El Ministerio del Tiempo – a must-see for all serious Spanish students!

El Ministerio del Tiempo

El Ministerio del Tiempo

This series is a must-see for the serious Spanish student.

If you have level B1 – B2 Spanish, give it a try.

Why?

The series is an entertaining way of practising your Spanish, whilst improving your knowledge and grasp of Spanish history at the same time. A real “double whammy”

With a good level of Spanish, we suggest that you watch El Ministerio del Tiempo with the subtitles on – in Spanish. This means that both your eye and ear are being trained at the same time.

Stop the action, if you need to look up a key word in your Spanish dictionary. This will consolidate your high level Spanish vocabulary acquisition. However, don’t do this too often, let the flow of the action also sweep you along.

In addition, El Ministerio del Tiempo will give you a real insight into some of the key turning points in Spanish history – in an entertaining way.

All in all El Ministerio del Tiempo is amusing, well acted and visually stimulating.

Yes – definitely, give it a try. You will not regret it.

Spanish Audio Courses

What are the advantages of Spanish audio courses?

There are many advantages of Spanish audio courses.

Did you can realise that you can turn your car into a mini language lesson, right now?

Why not turn that drive to work and from work into into valuable learning time?

Moreover, Brian Tracy, a motivational speaker, has suggested that you do precisely that.

If you are a gym enthusiast or a jogger – just plug the audio in and off you go! A double whammy – learning Spanish and  getting fit.

Or, of course, you can listen while you are out on your favourite walk in the countryside.

Mens sana in corpore sano ( a healthy mind in a healthy body) – as the Romans used to say.

Quotes from reviews on the products

……Fantastically easy! Very useful if you don’t know any Spanish, and in need of a decent springboard. I must also highly recomend the Michel Thomas method too, I used both before a trip to Spain last year and really did feel able to achieve considerably more than just ‘get by’ Spanish – didn’t need to swat much either – just listen and repeat. Easy peasy! I will admit, I’ve forgotten most of it – ha ha – but can use the review cds to refresh the memory, Michel Thomas’ pack contains review cds too. Michel Thomas vs Paul Noble – MT is more expensive, but I think they work very well together, and well worth every penny if you bring them together. Would be interested to see if Paul Noble produces an ‘Intimediate’ or ‘Advanced’ programme…..

….Having studied French to degree level and taught French at night school and English as a foreign language, I am a little sceptical about language courses. I had always meant to learn Spanish, saw how inexpensive this was and thought I’d give it a crack. I stuck it on my iPod while walking the dog and away I went.

I can seriously recommend this as a no-nonsense approach for beginners. Paul Noble breaks down the language into simple component parts and comes up with some great hints for easily extending your knowledge, using repetition to reinforce the learning and then picking up gently later in the lesson….

Quotes from reviews about Michel Thomas’ Spanish audio courses.

…..language learning, easy to use and stress free, useful if you have a busy lifestyle and wish to learn on the go….

…..I have bought Perfect Spanish and Total Spanish and I love Michel Thomas. He explains the vocab in an easy to remember style. The guy is a genius. I would have loved to have met him. I love the idea of being the third student in the room and learning from the other students errors. Very unique way of learning. Could not recommend it more highly…..

…..Great course.
