ser-socio-membership-programThank you for taking an interest in our Ser Socio Membership Program. As a ‘Socio’, each week you will receive a full lesson on a wide range of subjects that you too can influence by writing us and telling us what you’d like to learn.

Each 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 go on to talk for a further 10 minutes in English during which time we analyse the Spanish conversation to further help you understand how to use each structure well in conversation.
