What is “The Easy-Shmeezy Guide to Spanish”?  

"The Easy-Shmeezy Guide to Spanish" is:  

  • The fun and easy way to learn Spanish
  • The Spanish book that assumes you know nothing about speaking Spanish 
  • The book that will have you speaking Spanish... starting right from the first page. 
  • The book that (with your support) will make Spanish available to people worldwide! 

Why The Easy-Shmeezy Guide to Spanish?

Great question! Yes there are already many spanish books out there. Here's the cool thing about this book. After over a decade of teaching and studying languages I have developed what I call the "99/1 Principle". It states as follows: 99% of most conversation onlyuse 1% of the words of the language. That's important for us because Spanish has over 100,000 words. That can be super overwhelming for someone learning a language. I get it. The Easy-Shmeezy Guide to Spanish teaches you those 1000 high frequency words according to themes, making it easier to remember. 

I know my system works because I have already sold over 15,000 copies of my other language books that use the same system. My inbox has received many emails from folks telling me that my J.E.T. System is a breath of fresh air. People who spent years in school learning a second language with no success have finally been able to speak using my books. I am not trying to brag, I'm just telling you that when you back The Easy-Shmeezy Guide to Spanish you're on the winning team.

Wouldn't it be better to study with a "real teacher" and a fat textbook that is much more extensive?

Let me ask you something….... How did you learn to swim? With a big textbook in a classroom? Probably not. You just jumped into the water, got comfortable, and before you knew it you were swimming like a fish. That’s what “The Easy-Shmeezy Guide to Spanish” is all about. Jumping right in. “The Easy-Shmeezy Guide to Spanish” uses my guaranteed, fool-proof “J.E.T.”System. In it I teaches how to: 

  •  “J”ump into the language and begin speaking right away. As you get comfortable, you can then… 
  •  “E”xpand your vocabulary and learn more. Once you feel very comfortable, then go out and…
  •  “T”alk to others! Speak Spanish with confidence - like a true Hispanic 

 “The Easy-Shmeezy Guide to Spanish” is complete with: 

 Mp3 audio lessons. That way you can hear exactly how words and phrases should be pronounced. 

 Over 1000 of the most common Spanish words and expressions 

Spanish songs, proverbs and jokes

Real life conversations 

And much much more…. 

Doesn’t it cost more than $3,400 to print a book?

 Good question! Yes, the total cost of the book is over $5,000. However I’ve already invested whatever I could on my own, but to complete “The Final Phase” (which includes final editing, typesetting and distribution) I require another $3,400. That’s my minimum goal - but with your help we could double, or even triple that amount! The more we raise the more we'll be able to spread the joy of Spanish! If I do raise more than the amount needed I will be creating a video course to go along with the book.

 Why Kickstarter? I believe in the kindness and beauty of the human spirit. With the power of social media, wonderful people like yourself will see the importance of this project and join me in making it come to fruition. Only YOU have the power to make this happen. You can help by making a pledge of any amount! Every little bit helps. Contributors at every level will receive thoughtful gifts as my way of saying "Thank you" for helping to fund my book. As with all Kickstarter projects, the goal must be met 100%. Otherwise the funding can’t go through. I would also be so grateful if you could like this page on Facebook and pass it along to anyone else you think may be interested. Thanks for your support, and let's make this happen!

 ¡Hasta la vista! Moshe Sherizen

Risks and challenges

So you might be wondering.....So, how do I know that this book is actually going to get published and actually get around the the stores.
I get it. I would wonder the same thing. Let me tell you, there's nothing to worry about. I have already sold over 15,000 copies of my other language books that are sold all ver the world in stores such as Barnes and Noble, Eichler's and Manny's. This book will be using the same marketing and distribution method, this way I know that all will go smoothly.
