Upper-Intermediate Spanish Course

In this free Spanish video lesson we will look at various useful Spanish phrases and structures to react to the actions of other people, such as Me encanta que + subjuntivo (I love …) and Odio que + subjuntivo (I hate …). This is the first lesson in a series of three Spanish lessons on this topic. These are the kinds of phrases in Spanish that we use all the time and you will hear them a lot if you watch Spanish television or are able to get involved in conversations with native Spanish speakers. Some of the phrases and structures here are colloquial Spanish such as Me chifla que + subjuntivo (I am crazy/mad about …) and others are more formal Spanish such as Me entusiasma que + subjuntivo (I am crazy/mad about …). It is always a good idea to get as much knowledge of both colloquial and formal Spanish as possible. Be careful not to concentrate too heavily on one or the other or you will risk coming unstuck. As you will see, all of the Spanish phrases here use the Spanish Subjunctive which we have covered in some detail earlier in this course. If you are still not 100% sure of how to use El subjuntivo I highly recommend going back and reviewing those previous Spanish lessons.
