Tips for Learning Spanish
How to learn Spanish. There are two basic ways of learning Spanish: immersion, which is simply observing and imitating speakers of the language, picking it up as a child would, and formal study, which is learning the vocabulary and grammar of a language through rote learning. Spanish is a beautiful language with a long history and over 550 million speakers worldwide. The satisfaction you’ll feel after having your first proper conversation in Spanish will make it totally worth the effort! Here are some great ideas on how to learn to speak Spanish and have fun in the process!
- Practice with someone who speaks the language fluently and is familiar with the pronunciation.
- Practice all four components of language learning. You need to practice reading, writing, listening and speaking. Make sure you spend time on each one of these aspects of language learning.
- Many words in one Latin-based language (Italian, Spanish, French, etc.) are quite similar to words in another language. Learn the rules of conversion between languages. Just from simple conversions, you may already have a Spanish vocabulary of 2,000 words.
