Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the Sentence Generator™?
    The Sentence Generator™ is both a method and a physical means for learning both conversational Spanish and Spanish structure.
  • Who benefits from the Sentence Generator™?
    Anyone who wants to learn to speak Spanish quickly. It is especially helpful for learners who have difficulty memorizing long lists of vocabulary words (nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs) and those who have a problem putting a sentence together.
  • What must I learn to begin to speak Spanish?
    In order to begin speaking Spanish you must know 30 core words-consisting of 8 subjects, 5 starter verbs, 10 infinitives, and 7 tag words.You also have to know how those 30 core words combine to form more than 1000 sentences. Because of the way the
    program constantly reviews the 30 core words, by the time you finish the Nivel Básico, you will have learned all 30 words.

  • Do you have any links to other Spanish materials that will complement this program?
    You can go to crossroadsvideo.com where students can find additional Journey Into Spanish materials such as the two videotape or DVD beginner level program: Español sin esfuerzo - Spanish the Easy Way which presents 14 categories of words that are similar in Spanish and English (a total of 5,000 cognates and near cognates) and English words which came from Spanish. The student cost of the program is $79.00.
