About natural learning

The natural learning method or learning by imitation, is an easy but very effective technique to achieve fluency in a relatively short time. The target it’s learning Spanish in a natural way –as children do- through the observation/listening and subsequent imitation (exact repetition) to exercise and improve our verbal skills. Suitable for every level, since it’s learning by repetition of language structures, the grammatical or vocabulary knowledge is not used.

How will we apply this method?

We will use as resource, a (comedy) series of my own creation (made in Carmen). This series, it’s about the adventures of a Spanish family: “Los García”. Below, you can see the characters of the García’s family.

LOS GARCÍA / THE GARCIA FAMILY

Phases of the natural method

We will work to naturally train your oral skills and ensure that, in a short time, you will speak like a true native. To achieve this goal you will go through three phases:

  • Phase 1 – Listen and read: in the first phase you will only have to listen and read (there are subtitles).
  • Phase 2 – Listen and repeat: After each sentence there will be a pause that you will use to repeat exactly what you have heard. You will have speech bubbles as support.
Phase 2: Listen and repeat with speech bubbles
Phase 2: Listen and repeat with speech bubbles
  • Phase 3 – Clone me: the most difficult, you will have to talk at the same time, simultaneously as Carmen, you will be her shadow. Here you will not have textual support, it will help you to fine-tune the ear and memorize the structures and sounds.

This course is ideal for those students who hate grammar and prefer “action”, learn while having fun, learning by doing.

What does the course include?

Los García, Season 1, 6 episodes: comic series, subtitled in 7 languages, in Full-HD without advertising.

Transcription of the dialogues/videos: for those who want to know everything, although you do not have to worry if you do not understand something, that is not the objective, it is about repeating exactly the same in order to, naturally, improve the pronunciation and fluency of the language.

Recording of your voice: recording exercise. You will have to repeat the complete dialogue recording yourself so that Carmen, your teacher, can assess the progress of your oral skills and inform you of your progress and correct your mistakes. We provide you with the tools so you can easily record.

We believe that online education has to be as similar as possible to classroom education, that’s why you’re always going to see your teacher Carmen, her gestures, expressions, her lips, her smile… there’s no stick figures –rag doll– or a boring PPT and a voice in the background. It’s known that nonverbal language is essential to natural learning of the language.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or advanced or if your vocabulary is limited. It’s not a grammar course, it’s about learning in a natural way, by imitation of the common structure of the language, you don’t need to know them or understand their grammar to learn them, you need to practice them. Children speak perfectly without knowing grammar, they simply repeat structures learned by natural ways, practicing, making mistakes and going back to practice to achieve mastery.

Start whenever you want. The course is divided into lessons and each lesson may have multiple blocks.

The basic membership is for self-taught people who don’t need support o who prefer a cheaper option in exchange for a personal little extra effort.
