In some areas in Panama, you can get by without leaning much Spanish. In other areas of Panama, you will need to know more Spanish. The good news is that you already know a lot more Spanish than you think! Here are a few examples:
A word that ends with OR in English is exactly the same in Spanish – just pronounced a little different with the accent on the last syllable in Spanish
Color = Color
Conductor = Conductor
Words that end with an AL are exactly the same in English and Spanish. In Spanish, you stress the last syllable when you say the word.
Principal = Principal
Hospital = Hospital
Words that end with BLE are identical in English and Spanish but you stress the next to the last syllable
Visable = Visable
Terrible = Terrible
Words that end with an IC, you just add an O in Spanish
Public = Publico
Plastic = Plastico
Words that ends with an IST, you just add an A in Spanish

See how easy that is! With about 17 little tricks like this, you will know more than 4,000 Spanish words in just a FEW HOURS!
I learned these little TRICKS from Gary A Scott’s Online Spanish Course. It’s currently on sale for only $79. You can learn at your own pace from the comfort of your home.
The LIVE class was taught in Boquete Panama a few years ago. I was surprised that almost everyone in the class was reading, writing and speaking in Spanish by the end of the first day.
During our live class and with the online class, Gary utilizes a special kind of music that you listen to which helps you learn faster and to retain what you learn quickly. This technique of learning is called Super Learning and was developed in Bulgaria in the 1960s by Dr. George Lozanov.
Do you need to know Spanish before you move to Panama? Absolutely not! But just knowing a little Spanish will certainly help.
These 17 tricks will expand your Spanish vocabulary quickly and help you be more confident when speaking Spanish. Combine these tricks with a BIG SMILE and Panamanians will bend over backwards to help you learn Spanish. They want to learn English too. So, together you can help each other communicate.
This is what others have to say about Gary Scott’s Online Spanish Course:
“I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.
“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it. It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.
“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this course. Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you. This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.”
“It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment. I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”. The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.”
“This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language. It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias! It was a great experience.”
