Start by Learning Some Common Spanish Phrases...

Start by learning some common Spanish phrases, such as how to greet and farewell people, and what to say at different times of the day. Perhaps you want to ask someone how they are, or what they've been up to lately... and you'll need to know what to say when someone asks you! With this quick audio tutorial you can also practice welcoming someone in Spanish and saying sorry (if only for your beginner Spanish!)

You'll have these mastered in no time, but remember, you can't just listen to them, you have to pronounce them...yes, out loud!

Add A Few More Simple Spanish Phrases...

Once you feel comfortable with how to pronounce the essentials, you'll be ready to add a few more simple Spanish phrases to your collection of expressions. Listen carefully to the native speaker's pronunciation of these phrases and learn how to talk about the necessities (we all need to know where to find a restroom!), how to express your feelings, talk about the weather, times of day, the months and seasons.

Useful Spanish Phrases for Traveling

If you are planning to travel to Spain, Mexico, or another Spanish-speaking country, either for work or pleasure, we have compiled a list of useful Spanish phrases to help you navigate some common scenarios.

How do you ask about flight times, changing money or where to find a taxi in Spanish? How do you tell someone you are lost? These useful Spanish phrases will help you in all kinds of situations, whether you are at the airport, traveling around the city, at the bank or in a restaurant.

Romantic Spanish Phrases

Perhaps you are already familiar with these basic expressions and you have more specific Spanish phrases in mind.

One of the greatest motivations for people to learn a second language is love! What do you say when you meet that special Spanish-speaking person and you discover you're falling in love?

Learn how to say "I love you" in Spanish and other romantic Spanish phrases by listening to the audio and repeating after the native speaker. You'll be whispering sweet Spanish nothings in no time!

Medical Spanish Phrases

And last but not least, (and we hope you won't need them) we've selected some simple medical Spanish phrases for you to have on hand just in case your travels take you on an unplanned trip to the pharmacy or hospital.

Being surrounded by a foreign language isn't easy, especially if you have to navigate the health care system or find yourself face to face with a doctor and need to explain your illness. Knowing a few medical Spanish phrases will make the experience a whole lot easier.

Hi, I'm Daniel Garcia.

No, I did not speak Spanish as my first language, or as a matter of fact at all. I've used *competitor* and tried out *competitor*, and many others. But I've gotten more from my 5 visits to Mexico than listening to them all, all of the time. But since using Rocket Spanish I have improved in my recognition of words and phrases. Even my sister who is with me driving in the truck started to learn some new words. Then when I showed my brother whose wife is from Cuba he said it sounded great.

So when I go on my next South American venture I'll be much better prepared thanks to Rocket Spanish.

And so far the Customer Support has been exceptional! After I bought the program, they sent me an email helping me to use all the tools provided. It has been really nice to find this, I can say enough good about them.

The games really do help in the recognition, unlike many other programs I have tried over the years. And Mauricio's voice is very clear and very precise. So overall I am really enjoying myself and can't wait to be in South America speaking with the natives. Gracias por todo Mauricio and Amy.

Yes, my name is Rick Ogden. I am a Professor of family medicine in Kansas City, Missouri at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Bio Sciences, and every year we take approximately 30 medical students to Guatemala to set up clinics in the rural villages and offer medical care to people who have no medical care available.

I wanted to learn Spanish better so that I could be a more effective mentor to the medical students and that I could relate more to the people who are patients in their own language and give them more comfort and ease during the physical examination portion.

I found the Rocket Languages Spanish module is very effective in helping me develop foundational language skills which will then allow me to communicate better with the patients we have on our international medical trip.

Thank you very much and I recommend highly this type of instruction and I find it to be very user friendly and I'm very glad that I signed up for it. Thank you.
