Common Uses of the Spanish Word “Faltar”

I won’t shy away from the fact that I really like this lesson. It’s important. And not just for the vocab, though that too.

“Faltar” is a close relative of “quedar” (featured in the last Spanish Tidbit)–in fact, it could be considered the opposite.

But there’s something else going on in this video. One of the biggest hurdles Spanish learners face is simply a mindset problem.

So in this video, not only are you going to learn some really useful uses (I guess all uses are useful by definition) of the Spanish word “faltar,” but you’re also going to see a good example of how words work.

Words don’t mean words. Words mean ideas. Remember that.

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.
