In this video, we’re going to Order Food in Spanish! Another video you should watch: The Bare Minimum Method: Learn […]

The Flashcard Strategy

Ahhh, The Flashcard Strategy… this one is near and dear to my heart. Anybody that knows my story knows I have a deep affection for making flashcards to memorize words.

Ser Vs. Estar

“To be or not to be? That is the question.” I know very few lines from Shakespeare. But it’s no surprise to me that one of the few I do know, contains the verb “to be” twice. You see, I consider “to be” to be the mother of all verbs. I’d bet a lot of […]

Llevar & Traer [Spanish Tidbit]

At first glance, “llevar” and “traer” seem exactly like “ir” and “venir”. They ARE like them. But not EXACTLY. When schools, books and courses present them in a simple manner, they’re kinda missing the part that actually confuses us lol. If YOU’VE ever been confused by the words “take” or “bring” — watch this video! […]

Ir & Venir [Spanish Tidbit]

It’s so close to the same! But the one difference is what makes “ir” and “venir” confusing. Spanish uses “venir” in only one context–and they’re very LOYAL to that context. English on the other hand, plays things a little looser. Watch this video to never be confused by “ir” and “venir” again. Download the Battle […]
