"How Far Do You Want To Take Your Spanish?"

What I am about to offer isn't for everyone, if your goal is simply to learn enough Spanish to get by as quickly as possible for a holiday, then Synergy Spanish has everything you need.

But if...

  • You have more than a passing interest in the language
  • You live in a Spanish speaking country or want to
  • You are connected with a Spanish speaking community or family
  • You have a longer term goal and want to become as fluent as possible in Spanish, then...

If any of the above applies to you this additional option is your opportunity to reach those goals in the quickest time possible. This special offer will take you to the next level.

There are two main ingredients to achieving great Spanish. The first half of the equation is simply a commitment and desire to speak this wonderful language well.

You're still reading, so I am sure you have that desire.

What is the other ingredient?

It's simply a clear, step by step sequential path that takes you from getting by in Spanish; Synergy Spanish will do that for you... and then becoming as fluent as possible in Spanish.

I've spent the last 6 years building exactly that path.

It's a program called Bola de Nieve, which is Spanish for snowball.

Why a snowball?

Well, taking your Spanish to the next level and speaking with complete freedom can be as easy as rolling a snowball downhill. All you need is someone to steer you in the right direction.

That's where Bola de Nieve comes in.

And the perfect time to get going with Bola de Nieve is when Synergy Spanish is fresh in your mind. It's just such an easy flow from getting by with Synergy Spanish to speaking great Spanish with Bola de Nieve.

That's why; I'd like to give you this chance to get involved now and make you a special offer.

You can try out my simple path to fluency in Spanish and receive 5 immediate conversation multipliers for free

As a reward for trying my system, I'll give you a collection of conversation multipliers you can use right away to get even more out of Synergy Spanish.

And you don't even have to commit the entire course up front. You have a full 30 days to try everything out. And if you decide it's not for you, for any reason, I'll still let you keep all of the immediate bonuses just for saying maybe...

Here are the 5 immediate gifts you'll receive just for giving it a shot

I want to try the simple path to fluency now

Conversation Multiplier # 1

9 Easy Steps to Double Your Spanish Conversations

This course shows you how you can quickly double your conversational ability by adding informal Spanish to your repertoire.

Spanish has two ways of speaking. Synergy Spanish, we focus on the formal way, because that's the way that shows the most respect. It's the best option for speaking with professionals like doctors, dentists and police officers.

It's the Spanish to speak first because you always show due respect and you won't sound arrogant or accidentally disrespect or insult anyone.

As your Spanish skills grow, you'll spend more time speaking informal Spanish with your amigos.

This Conversation Multiplier is the perfect companion to your Synergy Spanish Course. In just a few hours you can go through the 9 easy steps and double your conversation ability.

Conversation Multiplier # 2

7 easy to use sentence starters to fit in like a native

You'll love these patterns. They make your Spanish sound very authentic, like you've been around the language for years.

They're everyday expressions that native speakers use all the time.

Best of all, they fit perfectly with Synergy Spanish. They simply plug right into the Spanish from your course, giving you an immediate boost in fluidity and an easy way to add authenticity and flow to your Spanish in around an hour.

Conversation Multiplier # 3

Reflexive verbs made easy.

When I first started trying to learn Spanish, it seemed every second word in the dictionary ended in arse, irse or erse. I discovered these were reflexive verbs.

A reflexive verb is about more than just saying what you do to yourself. It's a way to add emotion, expression and emphasis on commonly used verbs.

You'll find this simple lesson multiplies your Spanish and gives you new ways to express yourself.

In addition to multiplying your Spanish, you'll also tap into deeper meanings behind the Spanish you hear around you.

Conversation Multiplier # 4

Everyday Informal Spanish for chatting with family and friends

It's loaded with real world conversational Spanish, you'll say things like...

A que hora necesitas irte? (What time do you need to get going?)
Tienes que levantarte temprano mañana. (You have to get up early tomorrow.)
Vas a tener que acostumbrarte a conducir al otro lado de la calle. (You are going to have to get used to driving on the other side of the road.)
Es fácil perderte en el centro. (It's easy to get lost downtown.)

Don't worry if those phrases look a little intimidating, in less than 1 hour you too will be using this typical everyday kind of language in Spanish just like you do in English.

Conversation Multiplier # 5

Understand native speakers with collocations.

One of the trickiest parts of the Spanish language is collocations. They are the way native speakers combine words to create new meanings.

