A fun and effective method to learn Spanish, no textbooks required
Are you tired of being left out of the conversation when your Spanish-speaking friends are chatting away?
Do you listen to Latin music but you have no clue what’s being said?
You probably feel like Spanish speakers talk way too fast. You try to keep up but you only catch a few words here and there.
And when someone speaks to you directly in Spanish you get the “deer in headlights” look...
That’s when you realize your Duolingo trophies aren’t helping you have conversations with Spanish speakers in the real world.
If you’ve tried to learn Spanish before, you may have gotten bored or lost motivation. Then life happened….you got busy with work, your social life, other goals, and family obligations.
You told yourself you didn’t have the time and thought maybe learning Spanish was just too hard for you.
Well don’t worry, you’re not alone.
It’s easy to understand why you would give up on learning Spanish, or not even start in the first place. Especially if you’ve tried those ineffective programs that don’t teach you how people actually speak Spanish in day-to-day life.
If this sounds familiar, I want to share something with you that will help you go from feeling shy and embarrassed about not speaking Spanish to becoming a full-fledged member of the bilingual community.
With Spanish Con Salsa, you learn Spanish using music—a method shown to accelerate language learning.

My name is Tamara Marie and I'm a Certified Language Coach specializing in brain-friendly ways to learn foreign languages faster.
I’m also a Latin music addict (salsera y bachatera), traveler, and language lover (so far I speak English, Spanish, and some Brazilian Portuguese).
But I wasn’t born a gifted language learner. I grew up in the US only speaking English.
I taught myself Spanish as an adult after I became obsessed with 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 Spanish speakers and Latino culture, so I used the music as my motivation and my learning material.
The first time I was mistaken for a native Spanish speaker, I knew I was on to something.
I documented and tested my process with Spanish speakers at all levels. That's how Spanish Con Salsa began, and now you have a chance to join us :)

Join our members already learning Spanish Con Salsa...
The songs are great and as a complete beginner to Spanish, I've still been able to follow along with each lesson!"
I hope you can tell that I really want you to be successful learning Spanish.
I know you may have told yourself that it’s too hard, or it’s not really a big deal. But if you’ve read this far, you know that learning Spanish can change your life for the better.
You can have more meaningful relationships with friends and family members that can’t communicate with you in English.
You’ll be able to travel independently and socialize with Spanish speakers in 21 countries (not to mention your own!). The next person you meet could be your new bff, partner, or business associate.
And do you really want to risk continuing to listen to music and you don’t know what it means, or even if it’s offensive or vulgar?!
And if you need a health reason, you should know bilingualism is good for your brain—it improves executive function and delays age at onset of dementia.
So stop waiting for the perfect time...there's never a "right" time...the "right" time is when you decide to take action.

Still on the fence?
Let me ask you this.
If Spanish Con Salsa just helps you with one thing.
If Spanish Con Salsa JUST helps you get clear on your Spanish goals and map out a achievable path to Spanish fluency…
If Spanish Con Salsa JUST helps you get comfortable having a basic conversation in Spanish without getting tongue-tied...
If Spanish Con Salsa JUST helps you understand the lyrics to your favorite salsa song so you can truly appreciate it on a new level...
...wouldn't that be worth it?
That said there's really no huge risk involved.
You can either invest in yourself today and finally conquer Spanish (remember, you can cancel at anytime)…or you can do nothing & you'll be just where you are now.
So if what you're doing now is working, ¡buenísimo!
But if it's not, why not give this a try? It's 100% your choice.
