Top 10 Ways to Learn Spanish!

By: kerry shahan

Most of us don't have the luxury of time to travel for a few months to a year in order to totally emerse ourselves in the foreign language to learn Spanish. So, If you enjoyed talking in Spanish during your last trip to Cancun or other festive destination in which Spanish was spoken and you told yourself that you want to speak like a native. Here are some options for you:

Top 10 ways to learn Spanish!

1.Date a Native Speaker

2.Practice Vocabulary frequently.

3.Consider .

4.Listen to Spoken Spanish whenever possible.

5.Get a friend who wants to speak Spanish and practice often.

6.Take Classes.

7.Concentrate on Verbs.

8.Travel to a foreign country.

9.Read more about the Spanish culture.

10.Go to your favorite Mexican restaurant and order in Spanish.

It's been over 10 years since I first have been trying to convince myself that I can learn Spanish but every year around New Years Day that resolution keeps popping back up with little to no progress being made to actually achieve the goal.

This year I made an advancement..I decided to invest a few dollars in some . that will teach me Spanish (item #3) from our fine list above. Spanish learning software is becoming more prevalent among the internet and computer savvy and helps makes learning more fun by providing videos feeds and recordings of native speakers and allowing you to record your responses and conversations.

Both hearing Native speakers and then repeating to the best of your ability...slowly builds up your vocabulary and increases your effectiveness to communicate directly in the Spanish language. Ok, so..don't expect the software to learn for you. But, it can provide you with an enjoyable means to learn a language. I have always felt that if you can entertain yourself and learn at the same time, you stand a better chance of succeeding and actually accomplishing it. Meet that lofty goal you set out for yourself.

Another tip, not mentioned in the top 10, probably 11.but worthy of metioning is to watch moves with Spanish subtitles. You can do this simply by setting the subtitles to Spanish and is available on most DVD's. This way you can watch the movies you like and see the Spanish translation along with spoken English. Another interesting way to advance you skills.

Although, Item #1 might be the best one., I'm anxious to hit the local Mexican restaurante (item#10) and have myself a delicious Carne Asada Steak and perhaps a cold margarita to celebrate the steps I'm taking to learn Spanish.

Adios!