Some examples of collocations

  • Se trata de - it's about / it has to do with
  • Por lo menos - at least
  • Dar a luz - to give birth

I want to try the simple path to fluency now

As you advance through Bola de Nieve you'll learn more and more collocations. However this Masterclass gives you a jump start on the common collocations that native Spanish speakers use all the time. It's a great way to give your Spanish an instant boost and authentic flavor.

Bola de Nieve

Developing fluency and starting to think in Spanish

Now it's time to take your Spanish to the next level of fluency and start thinking in the language. This is where your Spanish goes from good to great.

This is where hesitancy disappears and you just say what you want to say.

You'll speak about yourself, about your friends and family about where you are from and what you do.

In fact, it doesn't really matter what the subject of the conversation is, you now have enough command of the language to speak on just about any topic.

And with that command of the language your friendships blossom. You're no longer just trying to keep up with people; you are participating and contributing to the conversations.

And as your friendships bloom and conversations flourish you'll speak more and more Spanish in real life situations.

Then, you'll achieve a closed circle.

That means the more you learn the better your conversations become. As you have better conversations you continue to learn more almost automatically. Once this happens your Spanish takes off.

Getting your Spanish to this level doesn't come overnight. The course will put you on the path to great Spanish but you do have to walk the path. You have to practice speaking Spanish to build this ability.

That's why, Bola de Nieve is an extensive 14 month program with over 70 hours of audio. All of it is paced to build your fluency in a natural progression that's always easy to follow. You just do the lessons and get better at Spanish. Before you know it you're expressing ideas in Spanish as easily as you would in English.

And when you finish all the lessons you'll achieve a level of Spanish fluency that not one in a thousand English speakers ever experience. You'll be that person that really does speak Spanish and is comfortable in the Spanish speaking world.

And that's when the fun really begins.

Imagine how great it will be to speak Spanish with complete confidence.

It's an exciting prospect, isn't it?

Imagine amazing your English speaking friends with your fluent Spanish and delighting your amigos by speaking to them in their own language.

Imagine the enjoyment you'll experience mixing it with the locals when you travel. Now you could even live in a Spanish speaking country if you choose.

The options are endless once you have mastered Spanish at this level.

Perhaps this Spanish project is not even about you, many of my students learn Spanish so they can help others.

Whether your reason for learning is...

Whatever your reason for wanting to speak Spanish, if you follow the step-by-step sequence in Bola de Nieve you can't help but speak great Spanish.

Frankly, I don't know of any other program that makes it so systematic to go from zero to fluent Spanish. All you have to do is complete a series of easy to follow lessons and you will be speaking great Spanish.

Each month for 14 months you receive a new module which includes these 4 components.

Component 1 - Fluency Modules Audio

Start speaking with great expressiveness, fluidity and confidence

Each month you receive a new Fluency Module complete with around 3-4 hours of interactive audio lessons. I guide you step by step to actually interact with the audio and speak real Spanish.

It's a lot of fun and it's exciting to speak more and more Spanish everyday.

Component 1 Now Comes With Video

To make sure you get to enjoy speaking this beautiful language, I've added our roadblock-busting video format.

This new video format is proving to be the missing piece for many of my students to finally speak Spanish.

Now you'll enjoy using more of the language with less effort, less time and more enjoyment.

Component 2 - Fluency Module Action Guides

It's time to demystify Spanish so the barriers to using the language disappear

Each Fluency Modules contains 4-6 Action Guides.

You get Spanish speaking hints and step by step explanations that take all the mystery out of Spanish, so you can use the language without fear of making mistakes.

The guides show you how to use different language patterns and expressions so your communication takes on an authentic flavor that native Spanish speakers recognize right away.

In fact, you'll find Spanish speakers like, trust and bond with you more because you've taken the time to use their language the way they do.

Component 3 - Advanced Concepts

Advanced Spanish without stress or confusion

All the complication that usually goes with learning advanced Spanish… well, it doesn't have to be so complicated after all.

Starting from Module 2, you'll receive Advanced Concepts audio lessons. These are designed to get you using expressive language and several past tenses. Best of all, you'll use advanced Spanish without stress or confusion, it's all very easy.

These first 3 components give you everything you need to breakthrough your learning barriers and get to speak great Spanish...

However I am going to add one more component to make sure you absolutely get to speak the Spanish you have always wanted to speak

Component 4 - Private Access to Support

"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.

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. Now I really enjoy being able to chat with people on a wide variety of subjects."
