  1. Dear Mr.Rodrigo
    This is Vivek I am from India and i know 4 languages (Hindi, English, Malayalam, Tamil)
    I have joined the Cervantes institute for learning Spanish, and on Youtube i have been following your lectures
    Your teaching is very accessible and i have improved a lot in learning the language
    I really thank you for the effort
    I have one question
    Why is there so much thrust on gender in Romantic languages
    Why is gender so important that we have to inject it in inanimate objects too
    And why is it not that important in English?

  2. just want tell you tank you very much for this greit job and well teachin. thnx to you that i can littl bit spanish now.. gracias

  3. You have given me a new hope of being able to remain here in Mexico with my husband.
    I have recently celebrated my 68th birthday. I am having a hard time retaining a lot of information but as I stated above I am very hopeful
    I thank you for your effort in helping us.

  4. Hola Rodrigo!
    Thanks for providing these amazing Spanish lessons. They are a hidden gem, the one I have been searching for so long. I am sure your lessons will lay a solid foundation for me to learn Spanish. The quizzes at the end of combination lessons provide a great way to test our knowledge and progress. Thanks once again.

  5. Hello Rodrigo,
    Just started your class. Awsome. I’m very satisfied with your stady and calm performance. I wish I have “met” you before. Greetings from Denmark.

    • Hola Jakeline. Disculpa la demora en responder. Acabo de regresar de un largo viaje por Asia, y aún me estoy poniendo al día con los mensajes atrasados. Esta prueba contiene ejercicios de español para estudiantes angloparlantes que están estudiando español. Si estás estudiando ingles con mis clases te recomiendo hacer las pruebas de ingles, porque son las que te servirán para repasar y asimilar los conceptos estudiados 😉

    • Hello Sahil. Thanks for your kind feedback, and sorry for the late reply. I have just returned from a one month long trip to Asia, and I’m catching-up with old emails. I’m glad to know that you like the course. You just need to be a little bit patient with the first videos, because the video-quality is not very good. But later you will realize that the more recent ones are much better. I’m glad to see that you’re already doing Spanish quiz Nbr. 1. The quizzes are really important to let all what you are learning sink it 🙂 Kind regards!

  6. I have just started your course and thought I understood some basic sentences, but only getting 12 out of 5o on the quiz proves how little I knew, looking forward to what appears a well laid out course, I have had group lessons and Synergy Spanish which I find good, but starting on your course and going back to basics appears to be ideal for me and going back to basics. I did not realice how little I knew.

    • Hello Graham. Thanks for your kind feedback, and sorry for the late reply. I have just returned from a one month long trip to Asia, and I’m catching-up with old emails. I’m glad to know that you like the course. You just need to be a little bit patient with the first videos, because the video-quality is not very good. But later you will realize that the more recent ones are much better. Also, I recommend that you do each Spanish quiz as soon as you finish studying its corresponding video. Good luck!

    • Spanish from Spain uses a different pronoun for the 2 person in the singular. And it also conjugates verbs differently for this pronoun. People in Latin-America with a very low education may have issues understanding that. But that would be dreadful, because those few nuances from Spanish from Spain should be taught in all Latin-American schools. Even if they prefer to speak their own way! Spanish from Spain and from whatever other Spanish speaking country should work everywhere. I’m shocked to read that it didn’t work! Nevertheless, I’m Latin-American, and in my lessons I teach Spanish with the Spanish nuances and with the Latin-American nuances. So you shouldn’t have trouble in any Spanish speaking country in the world.

      I’ve been around the world. Including Latin-America from North to South, and Spain. Spanish works everywhere, despite different accents and a regional preference for one or another word 😉

  7. Senor,
    The corrections for Quiz 1-5 numbers 5, and 6 do not match up. The email I received is different from online results. #5 online shows four possible answers and the email shows one. #6 online shows two possible answers and the email shows none.

    • Hello Margaret. I’m currently traveling. Right now I was going through some old unanswered messages, and I found this one. I think I had replied it, but I’m not sure. I see you are talking about an email with the corrections from the Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1. However, I should receive a copy of every test that is emailed to each student, and I cannot find any under you email address. Have you already been able to Login using this email? Do you still need any help or assistance from me? Please let me know and I’ll be glad to help.

