This first lesson will teach you the Magic Circle Recipe-a recipe so powerful that, by learning 200 vocabulary words, you will be able to say close to 150,000 sentences in Spanish. Learn a little, do a lot!

The 'Hay' Recipe

This lesson further explores the Magic Circle Recipe and a new one too: The Hay Recipe. Hay means "there is"/"there are". Think of how many sentences you can say that start this way. You will also learn some fun Spanish phrases, and by the time you're through, you will be creating more and more sentences.

The Magic Circle and Hay Recipes

Now it's time to combine the Magic Circle and Hay Recipes, but this lesson's bigger goal is to learn to move quickly from one recipe to another. Fluency in Spanish is all about switching from one recipe to another. This lesson will help you get up to speed.

The ¿Dónde está? Recipe

In this lesson, you will move on to the third recipe, the ¿Dónde Está? Recipe. You will also learn more parts to the Magic Circle Recipe and lots more vocabulary. And you will take your first giant step toward Spanish fluency by learning everything you need to know to converse in a Spanish-speaking restaurant.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

In this lesson, you will practice the three recipes previously introduced. You will also learn adjectives, numbers, and how to tell time in Spanish. And put on your track shoes because it's time for a few speed drills to teach you how to respond quickly with your newly learned Spanish!

The Four Seasons

Since it's a great start to any conversation, this lesson will teach you how to talk about the weather in Spanish. You will also learn about the seasons, the months of the year and the days of the week.

On the Road

In this lesson, you will travel to a Spanish-speaking country. You will need to learn some travel-related vocabulary and fun phrases for your journey, so this lesson covers all that you need to know.

You 'Tiene' and I'll 'Tengo'

In this lesson, you will learn the fourth recipe, Tengo/Tiene, and a few related fun phrases. You will also learn to produce wh-questions-who, what, when, where and why? The main goal of this lesson will be for you to become quicker at using your four recipes and fun phrases.

To Your Health!

Is there a doctor en la casa? This lesson will teach you how to discuss physical and mental health issues in Spanish. You will also learn how to identify different types of clothing and build your vocabulary.

The 'Quiero/Quiere' Recipe

The fifth recipe is Quiero/Quiere, which means "I want"/"you want". That means you will learn how to share your wants and needs in everyday Spanish-speaking situations. In this lesson, you will add a few reflexive verbs to your vocabulary.

¿Qué Hace Usted?

By learning recipe six, Me gusta/Le gusta, you will be able to share your likes and dislikes in Spanish-speaking situations. In this lesson, you will practice recipes one through five, and learn a score of occupation-related vocabulary.

¡Qué Extraño!

¡Qué Extraño! In this final lesson focuses on speaking on the phone in Spanish. You will practice how to produce complex negative sentences, so you can get mad in Spanish.
