Is there a product to learn English similar to the FSI programs to learn other languages? Specifically for Spanish speakers to learn ingles. Thanks

I am surprised nobody has answered yet. I have wondered this same thing too because I like to recommend programs to my language exchange partners. I would imagine there are some incredible sources available to learn English considering the language has much more demand than anything else out there.

My language exchange partners really like the Assimil English programs. I have also been very impressed with some people from Spain who have learned English through Vaughan Systems.

I don't think such a program exists. If I were an English guru I would create one that emulates FSI, it would be extremely popular because it would produce results. Boring but there would be results. (I am ESL certified and I am frustrated there is nothing like FSI for Spanish speakers)

I haven't used the English course, but the Cortina Method uses drills very similar to FSI and they have an English course from a Spanish base. Not sure how readily available the audio component is.

I've recently started using their Russian course since there's no full FSI Russian, and find it to be a good subtitute. They don't have pronunciation drills like FSI does though, only pattern drills.


Professor Arguelles has a video review of the series here on youtube

Update: After re-watching the Arguelles video I realized that not all their courses are pattern drill courses, some are bi-lingual assimil style courses.

On their website though it seems like they have a number of different course books for studying English, and I believe that includes their pattern drill method.
