Perfecting the Past in Spanish

Are you a student looking to come to grips with the past tense in Spanish? If so, we’re sure that you will be very glad you did. Why? Simply because once you have worked through the straightforward systems, the easy explanations and the practical exercises found here you will be a veritable expert on the past in Spanish.


Demystifying the Spanish Subjunctive

A few years ago, LightSpeed Spanish created a range of videos on the Spanish subjunctive that was an instant hit because it made this challenging topic easier and much more approachable. Now, Cynthia and Gordon Smith-Durán have taken all of that valuable knowledge and made it into the book Demystifying the Spanish Subjunctive.


Pocket Por and Para

Do you have problems using “por” and “para” in Spanish? Are you unsure which one to choose from when faced with saying ‘for’ in Spanish? If that’s true for you then our book Pocket Por and Para is the ideal tool to help you clear up the mystery once and for all.


Perfecting the Pronouns. Now available!

We are so excited to announce our latest addition to the ‘Perfecting’ series of books. This time, we offer a novel and, dare we say it, simple way of working with those pesky Direct and Indirect Object Pronouns (AKA LO, LA, LOS, LAS, LE, LES.)
And, of course, there’s so much more than just that! Packed with practical exercises, we cover:
  • Personal Pronouns -Yo, Tú etc.
  • Prepositional Pronouns – Mí, Tí
  • Demonstrative Pronouns – Este, ese
  • Pronominal verbs – Verbs with SE
  • Direct Pronouns – Lo, La
  • Indirect pronouns – Le, Les
  • Redundant use of the pronoun – Le a
  • La La Land – Se lo
  • Victim Structure – Se le
  • Identifying the SE – How to know what it is
  • Lo as a thing – Lo bueno
  • When to use Ello
As always, the book is written in such a way that will be meaningful to the majority of students, especially those of us that feel overwhelmed sometimes bythe ‘hard to understand’ grammatical names and explanations.
Written for students, by students, we hope you find it valuable.

What this book promises:

This 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.
