You Can Do It in Spanish

If you’d like to say “you can do it” in Spanish, you would generally say either, “tú puedes” (informal singular), “usted puede” (formal singular), or “ustedes pueden” (plural). There are also other variations like “sí, se puede” and “puedes hacerlo", so you have some flexibility in how you want to express the idea.

As complicated as Spanish verbs and pronouns might seem to some new learners, always remember that you don’t have to memorize all the variations and conjugations at once. Even with a phrase like “you can do it,” getting comfortable with the basic “tú puedes” will likely work well in most circumstances. After you feel acclimated to that phrase, you can slowly incorporate others with more nuanced meanings or levels of formality.

Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion® methodology teaches you the language, not just the words. Its effective because we prepare you to use your new language in your everyday life. So, it’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them. It helps you get ready to handle all situations with confidence.

Learn Spanish Words and Phrases

In addition to learning to say “you can do it” there are some other basic words and phrases you’ll want to focus on first. Mastering these basics can put you on the path to everyday conversation in Spanish. Here’s a more complete list of the basic words and phrases:

• Sí = Yes
• No = No
• ¿Quién? = Who?
• ¿Qué? = What?
• ¿Por qué? = Why?
• ¿Dónde? = Where?
• Hola = Hello
• Me gusta = I like
• No me gusta = I don’t like
• Adiós = Goodbye
• Por favor = Please
• Gracias = Thank You
• Lo siento = Sorry
• Salud = Bless you

To hone your pronunciation of the words, you’ll need immediate feedback on your efforts. Feedback will guide you in making needed corrections. Then you can practice until your mouth is able to readily shape the sounds that make up the language.

Rosetta Stone helps you get it right in a snap with the TruAccent™ speech engine instantly, which compares your voice to native and non-native speakers, and gives you real-time feedback. It’s also adjustable, which allows you to fine-tune your accent. TruAccent is among the most powerful tools for helping you learn and speak the Spanish language .

After you have learned to pronounce basic words and short phrases, it’s a natural transition to move to the longer phrases that make up so much of everyday conversation. Rosetta Stone’s brief, 10-minute lessons are built in just this way—first teaching the basics, then tackling the longer phrases. This approach helps you acquire the skills to speak Spanish with confidence.

I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.

I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!

I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.
