Hello, and a very warm welcome to Spanish Made Easy.  Learning another language is an amazing step to take.  It’s a recipe that has a few ingredients –

  • courage
  • patience
  • a willingness to make mistakes
  • consistency
  • and a sense of humor helps enormously

Learning a new language is a skill, and as a wise man once said, “All skills are learnable.” So, you can do it.  It certainly can be challenging, but that where this site come in.

So, who am I? My name is Stephen McTaggart and I’m a Scottish guy, married to a Mexican woman, and although I live near Edinburgh I take frequent trips to Spain and also visit family in Mexico every so often.

Learning Spanish has opened up a whole world to me – allowing me to travel, do business in foreign countries, and meet some amazing people.My journey in learning this beautiful language is ongoing, and I by no means have mastered it (far from it, in fact), but being able to communicate with people never fails to delight me and I am now at the point where I can function pretty well in Spanish-speaking countries.

My hope is that you will find the content on this site helpful.  It’s not designed to be a comprehensive Spanish course (there are other a couple of programs that I recommend for that), but to help and encourage you to get started and point you in the direction of resources that I’ve found useful.
