30-DAY "STORY" CHALLENGE


Object Pronouns In Place

Take our grammar-slaying, fluency-boosting June challenge and say master those pesky Spanish words like "lo", "la", "me" and "te" once and for all!

Start Date: 1 August


Do you struggle with those pesky little Spanish words that pop up before and after verbs?

You know the ones I mean...

  • “Lo” and “La”.
  • “Me” and “Te”
  • “Se”, “Nos” and “Os”

If these little words make you want to tear your hair out, then I’ve got news for you…

You’re not alone!

In fact, Spanish learners from Barcelona to Buenos Aires and Sevilla to Santiago have a hard time getting to grips with these pesky little pronouns.

  • Memorising all these little words when you’re not even sure what they mean
  • Remembering whether to put them before or after the verb
  • And choosing which one comes first when you have two of them together!

And doing all of that while face-to-face with a native Spanish speaker!

  • Is it "lo" or “la”? ... AND does it go before the verb… or after it?
  • And what's the difference anyway?

It's easy to feel like you'll never truly get your head around Spanish object pronouns. It's just one of those things you'll have to live with, right?

Well, not so fast...

Help is at hand!

I’ve created a unique 30-day challenge, "Object Pronouns In Place", that will help you learn and internalise Spanish object pronouns, so you can use these mischievous little words confidently and correctly in conversation with native Spanish speakers.

No more boring grammar textbooks.

No more memorising rules.

And most importantly...

No more frustrating object pronoun mistakes when you chat with your Spanish-speaking family and friends.


Introducing the August Challenge:

"Object Pronouns In Place"

With…

Here’s how the challenge works.

The challenge is based on an exciting original story in Spanish that develops over the 30 days of the challenge.

This is a brand new story, written exclusively for this 30-Day Challenge.

We’ve created the story to be jam-packed with examples of both direct and indirect object pronouns. Every possible use for these tricky little words is covered in our challenge.

Every day, you’ll receive one new chapter of the story, along with short video lessons and simple exercises to help you understand how Spanish object pronouns are used in the story.

It'll take you about 15 minutes each day.

All you have to do is show up every day…

Over the course of the month, the daily immersion will help you absorb the grammar naturally, until you "just know" instinctively which pronoun to use, when to use them and where to put them in your sentences.

The result is that you'll be able to speak Spanish confidently without worrying about object pronouns or trying to figure them out in your head before you talk.

Instead, you'll use “lo”, “la” and all the other object pronouns freely and fluently, because...

1) You'll instinctively know when you need to use them and...

2) They will already be where you need them - on the tip of your tongue!

Here's What's Included...

The concept is beautifully simple!

Every day, for 30 days, you’ll get:

  • One 250-word chapter of our Spanish story (jam-packed examples of object pronouns in context)
  • The written story plus audio book (so you can read or listen...wherever you are!)
  • A short 5-minute video lesson with our instructor, Ana. (She’ll explain the usage of the object pronouns in the story)
  • A short daily practice exercise (to help you remember what you’ve learned)
  • Discussion with dozens of fellow challengers in our interactive Facebook group (so you can discuss the story and get answers to questions).

We’ve carefully structured the entire 30 days, so all you have to do is turn up and get stuck in!

Frequently Asked Questions


What level is the challenge for?
Both the story and the lesson content is aimed at A2-B1 level. (That's high-beginner to low-intermediate) In other words, this is for you if you've been studying Spanish for a little while (or maybe a long while!), can understand at least some Spanish, but struggle to talk about the past in a comfortable and natural way.
How can I access the challenge?
Mobile, desktop, laptop, tablet... The challenge is super user-friendly and you'll be able to log on from anywhere!
What exactly will I learn? How will this challenge help me?
During this challenge, we'll focus on the Spanish object pronouns and all of their different uses, recycled over and over throughout the story. You'll see object pronouns used in a number of different common situations over and over in the story. This means you'll learn the various uses of objects pronouns to the point where they're effortless and automatic and you'll learn to know instinctively know when to use them and where in the sentence to put them. You'll get daily lessons from Ana, where you'll learn why specifically why object pronouns are used in each example. This means you'll develop an intuitive and native-like understanding of when and how to use Spanish object pronouns.
What variety of Spanish do you use in the course?
We use neutral Spanish where possible, but use Castilian Spanish where a choice must be made. María, our tutor, is from Spain. But let me be clear: This challenge is for all learners and all varieties of Spanish. When it comes to grammar, you need to learn to think like a native. And native Spanish speakers have the same internal understanding of Spanish...wherever they come from. It's this native-like understanding of Spanish grammar that you'll develop from this challenge. True, there are some variations in grammar from country to country (Spanish from Spain tends to use more of the pretérito perfecto compuesto, for example), but the differences are small and easily adaptable. If you're taking pronunciation classes or studying local slang, then it makes sense to find a tutor who is local to your country of interest, but when it comes to grammar, the concepts are universal.
What if it's too hard, or my level is too low?
To make the challenge achievable, we've kept each chapter short - only 250 words! This means that you'll be able to easily make it to the end of the chapter each day, even if it does take you a little longer. However, the daily video lessons will give you all the support you need, as you'll have clear, professional explanations for why and how the subjunctive is used in the story. This means that, even if you're really unsure about the subjunctive right now, just by watching and studying the daily videos, you'll learn to think about it like a native speaker by the end of the challenge. If I had my way, this is the only way students would ever learn Spanish grammar!
What's so special about this "StoryLearning" method anyway?
Most Spanish students try to learn object pronouns through rules. This doesn't work, and is extremely stressful for you as a learner. Why? Because there are lots of so-called "rules" and it's impossible to hold them all in your head at the same time while you're speaking. It's also not a natural approach ... native speakers don't learn grammar with rules, after all! With the "Object Pronouns In Place" challenge, you'll learn through example and context, just like native speakers do! The magic of learning through story is that your main focus is actually not on the grammar... you concentrate on understanding and enjoying the story! As you're reading and listening to the story, the subjunctive will begin to lodge itself subconsciously in your brain. It doesn't happen right away - in fact it may take a couple of weeks for you to feel the real effects. But by the end of the 30 days, you'll have a native-like command of object pronouns that will amaze you.
I'm not sure I can commit for 30 days
Your daily commitment is only 15 minutes. This is because the principle of the challenge is little and often is the best way to learn. 15 minutes is a pretty manageable amount of time to devote to your Spanish. You can fit it in comfortably: • before breakfast • during your lunch break • after dinner • ...even while waiting for the bus! The power is in the consistency - working at it for a short time every day. You'll be amazed at the huge progress you make from simply showing up every day to work on one area of your Spanish! Remember, you get the audio of the story, as well as the text, so you can easily take part and keep up wherever you happen to be!
What if I am unhappy with the challenge?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with the challenge, contact me at any point during the challenge and I'll issue you full and prompt refund.
How long do I have access to the course after the end of the challenge?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
