I’m so glad I let this Sideways Spanish cat out of the bag. It’s helping a lot of people breakthrough their blockages with Spanish. See their comments below the audio on this page.

    Let me add my gracias to all the others here. I’ve only done the first lesson so far, but it has certainly opened my eyes about verbs in Spanish. I am trying to learn the language so that I can communicate when I go to Central America next summer. Thanks again. I promise to work hard and learn well.

    I love the system. It makes me a better speaker and I’ve enjoyed adding words to my vocabulary without the need to memorize lists. Cognates are great!

    I took my first lesson yesterday and I have to say I already can understand and speak more Spanish! The lesson was fun and easy. Not like my other spanish class attempts. I look forward to becoming conversationally fluent in a few months.

    Thanks Marcus for sharing your teaching.

    Hola Marcos
    I love sideways Spanish it motivates me and help me to put sentences together thanks for doing such a great job. I especially love to read about your encounter at the embassy when you were told to take a seat, I laughed so much and that tells me how much I need to know the language am trying thanks for your continued help and support,

    hola Marcus

    I love Sideways Spanish. I´ve been struggling with memorizing verb lists for months, if not years and suddenly it is so much easier using this method.
    I´m also enjoying Synergy Spanish. I already know much of the vocabulary, buy putting the sentences together in the exercises has been both challenging and enjoyable, thankyou

    It is a very good idea to share also the transcripts of audio lessons. They’ll help learning in many ways. It is easier to listen and understand if you can follow ir on the paper and besides you’ll see how to write the words correc.
    Many thanks!
