Have a Conversation in Spanish on the Street within 10 Weeks!
Learn how my ”Chess Game Approach” will help you to pick up Spanish FAST!
Why is Speaking Spanish so Hard?
Maybe you tried to learn Spanish in the past. You learned the basic words, maybe some grammar, and it felt like you were making progress.
But how often have you used your Spanish?
I mean how often have you spoken Spanish with a stranger in the real world?
Maybe you tried, but you got stuck translating Spanish in your head and completely froze up.
They say that Spanish is one of the easiest languages for English speakers to learn, but if it’s so easy, then why is it that most learners never become fluent?
The issue is that most language learners focus on stuff that doesn’t really matter at the beginning. They’ll go way too deep into pronunciation or really focus on lists of numbers, colors, the alphabet, and that kind of stuff.
It’s true! I never start learning languages from the alphabet. You don’t need to either – I give you permission!
But this is the way most language courses work. And obviously, it’s important to know all those things at some point.
But it’s like building a fancy house without a foundation. Eventually, it’s going to collapse and you need to start all over again.
When that happens, students get demotivated and give up!
That’s why I learn languages like I play chess.
Yes, no joke!
You can use this approach too, and the best thing is it works 100% from home.
In fact, I believe that it’s possible to learn to have a basic conversation in any language within just 24 hours.
Yes, 24 hours!
You probably think I’m kidding…
But I can guarantee it’s possible because I do this all the time on my YouTube channel
And trust me, I was definitely not the smartest kid in the class.
So what’s the secret?
The Magic of my “Chess Game” Approach
Chess players usually start the game with standard openings, like moving the pawn from E2 to E4. Then you know that you need to follow up with the Sicilian Defense. Then there are all kinds of standard responses, and that’s because those are generally recognized as the best and most common moves.
And the more you play the game, the better you have those opening moves memorized. As the game gets more complex, your skills get tested more and more by all these variants.
Do you see the similarities between playing chess and learning languages?
That’s why I always focus on the ‘’opening moves’’ at the beginning.
Once you can ‘’open’’ a conversation and start speaking, you have a foundation that you can start building on.
Start with practical phrases like ‘’do you speak Spanish?’’ or ‘’I’m learning Spanish’’. The fancy stuff will follow later.
With this approach, you can speak a new language from the very beginning. This will give you the momentum you need to become fluent.
What You’ll Learn In Street Smart Spanish?
Focus on Real-Life Situations
When you start speaking Spanish with somebody, they will always ask you the same questions:
- How come you speak Spanish?
- Where are you from?
- Do you live here?
We’ll focus on the words, phrases and sentence structures that you need for your first conversations in Spanish in practical real-life situations.
Think about situations like:
- Ordering in a restaurant
- Going to the airport
- Interacting in a bar
- Haggling at the market
- Communicating at a bakery
Alejandra and her friends and I act out all these scenarios in video conversations to get you started speaking Spanish fast. We learn grammar naturally as it comes up in the dialogues, not by memorizing a list of points.
Make Sentences from Day One
We don’t just teach you a bunch of phrases that you need to learn by heart. You will learn patterns of speech so that you can make your own sentences in Spanish and say whatever you want.
You don’t need any prior experience!
Alejandra Will Be Your Personal Virtual Guide!
Like the idea of learning Spanish with a teacher?
We’ve added “walkthrough” videos. Alejandra will walk you step by step through all the dialogues of each lesson and give an in-depth explanation of all vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar features.
You’ll almost feel like you’re in a virtual classroom with her as your private teacher, where every single line of dialogue is clearly and simply broken down and explained. This lets me guarantee you the learning experience I want you to have!
Not only that, but you’ll be able to comment on all lesson content, and because of our passion for learning languages, not only do we read every single comment but we also usually reply!

I understand that learning a language can be really boring and difficult because that’s how I experienced it at school.
