Whether you’re visiting Colombia, or want to chat with Colombians abroad, there’s no doubt that mastering Spanish is the best way to connect with locals.
Standard textbooks and language apps are a great place to start, but their problem is that they teach an overly formal version of the language that no native speaker would ever actually use. This sort of Spanish will forever mark you out as a novice.
These same tools also skip over much of the best parts of the language: the funny expressions, slang words, interesting quirks and little turns of phrase that are essential for you to have enjoyable interactions with Colombians and other native speakers.
Without this vital knowledge, you'll probably find that your Spanish conversation doesn't flow easily and that you're often left on the sidelines in social situations.
Your Shortcut to Language Success
Picking up all this additional material used to involve paying for a load of Spanish classes, and listening to thousands of hours of Colombian conversations. And I should know -- this is what I've spent years doing after first arriving to the country in 2007 (and in later building my blog: colombianspanish.co).
In fact, I've been a little obsessive about the whole language learning process, and have, over time, built up an extensive library of the Spanish words, phrases and slang that most textbooks miss out, but that are absolutely essential for any foreigner living in Colombia.
I've since developed this material into a range of learning resources and tools, which (I'm very pleased to say) have already helped hundreds of people to speak more natural-sounding Spanish, make Colombian friends, understand local jokes and fit easily into Colombian culture.
I’m very confident that they can help you too.
