So you’re feeling stuck in upper beginner’s Spanish

You’ve been learning Spanish for a while now. You know lots of words, can understand it when it’s spoken slowly and clearly, and you know a good amount of grammar.

But when it comes to speaking, it feels like you’re stuck. You want to have conversations, but:

  • You often freeze up when trying to form sentences
  • Speaking with others is nerve-wracking
  • It feels impossible to keep up with “fast Spanish
  • You feel stuck in an upper beginner/lower intermediate level, unsure how to break through to conversational Spanish

Now you need a way to put the pieces together

Over 15 years ago, I started learning Spanish. I grew up in a monolingual English-speaking household and started my journey from zero, like you probably did.

Since then, I’ve lived, studied and worked in Latin America, and used my experience with Spanish to learn 3 other languages.

I’ve learned a lot about Spanish — and effective language learning — over the years.

Roadmap to Conversational is a 6 week course that shares everything I know about building confident Spanish skills.

Over the course of 6 weeks, you’ll break through to the next level via structured conversation practice and weekly lessons that help you become a savvier, more effective Spanish learner for life.

You’ll leave with Spanish skills you can actually use.

How It Works:

Weekly Themes & Structure

Each Sunday of the course, you’ll get access to a new set of video modules and an action list, telling you exactly what to do each day that week.

The video lessons are built around a specific skill you need to master in Spanish: Long-term vision, Pronunciation, Vocabulary, Listening, Grammar, and Speaking.

REGULAR SPEAKING PRACTICE

During the week, you’ll put those new skills into practice with real-world content (no textbooks).

All of this will build up to our weekly small group conversation practice, structured specifically around the things you’ve been practicing. 


Accountability & Feedback

Get unstuck and stay on track with regular check-ins.

Get questions answered, share wins & motivation, and connect with other learners at your level in a helpful, private group chat.


1-ON-1 SUPPORT

Get the structure and support you need to learn effectively and start using your Spanish.

I’m available throughout to answer your questions, give you personalized guidance, and share tips in live Q&As.

The
Conversation Group

Each week, we’ll hold an hour-long conversation practice session. You’ll practice skills like past, conditional, and future in a structured, conversational way.

You’ll get the topics well beforehand, plus guidance on how to practice the skills you’ll need for each particular session.

A Heads Up

This is not a traditional language course built around grammar learning goals.

Instead, we’ll use real world content as our primary learning material, and treat grammar as a tool, not the end goal.

Roadmap to Conversational will turn you into a smarter Spanish learner while building your practical language skills and conversational confidence.

It will take work (as you already know) — please be ready to commit at least 30 minutes a day.

The Logistics

Start Date: 20 min group orientation call on Saturday, October 7th, 2023 at 12pm EST
Conversation Group: 60 minutes on Thursdays. Exact time TBD based on your small group’s availability.
Live Q&A: 30 minutes on Mondays. Exact time TBD based on participants’ availability.
Video Course: Released gradually over the 6 weeks [~45-60 min/week]. Watch these at your own pace.
Daily Practice: You’ll know exactly what to do each day, and it’ll take 30-45 minutes.

You’ll be in a group of 5 max (plus Connor). I’ll do my best to pick a conversation group time that works for everyone.

Please plan to join the live conversation practice, as this is a key part of your success.

Lifetime Access to Course Materials

_____

In my experience, life gets in the way of even the most diligent Spanish learners. If that happens during the official 6–week course period, don’t worry — you’ll have access to all the course material when you are ready and able to come back to it. 

Or, as happens with almost anything we learn, we forget a certain percentage of it, Roadmap to Conversational will be here for you to come back and reference. 

I’m always adding to it and improving it, so you may come back to find new training, exercises, or inspiration.

Who is this course for?

Self-motivated learners who want to learn Spanish more effectively (but who understand that, like anything worthwhile in life, learning takes time and effort)
Lower intermediate & upper beginner learners who feel stuck or stagnant in their progress, and would like to start building speaking confidence
Learners with foundational vocabulary and grammar skills, who can understand everyday-type Spanish when spoken slowly and clearly.
Learners with foundational vocabulary and grammar skills, who can understand everyday-type Spanish when spoken slowly and clearly.

Who is this course not for?

Absolute beginners. If you haven’t spent much time with Spanish yet, this course will not be right for your level just yet. I’d encourage you to seek out a course that helps you build a strong foundation. Roadmap to Conversational is built to help turn that foundation into conversation skills.
Very advanced learners. The conversation sessions are likely to feel slow for advanced (B2+) speakers.
Learners who are dabbling in Spanish. This course will take commitment. If you’re not serious about Spanish right now, or if life is way too busy, you’ll benefit more by waiting until it’s a priority.

Questions? I’d love to hear from you:

A clear plan to follow

A real person to give you feedback

A system to help you stay on track.
