I’ll bet this tricks you.

Here’s a very quick quiz,

Warning: It’s not as easy as it looks.

In fact, if you get more than 5 out of ten correct, you’ll be doing well.

How many of these very common Spanish phrases do you know? Grab a pen and translate these ten phrases:

  1. cuando mucho
  2. quiere decir
  3. más bien
  4. cómo no
  5. más allá
  6. no tiene que ver
  7. todo el mundo
  8. cuanto antes
  9. costar mucho trabajo
  10. de nuevo

It’s a good bet that you know every individual word on the list, but the meanings of the phrases will surprise you

Let’s see how you did?

Remember your target is to get more than five out of ten correct.

So, if you get 6 or more correct, bien hecho (well done).

Ok, you didn’t peek right?

Here are the answers:

  1. at the most
  2. it means
  3. rather
  4. of course
  5. beyond
  6. it’s got nothing to do with
  7. everyone
  8. As soon as possible
  9. to be hard to do
  10. once again

Sure, in context, literal translations will work. But the translations I just gave you are the ones you’ll hear the most.

You’ll start hearing them all over the place once you know them.

You’ll hear them, when you chat with your Spanish speaking friends, go to shops or
talk to the locals when you travel.

But it’s not casual Spanish or a slang Spanish or regional Spanish.

This is just as real as any Spanish you’ll find in a dictionary. From the man in the local store to the president, from a farm worker to a PHD graduate, they’ll all use these phrases.

And they use them very often. Very often!

It’s everyday Spanish

Yet, there it’s rarely taught.

A while back I started tracking the use of these types of phrases. It was part of my research for the Spanish Ear Training Masterclass series. You see, even if I train your ears, it won’t do you much good if you don’t understand what people are saying anyway.

If you’d like to give your Spanish a boost, I’ve made a mini dictionary of the 99 most essential Spanish collocations. It’s full of common, useful everyday language that goes más allá del dictionary beyond the dictionary.

So, that what I called it Más Allá Del Dicionario Español, (Beyond The Spanish Dictionary). To get the mini dictionary FREE, just enter your name and email below and I’ll email it to you right away.

saludos

Marcus

A very informative course. We like your way of teaching, much better than our native Spanish teacher who concentrates on grammar when we need conversation when we visit our Spanish home.

I’m very impressed with these emails and have chosen to pass them along to others in the hope they will enjoy as well. We live half of each year in Mexico and learning Spanish is a necessity. This sure helps.
Thanks

Your method is actually the most sensible way of learning Spanish that I’ve ever encountered! I wish I could afford to subscribe to your lessons; but it’s a bit difficult to pay such things while living in the Philippines at present. Maybe next year when we return to Javea. With kind regards – Lorna

I enjoy your work. It is really practical as a great review as well as a ‘no-nonsense’, but fun way of beginning or maintaining your Spanish studies. Your style has encouraged me to put some of my ‘Spanish shortcuts’ on paper. I’ve taught for about 40 years [ouch!] thru retirement. Look for me in ‘Hispania’ magazine. I know, it isn’t PEOPLE en espanol, but it is a start. It was in this magazine that I first saw the Spanish/Portuguese work of the late
Dr. Gregory LaGrone, U. of Texas.
It is a serious magazine.

Thanks. It’s almost a year now that I started with Synergy Spanish, whenever time allows I keep coming back to it wanting to expand my Spanish vocabulary. It’s been a great mental challenge for me, which someday I would like to use in a meaningful way. God Bless.
