I live in Mexico and the Spanish has helped me talk with plumbers, electricians, (something in the apartment I rent always needs fixing), and sales people.

I volunteer at a private school and help the students with their English. My Spanish helps me to understand their questions about English.

It’s great fun

“My speaking skills have increased 50 fold.”

Marcus,

I Just returned from spending 10 days in Mexico and my speaking skills have increased 50 fold.

While having a conversation (in Mexico) with a waitress that we have known for several years, she asked me to please speak to her in Spanish so that she could better understand our conversation.

What a complement!

Thanks to your course.

“My Spanish fluidity has really improved and reached an all time high”

My Spanish has improved greatly. I have gone from being a large dictionary of vocabulary words to actually being able to put that knowledge into action…!

My Spanish fluidity has really improved and reached an all time high, and is improving everyday. (Acabo de regresar de Panama y Costa Rica durante Las Pascuas…Tambien,espero ir a España en el verano que viene).

Muchas Gracias a usted, su esposa, Jose Luis, y todas las otras personas…

Estoy muy agradecido a usted y gracias a Dios por la oportunidad para aprender un nuevo idioma.

“For the last forty years, on and off, I have been trying to learn this language. Fortunately, I have discovered your Synergy courses and things are starting to gel.”

Marcus,

Thanks for your Spanish courses – they are unique. They work! For the last forty years, on and off, I have been trying to learn this language. I have piles of books, tapes and disks to prove it. Yet, all I ever managed was some passive understanding of Spanish, I could not speak. Well, as you know well, there is not much opportunity to speak Spanish in Australian outback. Fortunately, I have discovered your Synergy courses and Apple iPod and things are starting to gel.

Last year we had a great holiday in Andalusia and finally I was able to speak “tourist” Spanish quite comfortably.

Once again thanks for your courses. There are the best in any language and I speak from experience (Czech, Russian, German, Spanish and finally English).

Good luck,

“The teaching of colloquial expressions has greatly expanded my comprehension because these are difficult to locate in dictionaries or lists of idioms.”

This course is wonderful!

Hearing the language spoken in conversational rhythm has helped my ability to distinguish words and common phrases the way they are blended together by native speakers of Spanish.

“I love the feeling of mastering Spanish!”

I love the way its set up. I have always thought (and been told by others) that learning a new language was easy for me. Then I enrolled in a Spanish class, where my confidence suffered a blow! Residing verbs and learning grammar was really not my thing. In fact, I have never learned a language by learning the grammar first, I’ve always imitated native speakers which has been enough for me.

By following this course, my vocabulary builds up slowly but surely, and I love the feeling of mastering Spanish!

Thanks for creating all your courses, they’re really appreciated.

“Bola de Nieve in particular for me is like one of those books that once you start to can’t put down”

Thanks for creating this system of learning. I love it.

What started out as an inquisitive “toe-dipping” into the Spanish language has now developed into what I know will be a lifelong learning quest!…

Not only with the language but with the culture and country of Spain; and is doesn’t stop with Spain there’s the a whole other continent across “the pond” to discover. Bola de Nieve in particular for me is like one of those books that once you start to can’t put down; admittedly I am running a little behind but that’s how things are with 3 young daughters a full time job AND a wife to keep happy!!

Thanks again for all your time and effort and PLEASE keep it going.

My wife and I have just moved to Costa Rica and I am finally getting to practice my Spanish on a daily basis. I feel THE COURSE has helped me greatly.

The people in Costa Rica are very helpful and appreciate my efforts to speak to them in their own language. I have had numerous comments that I am speaking very well and my pronunciation is good! I am sure that is partly because the people here are very kind but also thanks to the excellent audio and practice provided by the course.

“I lost my confidence. Now, with Bola de Nieve, I am regaining the confidence I need to speak with my neighbours (I live in Spain).”

I love the course and have recommended it to my friends. I was getting nowhere fast at the local language school – that was all about conjugating verbs etc. There was a lot I didn’t understand but no-one answered my questions satisfactorily (not even about the personal ‘a’, which you explained in an instant). I lost my confidence. Now, with Bola de Nieve, I am enjoying learning and am regaining the confidence I need to speak with my neighbours (I live in Spain).

I want to continue learning until I am mistaken for a Spaniard!

I’ve been studying Spanish for about 2 years now (I was 59 when I started), and very soon discovered your Shortcut to Spanish and Synergy courses, so of course I jumped at the chance to enroll on your Bola de Nieve! I like your step by step approach building on previous lessons and it’s very convenient on my MP3 player as I can dip into it at all sorts of odd times, but most of all I like the way you present the lessons sharing bits of your life with us.

“I wish I could go back to Peru again since my Spanish is so much better now.”

The course has been great to keep talking and thinking in Spanish.

I wish I could go back to Peru again since my Spanish is so much better now – thanks to your courses. Now I could really have a true conversation with the family members, especially the little girl in the blue sweater who so much wanted to talk to me and get me dancing at the fiesta.

As I’ve told you in the past, getting the words from my brain to my mouth was a major barrier, not so much for fear of saying it wrong but the inability to string it all together. The combination of oral practice and reading the words plus your clear explanations has completely removed that obstacle and I really enjoy being able to chat with people on a wide variety of subjects.

“Your system works!”

Marcus,

I just returned from Honduras where I provide technical support to a medical mission team. After using your courses for the past few months I was hoping that my Spanish would be better than last year and after a few hours of getting used to the Honduran way of speaking I was delighted to find that I could communicate with our Spanish only drivers and others, at the stores, restaurants, and churches where we worked. (Your system works!)

I am now the guy who rides up front in the “micro bus” since “I speak Spanish” better than other team members. I have found your approach to be very effective. (Bola de Neive) I will continue to study in anticipation of another trip later this year.

Thanks!

“It feels so good to understand and be understood.”

When I came to Honduras to teach at a bilingual school, I didn’t speak any Spanish. I was very uncomfortable when I would go to town to go shopping. The language barrier really prevented me from having an impact in the lives of the people around me. But, after about a year of studying under you, I can communicate quite comfortably in this Spanish culture.

A turning point for me was conducting my 2nd quarter report card meetings with the parents of my 23 2nd grade students all in Spanish. It feels so good to understand and be understood.

“Thank you for giving me the confidence to just go for it!”

I have been going to Tenerife on holiday for many years but have never really had much knowledge or confidence to try speaking Spanish.

After completing Synergy Spanish and now working through Bola de Nieve I was eager to put my Spanish to the test!

On holiday in Tenerife earlier this month, I was delighted that I could order food and drinks in restaurants and converse with the locals, asking them questions about their lives and answering questions about my life. I even asked a local man for directions one day in the street – and was able to understand the reply!

I was complimented many times by Spanish-speaking people on my ability to speak Spanish! The Spanish people were delighted that I was making an effort to talk to them in their language and were eager to offer me advice when I went wrong.

In return, they were grateful to learn some Scottish colloquialisms which they could use to impress in their English conversations!

Thank you for giving me the confidence to just go for it! Muchas gracias

That’s when I discovered Synergy Spanish. It was a refreshing new window on learning. I worked my way through, I think, all the Synergy products and onto Bola de Nieve. I thank you for how you taught me to speak.

By the way, I’m 78. I hadn’t heard a word of Spanish until I turned 75. I could have, should have written this in Spanish. But it is, after all, our mutual idioma materna and I wanted to be sure that you understood just how happy I have been with all you have done for me.

Your system is amazing! It is so wonderful to be able to ENJOY Spanish, and not have to keep trying to wade through every fine point of the grammar, and pages and pages of verbs and tenses that are just totally overwhelming.

Today I had to call my phone company. The woman who responded began speaking to me in Spanish. I was able to keep up for awhile, and then told her I was still learning. She was amazed that I had no accent and that I had learned off of the net.

Marcus, I can’t tell you the thrill it gave me. And her assessment that I was correct and without noticeable accent is a tribute to your method.

    I’ve spent a number of years trying to learn the spanish language. After signing up for Bola de Nieve I now realise I have wasted many years on pointless grammar study, that only made me feel like I was banging my head against a wall. This course has taught me free flowing spanish in an enjoyable and fun way. There are many “rip off” companies selling courses that promise you the earth but this IS NOT one of them. This course works and is value for money. My only regret is taking too long thinking about signing up for it.

    Marcus – thank you so much. The best advice you have given me is to speak, don’t worry about tenses, etc. They will understand you. I am 88 yrs old, living in Sinaloa, Mexico, and enjoying my life. I just finished tiling about 1400 sq ft of my home and completely tiled two bath rooms and showers. The great part of it all, I can talk with the people I meet and know, in Spanish. You also said not to think in English, think in Spanish. It certainly makes it much easier to communicate. Looking forward to more years here in Mexico.
    Just as an aside, I was known here for a long time as Amys gringo. Every body knows who I am what house I live in, my wife is a Mexican citizen and was born here in El Roble and I now have a 4 yr. visa so I am well accepted. Thanks again Marcus, I still need help. Adios.

    Originally, I am from the Philippines and study Spanish in college. I learn it not to good enough because while learning, I muzzle with all the rules of grammar and keep me confused.
    In just 3 days of your shortcut to Spanish I grasp and learn some few words and phrases and can start to communicate a little. Marcus, your technique is plain simple and effective with more retention absorbed as you go on with the lesson. Muchisimas gracias
