SPANISH or CASTILIAN

Castellano

Is a Romance language originating in the northern Spain, whence it gradually spread inside the Kingdom of Castile.


 It was later taken to Africa, the Americas and Asia Pacific when the Spanish Empire was established between the 15th and 19th centuries.


Spanish is the official language of Spain, most Latin American countries and Equatorial Guinea; 21 nations speak Spanish as their primary language.


It is estimated that the combined total of native and non-native Spanish speakers is approximately 500 million.

IMMERSE YOURSELF AND LEARN FAST


We recommend our students to watch movies in Spanish, and to use Spanish subtitles at the beginning (for Initial & Beginner levels) as it will be easier and student will learn faster.


The more you listen, the more you will speak! as you will create patterns in your subconscious and it will come to you easily and naturally.


Immerse yourself by listening to music, movies, audiobooks, radio, podcast… Then when listening for the 2nd  time try to say it out loud as it will help you with your pronunciation and speed. Repetition is key.


Go to YouTube and type “Película completa”, also audiolibros.


Learn and give yourself a break every time, the brain needs it and you want to enjoy it also. All the best!
