Introduction to the Spanish Language

These articles provide an overview of the language.

Unit 1: The Basics

These lessons introduce you to the building blocks of Spanish.

Unit 2: Verbs, Adjectives and More

In this group of lessons, we expand on the basics, focusing on verb conjugation and use of adjectives. We also start learning how to use prepositions.

Unit 3: Adverbs, Quantities and More

Topics covered include learning how to count and use numbers, using adverbs and adjectives, and making comparisons.

Unit 4: Prepositions and More

As you learn how to use some of the common prepositions, you will be able to speak and write more complex sentences.

Unit 5: Past Tenses and More

Several of the lessons in this deal with issues that can be confusing for beginning students, such as the differences between ser and estar, the verbs for "to be"; and the distinctions of the past tenses.

Types of Sentences

Once you get beyond simple statements, you'll find that Spanish uses certain words and sentence structures as clues to the type of sentence you're dealing with.
