Way back, I had to learn Spanish, so I could talk to my new in-laws, but quickly found out it wouldn't be easy. The classes and textbooks didn't give me the practical skills I needed. So I came up with my own ways to learn. Before long, I was joining in on the conversation around the table and on my way to fluency.
Fast forward, I have a degree in Spanish and five children who I wanted to become bilingual. In 2017 I started a blog about how to learn Spanish on your own and teach your kids.
Now I'm on a mission to help 1,000 language learners add 1,000 Spanish words to their active vocabulary.
I decided to recreate my exact learning systems that helped me understand others and express myself clearly in Spanish, so you can get there easier and faster.

I've always been drawn to my Spanish heritage. But it was never a priority. I made resolutions, got books and said I would learn Spanish, I just never got around to it.
A good friend of mine sent me a link for the study planner. That was where everything changed for me. I just need a simple start. A year later, now I feel accomplished instead of guilty like I used to for not following through.
I'm so pleased with my progress and I can't wait to see what I can do by next year. Thank you, Rachel for your amazing resources.
