Beginners/ Intermediate Refreshers


Coffee Break Spanish is a great podcast to download to work through if you’re beginning from scratch (or jump to just the episodes that interest you if you’re at an intermediate level). I used to love listening to this while I was on my way to work or cooking at home.

Grammar Books:

If you find grammar boring or confusing, you need these books. They explain everything clearly and concisely.

  • Acción gramática

A common text used to teach Castilian Spanish worldwide. I love how they break down the conjugations and explain things in a really clear way. This book is a great reference if you already live in Spain and therefore have access to books and magazines in Spanish so just need the “bones” of the language.

  • Grámatica de uso del español: Teoría y práctica

An excellent series of graded grammar books, with clear explanations all in Spanish and exercises using modern language. I send my students this book in PDF appropriate to their level and and use it to give self-study exercises based on the language they produce in sessions.
