Your Comments on Conversations in Spain
Back to Conversations in Spain
hi, reayly i wached very good english conversation , i got many keys of english learning, it,s very funy i’m very interested video learning english project
i am happy if you send me more video
i look forward to hear you again
From the evocative images of Granada to the revealing interviews with Spanish students, this short documentary captures the spirit of learning English in 21st century Spain. I especially appreciated the school director’s observation about how English allowed women in the 1950s a way to expand their choices. All in all, a surprising and quite satisfying micro-documentary for English teachers, students, and language school administrators.
May I also make a minor suggestion for future editions? A short quote emphasizing the importance of English for members of the EU opens the film, and cites Wikipedia. Why not quote the primary source for the EU statistics? Along with language skills, English teachers – at least at the high school and university levels – often need to emphasize academic standards. Wikepedia, a popular but uneven secondary source, is less persuasive than the primary source.
Or so it seems to me.
Again, thank you for the excellent documentary and good luck with the on-going project!

thanks for the video. it´s very interesting and helpful. i will try to “spread” to all of my friends “english language interested”…
Wonderful video. I think this is the best since the biggining of the serie. Practice makes perfection, as that old saying states. The city looks very beautiful and the interwievs were very well done. Great hint that one told by the Spanish girl who teaches English. People spend much time to learn English grammar and lists of vocabulary but this doesn’t work at the moment we have to speak.
Hi… I’m very glad to watch this video,, this is a new knowledge for me,, hopefully I can learn more from this site,, I look forward to see your project again, thank you very much.
Howdy people from all over!
Once again, the EnglishClub has provided us a very interesting look at teaching/learning the English language in Granada.
I myself tell my students over and over again to try to think in English rather than worrying so much to translate each word, each sentence. I do my best to start conversations in English at the very beggining of the class, you know, simple dialogues as in greeting. Having them get used to use the language in a spontaneous way. But of course, this is a very long road, so…as long there´s a will there´ll be a way specially for us, those who love guiding our students (I prefer the word “guide” to “teach”)
Very nice job, EnglishClub!
As always, thanks a lot English Club and Daniel to share with us this alive material. It is very important to realise that people around the world have the same interest of learning English, and as I can see in this and other videos we have almost the same problem to speak English. But I am sure we are in the correct way…..Thank you again and God bless you.
Keep in touch!!
Piroska Varga says:
Thank you very much that I can be a member of English Club.Your videos and e-mails help me a lot to develop my English knowledge.
They are interesting and give me opportunity not only to read but
to listen and to understand real English text.
It would be very good if you could make a video on Budapest and
meet Hungarian teachers mostly in middle schools.English is the most popular foreign language here in Hungary.But I don’t agree with
method what they use and often choose that kind of English books
which are not good to learn everyday English .Children after 10 years
can’t speak. Thank you again your help. Best regards Piroska

