Have you always wanted to learn how to speak Spanish but simply didn't have the time? Well look no further. 0You hold in your hands the most advanced and revolutionary method that was ever designed for QUICKLY becoming conversational in a language. In creating this time saving program, master linguist Yatir Nitzany spent nearly three years examining the 27 most common languages in the world and distilling from them the 350 words that are most likely to be used in real conversations. These 350 words were chosen in such a way that they are structurally interrelated, and when combined, they form sentences. Through various other discoveries about how real conservations work, that are detailed further in this book, Nitzany created the necessary tools for linking these words together in a specific way so that you may to become fluent NOW. If your desire is to learn complicated grammatical rules, or to speak Shakespearean Spanish, this book is NOT for you. However, if you need to actually hold a conversation whilst on a trip to a Spanish speaking country, to impress that certain someone, or to be able to speak with your grandfather or grandmother as soon as possible, then the Nitzany Method is what you have been looking for. This method is designed for fluency in a foreign language, while communicating in the present tense. Nitzany believes that what's most important is actually being able to understand and be understood by another human being right away. More formalized training in grammar rules, etc. can all come later. The first in a series of instructional language guides, the Nitzany Method's revolutionary approach is the only one in the world that uses it's unique language technology to actually enable you to speak and understand native speakers in the shortest amount of time possible. No more depending on volumes of books of fundamental, beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, all with hundreds of pages in order to learn a language. With "Conversational Spanish Quick and Easy" all you need are 53 pages. Learn Spanish today, not tomorrow, and get started NOW! Note and DISCLAIMER from the Author: I wish to stress this program is by NO means, shape, NOR form a phrase book!! The sole purpose of this book is to give you a fundamental platform to enable you to connect certain words to become conversational. Please also read the "Introduction" and the "About Me" section prior to commencing the program. In order to succeed with my method, please start on the very first page of the program (page #16) and fully master one page at a time prior to proceeding to the next, otherwise you will overwhelm yourself and fail. Please do NOT skip pages, nor start from the middle of the book. It is a myth that certain people are born with the gifted talent to learn a language and this book disproves that myth. With this method anyone can learn a foreign language as long as you follow these EXPLICIT directions: Memorize the vocabulary on each page, follow it by using a notecard to cover the words you have just memorized and test yourself. Then read the sentences below which are created from the vocabulary bank which you just mastered. Once fully memorized, then give yourself the green light to proceed to the next page. Again, if you proceed to the following page without mastering the previous, you are guaranteed to gain nothing from this book. If you follow the prescribed steps you will realize just how effective and simplistic this method is.

In my experience when it comes to different dialects of Spanish they only differ on a minor level. If two individuals from different Spanish speaking countries were to attempt to engage in conversation they would naturally understand a good 75-80% of what is said and only get lost on certain words and phrases. It is my goal in this language manual to use mostly terms that are universal and can be used and understood across the board.

BIEN-do LO KE e-STA es-ku-CHAN-do People learn their languages by hearing words and then understanding what they mean. A child learns words, strings them together in phrases, and is later corrected by his or her parents. Imagine if a 4-year-old in saying a sentence were forced to say the complete conjugation of the verb before going on to the next phrase! Yet many people think that to learn a new language they need to learn all the conjugations before they continue. This method is in essence a "mapping of sounds." The students are taught a phrase, what it means in English, and what the sounds look like through a phonetic transcription that is unique to this method. Spanish language learners may practice the sounds without the need of an instructor being present. The advantage is clear: it is one thing to hear the sounds and repeat the words; it is quite another thing to have a visual image of what the sounds look like. Recent research confirms what many have long suspected -- most people are a combination of visual and auditory learners. It only makes sense that a teaching approach should be directed at both modalities in addition to some kinesthetic activities to reinforce the learning. The students will be able to take what was spoken in the classroom and easily reinforce it at home through additional practice. In music some people can produce music "by ear" while others need to read the music. The printed page also describes the cadence and scales, whole or half notes, etc. In some ways this approach can be compared to sheet music rather than to music produced by ear. It is helpful to have written instructions to complement the initial practice regardless of whether one is trying to communicate the same sound in music or in language learning. This gives more detail and allows the producer to repeat the message more accurately. The four modalities of learning any language are reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Research has shown that a person can master any concept in any language after being exposed to it a total of ten times. It can be a language concept, a scientific theory, or a mathematical theorem, but the important point is the need for repetition. The goal of this approach is to make learning the Spanish language repetitive without being boring! Simple phrases are repeated in multiple contexts. Students are able to reproduce the phrases outside the classroom setting in situations where they feel comfortable. Since it is usually impossible to transport students to a Spanish-speaking environment, the method by definition needs to be vicarious. Of course the more they use the phrases taught in class and reproduced outside the classroom, the faster they learn the language. With repetition in and out of class their speed and pronunciation will improve; their words and sounds will all flow together. In this method the three steps of each concept are (1) the structure; (2) an example; and (3) a given practice task for the student with a partner. In the military the same steps are implemented to teach a task -- structure, example, and practice. It only stands to reason that the more opportunities the student has to practice a given task, the more efficient the learning will be in the student's memory bank. As the old adage goes, "Practice makes perfect." "
