Ser Socio and la Zona V.I.P.


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.

What You Get:

These Spanish Lessons Online are designed with you in mind and are suitable to most levels from Improver through to Advanced. Each lesson comes with:

  • 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

Los Colores and the Balcony of terror! Children’s Spanish learning book LightSpeed Spanish

The first in a series of Spanish for children books!

We are excited to announce the release of our first book of Spanish for children. The Colours and the Balcony of Terror is a fun, interactive book designed for parents and children to enjoy together.  Available from Amazon, (very soon) it provides your child with an easy to learn system of a story that seamlessly grows vocabulary whilst your child (and you) have fun reading a great story together.

Learning really doesn’t get better than this!

What this book promises:

This children’s Spanish learning book has been designed for children who are new to reading and also for adults who like to read to their children. The book comes with an audio which will help you with pronunciation when reading the Spanish words.

It’s also a great idea to have the MP3 playing in the background when your child is within earshot. You will be amazed at how much they take in even when they are pretending to do something else.


The first story in this book is written in English and works to gradually blend your new Spanish vocabulary in a structured and fun way. This should ideally be read by the adult to the child. The second story is written in parallel text, in very simplified Spanish, using a lot of the vocabulary that we have built into the book. Once again, this is for the adult to read with the child. However, children can also read the Spanish story because Spanish is a phonetic language which means that you say it as you see it.

This range of books produced by LightSpeed Spanish has the purpose of introducing your child to some basic Spanish language along with various practical concepts by way of fun stories.
