You may recall that in 2010 we released what I call the “original” LSLC 3 – which consisted of 15 lessons. I was not involved in the selection of the vocabulary topics in the “original” LSLC 3. The LSLC instructors – who are all native Spanish speakers – selected the vocabulary topics. And like many Spanish courses, the vocabulary topics of the “original” LSLC 3 consisted of what Spanish instructors think that we — us gringos — should learn. Such as vocabulary related to religion – which is great for many. Especially if you are traveling to Latin America as part of a missionary or if you belong to a church that has lots of Spanish speakers.
But I listened to my customers who bought the “original” LSLC 3. And I found out that many of you who bought the “original” LSLC 3, simply wanted vocabulary topics that you could use in everyday conversations with plain ordinary Spanish speaking-folks in the U.S. and Latin America. So that’s why I decided to step in the picture.
And this time around, I told the LSLC instructors which vocabulary topics to include. What were my decisions based upon? I selected vocabulary topics that I had to learn or re-learn as an American living in Latin America (Colombia). Here are some Vocabulary topics that I had to either learn or re-learn in order to communicate with Spanish speakers here in Colombia – and that we have covered in the “20 core lessons” of the NEW and IMPROVED LSLC 3:
Vocabulary related to going to a party
Vocabulary covering for attending a university
Vocabulary related to going to “el circo” or “the circus”
Vocabulary related to eating
Vocabulary covering the names of family members
Vocabulary for cleaning the home
Vocabulary for health and medicine
Vocabulary for “los deportes” or Sports
