An investment in my “travel” future

The second best decision of my adult life was learning Spanish. It was not easy. I used a variety of methods. The difficult part of learning Spanish is using it. When you meet a native or bilingual person you are on the hot seat. The words and short phrases will but you need a conversation ultimately. This is developed through careful studying and practice. Gritty gives endless practice. Even better the app helps make it very easy to listen. We learn through listening and then speaking. We have two ears and one mouth. I liked gritty beginnings because it breaks Phrases down even by different dialect. It made me realize that just as English is different by even some states and geographic locations. The same is for Spanish or any other language. Invest in the products based on the level you are. I can confidently state that gritty has transformed me from beginner to intermediate and maybe even further Day by Day. The satisfaction comes when you have a conversation and you walks away like nothing happened because it was each. It has a lot of “GRIT” BecAuse it challenges you or even gives you lines to certain situations. Clubs, cabs, meeting new people in different settings. This app is a great help

El Mejor

Gritty Spanish is a user-friendly and comprehensive App for learning the Spanish language. These short stories put you in real life situations where people from various spanish-speaking countries are using formal and informal words, phrases, and even profanity, to communicate.
Real Life Spanish.
Gritty Spanish is a terrific way to help train your ear to understand Spanish outside of your spanish class, or away from your slow-talking spanish tutor.
I prefer to hear the language in normal speed, which is pretty fast, but Gritty Spanish gives you the option of listening at 30% slower.
And now, with the Gritty Spanish App, which I have on my iPad Mini, and iPhone, I can give my ear a workout anytime I want.
Plus, after you listen to (and read in Spanish and English) the stories, there are explanations of the words and phrases and grammar rules.
As I said—Gritty Spanish is Comprehensive and User-friendly.
Buena Suerte, mis Amigos.

I make real progress using Gritty Spanish.

Having the transcript is essential for the first time listening to each vignette. Listening in slow mode with the transcript lets me achieve 100% comprehension. I identify subtle uses of the subjunctive, and colloquialisms. I never have to wonder “...wait...what????” By the time I get up to full speed, I have not only learned the lesson, I can immediately add what I have learned to my spoken Spanish - correctly and in context. Como un hablante nativo.
