Cognate Pattern #2: ATE to AR Verbs

This Spanish Quickie covers another cognate group. Which means more free words! Remember, cognates are free words because they’re basically the same in both English and Spanish. Just knowing these words exist, really is way more than half the battle. They’re a good investment of your time, is my point. Watch the video. Peruse the Word List. Then get out there… and speak some Spanish!

This video covers just one of the 30 cognate patterns from my premium course, Fun with Words. When you enroll in Fun with Words, you’ll get instant access to all 30 videos (and a ton more–cognates aren’t the only words covered).

The course includes everything you see on this page (the Word Lists) PLUS Audio Flashcards, which enable you to practice the words while driving, exercising, or whatever.

A native Spanish speaker says the word in Spanish, I say it in English. You can go in both directions, and shuffle them or mix them up. They’re really good practice.

When you become a Lifetime Member, you pay one (low) price to get instant access to every course I currently offer PLUS every course I release in the future--including my newest one, Logical Spanish.

BUT... when I release the new course in January, I'm discontinuing the Lifetime Membership FOREVER. So this is your last chance to become a Lifetime Member!

I made the Lifetime Membership such a good deal because--back in the day--I wanted to say "thank you" -- HOOK UP -- and OVERDELIVER to everybody who supported me [relatively] early on.

Well, it's not "early on" anymore! So the Lifetime Membership is going away. Become a Lifetime Member before it does! Get all my courses (now and in the future) for one, low price.
