Unlike other online language providers, Spanish4foodies© doesn’t just focus on the linguistics or vocab, opting for a more holistic approach, because we believe it helps stimulate retention and comprehension, if you know why things are the way they are.
Our patented 6 step process to learning Spanish for food related situations.
*The need for passive learning (watching, hearing and reading), before being able to reproduce and speak a language, is the reason our program is audio, visual and tactile for now. We hope to bring pronunciation practice and the ability to synchronize the website with our products soon. In the meantime, remember…
We sign off with a promise and a short sermon. We will do our best to provide all of the tools necessary to learn a language and present it in the clearest way we know how. In the end, however, whether you learn or not, comes down to your motivation and willingness to spend a few minutes a day with Spanish4foodies©.
When you do all of this plays a major role in how quickly you assimilate the new language and logic. With your first cup of coffee or at the end of a long day? Probably not a good idea as your brain is groggy or fried. In the middle of your lunch break, when your belly is no longer rumbling, but work has yet to beckon? Now there’s an option. Or when you’re on the metro, waiting for someone at home, at the dinner table… You get the idea.
But it shouldn’t be a chore or something you dread. Your time on this site should be a way to disconnect from life for a few minutes, by escaping into a beautiful, rich, sometimes surreal language, and its equally tasty and textured food.
Spanish, like most languages, is much more nuanced than it will be presented here. There are often multiple correct ways of saying something, depending on the situation and mood. Sometimes we point this out, sometimes not. We aren’t pedantic and aren’t trying to get you certified in Spanish. Our objective is to simplify the learning process, to make sure you can understand and be understood. That being said, if you have a question, comment or suggestion, we’re always happy to hear it publicly in the comment section of a particular post or privately through our contact form.
