👋🏾 ¡Hola! I'm Tamara Marie
I host the Learn Spanish Con Salsa Podcast, and I'm a Certified Language Coach specializing in brain-friendly ways to help you learn foreign languages faster.
Speaking Spanish has allowed me to travel independently and make connections all over Latin America and the Caribbean. So far, I've been to Colombia, Costa Rica, Argentina, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Panama, and Mexico.
And I'm not done exploring yet.
But I wasn't always bilingual. I grew up in the US, and I spoke only English for most of my life.
I learned Spanish as an adult after I became addicted to salsa music. I realized I loved the rhythm but I didn’t know what the music was really about.
I was driven to understand the meaning of the songs and connect with Latino culture, so I used the music as my motivation and my learning material.
I'll never forget the first time someone asked me if I was a native Spanish speaker.
Not that long ago, I was just like you. Scouring the internet for the best way to learn Spanish.
I'm pretty sure I downloaded almost every app there was for learning Spanish, and checked out every book in the library on the topic.
And I made many mistakes along the way. I wasted a lot of time and learned some valuable (sometimes painful) lessons.
I want to share what I've learned to save you some time and help you get fluent faster.
I help my clients get their heads out of textbooks and get comfortable speaking Spanish in the real world.
Learn with us and get results...

You might be thinking, "Sounds interesting. Maybe I'll keep trying to learn by myself for a while and then I'll come back to this later."
But think about this for a minute..
Do you really have more time to waste, randomly searching the internet for language learning tips and trying to piece together your own program?
And how do you know if all of those conflicting opinions on the best way to learn a language will even work for YOU?
This scattered approach will take you ten times as long.
What if we saved you just a few days of frustration and searching every month? Isn't that worth $49?
And when you think of it:
If you're not willing to invest $49 a month to reaching your goals, is speaking Spanish fluently really a goal you want to achieve?
Most people spend more than that for a manicure and pedicure. And if get your nails done you probably keep them up by going more than once a month.
You justify the cost by saying you're treating yourself. And getting a pedicure just feels good (waaay better than you painting your own crusty toe nails...ijs).
But think about this...
How good will you feel when you're able to speak Spanish with confidence?
Trust me, it feels waaay better than a mani pedi and lasts A LOT longer.
This is a skill you'll have for life if you just commit 90 days to following a proven approach.
And until January 16, 2021, you get to join at the lowest rate possible.
My private coaching clients pay a minimum of $250/month.
And if you go the university route you'll spend years and thousands of dollars (and still only learn formal Spanish that won't help much when you're invited to hang out with your Colombian friend after class)
Honestly, we're not here to help you pass an exam.
We want you to learn authentic Spanish so you can communicate with real people in your community and when you travel.
You may not get a little hat with a tassel when you're done, but you'll be able to have real conversations with native Spanish speakers like Brittany did on her trip to Puerto Rico...
Brittany has consistently studied Spanish for 549 days (and counting!). After joining, she was able to have a 30-minute conversation with a native Spanish speaker from the Dominican Republic.

Spanish con Salsa is a great way to learn Spanish in a fun and non-intimidating way. They break down each song so I can understand the lyrics, and show how I can use those words in everyday conversation. I highly recommend it!.
Absolutely! We start with the absolute beginner level and will take you through to the intermediate level and beyond. We help you get started even if you have no Spanish vocabulary beyond "hola," and provide a weekly learning plan so you'll know exactly what to focus on to make rapid progress.
With a basic knowledge foundation and the structure and support we provide, you will be able to understand and learn Spanish in every course.
You can learn a great deal of Spanish from music when you have the structure and support we provide. We're not just giving you song lyrics, we're giving you a carefully curated playlist with not just lyrics, but vocabulary drills, short interactive lessons, and plenty of opportunities to practice speaking Spanish.
No matter what program you use to learn Spanish, the only way to achieve true fluency is with regular practice. We will give you all the tools but you have to actively engage with the Spanish Con Salsa community use the language in your day-to-day life. The Spanish Fluency Roadmap Course (free with your membership) will walk you through how to do this effectively.
If you choose the self-study option, we will direct you to cost-effective resources to practice speaking Spanish.
Our learning plans are designed for you to advance to the next level within 90 days when you spend just 3 days per week learning Spanish for 15 minutes per day.
In addition, you'll have the opportunity to practice speaking Spanish each week for 30 - 45 minutes. We highly recommend taking advantage of these sessions so you can practice speaking Spanish in a friendly, non-threatening environment and make progress faster.
All of our lessons are designed to be completed in short learning sessions of just 15 minutes a day. We recommend spending at least 3 - 4 days per week learning Spanish, plus conversation practice at least once per week.
That said, there's no such thing as falling behind. The courses are designed for you to learn at your own pace, and make progress as quickly or as slowly as you would like.
Also, we understand that life happens. If you need to pause your membership because of an extended vacation, illness, or just because you need a break, just email us and we'll take care of it. No need to fear you'll be a member and not using it.
And even if you don't use EVERYTHING we provide, wouldn't it be worth it to join if you could just improve your conversation skills?
Or if you could JUST understand native Spanish speakers better?
Or if you JUST learn the 1,000 most frequently used Spanish words and are actually able to use them?
Or if you JUST had a reliable, consistent community and coaches to go to for support instead of randomly googling "how to say X in Spanish"?
Or if you JUST had weekly conversation practice so you could speak Spanish regularly in a supportive, friendly environment?
The point is, don't feel pressured to use everything in the membership every day. We provide a full support structure so you can continue to make consistent progress towards Spanish fluency.
If you prefer self-study, you can always choose the stand-alone course option.
