Banging on About Learning Spanish Again

After hearing some rave reviews from people who had used the product I thought it was time to recommend another product to learn Spanish and start the integration process. So here it is. It is called Streetwise Spanish and claims that you will be speaking good Spanish and getting complements for it within a month.
(Disclaimer: It might take you a bit longer than that ;-))

Anyway have a look at it and decide for yourself. I have to say that it is much better than any other ebook I have seen for learning Spanish although you do nee to put some work in. It will not just come to you. If you are coming to Spain really you should be learning Spanish as virtually every interviewee in the Success in Spain audiobook series stated. It is very important and every day more essential when you think about getting a job in Spain.

What Happens When An Inheritance Goes Wrong

I have recently placed a property for sale in Spain on the website which just goes to show the folly that can happen when buying in a market that had overheated. The current owners inherited a tidy sum of money at the start of 2008 and bought a shack. They then added a double garage, swimming pool, renovated everything, put in a fantastic garden by buying already mature trees and landscaped everything using the pressed concrete method which looks really nice and for the price it should be.

Anyway the total cost after rounding up or down a bit is around 300k and the pool and garage are ever so slightly illegal, something they are trying to sort out right now. Remember this is a BMV Property for sale in Spain with an ultra modern solar system for light but it is still solar and not on mains.

They haven’t got a mortgage but they have got a problem. They have run out of money and there is a health issue. Therefore they want to sell. Meanwhile the bottom has fallen out of the market and when I went to see the property last week I gave them an estimated market value of 180k to which they should accept offers. They have intimated they will. Have a look at the photos and if you can handle the fact that a couple of the elements are ever so slightly illegal then think about whether this is a place that you may want to buy. It is on a plot of over 2000m2 comes fully furnished and of course is key ready as new.

Five minutes from the motor racing circuit at Cheste, ten from the airport and 15 from Valencia. Nice.

Check out the video too.

More Food Shopping

I found this really cheesy video on YouTube. Great images from markets in Spain. Compare and contrast with my recently bought fruit and veg video.

Seriously though buying food can be a great experience in Spain and is much better experienced in the markets or the small shops than the supermarkets. For a good discussion about what to buy and where have a look at this blog post by @bencurtis at Notes From Spain.
