Yes, that scary looking dude is me.

Hi my name is Ramses, and I’m an addict. I’m addicted to learning languages, bragging about how awesome my language skills are and publishing this on the web. My main focus has been, is, and will always be Spanish.

Because I’m majoring in Spanish you probably think I learned the language from my college classes. WRONG! My initial plan was to get fluent by following college classes and following the advice of my professors. That turned out to be a disaster. Not only did I learn very little, I also acquired a bad accent and absolutely no ‘right/wrong’ feeling when writing and speaking. That’s why I decided things had to change.

After surfing the Internet for days I discovered quite a few methods, and although most looked promising, they didn’t work — that is until I found something about “massive input”, “input before output”, and “no more vocab and grammar cramming” from the guys at In contrast to the previous methods I tried this looked pretty good and the results that these two Polish guys got were stunning. That’s why I decided to go into a “Spanish Only” mode, hence the title of this blog.

About one year later I’m pretty fluent, and all this without cramming grammar and loose words. No, all I did was have fun getting real, uncut, Spanish as input each and every day. That’s why I decided to launch this blog; to help people who struggle with Spanish and guide them towards fluency.

So, if you really want to learn Spanish by having fun, if you hate spending hundreds of dollars on books that don’t work anyway, then this blog is for you.
