Françoise Hardy, Serge Gainsbourg, Henri Salvador and Nino Ferrer. Also Carla Bruni and Zazie. A few of my own favorites that are more modern are Ben L'Oncle Soul, Joyce Jonathan, and Tété

Hi, I'm ready to purchase Spanish level 2. I own level 1 on disk. I'm wondering if anyone has an opinion regarding purchasing on disk verses purchasing the download only version. The download version would be immediate which is great but I'm wondering if I'm missing a benefit if I do not buy the actual disk and download it myself. Thanks!!!! Cristina

Despues de is an expression that isn't to be taken literally word for word in English. Since de + el occur together, you have to form the contraction del for it to make grammatical sense.

'Despues' is followed by 'de' when it precedes a noun, and 'de' + 'el' = 'del', so, 'after the museum' is 'despues del museo.

Hello, I'm wondering when I use 'a' with tomar. When practicing with flashcards, the phrase we want to drink is queremos tomar. The phrase for we're going to drink two coffees is vamos a tomar dos cafes. So I haven't wrapped my brain around when to say a tomar vs just tomar. Thanks for any help out there :)

In your example of "We're going to drink two coffees," a special rule applies. Whenever the verb "Ir" (or any of its conjugated forms, such as "vamos") appears, it is followed by "a". Thus, "Vamos a tomar dos cafes," and NOT "Vamos tomar dos cafes."

Hola friends, I just want to share my experience in Mexico this past week. I am only on level 1 lesson 12 of my Spanish course. After a day in Mexico I found the courage to start speaking what little Spanish I have learned to anyone who could possibly understand me. I was able to order food and drinks, ask the price of things, say good morning, how are you etc. EVERYONE was so incredibly nice and encouraging. I asked a lot of questions and everyone was so happy to help. I was given suggestions regarding shows to watch on Netflix to help me along. Telenovelas here I come!! I just want to encourage anyone traveling to just go for it and start speaking!!! It was so much fun!!

Salut everyone, These are set expressions that always go together: Ce/Cet/Cette/Ces -ci/-là. They are used to identify an object. So you use them to specify which house or table or sandwich, etc you are talking about. It helps to picture yourself pointing at the object you're talking about when you use, for example Cette maison-ci - This house here - as opposed to Cette maison-là - That house there. Or you might be in a bakery and the baker asks you which bread you want. There's a big selection but you point at the one you want and say: Je veux ce pain-ci - I want this bread here And not: Ces pains-là - Those breads there And as @EOD K9 said, ici and là (or là-bas) would be used to give an actual location. And you wouldn't always point when you say: Ce restaurant est ici - That restaurant is here You are giving the location of a restaurant but you are not specifying which restaurant you are talking about, you aren't saying: This restaurant here. I hope this helps.

You wouldn't use la maison-ci. That would literally be saying "The house here". Instead, cette maison-ci means this house here. or cette maison-la. That house there. Ici and la denote actual location. The -ci and -la get tacked on to a noun to show relative whereabouts.

Hello, I'm having trouble understanding when to use un autre chose vs. quelque chose. When working in flashcards, one card is, I want to see something = je veux voir une autre chose. Another card is, She wants to buy something = elle veut acheter quelque chose. Any help would be appriciated. Thanks! Merci :)

Autre chose would translate to mean "something else" whereas quelque chose would mean "something". For example: "Je voudrais quelque chose à manger" - "I would like something to eat". "Je voudrais autre chose à manger" - "I would like something else (other than what I have now) to eat".
