LightSpeed Spanish have just launched their latest resource and one that may just change how you learn Spanish forever!

Talking you through each area of the Spanish language, Gordon and Cynthia Smith-Durán will be guiding you and your Spanish by way of their Spanish Lessons Online.

As a member, each week you will receive a full lesson on a wide range of subjects that you too can influence. The lesson includes a 10 minute transcribed and translated Spanish conversation in which we demonstrate how to use the particular structure that we are covering that day. Then, we talk for a further 10 minutes in English during which time we pull the conversation to pieces to further help you understand how to use each structure well in conversation.

  • A video of the lesson exclusive to members only
  • A downloadable mp3 audio of the lesson
  • A downloadable transcript and translation of the entire Spanish conversation
  • Homework set at two levels to drive home the learning and the concepts
  • Comments that come directly to us so that you can ask us to cover specific topics
  • The possibility of chatting with native Spanish speakers in a language exchange

Our New Book: Ser and Estar made simple LightSpeed Spanish

Ser and Estar made simple: now available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk and in other Amazon outlets! Coming to Kindle soon too!

Here, at LightSpeed Spanish, we are thrilled to announce the release of our latest publication! Ser and Estar made simple, is a workbook that has been designed to take all of the mystery out of these two slippery Spanish verbs, Ser and Estar.

Get it on Amazon!

Starting with the Present Tense, we offer you some easy to understand concepts that then go on to serve you fantastically well as we walk you through the other Spanish tenses.

A strong focus of the book is to help you with the Was and Were sentences that so often catch us out.

We believe that there really is no need to be confused about using Ser and Estar in the past. In fact, we show you just how straight forward it can be when you have some simple ideas to follow.

Learning Spanish is an art and not a science. What’s more, it should be fun! Too often we find ourselves stressing over our own performance. You don’t need to! Aside from the great concepts we provide in this book, we also help you understand why you should be less demanding on yourself and more understanding of the errors you make.

We also offer you the most important fundamentals of how to speak Spanish with confidence, as well as how to communicate fantastically well when you are speaking Spanish with others.

If you consider yourself to be a serious student of the Spanish language, then this book is a must get!

Un saludo,

Gordon y Cynthia:)
