Upper-Intermediate Spanish Course

In this free Spanish lesson we will look at common Spanish phrases used a lot in relation to romantic sutuations, such as Colgarse de alguien (To fall in love) and Caer rendido (To fall at someone’s feet). You never know when you are going to fall in love. It could just as well occur on a holiday in Spain or Latin America and it would be a great pity not to be able to express your feelings and tell your new flame how much you like them. This Spanish video lesson won’t tell you how to do all of that, but it will introduce a few new and useful phrases that we use a lot in relation to romantic sutuations. I will look further into the topic of relationships and romance in Spanish in other lessons, along with social situations such as going out for a drink or going to a restaurant. The Spanish phrases featured in this lesson are of a more colloquial nature. There many be other similar Spanish phrases, but these are probably the ones that you will hear used more often and the ones that you will see in textbooks least often. I hope that you are enjoying my course and your Spanish is progressing well. You should be very proud of all the hard work you have put in!
