    Hello Marcus, I have done Spanish in school many years ago. I find your method of teaching easier to learn than all the others I have done and I am motivated to stick to your lessons. I am sort of forced to learn the language, because when I turn on my cable T.V. in the English speaking Caribbean I am getting quite a bit of the Spanish Americas feed….thanks again.

    I really can’t fault your way of teaching at all, congratulations on helping a third age student, !! I have been living in España for many years, and have been through the usual route of schools etc, but your way is definitely the easiest and most enjoyable route.
    I’m so glad that my son directed me ” your way”. My course is almost finished , one month more, but I shall be signing up for the following, I enjoy it very much. And, there us so much more you offer , than the course, i.e. Music information, and much more.

    Thanks for all the free videos you are giving us. I have been listening a lot and finally bought my first course, and are exiting to start to learn more. I think your courses are brilliant. My spanish has been a lot better – mucho mejor – y puedo hablar más que nunca – y los videos son geniales.I am also 60 years old and have been learning spanish by myself for a long time – and I know a lot, but I think this will help me speak better and hopefully with more fluency. Thanks.

    I would like to express my excitement about my sincere progress in learning Spanish. I am now able to even write a short letter to my friends who speaks Spanish without any fear.
    I am moving progressively well and it’s really amazing for sure because, I realised, learning new language puts in a person more wisdom and expands rooms to get friends and other opportunities which, I have started to experience it.
    Thanks a lot. I am very happy for the progress.

    I appreciate so much what you are doing. The lessons are great. My husband and I live near the border in southern Arizona, and we are also musicians. Anyway, we don’t have much time to listen or learn just trying to make a living, but every time I listen, I get more comfortable and love it. Will find time soon to study what we actually bought from you. Thanks again.

    Hi Marcus,

    Thank you for the Life, Love and Music videos. They are very helpful and enjoyable. I am also following your Spanish Synergy course which I think is fantastic. I completed the Beginners Course and was able to communicate with my daughter’s Colombian mother-in-law who had absolutely no english. Next year I hope we will be “chatting”.

    Great break from my bola de nieve course. Keep up the good work!! I also can not recommend the BOLA course enough..It clears up sooo much confusion that I have had with espanol in the past. My Mexican friends don’t look at me with a “funny” look anymore when we talk..

    This lesson is an example of how much fun it is to learn,
    and REALLY LEARN, to speak Spanish.

    Although I never got to see the first three versions of this,
    (Spanish Life, Love and Music)I am looking forward to more.

    Thanks for your unique methods, length of each lesson,
    because time is important to me and I get just enough to
    learn and remember it.

    Tengo Synergy Spanish, y conversación accelerator y informal Spanish. Puedo defenderme en español. En dos meses nosotros vamos a viajar a Peru y vivir por 18 meses. Mi español no es perfecto, pero es suficiente para mi y mi esposa.

    Gracias Marcus. Sus lecciones están excelentes. Para hablar a aprender español es muy bien. Me encantan sus lecciones.

    Tengo sesenta y cinco anos. Es mi sueno a dominar español en Peru en 18 meses. Posiblemente español con inmersión.

    I feel confident that I can express myself this time in America Latina. The problem will be that I don’t have enough vocabulary to understand replies unless people speak slowly and simply to me. I figure it will work out. 6 years ago we were in Ecuador for 18 months as volunteers for our Church and knew no Spanish. The methods of learning that I tried convinced me that I was too old and linguistically challenged to be able to learn, so I muddled along and found people who knew a bit of English. I loved Ecuador and the people but was sorry that I couldn’t communicate. This time I feel confident that things will be much better. This method that Marcus has developed is so simple and effective. I now enjoy studying Spanish where as before I hated it with stupid lessons that focused on grammar and made the whole learning process discouraging. Probably snowball is the way to go, but I don’t have time before I leave. Maybe when I get back if I think I have enough zip left for more time in America Latina. Right now I am thrilled with what I have been able to accomplish and look forward to putting it to work. Muchas Gracias Marcus.

    Many thanks for all the lessons. I sincerely appreciate them. I often spend many hours enjoying and learning Spanish. I just wish I had the opportunity to speak to a native speaker face to face. Sometimes I hear visitors speaking Spanish but I do not feel comfortable just walking up to them to begin a conversation. However, I do speak it to my family and my students even though they are not learning at the rate I am. Once again thanks!

    I absolutely love and appreciate all your video lessons!!!! I appreciate your hard work so much and I am learning a lot. Please keep them coming!!!!!!!! I do have a question… when you say, for example, me encantaria aprender a tocar la guitarra. Why is there an a in front of tocar? It would appear that it is saying I would love to learn to to play the guitar. I am just curious and am really trying to grasp the sentence structures in Spanish. I truly hope to be fluent someday.

    Speaking of love, it’s a good thing I learned the difference between soy and estoy during Bola de Nieve.

    I met Maria salsa dancing. Sometimes she messages or speaks to me in Spanish, sometimes in English. In any case, when listening to a salsa song, she said “yo soy romantica”. To let her know I understood I replied “todas chicas son romanticas”. Had she said “estoy romantica” to me, that’s an entirely different matter! Not sure this difference can be so simply expressed in English.

    She told me in Vera Cruz, Mexico where she is fromen and women in the same age group familiar with each other refer to each other as Chico and Chica.