  8. Great resource! Very thorough explanations. I will keep going and pay closer attention when I watch the videos. (I was working on a crochet project through the first ones. ha.) You are a great teacher.

    • The email address when you register is just so that you can receive by email a copy of every correction of every test and quiz you do. It’s in the student’s own interest. And I receive a copy of them as well. And when a student asks me to take a look at his/her test (exceptionally), I can find it thanks to the email address.

      What do you mean that I’m rejecting them? Can you please specify?

  9. Hola Rodrigo~
    So glad I came upon your videos! Your lessons are very thorough, however, I find it frustrating to listen through a long explanation of how to sound out all the words in a sentence, only to have you tell us in the end that there’s a SHORTER version of saying the same thing! For instance your explanation of how to ask someone for their email address. I think it would be more helpful to just give the short version from the beginning, since it would be less information to try to retain, and no one really uses the PROPER way of speaking anymore anyway.

    • Hello Jan. Thanks for your feedback. I made the many first video-lessons thinking of those who didn’t have any background whatsoever; and also thinking of adults that may not be so fast learning as younger students. But maybe I overdid it. I have received some other feedback similar to yours, and I know I is valid. I hope you can reach the more recent videos, and realize they have a faster pace.

  10. i’ve gotten 58 but i dunno out of what so if you please can you tell me
    your videos are so perfect i love sooo much and i’m arabic person 🙂 thx a lot
    Best Regards

    • Hello Anamin. Thanks for your feedback, and welcome to my Spanish quizzes 🙂 The total points for Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1 is 55. On the same page of each test it says the number of questions and the total points. Also, on the same page (and email) of the correction you will see your points. I just checked out your two results for Spanish test Nbr. 1 and it show me 39/55 and 33/55.

  11. Hola Rodrigo

    I am walking the Camino Frances to Santiago commencing at the end of the month, and find your videos perfect for my way of learning. I watch the video and absorb it, then later watch it again and take notes. I’ve just discovered your quizzes, and these too are excellent and really help absorb my learning. A small correction to assist you: in your notes to Quiz 1, Answer (3), you’ve written Ellos, but I think you mean Ustedes. Anyway, thanks so much for these lessons. Best wishes, Ian .

    • Hello Ian. I’ve been thinking of doing the Camino de Santiago for some years. I also plan to do the 960 km way from France. But since I move a lot, maybe it’s better to do it next time I’m living in Europe. I hope you really enjoy the experience! Did you plan for a month?
      I will check out the question from Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1 that you mentioned. Thanks

      • I’ve allowed six weeks between flights, so there’s no need to rush along the Camino – and I should have plenty of time to work on my Spanish.

    • Hello Mike. I just tried logging into Spanish Quiz 1 with your user/psw and it worked. Your user is the same as your email. Are you using the psw that I emailed you last Sunday? If you are trying to log-in with your email address and the correct password, and you are not being able to, please send me more details regarding where you are clicking, and what error you get. So I can help you more :-)

  12. I am a little confused as to why the answers for ten are correct or incorrect. Is there somewhere that is discussed?

    • In the Spanish quiz Nbr. 1 question Nbr. 10 is multiple choice. That means that you select all the ones that are correct. And you will get point for every correct option that you check, and you will be discounted points for every wrong option that you check. Which ones are incorrect? Those that don’t make sense in one way or another. For example:

      – How old are you?
      – I’m 13, and the weather is blue.

      This would be an example of a wrong answer, that you shouldn’t check.

  13. Thank You for this =))) I got 37 out of 55. I got 4 mistakes. Gracias!
    Probably I could say that I am learning. Yey Thank You Lord Amen.

  14. Hello, I just wanted to say that you are an excellent teacher! Thank you so much for all your hard work. I decided to start learning Spanish after my trip to Cuba (I am a law student in the United States and this trip was part of my specialization). I am fluent in Estonian (my native tongue) and English (my second language), so I hope to be fluent in Spanish soon, as well. Thank you again for posting these videos and quizzes!

