Re: Idiomatic Spanish - best resources?

I still have a lot to learn regarding idioms but telenovelas, podcasts, vlogs, and conversations partners have given me the most bang for my buck, so far. I have many books with idioms (largely turned out to be a bad decision, for me) but, there are two books that I actually manage to still browse t...

Re: A(nother) Spanish Log - Transition from Intermediate to Advanced

I am wondering which book you are using during your breakdown or is it a combo of both books. Thank you very much! During the week you referenced, I was switching between both books. I’ve since been sticking to ¡A toda vela! Both books have plenty of interesting writing prompts and have very well d...

Re: A(nother) Spanish Log - Transition from Intermediate to Advanced

------------------------------ ”Weekly” Update ------------------------------ Another productive week for Spanish. This is my first full week following the writing plan and I think it’s working well. I’ve met some really good proofreaders on Lang-8 who often go as far as to explain grammar. Even whe...

Re: James29's Spanish (and sometimes French) Log

I'm still slightly perplexed by the usted/tu selection. In La Nina they seem to use these words in ways that I just don't really understand. For example, there is a young couple that are both the same age and they use usted with each other even when they are kissing. It just seems odd. Then they se...

Re: Chmury - Un Cielo Claro

La única serie que he visto nunca fue El Internado , y cuando lo veía casi no entendí ni jota de lo que decían. Fue a principios de mi aprendizaje y lo que me faltó de capacidad, me sobró de motivación. También me acuerdo de haber visto algunos episodios de una serie argentina que se llama Epitafio...

Re: Por favor, ayúdame a aprender Español!

I am learning Spanish myself, so I probably wouldn’t be the best to 'criticize' your videos but, I can offer my thoughts on possible topics and vocabulary you might study next. ---------------------- Things to Study: ---------------------- I would second reading Iguanamon’s post on his multitrack me...

Re: Por favor, ayúdame a aprender Español!

Hola a todos! Hi, I'm currently two months deep into intense(ish) study of Spanish and my goal is to challenge myself to become conversational by Christmas this year (2017) [...] Even after only two months of study, you seem pretty comfortable in your YouTube videos. I look forward to following you...

Re: Chmury - Un Cielo Claro

¿Qué tipo de examen hiciste? ¿Cómo te fue? Me fue bien, realicé esta prueba de nivel que tiene Cervantes y, me pusieron un nivel C1. 3 - C1. 4. Para serte sincero, sólo me atrevería a tomar el B2. Pruebas como estas sólo sirven para dar una idea de cual nivel del DELE uno debería estar preparándose...
