Intermediate Spanish Course

In this Spanish lesson we will look in detail at writing a letter in Spanish; specifically, more advanced ways of ending a letter in Spanish. We have already looked a little at the basics of how to write a letter in Spanish earlier in the course with a Spanish video lesson that highlighted the main key phrases we use. Now we will delve deeper and see more Spanish phrases such as Reciban un cordial saludo (Yours sincerely) and Dándole las gracias de antemano, le saluda atentamente (Thanking you in advance, yours sincerely). This continues the theme about writing in Spanish from the previous Spanish video lesson that specifically analysed different ways of beginning a letter in Spanish. I recommend that you review that lesson before or just after watching this new Spansih video lesson. We don’t write as many letters these days as we used to, but the skills learned in these video lessons will also come in very useful for writing emails in Spanish. If you have Spanish speaking friends I am sure they would love to receive a letter or an email and there are many ways to source out online Spanish writing buddies. The more you practice the better of course you will write. It takes time to get a feel for any language and the best way to develop that next level is to practice with native speakers.
