Want to learn Spanish? Pay close attention...
Have a Conversation in Spanish on the Street within 10 Weeks!
Learn how my ''Chess Game Approach'' will help you to pick up Spanish FAST!
Hey, it’s Xiaoma here!
So you want to learn Spanish?
Or maybe you’ve tried to learn Spanish in the past but you’ve forgotten most of it, and want to give it another try.
You’re in the right place!
On this page I’m going to show you how I learned Spanish fast. It’s the same method that I use to go from zero to a conversational level in almost any language nowadays.
And most of the time, I can do that within just a few weeks.
If you pay attention, you’ll also learn how YOU can hold fun and spontaneous conversations with Spanish speakers, in only ten weeks from now.
I invented this approach myself and it’s great for you if:
- You want to speak to Spanish people in their own language and win their respect
- You have Spanish or Latin American heritage but can't speak any Spanish yet
- You want to experience Spanish or Latin American culture from the inside out
Learning to speak Spanish will let you talk directly to the hearts of over 586,000,000 people.
Yes, I had to look that up ;)
You will impress friends and strangers and put a huge smile on their faces. Just like you see me do in my videos.

Why is Speaking Spanish so Hard?
Maybe you tried to learn Spanish in the past. You learned the basic words, maybe some grammar, and it felt like you were making progress.
But how often have you used your Spanish?
I mean how often have you spoken Spanish with a stranger in the real world?
Maybe you tried, but you got stuck translating Spanish in your head and completely froze up.
They say that Spanish is one of the easiest languages for English speakers to learn, but if it’s so easy, then why is it that most learners never become fluent?
The issue is that most language learners focus on stuff that doesn't really matter at the beginning. They’ll go way too deep into pronunciation or really focus on lists of numbers, colors, the alphabet, and that kind of stuff.
It’s true! I never start learning languages from the alphabet. You don’t need to either – I give you permission!
But this is the way most language courses work. And obviously, it's important to know all those things at some point.
But it’s like building a fancy house without a foundation. Eventually, it’s going to collapse and you need to start all over again.
When that happens, students get demotivated and give up!
That’s why I learn languages like I play chess.
Yes, no joke!
You can use this approach too, and the best thing is it works 100% from home.
In fact, I believe that it’s possible to learn to have a basic conversation in any language within just 24 hours.
Yes, 24 hours!
You probably think I’m kidding...
But I can guarantee it’s possible because I do this all the time on my YouTube channel
And trust me, I was definitely not the smartest kid in the class.
So what’s the secret?
Hi, I'm Arieh!
My real name is Arieh, but most people know me as Xiaoma. I run the popular YouTube channel Xiaomanyc.
Tens of millions of people watch my videos every month and see how I make connections with people from all kinds of backgrounds, by speaking to them in their language.
I’ve studied over 15 foreign languages, including Chinese, Spanish, Korean, French, Wolof, Maya, Italian, Indonesian, Navajo, Hindi, Punjabi, and Tibetan.
People always ask me how I do it. I get emails literally every day!
With my chess game approach, I managed to hold conversations in all these languages after just a few weeks of studying.
Since I’ve launched my very first Chinese course ‘’Street-Smart Chinese,’’ thousands of students from all over the world have joined and picked up a new language.
I understand that learning a language can be really boring and difficult because that’s how I experienced it at school.
That’s why I thought it was time to make language courses more practical for the real world!
And people seem to love this approach:
The Magic of my “Chess Game'' Approach
Chess players usually start the game with standard openings, like moving the pawn from E2 to E4. Then you know that you need to follow up with the Sicilian Defense. Then there are all kinds of standard responses, and that's because those are generally recognized as the best and most common moves.
And the more you play the game, the better you have those opening moves memorized. As the game gets more complex, your skills get tested more and more by all these variants.
Do you see the similarities between playing chess and learning languages?
That’s why I always focus on the ‘’opening moves’’ at the beginning.
Once you can ‘’open’’ a conversation and start speaking, you have a foundation that you can start building on.
Start with practical phrases like ‘’do you speak Spanish?’’ or ‘’I’m learning Spanish’’. The fancy stuff will follow later.
With this approach, you can speak a new language from the very beginning. This will give you the momentum you need to become fluent.

''Taking this Spanish class in retirement was one of the best things I ever did! The class was so much fun and it was made easily understandable. And it gave us the "opening chess moves" to start a conversation when we meet Spanish-speaking people. I loved every minute of it and learned so much!''

What is so Special about this Course?
Here’s why students are calling my Street-Smart courses the best all-around package for beginners:
✔ Focus on Real-Life Situations
When you start speaking Spanish with somebody, they will always ask you the same questions:
- How come you speak Spanish?
- Where are you from?
- Do you live here?
We’ll focus on the words, phrases and sentence structures that you need for your first conversations in Spanish in practical real-life situations.
Think about situations like:
- Ordering in a restaurant
- Going to the airport
- Interacting in a bar
- Haggling at the market
- Communicating at a bakery
Alejandra and her friends and I act out all these scenarios in video conversations to get you started speaking Spanish fast. We learn grammar naturally as it comes up in the dialogues, not by memorizing a list of points.
✔ Make Sentences from Day One
We don’t just teach you a bunch of phrases that you need to learn by heart. You will learn patterns of speech so that you can make your own sentences in Spanish and say whatever you want.
You don’t need any prior experience!
✔ Alejandra Will Be Your Personal Virtual Guide!
Like the idea of learning Spanish with a teacher?
We’ve added “walkthrough” videos. Alejandra will walk you step by step through all the dialogues of each lesson and give an in-depth explanation of all vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar features.
You’ll almost feel like you’re in a virtual classroom with her as your private teacher, where every single line of dialogue is clearly and simply broken down and explained. This lets me guarantee you the learning experience I want you to have!
Not only that, but you’ll be able to comment on all lesson content, and because of our passion for learning languages, not only do we read every single comment but we also usually reply!
What others are saying about Street-Smart Spanish...
''I loved this Spanish course. It is tailored to each individual to complete as much as they want, when they want.
The modules are informative and perfect for day to day Spanish. This interactive course is definitely better than a book or a tutor.''
Kris - Canada
''Loved this Spanish course, it was a fun and easy way to learn another language.''
Laurie - USA
How much would it be worth for you to hold conversations in Spanish?
That’s quite a hard question isn’t it?
It’s hard to put a price on the ability to speak Spanish and transform the way you interact with Spanish-speakers.
People from all over the world are spending thousands of dollars (or pounds, or euros!) to fly to Spain or Latin America to enroll in a language school.
But even those who don’t want to travel or can’t travel often end up spending over a thousand dollars to take Spanish lessons at a local language school.
There are also online courses that often charge a premium. The real question is, do they really work? Are the courses designed in a way that they keep you motivated and make learning Spanish fun?
My course does! 😉
And because of the huge reach I have on my social media channels I’m able to offer you a quality course without having to charge you thousands of dollars.
I am only asking for a small investment in yourself.
If you’re ready to put in the time, the results will pay off very quickly. That’s something I can guarantee!
