PeppyBurro® does not teach you Spanish. But it helps you do the job yourself. And it does that sans gimmicks. Language skills are not something you concoct in a laboratory. You’re born with them. That’s right, everybody has the potential to acquire new languages and if the language in question is Spanish, PeppyBurro helps you realize yours. PeppyBurro doesn’t believe in the cookie-cutter regimen of memorizing mundane grammar rules and vocabulary lists, classrooms around the world are so obsessed with. Rote-memorization is passé and it’s hard to understand why common sense methodologies still haven’t taken over. At PeppyBurro, you learn to absorb new grammar concepts and vocabulary terms in the least painless way possible using mnemonics and other similar tricks. We are all about tricks.
What you get here is everything you could ever possibly need in order to get proficient in Spanish. Except for willpower (that’s something you’ve got to figure out for yourself). Everything else is covered. And everything you need is neatly assorted in sections so you could find what you need without much fuss. So what exactly does "everything" translate into? Let’s check them out, one wonder at a time.
Every affair with a new language begins with a dependable dictionary to familiarize you with those alien sounding words. And when it comes to Spanish, we help you break the ice with a world-class word-lookup service powered by the best names in the world of Spanish-English-Spanish dictionaries. By best we mean the likes of Collins® and Velasquez®. Pronunciation, verb conjugations, contextual usage examples – you name it, we’ve got it all covered for you.
Blog and Podcast
This is where the the magic happens! Classified under sections like motivation, vocabulary, grammar, colloquialism, etc., the articles posted to our blog bring you nothing but the best and the freshest.

Before you even begin learning, you might want to find out where you stand already in case you’ve tried a hand at it in the past. That’s where our Test Center comes in. Take your Spanish for a spin and find out if you’re a blank slate or a Don Quixote. These tests are designed by professionals and instantly give you not only your CEFL proficiency level but also instant advice on how to ace the next level as painlessly as practically possible, without leaving your house. This one is also free, just so you know. Well, knowing how good you are shouldn’t cost money anyway, should it?
This time-tested tool just refuses to die. If anything, it has only evolved into a more robust digital avatar of itself that follows you wherever you go, neatly tucked away inside your smartphone. Although rote memorization is something PeppyBurro avoids like faux tortillas, it’s always a good idea to have a deck of cards with useful vocabulary at hand for those occasional reviews. We list out a rich array of decks tailormade for learners of all shapes ands sizes. Go have a look, these are also free.
