“Which of these 8 Keys Will Be the One That Opens the Door to Exciting, Confident Conversations in Spanish?”
Have you ever found yourself feeling unsure about starting a Spanish conversation?
Do you have some Spanish under your belt? Yet you still lack the confidence to blend into daily life and comfortable conversations
Do you have trouble keeping up with the fast pace of Spanish conversation?
If so these 8 Master Keys to Spanish can unlock the language for you. They clear away blockages and activate the Spanish you already have.
This new system is different from anything you’ve tried before
You may have spent years in traditional Spanish classes. They’re good at teaching you the grammar and tons of in-depth Spanish lessons. But when it comes to actually giving you Spanish you feel comfortable speaking in your daily life, not so much. You memorize dozens (or even hundreds) of rules, yet stumble around even trying to have a basic conversation in Spanish.
Maybe you’ve even purchased a few online classes. Generally they’re better than the traditional classes, but they still don’t give you the confidence you need to hold flowing conversations with your amigos.
Or you might have studied textbooks. For many people this can make things worse. The textbooks intimidate them so much they become fearful of mistakes. They tighten up. It paralyzes them from opening their mouth and saying anything freely in Spanish.
Another you might have tried is the immersion method. This can be a fantastic way to pick up Spanish, especially for kids.
The trouble with immersion is adults can feel like they’re drowning. It‘s overwhelming as Spanish hits you like a tidal wave.
I used to feel humiliated by my lack of Spanish
I too used to feel overwhelmed by Spanish and embarrassed by how little I could actually speak. I hoped my English-speaking friends wouldn’t come and visit me. They’d see how weak my Spanish was even though I had spent years in a Spanish speaking country.
It was my embarrassment with my poor Spanish and my desperation to fit in that led to my first breakthrough. It took me from overwhelmed and drowning in Spanish to easily getting by in the language.
Since then, I’ve helped my students speak Spanish comfortably in their daily life for over 12 years…and many have even retired to a Spanish speaking country.
But I’ve made a recent discovery…a new way to help you get comfortable with the language faster. It’s all based on 8 Master Keys that will expand and multiply the Spanish you already know.
They’ll give you the confidence to start speaking with strangers. You’ll blend more easily into daily Spanish life. With them on your side you’ll experience newfound freedom with Spanish.
The Master Keys make speaking Spanish feel more natural for English speakers.
Instead of learning to speak you just speak to learn.
Each day they give you more ways to express yourself freely in Spanish.
If only I’d had them when I started learning Spanish. They would have saved me years of toil and desperation.
All I wanted to do was to fit in, chat with my amigo and speak with confidence.
In the beginning, I loyally studied the textbooks.
They taught me grammar, rules, and Spanish subjunctive.
Like a robot I followed what the textbooks told me to do.
But I still couldn’t speak with my amigos.
In fact the more I studied, the more my Spanish seemed to get worse.
I was so stuck in my head and thinking about rules and theory, that Spanish never flowed freely from my mouth.
I remember thinking, “There must be something wrong with me.”
“I’m too old.”
“I didn’t do well at school.”
“Maybe only kids can speak a new language.”
“Maybe my dream of traveling, living, and retiring in a Spanish speaking country was foolish.”
“I don’t know anyone who has learned Spanish as an adult.”
I had horrible thoughts of self-doubt. They made me so uncomfortable and nauseous.
But something inside me knew this line of thinking was wrong.
Part of me wanted to indulge in a pity party. Another part of me knew there had to be a better way.
How I went from failure to success with Spanish
I remembered my Karate Sensei, Peter, and our chats about the journey to mastery.
Sensei told about me how to the master’s path is the same whether it is for a musician, artist, parent, preacher, or a Karate Sensei.
He taught me it all starts with the basic moves. Practice them until you don’t need to think about them.
They just happen instantly.
In Karate he said, “You’ll get so good you can almost see a punch coming before it’s thrown. You don’t have to think. You just react naturally. It happens instinctively. You’ll be surprised with your own power.”
He was obsessed with the basic moves.
How I went from failure to success with Spanish
“Black belt moves are simply variations on a handful of basic moves.” he would say.
The same ones Sensei taught me in the very first class.
The path to mastery always starts with fundamentals.
When I looked at my textbooks I didn’t see a path to speaking, I didn’t see a path like the one Sensei told me about.
I only saw a path to theoretical academic mastery.
That wasn’t what I wanted.
I wanted to speak Spanish in daily life, so I could live and thrive in the Spanish-speaking world.
The textbook wasn’t going to take me there.
It was the wrong path.
I wasn’t too old. I wasn’t dumb.
The textbook path simply wasn’t made for people like me.
This started my to find a better path to unlock the Spanish language.
