Spanish Pronunciation Made Easy
Learn how to pronounce Spanish with confidence
A SELF-PACED ONLINE COURSE
Yes, you can easily master the secrets of Spanish pronunciation.
You want to learn some Spanish before your Camino de Santiago.
You find a list of “useful Spanish phrases for your Camino trip” and you get all excited… only to realise that it’s not as useful as you thought.
Can you pronounce those words and be sure you’ll be understood?
And if someone talks back to you… would you know what they are saying?
If your answer to those two questions was NO, you’re in the right place. This Spanish Pronunciation Masterclass will help you overcome those problems and enjoy a richer Camino.
The Camino de Santiago is a life-changing experience for most and being able to communicate with the locals and other pilgrims will further enrich your experience.
Some will argue you can use an app to translate what you need to say. But apps are not always accurate, batteries die and you can’t connect with other people if you keep your eyes on a screen. Others will say you can get by with no Spanish.
why just get by when you could have a richer, fuller experience?
Language is the only thing worth knowing, even poorly (Kató Lomb).
Some of the PROs of learning Spanish:
Be more relaxed and independent. You won’t need to find people who can translate for you. Your phone’s battery died? No problem! You got this!
Get a better response from people and connect more. The locals will go out of their way to help you when they see you’re making the effort to speak Spanish.
Help someone else communicate when they need it and become their Camino angel.
And the good news is you don’t need to master the language before you start your Camino. You just need the right tools. And that’s what I’m offering.
The Spanish Pronunciation Masterclass is your chance to start speaking Spanish and to turn those “not-so-useful” phrase lists into something you can actually use.
you stress over the thought of walking across Spain and not being able to communicate, especially in case of health issues or when looking for accommodation
like me, you get frustrated by those not-so-useful phrase lists or
you are using apps and other programmes to learn Spanish but you are not learning the language you need for the Camino de Santiago…
…then you’ll like the Spanish Pronunciation Masterclass.
It’s a self-paced online course, but you won’t be alone. You’ll have my feedback and support for a whole month! You don’t need that long to complete the Masterclass, but I want to make sure you have plenty of time.
📅 You set your own schedule.
⏰ As little as 15 minutes a day is OK.
Why should you do this Masterclass?
Spanish pronunciation is very regular. You can predict how to pronounce any word by how it’s written. The Spanish Pronunciation Masterclass will provide you with the tools to be able to pronounce any Spanish word you come across. And to do it correctly. Anytime!
Can you imagine that? I wish someone had told me how to do that in English when I was learning it (in fact, I could still do with that information, to be honest!).
But the Masterclass has other benefits too!
Improve your pronunciation. Avoid blank stares when you mispronounce something and people don’t understand what you’re trying to say.
Improve your listening skills. By knowing how a word is pronounced, you’re more likely to recognise it when you hear it.
Being understood and understanding more of what you hear will also boost your confidence.
Learn how to pronounce any Spanish word you see. Really. The course includes 7 short videos explaining all you need to know + exercises to practice what you’re learning.
Feedback & support from me for 1 month.
Unlimited access to the materials.
All the words and phrases you will learn are relevant to the Camino, so you’ll be able to use them.
¡Hola! Soy María
I was teaching Spanish in Ireland for years. Now I live on the Camino de Santiago. I see pilgrims passing by all the time. This sparked my enthusiasm for the Camino, a life-changing experience. And I believe that knowing at least some basic Spanish can enrich this experience.
So I decided to combine my teaching experience with my interest in the Camino: I created Spanish for the Camino, in order to help pilgrims have a better experience by giving them the tools to communicate in Spanish.

Learning more than “gracias” and “por favor” will make a huge difference to your Camino (Susan)
How does it work?
After you sign up, you will receive an email with the course materials. Materials include:
Links to video-lessons: around 1 hour video content, split into 7 short videos, 5-10 minutes each.
2 booklets, one with the video content and one with exercises so you can practice what you’re learning.
As you complete your exercises, you can send them to me and I will give you individual feedback on your progress. This will be done through voice message or email. If you have any questions or need help, I’ll be there too.
You will have unlimited access to all course materials.
What do past students say?
When I signed up I expected I’d learn some useful Spanish words and phrases, and I did. But the very best thing about it was that I learned how to pronounce almost any Spanish word I see! María presented the material very clearly, prepared challenging and useful practice exercises for each lesson and provided prompt and helpful feedback. When I returned for another Camino after the course I felt so much more confident saying the words on my list of useful phrases.
I appreciated that you listened carefully and could help me correct mispronunciations. Thank you for presenting such a well constructed and well presented course. You have used the best of distance education methods, providing careful scaffolding of tasks, clear development and sequencing of lessons, an appropriate mix of audio, video and text, and excellent tutorial support.
Signing up was an easy decision. I liked the focus on speaking and pronunciation. Maria’s emails and video instruction were clear and helpful and she was very prompt with her feedback. I began to feel confident to try to speak Spanish for the first time on my own. It was a small investment in time and money with a big payoff.
How will you benefit from the Spanish Pronunciation Masterclass?
You will learn a good number of words and phrases that you’ll be able to use on your Camino. No strange phrases that can’t be used in real life, like you get in some learning apps. That’s a promise!
You will also improve your listening skills, so it will be easier to figure out what people are saying to you.
You’ll be more independent. No need to rely on gadgets or internet connection in order to communicate.
Being more independent will make you feel more confident and reduce your anxiety and stress.

How will I receive the materials?
After you register, you will receive an email containing all the materials: links to the videos and 2 booklets with all the content + and exercises.

When and how will I get my feedback?

Is there a deadline to submit my assignments?
You can send me your assignments for revision within a month of your registration date. Ideally, you shouldn’t send all your assignments at once. If you space them out, you will be able to use that feedback for future assignments and you’ll benefit more from the programme.
