What’s included in each Spanish lesson?

Each lesson consists of the following components:

Los vídeos (5)

Note: You don’t need to take notes while watching the videos. You can download a complete transcription afterwards.

  • Teacher presentation (animated video):

    The virtual teacher provides information that will help you to understand the clips. This is followed by a quick quiz based on 5 items introduced in the presentation.

  • Clip from the movie, subtitled in English:

    This version will help you get a general idea of what’s going on. But if you prefer, you can skip this step.

  • Clip subtitled in Spanish:

    This version will help to improve your listening comprehension. The subtitles match exactly what the actors say… even if they make mistakes! (It’s true, Spanish speakers make mistakes too, especially when speaking rapidly). It’s a good idea to watch this version more than once.

  • Original version:

    You will understand this version if you’ve already seen the version with Spanish subtitles a couple of times.

  • Conclusion (animated video):

    The virtual teacher reviews some of the language from the clips and wraps up the lesson.

PDFs (3)

  • List of vocabulary and expressions

    Introduced in the lesson, with translations in English.

  • Transcription:

    This is a transcription of the entire lesson (presentation, original movie clip with translation, and conclusion). It’s a good strategy to read the transcription while listening to the entire lesson, or parts of the lesson, as often as you need until you can distinguish and understand every word. You can also chime in with the audio. This way you can focus on pronunciation, the stress patterns and the intonation of words and phrases in Spanish.

  • A bit of grammar:

    An explanation of a couple of the grammar points that came up in the lesson.

Learning activities (2)

A suggestion: To help you retain everything in your long-term memory, it’s a good strategy to repeat these activities a few times over the coming weeks— even if you got it all right the first time.

Tareas interactivas

Interactive tasks: These activities will help you to memorise the words and expressions from the lesson. You can also hear a native speaker pronouncing the words and phrases.

Ponte a prueba

Test yourself: These activities will help you to evaluate your comprehension and your knowledge of the words, phrases and grammar points highlighted in the lesson.
