Spanish Accelerator is the perfect course for you as it’s designed to help learners to start from scratch. In the introductory unit, we start with greetings and the alphabet. Then we learn how to ask for clarification and we’ll share some words that you already know as an English speaker. The video lessons of the first 3 units are taught in English, so you can easily follow along in the beginning. Even after that, all videos have subtitles available, and the audios of the course have transcripts in both Spanish and English.
If you’ve studied a bit of Spanish already, but have not made much progress, you’ll still benefit from the course. The first couple of units can be used as a review, and starting from unit 4, content is taught in Spanish and we’re sure there’ll be new things for you to learn. However, if you can already interact comfortably in Spanish and understand most of what you hear, this course is not for you. We recommend that you check our Course curriculum and see if you’re already familiar with most of the skills and contents we teach.
Spanish Accelerator lays down your foundation of the language. Specifically. you’ll have:
  1. A solid grasp of the basic structures and grammar of Spanish. The language will start to make sense.
  2. A good command of the 1000 most common words. As well as their common combinations and how to use them in context.
  3. A good understanding of the most important pronunciation aspects of Spanish.
  4. Inisghts into relevant cultural knowledge about Spain.
  5. Your own learning style and approach, along with a set of tools and strategies so you can take your Spanish to the next level.
For a detailed list of the contents covered, check our Course curriculum, where you will also see the projects of each units for more specific language outcomes.
No, fluency (we would first need to discuss what that means precisely) takes years to achieve. This course is the best first step, it will provide you with a solid foundation of the structure of the language, the most relevant vocabulary, pronunciation, cultural knowledge and learning strategies. However, this is a course for beginners and at the end of it you'll be able to hold basic converations, using simple structures and relying on the cooperation of the other speaker. Spaking fluently about complex topics and understanding native speakers at a natural pace will require that you continue learning and improving over time. However, having a solid foundation provides you with a much clear path forward.
The video lessons of the course are prerecorded, which means you can learn at your own pace, at the time that best suits you. There’s no particular time for you to show up for class. However, we host weekly live Q&A calls with our students to go over any questions you may have, dive deeper into certain topics or just chat, buy they are not lessons. This calls will be hosted in the evening at UK time, but the exact time and day will be decided through a poll with each cohort. Even if you can’t make it to the calls, you’ll have access to the recordings.
Up to unit 3, the video lessons are in English, and the instructions of the exercises are also in English. From units 4 to 6, the video lessons are in Spanish, but spoken slowly and clearly. All videos will have English subtitles. Units 7 to 9 are taught also in Spanish but with Spanish subtitles.
The video lessons, the audios and the contents are created by native speakers from Spain, so you’ll be exposed to European or Castilian Spanish. However, even with minor differences in certain expressions and pronunciation, the language is the same in Spain and Latin America, we all speak Spanish. So if you’re interested the Spanish spoken in México, Colombia, Cuba or any other Spanish-speaking country, don’t worry, what you learn in this will be useful anywhere.
