Spanish Geniuses, a division of Flip Flop Spanish (, is instructed and created by Señora Gose.

Spanish Geniuses Level 1 integrates all the modalities of Spanish, including speaking, reading, writing, and listening, to help students achieve a basic level of proficiency and confidence in communicating in the Spanish language.

Each class, or video lesson, includes a section of downloadable notes and daily assignments in PDF format, and usually two separate videos. One video gives the class-time notes (approximately 20-30 minutes in length), the other dictates the targeted vocabulary for that week’s lesson (approximately 6-8 minutes in length).

The vocabulary and pronunciation exercises expect that the student will listen and repeat aloud frequently, in addition to reading their homework exercises aloud, and is targeted at acquiring non-regional Spanish, meaning the goal is to have an accent and word choices akin to being “Midwestern” in the United States. In short, upon completion, students will be understood and understand basic Spanish in all Spanish speaking countries.

Daily homework is estimated to take about 20 to 30 minutes, outside of the video viewing day, plus added time for vocabulary practice. Classes are designed to move forward weekly, but can be accomplished more quickly or slowly.

Spanish Geniuses provides 26 separate lessons allowing students to study the elementary concepts of pronunciation and grammar, vocabulary, semantics, syntax, dialogue, and culture, being lead through toward understanding via short, entertaining stories and conversations orally and in print in the textbook Spanish Now! Level One, published by Barron’s.
