Does your lack of verbs stop you from expressing yourself confidently in Spanish?

Do you regularly find yourself stumbling over verb conjugations and just “having a guess” which form to use?

You’re not alone!

Spanish learners the world over have a hard time mastering enough verbs to express themselves like intelligent adults in real-life, “non-scripted” conversations.

The result?

You’re stuck in the dreaded “quicksand” of basic Spanish.

You can hold your own and manage reasonably well in Spanish in certain basic situations….

… but when it comes to maintaining real, spontaneous conversations on a diverse range of topics… you simply can’t keep up or express yourself clearly!

The prime culprit: Spanish verbs.

Verbs are the most important building block of any language because we use them to express actions.

In Spanish, they’re especially important. You literally can’t form a single Spanish sentence without verbs.

So anything other than a rock-solid knowledge of a wide-range of Spanish verbs ain’t gonna cut the mustard.

I don’t mean the basic verbs like comer, pensar or escribir that you know inside out.

I mean more nuanced verbs like:
  • ​acabar
  • ​conseguir
  • ​cumplir
  • ​entregar
  • ​llevar
  • ​prestar
  • ​... and many more!
Here’s the truth:

These are the verbs that really unlock your speaking and bring life to your Spanish conversations.

Because they allow you to express yourself in a more eloquent and nuanced way, and in a wider variety of situations.

That’s why I’ve created this unique 30-Day Challenge - “101 Essential Spanish Verbs”.

This challenge will help you master 101 essential Spanish verbs in all tenses in just 30 days, so you can express yourself confidently in Spanish in any context!

No more frustrating silences.

No more embarrassing verb conjugation mistakes.

And most importantly… no more “surface-level only” Spanish conversations.

By the end of this challenge, you’ll be armed with a wide range of Spanish verbs and know how to use them confidently in any verb tense, so you can start enjoying truly meaningful conversations with native Spanish speakers, no matter the context.

Introducing the May Challenge:

101 Essential Spanish Verbs
Here’s how the challenge works.

The challenge is based on an exciting original story in Spanish that develops over the 30 days of the challenge.

This is a brand new story, written exclusively for this 30-Day Challenge.

We’ve created the story to be jam-packed with hundreds of examples of the most important Spanish verbs in ALL tenses.

Every day, you’ll receive one new chapter of the story, along with an insightful video lesson and simple exercises to help you understand the verbs that you find in the story.

It'll take you about 15 minutes each day.

All you have to do is show up every day…

Over the course of the month, the daily immersion will help you absorb 101 fluency-boosting Spanish verbs naturally, until they just “sound right” to you and you can use them instinctively and confidently to bring life to your spoken Spanish.

You’ll be able to speak Spanish more freedom and fluency, because the verbs you need will already be where you need them - on the tip of your tongue!

Frequently Asked Questions
What level is the challenge for?
Both the story and the lesson content are aimed at A2-B1 level. (That's high-beginner to low-intermediate).

In other words, this is for you if you've been studying Spanish for a little while (or maybe a long while!) and can understand at least some Spanish, but struggle to express yourself in a comfortable and natural way in conversation.
 I'm already using another course/app. I don't have time for this.
This challenge is a great complement to other Spanish courses or apps you might be learning with.

The reason is that most language courses focus on teaching you the language broadly... and that's great - you need those broad brushstrokes in order to understand how the language works.

But in this challenge, you'll focus intently on a single topic - Spanish verbs - for 30 days.

It's the perfect way of honing in on an essential aspect of the Spanish language that is probably only covered briefly in your other courses and apps... and mastering it once and for all.

This is totally doable because your daily commitment with this challenge is only 15 minutes. So it's pretty manageable amount of time to devote to your Spanish, even if you're currently using another course or app as well.

The challenge is also extremely flexible. We've designed each lesson to be easy to consume on the go, whenever you have a few free minutes, so you can fit it in comfortably:
• before breakfast
• during your lunch break
• after dinner
• ...even while waiting for the bus!
How can I access the challenge?
Mobile, desktop, laptop, tablet... The challenge is super user-friendly and you'll be able to log on from anywhere!
What exactly will I learn? How will this challenge help me?
During this challenge, we'll focus on 101 essential Spanish verbs in ALL verb tenses, recycled over and over throughout the story. You'll see these verbs used in different tenses and contexts over and over in the story.

This means you'll master the most important Spanish verbs to the point where they're effortless and automatic, and you instinctively know how to use them in conversation.
Which variety of Spanish do you use in the course?
We use neutral Spanish where possible, but use Castilian Spanish where a choice must be made. Dominique, our teacher, has studied Spanish in both Spain and Latin America and is familiar with both dialects and the differences between them.

Let me be clear: This challenge is for all learners and all varieties of Spanish. When it comes to the language, you need to learn to think like a native. And native Spanish speakers have the same internal understanding of Spanish... wherever they come from.

It's this native-like understanding of Spanish that you'll develop from this challenge. True, there are some variations in the language from country to country, but the differences are small and easily adaptable.
What if it's too hard, or my level is too low?
To make the challenge achievable, we've kept each chapter short - only 250 words! This means that you'll be able to easily make it to the end of the chapter each day, even if it does take you a little longer.

However, the daily video lessons will give you all the support you need, as you'll have clear, professional explanations for how the verbs are used in the story.

This means that, even if you're really unsure about Spanish verbs right now, just by watching and studying the daily videos, you'll learn to think about them like a native speaker by the end of the challenge. If I had my way, this is the only way students would ever learn Spanish!
What's so special about this "story" method anyway?
Most Spanish students try to learn Spanish through rules and rote memorisation. This doesn't work, and is extremely stressful for you as a learner. Why? Because there are lots of so-called "rules" to learn and it's impossible to hold them all in your head at the same time while you're speaking. It's also not a natural approach ... native speakers don't learn the language with rules, after all!

With the "101 Essential Spanish Verbs" challenge, you'll learn through example and context, just like native speakers do! The magic of learning through story is that your main focus is actually not on the memorising anything... you concentrate on understanding and enjoying the story!

As you're reading and listening to the story, these fluency-boosting verbs will begin to lodge themselves subconsciously in your brain. It doesn't happen right away - in fact it may take a couple of weeks for you to feel the real effects. But by the end of the 30 days, you'll have a native-like command of Spanish verbs that will amaze you.
I'm not sure I can commit for 30 days
Your daily commitment is only 15 minutes. This is because the principle of the challenge is that "little and often is the best way to learn". 15 minutes is a pretty manageable amount of time to devote to your Spanish.

You can fit it in comfortably:
• before breakfast
• during your lunch break
• after dinner
• ...even while waiting for the bus!

The power is in the consistency - working at it for a short time every day. You'll be amazed at the huge progress you make from simply showing up every day to work on one area of your Spanish!

Remember, you get the audio of the story, as well as the text, so you can easily take part and keep up wherever you happen to be!
What if I am unhappy with the challenge?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with the challenge, contact me at any point during the challenge and I'll issue you full and prompt refund
How long do I have access to the course after the end of the challenge?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