John Currin says:
I would love to watch your video but maybe it is blocked here in China, is it on YouTube or Vimeo, if so it is blocked. Viddler is not blocked here. Maybe it is just me or my computer
michelle yang says:
I love this video very much ,and it makes me feel comfortable about learning English .I am always thaught that I am not native and try to be as great as Americans . It’s not easy so I feel frustrated sometimes .Even I study every day I still understand “it’s impossible ” ,now I know the best way to learn is not only writing and reading ,but also have to speak .
The English club really helps me so much ,gives me a chance to practice English in different ways . Thanks a lot for this wonderful vedio .=)
Daniel Emmerson says:
Thank you all so very much for your comments. I am really pleased to find out that you are enjoying The Learning English Video Project. As you may have seen from the other films we have released, each one has its own stlye and objective. Please remember that there are still three more films to come!
Best wishes and thank you once again for your support.
I really enjoyed watching this video. It was an eye-opener due to the comments by learners about speaking in the target language. A job very well done thanks for the documentaries.
I’ve really enjoyed the job, fantastic and really useful. I’ve learned so many useful things since Ijoined your wonderful
program and Iam still waiting for more. thanks alot for what you are doing
iara jardim says:
I always enjoy Danel’s videos and I always look forward to the next one.They are really good and show us a different approach of how to learn and teach the language.
Keep on with the excellent work.
The video i watched was so interesting.I have never watched this kind of video ever since i was born.I learnt so many things in video clip.
Once again i appreciate what you acted
sabri, Jordan says:
Realy I was fascinated by this video, actually I teach a non native speaker who speaks Spanish, so I could realize their faults and mistakes because they translate into Spanish and then reproduce it in English therefore they make mistakes like I can’t to make or He must to come.
I particularly appreciated the school director’s observation about how English is dramatically speard in Spain during 50s and 60s among ladies.
I highly appreciate a lot English Club and Daniel in particular to share with us this alive material and benefit from the mistakes they commit.
Carlos Mora says:
Hello everybody! form what I saw on this video I agree with the fact that we sometimes fell frustration or fear while we learn English. They say that we have just to relax and try to speak with confidence without paying attention to grammar or pronuntions mistakes, because, even native spaker make mistakes. However, I don’t agree with the fact that you have to travel abroad to become a fluent speaker, I know that it help, but most of the time the real important thing is to create a context where you use the language meaningful. I’m also want to say that I’m looking forward to seeing Daniel and his staff soon in Colombia
Prof Sanjida Rahim says:
Many thanks for the video. I always get new ideas from your videos. I have made a DVD of using mobile tools to teach English in my own lessons. I don’t have much time to make my video clips good as yours.
Look forward to the next video.
Prof Sanjida Rahim
Well done ! Great work!
Ukraine is waiting for you! You’ll find a lot of people here who speak English not badly though they’ve never been abroad. You’ll have an amazing opportunity to see the most fabulous country in the world. Ukrainian teachers and students will tell you their secrets of teaching and learning English.
Edwin Delgado says:
Just excellet! I really like this video as well as the others that were released, and I’m so happy of seeing how people care about the english language and they are so interested in learning it! You should come and visit us in Panama, we have several programs dedicated to Teaching English!!!! Regards!!!!
Dear English Club,
thank you for video english project , but I am verry sad because my computer verry late so I can’t see all video.
I hope I can see all video next time.
I really liked the video! It was quite interesting for me because I teach English in Spain. I´m a native speaker and my students have shared their thoughts with me regarding learning English in Spain and listening to the participants in the video was interesting. Thank you for sharing it!
Tara Benwell says:
Another great video Daniel and Joel! I’m looking forward to seeing the China film soon!
Norma Adrianzen says:
Great video, I learned English many years ago in Peru and is true most of the times I paid attention to the grammar at the time of talking more than just talking, Finally I move to USA and it was difficult in the beginning trying to understand because to me it was fast when they talked, it helps to isolate yourself from your native language to be able to break the barrier of understanding,tv shows and radio helped me a lot.
dear englishclub team,
those who find the solution of english really they need.
this type of videos I really happy now I learn a lot from
your video. thank you so much

Many thanks for your interesting Video Project in Spain. I really liked it a lot. The issues about teaching and learning a foreign language among all the people involved (director, students, and teachers ) are valuable to take into consideration in our daily improvement in any role we take, and to have have a great success in communicating in the target language.
this is a very good thing , very good film and I think we can learn something too.Thank you.

Mr.Josef Essberger ,I only say congratulations. This video – project is very good for all who learn or teach english,it is a great opportunity to know about other people the difficulty they have to speak a foreign language as anyone that is learning it. I am sure the best way to learn a foreign language is listening yet,as a child do. Thank you for the opportunity to review Spain ,that!s why in 1996 I was in Madrid and Barcelona,thank you again.

Reayly i wached very good english conversation, i am happy if you send me more video, fantastic. May i also make a minor suggestion for future editions?, a short quote emphasizing the importance of english for members of the EU opens the flim, and cite.People spend much time to learn English grammar and lists of vocabulary but this doesn’t work at the moment we have to speak. Even I study every day I still understand “it’s impossible ” ,now I know the best way to learn is not only writing and reading ,but also have to speak, Important the english for our children communication between different countries of the world, for example differend social networking pages myspace, facebook. i never did that, and people were always like, and you know how to speak?, and you neccessary the education in the word?
