How to say “Day Off” in Spanish

by Dave Clark July 28th, 2011 More

Spanish Video Lesson – On my day off, I like to…

Spanish Day Off

Sometimes we all just need a day off. This week our video guy took a day off, so we don’t have our usual “awesome” video for you. Instead, Jake and I created our own low-budget video with you home-flip video (since we’re not professionals, it’s super short). Remember to come practice with us on our Visual Link Spanish Facebook page.

Here is the vocabulary for Facebook:

Day off Día libre
On my day off, I like to… En mi día libre, me gusta…
…sleep …dormir
…read …leer
…exercise …hacer ejercicio
…go on vacation …ir de vacaciones
…work in my yard/garden …trabajar en mi jardín
What do you like to do on your day off? ¿Qué te gusta hacer en tu día libre?

Hopefully you enjoyed this video lesson. To prepare for Facebook Fiesta Friday at a higher level, go learn Spanish at spanishprograms.com.

Telephone Spanish

by Jake Beus July 21st, 2011 More

Spanish Video Lesson – Telephone Spanish

Spanish Telephone Vocabulary

Whether or not you live in a Spanish-speaking country, this vocabulary could be helpful to you. When you are trying to make friends who speak Spanish, it is helpful to be able to speak with them on the telephone. You can meet new people and practice what you’ve learned with Visual Link Spanish on Facebook. If you end up doing some video chat with someone on Facebook or through another company, you could practice your telephone Spanish with them on Facebook. It would probably be even better if you could practice using a real telephone.

Here is the vocabulary from the video:

Whom do you like to speak with on the (by) phone? ¿Con quién le gusta hablar por teléfono?
I like to speak with… Me gusta hablar con…
…my friend …mi amigo/a
…my mom …mi mamá
…my wife …mi esposa
…my husband …mi esposo
…my girlfriend/fiancé …mi novia
…my boyfriend/fiancé …mi novio
Hello ¿Aló?
Hello (in Mexico) ¿Bueno?
With whom am I speaking? (Who is this?) ¿Con quién hablo?
(someone calls) Is Dave there? (This is he. Speaking.) Él habla
This is she. (She’s speaking) Ella habla.
How can I help you? ¿En qué puedo servirle?/ ¿En qué puedo ayudarle?

Hopefully you enjoyed this video lesson. Dave also taught you about having a fake conversation. If you didn’t notice, he faked a conversation with his grandma. That might be a funny way for you to get out of a conversation you don’t really want to be in. Remember, just because you speak Spanish doesn’t mean you always have to use it in real conversations ha.

Spanish Pick-up Lines

by Jake Beus July 15th, 2011 More

Spanish Video Lesson – Pick-up Lines

Spanish Pick-up Lines

Visit Visual Link Spanish on Facebook to practice these pick-up lines with over 9,000 people. Then go and practice with any of your own Facebook friends. This could be a turning point in your life. I know that some of the pick up lines are pretty cheesy, but you’ll probably get a smile out of whoever you use one of the lines on. Once you get a smile, you have bought yourself a few extra seconds to work your magic. You may want to immediately take it to the next level and use some Spanish love phrases.

Here is the vocabulary from the video:

How you doin’? ¿Qué tal?
You have a beautiful smile. Tienes una sonrisa bonita.
Can I buy you a drink? ¿Puedo comprarte una bebida?
This is a great song. Would you like to dance with me? Esta es una canción excelente. ¿Quieres bailar conmigo?
Hi, I’m a thief and I’m here to steal your heart. Hola, soy un ladrón y estoy aquí para robar tu corazón.
You are more beautiful than the stars in the sky. Eres más linda que las estrellas en el cielo.
Do you come here often? ¿Vienes aquí mucho?
Today is your birthday right? Oh, well that would’ve been cool. Hoy es tu cumpleaños, ¿verdad? Pues, sería chévere si fuera.
I lost my number, can I have yours? Perdí mi número. ¿Puedo tener el tuyo?

I will not guarantee you success with these pick-up lines. There are certain things you need to avoid doing when using these pick-up lines like having food in your mouth while using these great lines. If you are just getting started with Spanish, you may want to learn some conversational Spanish so you can go beyond the pick-up lines. Don’t forget to come and practice with Visual Link Spanish and over 9,000 people on Facebook!

Speak Spanish in Sentences

by Jake Beus July 7th, 2011 More

Spanish Video Lesson – Speak in Sentences

Speak Spanish in Sentences

It is important to be able to speak in complete sentences. Yo don’t want your speech to sound fragmented. When you learn new vocabulary, you should practice using the vocabulary in complete sentences instead of simply memorizing the word and hoping you’ll use it correctly in a sentence. Please be sure to visit Visual Link Spanish on Facebook to practice what you learned in the video. Practice speaking in complete sentences as much as possible. This will help you sound more fluent.

Here is the vocabulary from the video:

I want Quiero/Yo quiero
He wants El quiere
She wants Ella quiere
You want Usted quiere
I like Me gusta
You like Le gusta
to go ir
to walk caminar
to run correr
to take a taxi tomar un taxi
to the park al parque
to the pool a la piscina
to the restaurant al restaurante
to the movies al cine
to the hotel al hotel
to work al trabajo
I want to go to the movies. Quiero ir al cine.
Do you want to walk to the park? ¿Quiere caminar al parque?
Do you want to take a taxi to the hotel? ¿Quiere tomar un taxi al hotel?

The grouping method shown in the video is a simple taste of the Visual Link Spanish method. You can truly learn how to speak Spanish in complete sentences in just 15 minutes. You can try it out by visiting spanishprograms.com/trials/. I’ll see you on Facebook!