  15. each time when I try to take a test, it is very difficult to log in. the pass word is so long , I have difficult to reset the password. use the existing one, have to copy it for avoiding any mistake. but only give me test 1-5, i am trying to get in test 25-34, not able to get it. any suggestion to make it easier for me to log in?

    • Hi Shar. You are right! Unfortunately the password that is automatically assigned by default is very complicated. Often I have to change it for students, although each student can also change his own password online. But I have just reset your password and emailed it to you. Please try it to access the Spanish quiz you want to do, and let me know if anything goes wrong.
      Kind regards

      • I just tried the new password, it works much easier. I will keep using this password until something happens again. Thank you so very much for your help. Very grateful for your classes and tests. through the tests I know I have to be very very careful with every detail. Many times, even with my magnified eyeglasses, still the little scratch was invisible to me. .. But the mistakes are also good for learning . I am grateful to know I do not know so so much… keep following your teaching, practice, practice..that is only way.. thank you. great day.

        • Thanks for your kind feedback, Shar. Don’t hesitate to write if you have any questions. Also, little by little I am uploading the notes that correspond to the Spanish lessons. I think I already have the notes for lessons 1 through 46. If you need them, you can find them in the Index page (List of Lessons).

  16. hola rodrigo, me llamo mack y tengo (been) studying yours courses for a few weeks now ive learned mucho from it, although i do have some issues. my major problemo is learning how to structure sentences, and also understanding when “que” mean WHAT, THAT, AND TO. and when i try to speak it i have think about it andmy mines goes blank. do yo have any tips for me to start learning how to speak it more and let it flow with out me having to think about it? my goal is to be able to have a conversation in spanish by this time next year do you think i can do it?

    • Hi Mack. Sorry for the late reply. I had just returned from a long trip, and was trying to catch-up with old messages.

      I saw you did well in the Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1. I hope you are still learning.

      In Spanish the 2 types of WHAT are differentiated with the accent (tilde). Many people don’t use the tilde, because they don’t know the rules. But one is “qué” and the other one is “que”.

      qué = what (interrogative)
      que = that; also “what” (non-interrogative)

      For example:

      ¿Qué quieres? – What do you want?
      Dime qué quieres! – Tell me what you want.
      Le dije que iría – I told him/her that I would go.
      Me gustó lo que dijiste – I like what you said.

      As for “to”, I think it doesn’t have anything to do with “qué” or “que”. Where are you confused?

      Let me recommend you to watch my Spanish lesson Nbr. 218. There I mention a few tips that I think are good for learning in an effective way. You wont find any magic or miraculous tips; but it may still be of service to you.

  17. I’m an Asian, to be specific, a Filipino. When Spain colonized Philippines on 1500’s for like 300 years, the cultures, traditions and language of the Filipinos were greatly influenced. And even up to now, we still used some of the Spanish language. I got very interested on the Spanish language so I want to learn more and I’ve never been disappointed with you Rodrigo. You’re a good maestro. Hahaha. Looking forward to learning more from your spanish lessons on youtube. Thanks a lot!

    • Hi Jhazel. Thanks for your feedback. Someday I will visit your country. I heard it’s so nice, and people are very friendly.

      I noticed you did well in the Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1. Congratulations! Just keep learning and practicing. I will soon begin to post lessons with dialogs and conversations. This will complement the tons of grammar we’ve got 😀

  18. I’m kind of questioning number 6. It is saying “Uruguay” is one of the correct answers. Is that right?


  19. buenas dias , Jo soy memeshine , no habla espaniol . mucho gracias por tu lecciones , aqui mucho gente speak spanish jajaj . thanks 🙂 i got 33 i know it is not that good but i feel feliz and i still have hope that i will get 50/50 one day ! thanks again you are a great teacher.

    • Hi Memeshine. You did quite well in the Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1. You got “competent”, and most students fail in their first try. Don’t hesitate to write if you have questions regarding the lessons. Good luck, and keep up the good work!

  20. hi Rodrigo,

    i love your lessons they are really good.
    how is vosotros esta is en problemas and ustedes estan en problemas considered as You(pl)?

    • Hi. Thanks for your feedback 🙂
      Both, “vosotros” and “ustedes” means the same thing: you all (you Plural). As you probably saw in my lessons, “vosotros” is used in Spain, and “ustedes” is used in Latin America. But it doesn’t matter which one you choose to use if you ever travel to a Spanish speaking country, because either way will be understood anywhere.

      For your sentence:

      – Vosotros estáis en problemas.
      – Ustedes están en problemas.

      Was that your question?

  21. buenas tardes señor these lessons are very helpful thanks for sharing this to us for free. I was just confused because i answered some questions a minute ago that should not be answer because i think it is for quiz 4 lol i just want to share it i that’s why i got a lower score in that quiz. Oh well i am here now and done answering it and im glad that i got 42 over 55 as first timer 😀 your videos are really helpful so i will continue learning spanish until i succeed thank you again :)…. And to those people who’s also learning Spanish in here good luck to us and study well 🙂 Don’t give up.

    • Yes. Both are correct. But “pronto” means “soon”, and “luego” means “later”. Therefore, if you expect to see the other again in the same day, we usually say “hasta luego”. And if you expect to see the other person again soon, but not the same day, then we usually say “hasta pronto”.

  22. Hello Rodrigo! I liked your Spanish lessons a lot. Thank you ! And the quiz was great, not very easy sometimes, but interesting indeed.

    • Thanks, Vivian. I know the quizzes are tricky; but I made them so on purpose. The main purpose is not to pass or fail, but rather to benefit from the corrections and learn from your errors. BTW: You did very well in Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1. Congratulations!

  23. Hello and thank you so much for the lesson. Thank you for teaching Spanish. The quiz was difficult but I am enjoying that I am learning Spanish.

  24. First of all i really enjoy your lesson…
    heads of to you sir,you are doing a great job,and huge service to so many of your students.
    i loved it.

  25. thank you rodrigo …
    but i didn’t know my score in the exam ..
    please how can i receive my score ,,
    thank you very much for your great help

    • Hi Jameel. I just too a look at your result of the Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1. You did well: 36 points out of 55. My Spanish Quizzes are not so easy, because I have designed them to push my students to put into practice what they have learnt. And most of them fail the Spanish Quiz at the first try. So, congratulations for the achievement!

      I have just forwarded the result to your email. If you cannot find it, please check in your Spam folder, in case it was wrongly filtered.

  26. Thank you very much for creating this series, I am at the early stages (and need revision if my scores in tests are an indicator!), but I find it an excellent course, well thought out and well laid out.
    Thanks for all the effort you have clearly put into this. A real public service.

    • Hi Macarena,
      Thanks for your feedback. I’m glad you are finding the course helpful. Don’t stop practicing and doing the test. I insist so much on this, because it’s more comfortable to just leave the video-lessons playing, go through them all, and fine. But without some practice, you never get the same result. With each Spanish Quiz you do you will be accelerating your learning and improving your skills.

      All the best!

    • Hi Anil. I have tried logging in with another user, and also using another browser. Still, I cannot replicate this issue on my side. I always go to Spanish Quiz Nbr. 2 when ever I click on Spanish Quiz 2. And btw, no other user has complained so far about the same issue. So, my suspicion is: maybe your browser has cached some bad page. I have cleared all page-cache from the server-side. Perhaps if this time you try to login using a different browser (if not computer) than before, you wont have the same problem again. Can you check?

    • Hola Jenny:

      Primero que nada, esta prueba que completaste (Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1) es una prueba de español para angloparlantes. Puedes hacer todas las pruebas que desees. Pero las de inglés para hispanohablantes están el la sección “Pruebas de Ingles”. Supongo que ya lo sabes, pero por las dudas lo menciono igual.

      Por eso, en la 7 se esperaba que el estudiante escribiera “please” en español. Es decir, “por favor”. Por eso lo contó como mal, porque escribiste “please”.

