Hola, it’s Rocky.

Did you see yesterday’s email? (this one)…

Well, here’s the followup —

Because I told you the #1 rule of becoming fluent in Spanish IS…

Real acquisition comes ONLY from comprehensible input.

That’s it.

I then explained that you know a piece of content is “comprehensible” when you understand at least 80% of it. 

But how do you check this?

It’s simple…

Take the first 50 words of the dialogue… break them down into 5 lines of 10 words.

You should understand at least 40 of the 50 words… so on average, 8 out of the 10 per line.

If you can do this, then the content will likely serve as “comprehensible input.”

But that brings the question…

What do you do if you CAN’T understand 80% of the content…

Do you just scrap it and give up?

No, of course not.

Instead, you use Spanish and English text to decode it.

This sounds complicated, but it’s pretty straightforward. 

What you want to do is compare the texts together and read along as you listen.

As long as you have the Spanish content, you can copy and paste it into Google Translate.

I know our teachers in school prohibited the use of Google Translate but guess what… 

We’re not in school and we are not trying to get an entirely grammatically correct English translation.

We simply want to know what’s being said in Spanish.

First, read through the text in Spanish and compare it to the English version to get a general understanding of what the content is about…

Then the first time you listen to the Spanish content, you should do so while reading in Spanish.

The second time you listen to it, read along in English.  

Keep alternating between Spanish and English until it becomes comprehensible. 

You will be shocked by how fast you retain the words and how few times you have to listen to understand.

Over time your comprehensible input RANGE will grow so vast that you won’t even need to have the text to understand it.

This is when your results will skyrocket. 

Pretty cool, right?

And it’s simple…


This is why most people “mess it up.”

So if you’ve ever wondered why some people just “pick up” languages so quickly…

The answer is because they do an excellent job of ignoring the traditional methods of memorizing vocabulary and grammar rules… 

And instead, focusing on consuming information that they understand—whether they realize it or not.

More comprehensible input = faster fluency

So that’s one of the secrets to acquiring Spanish and becoming fluent quickly.

I hope that helps!


P.S. No, I didn’t forget…

Remember that $1,000+ offer I talked about yesterday?

Here’s the big idea behind that…

If you are serious about leveling up your Spanish this year…

For the first time ever, I’m hosting a 6-week hands-on workshop that’s called “The Become a Spanish Speaker Workshop” (clever name, right? LOL kidding… only kidding).

For the next 6 weeks, I’ll be with you every step of the way, helping you improve your Spanish.

You will even get LIVE Zoom calls with me at the end of every week.

This will be precisely the accountability you need to hit the New Year running with your Spanish.

An hour of my time alone would typically be around $300 a session…

A few sessions a week for 6 weeks? That would get into the thousands…

Surprisingly, I have people willing to pay that much for my services.

But this workshop is only $295. You in?

Enrollment won’t be open long.
