Re: Spanish Group

Wow, I just watched the intro. This looks amazing! Look at how she glides over the floor, kisses one and then the next, and now here comes a jealous one! I can already feel my heart pumping a little faster and stronger!

Re: Spanish Group

Yesterday I finished Destinos. It's a relief not having to deal with this thing anymore. That is not to say I didn't learn anything from it, because I learnt a lot. But that was when I was starting out with Spanish more than a year ago. For some reason I stopped watching it around the thirtieth epis...

Re: Spanish subjuntivo and pasados books

Click here! For a sample from the pasados book (from the pretérito perfecto unit, maybe not the most pressing issue). You can see the unit layout and also the table of contents. I'm also very interested in these books, thanks for notifying me! If you are to get them and work through them, I'd love ...

Re: Lists lists lists

Only a handful of these have come my way. IMDB describes La pianiste this way: "A young man romantically pursues his masochistic piano teacher." "Masochistic" may be an understatement! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0254686/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 The Crime and Punishment connection in Pi...

Re: Lists lists lists

I found a list of the 50 best Spanish tv series of all time according to Vanity Fair España.

Click!

I'm already watching Aqui no hay quien viva and Verano azul, and I'm aching to watch many more. Most of them are available for free through RTVE's website.

Lists lists lists

Let's make lists people. Let the recommendations flow freely. Movies, books, podcasts, series, favorite youtubers, anything goes. I'll start with a list of my favorite French movies, and by the way when I look at it now, this is a pretty good reason why I should get my shit together and bring my Spa...

Re: The use of FSI, a question of efficiency.

OP may want to have a look at: http://www.dicendipublishing.com/ Even if you don't want to buy their ibooks, I find the unit index very useful, to see a list of grammatical topics covered in each unit.

Re: The use of FSI, a question of efficiency.

Whenever I come across bold statements such as, let's say, that the audio-lingual methodology has been debunked by modern theory on second language acquisition, or that FSI courses are by nature inefficient, when it's obvious that this is not the case for the many people who have had success using t...