      La 9 era simplemente “buenas noches”. “Good evening” y “good night” son dos formas de decir “buenas noches” en inglés. Si vamos simplemente a saludar decimos “good evening”, y si vamos a despedirnos de alguien que se va a dormir (o nosotros nos vamos a dormir) decimos “good night”. La frase en inglés para “buenas tardes” es “good afternoon”.


  27. I did really bad with the questions having multiple answers and my spelling of good evening. I said Buenos noches. Am embarrassed ????

    • Don’t feel embarrassed. Very few people do well the first time. I am aware that the test isn’t easy, despite covering the topics that were taught in the videos. Don’t worry, and just take it as another chance to learn and improve 😉

  28. Great..Had to really think…..Got 43 out of 55. A spelling mistake (o instead of a)and mixing up the permanent and temporary verb To Be, let me down!! Thanks Rodrigo. Superb site

    • I got an 38 out of 55. I could have done a lot better… at least it says I am competent…I will do better on next quiz….
      I got some of the answers wrong for when the “U” is mute. I need more studies on how to know when the “U” is mute….. are you able to email me more information on that.? and…. in number 6, it is a little confusing to me… how is “y” pronounced like an “I” ? it’s more like an” E ” to me. like for instance ” Y TU”. i think i got it mixed up with English and Spanish…. Thanks for the class. I really got into it and was taking notes!!!
      I live in Miami which has many Latinos from all over the world and I need to practice to get better.. Thanks for the free lessons, I can not wait to start on the next lessons!


      • Hi,

        Thanks for your feedback.

        Regarding the mute “u”, I guess there is not much to say. Just let me put it briefly here:

        gue – gui – que – qui

        These are absolutely the only cases where you will find mute “u” in Spanish. Whatever word that included any one of these combinations of letter, has a muted “u”. For example: guinda (cherry), guerra (war), quemar (to burn), quizás (maybe).

        For “gue” and “gui”, if we want to un-mute the “u”, we have to add what we call “diéresis” on top of the “u”. Like this: ungüento (ointment), pingüino (penguin).

        Now comes the explanation why the “u” is muted in these cases: gue, gui, que, qui:

        que – qui: “Q” is a peculiar letter in Spanish, because it may ONLY be used in these 2 cases. There does not exist any other case of using the letter “Q” correctly except these two syllables.

        gue – gui: As I mentioned in the video-lessons, “G” has 2 different sounds (as well as in English). The “soft” sound and the “hard” sound. If “G” if followed by A, O, U, then it carries the “hard” sound. IF it is followed by E, I, then it carries the “soft” sound (same sound as the Spanish “J”, or like a very rough English “H”). However, what do we do if we want or need to pronounce the “hard” “G” sound together with the E or I sound? We must at a “U” in between. Thus we can have a “hard” G sound followed by E or I sound. And what to do if we want to pronounce a hard G, followed by a U sound, and followed by an E or I sound? Here we have to add the “diéresis” on top of the “U”, thus indicating that the “U” is un-muted. Like here: pingüino, ungüento, paragüitas, etc.

        In question Nbr. 6 I meant the Spanish “i”, not the English “i”. I am taking your observation into account to specify that explicitly in the question phrasing. I believe I assumed it was obvious and actually it was not so obvious. I was thinking with my “Spanish logic” 😀

        I have been to Miami in 2007. Just for the weekend. Beautiful city! I regret not having had time to go to the beach!

        Good luck!

  29. Hola: les felicito porque he aprendido cada dia un poco del idioma del ingles.
    Me gustaria que me aclararan ciertas dudas con el quiz, que saque mala puntuacion porque creo que interprete mal el idioma.
    El ejercisio #4 no especifica si la pronunciacion era en ingles o en espanol, porque esta escrito en ambos, me confundi?
    El ejersicio #6 no aclara que sea una traducion al espanol.
    El ejercisio #7 dice: escribe abajo “please” usando solo letras pequena no aclara que tradusca al espanol”please” . Traduje mal la oracion?
    El ejercisio #9 dice: solo usando letras pequenas “minusculas” escribe abajo”good evening/good night” en espanol, no dice el sinonimo de estas que aun asi creo que evening es tarde.
    por favor saqueme de dudas para seguir aprendiendo ingles, gracias!
