  1. Gracias por los videos útiles y las entradas de blog

  2. Tuve la suerte de encontrar 4 libros por la empresa McGraw Hill en un mercado de cosas de secundo mano y me gustan todos que son: Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Past-Tense Verbs, The Spanish Subjunctive up Close, Spanish Pronouns up Close, and Spanish Pronouns and Prepositions. He usado libros de la empresa Assimil por otras idiomas pero no español pero pienso que sus productos son muy buenos in general. Living Language Spanish es otro producto que me gusta para aprender español y otras lenguas. Normalmente hay 3 niveles de este método con CDs incluidos: Essential, Intermediate and advanced. Spanish the Easy Way by Barron's es un libro que no esta mal.

    Me gusta el libro por la empresa Barron's que se llama 1001 Pitfalls in Spanish que tiene tantos ejemplos de problemas notables en español que uno se pregunta si es posible recordarse de muchos de ellos. Finalmente, me gusta el librito por Barrons que se llama Spanish grammar. Este libro es muy pequeño y perfecto para llevarlo en una bolsa pequeña para mirarlo cuando uno esta esperando en una linea por ejemplo o para revisar cosas rápidamente.

    In general I don't think any 1 book or method is perfect. One can find the book(s) that seem to work for you- maybe not others, and go from there. Languages are my passion so I tend to have many resources for learning them and of course I have my favorites. I keep telling myself 'basta', what I need more than anything is always more conversations in Spanish.

    Good luck.

  3. Would like to suggest 3 grammar books we used at the University of Illinois for people studying to teach people English. Most of the students we were teaching English were international students studying to pass the TOEFL test of English so they could enter American Universities. The texts are very comprehensive and some have online resources and or CD-ROMS one can use as well as workbooks that can accompany each text.
    The texts are Understanding and Using English Grammar (for advanced students), Fundamentals of English Grammar (lower-intermediate & intermediate students), and Basic English Grammar (for beginners). All 3 texts are by Betty S. Azar and Stacey A Hagen. I used older editions of these but there are much newer editions now. The books are more expensive than some but you get what you pay for. These are books by very professional women with excellent charts, explanations, examples, practice exercises, etc. All 3 texts are 100% in English. Other books may have colored pictures, and greater graphics but I believe if it's grammar you want to master then these books can help. Amazon has them for sure. Good luck.

Best Sites To Learn Caribbean Spanish Slang (Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, & Cuba)

              At Bilingüe Blogs, we pride ourselves on teaching authentic Spanish, so that students can understand and communicate with natives in a natural way. Many slang words, and colloquial phrases are not taught in schools or other courses. Many dictionaries do not seem to contain them either. Typically, in order to learn these things, you have to befriend someone from the country that uses the dialect that you want to learn. Another option could be to travel or move to that country. Sometimes, neither of these options are possible, but there is no need to worry. You can learn practically anything online nowadays. With that being said, I would like to share with you some of the best sites for learning colloquial phrases and slang in Spanish. In this article we will only be investigating the Caribbean since they are close in proximity, and all have a very similar spoken dialect.  **DISCLAIMER** This article is intended for  intermediate  and advanced students since MO

Los 5 errores más comunes que cometen los estudiantes principiantes al aprender inglés

      *Click here for the English version.* Aprender otro idioma de tu propia voluntad requiere mucho coraje. Empecé a aprender mi segundo idioma hace 15 años a los 12 años de edad. No sabía ni cómo ni dónde empezar, pero tenía un deseo ardiente de aprender. Luego de 2 años y pico, podía hablarlo con fluidez, pero sé que pude haberlo aprendido más rápido si hubiera tenido más dirección. La meta de este artículo es darte la dirección que deseaba tener yo, para que puedas crear hábitos buenos que te darán resultados desde el principio. Abajo encontrarás los 5 errores más comunes que cometen los principiantes al aprender inglés. 1. Centrarse demasiado en el tiempo Problema:  Siempre me sorprende que la pregunta más popular que me hacen es, "Rickie, ¿Cuánto tiempo te tomó lograr hablar tu segundo idioma con fluidez?" Tengo mucho conocimiento sobre mi segundo idioma, pero deciden centrarse en el tiempo que me tomó, en vez de ese conocimiento. Puede que la culpa se d

5 Most Common Mistakes That Beginners Make When Learning Spanish

*Haz click aquí para leer en español* Taking on a new language on your own volition takes courage. I started learning Spanish 15 years ago when I was 12 years old. I didn't know where to start or how to go about doing things. I just had a burning desire to learn. I reached fluency after a couple years, but I know that I could have learned faster if I had more guidance. My goal with this article is to give you that guidance that I wish I had and to steer you in the right direction, so that you can create good habits that get results from the beginning. Below are the 5 most common mistakes that beginners make when learning Spanish. 1. Focusing too much on time Problem: It always surprises me that the most frequently asked question that I receive from Spanish learners is, "Rickie, how long did it take you to become fluent in Spanish?" I have a lot of knowledge of the Spanish language, but people choose to focus on time rather than that knowledge. Maybe it is d
