Spanish for Retirees: Lesson 3

Since the series is new, I decided to go ahead and publish the first three lessons right away. Don’t get used to this pace! My goal from this point on is one new lesson a week. I have to dedicate some time to writing blog articles too. 😉

Additional Lessons

On 07/31/17, we made the decision to stop posting new lessons on the blog site.

All of our Spanish lessons can now be found on our YouTube channel:

    Thank you so much for these lessons. I am 68 and have been very frustrated because I know so little Spanish. We have a place in Telchac Puerto and I want to show my beautiful neighbors that I care about them and their “language “. Walter

    I took a 6 week course in beginning Spanish, in the last two hours I have learned more than I did in six weeks and I love laughing at your meme!! is there a list of those Cognitive words (same basic work in Spanish as English) I would hate to Spanisfy words that shouldn’t be!!!

  7. Love your format. Mucha Gracias. I spend a lot of time in Mexico and a perpetual easy Spanish student

  8. Thank you. It was quickly becoming too fast paced for me. Once a week will work much better.

  9. Thank Paul for your lessons. I speak Spanish well and had few lessons that I remember. You have brought back the why’s and your accent is really good. Not like alot of people who try to teach. Am really enjoying them!!
