Review of PickUp Spanish Course
Recently I came across a course called PickUp Spanish. It’s written by a fella who has been living in Latin America for years dating and seducing Latin girls. Since there are really no Spanish courses focused on dating and seduction I bought it and wanted to give you my take on it.
The course is marketed towards guys exclusively. Though most of the translations are handy whether you’re male or female all of his tips, advice and guidance covering dating and seduction is for men.
Pickup Spanish is divided into four sections. The first section covers the Spanish language itself while the other three sections cover dating and seduction specific to Latin America mixed with useful Spanish translations to go along with it.
Section 1: 80/20 Spanish
The first section teaches you how to get quickly up to speed in the Spanish Language. He shows you how to convert a lot of English words into their Spanish equivalents in order to build out your vocabulary fast. How to learn nouns and verb tenses at the same time along with easily created adverbs to give your conversations with Latinas more depth and color. He also gives the six verbs he recommends getting down pat that you will use the most for dating and seduction.
Section 2: Online Don Juan
The second section covers online dating so you can have Latinas ready to meet you once you touch down in Latin America. Topics include the dos and don’ts of creating and setting up a profile that will make the ladies feel compelled to message you along with how to maximize your response rates and build rapport online using Spanish. Later he shows how to move from the dating sites to Spanish text game to setting up the first meeting. He also provides tips and tricks for popular Latin dating sites along with formulas and scripts for Tinder in Latin America.
Section 3: Daytime Matador
The third section is devoted to day game which means approaching and meeting Latinas in places besides bars and clubs (which are covered in the fourth section). He goes over how day game is different in Latin America compared to Europe or North America. He gives you useful Spanish phrases to start conversations and build rapport then how to use humor and sexual tension properly in Latin America. All the steps are covered from the initial approach to having an instant date or getting her number for a later time. Also provided for you are the questions you’ll be asked all the time and constructing great answers for them. The last part of this section covers situational ice breakers- these are certain phrases and vocabulary for specific environments in Latin America.
Section 4: Nighttime Conquistador
The last section gives advice and translations for bars and clubs along with getting her back to your place (or hers) before moving things into the bedroom. His advice includes how to find the types of bars and clubs where you will be most successful, approaching in bars and clubs and getting the girl’s companions on your side. After that it goes into leaving the club and changing venues or getting her back to your place. This section finishes off with the Spanish used to make her comfortable at your place then jacking up the passion with bedroom Spanish.
I haven’t come across any other course that details dating and seduction in Spanish step by step like PickUp Spanish. Since it’s specifically geared to that it obviously isn’t as exhaustive as a full blown Spanish course like Pimsleur but it also costs less than the hundreds of dollars you’d spend for that. I like the balance between the translations and tips, recommendations and advice he provides. It’s a good mix. Things I was less impressed with were some typos; not in his translations but in his writing. Only some of the translations have audio clips to listen to. Lastly, the part devoted to bars and clubs didn’t feel quite as in depth since part of that section is spent covering when the girl is at your place and bedroom Spanish.
Besides the core course he includes plenty of other useful materials. Though I went through every part of the core course I didn’t go through all of the extras he has included. They are written by both the author and others. The core course is web based while the supplemental materials are pdf files:
