Why You Need Lsd to Learn to Speak Fluent Spanish

By: Paul Brown

Everyone wants to learn Spanish the easy way, but we have to be realistic and not delude ourselves to think that motivation and desire are not needed, they are the two things that will keep your discipline and perseverance in check. But the 3 often-overlooked activities of students are that you need to Listen, Speak and Do.

LISTEN - Silence Is Golden

If you want to learn Spanish easily, you have to be able to come in direct contact with Spanish in effective and practical ways such as listening to Spanish and or Latin music. How often do we find ourselves singing along to our favorite songs because we know the words? We are able to remember the lyrics to our favorite songs without memorizing because we hear them over and over again. The same principle of repetition should be applied to Spanish music CDs in order for you to learn Spanish rapidly. There is a lot of excellent Spanish music available--you simply need to choose you favorite Latin, Spanish CD and play it often. Overtime you will be singing along in Spanish. By listening to these CDs you will be able to consciously and subconsciously process Spanish in a way that can contribute to your learning of Spanish. This way is effective because it beats sitting in a boring classroom and you can choose your medium (films, television, music) in which to listen to Spanish. It is practical because we all enjoy music of some kind and even though Spanish music may not be your thing, with your CD player, mp3 or iPod you can listen anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

SPEAK - Hear Me Roar

We all need to express ourselves. Studies show that introverted students, who would avoid interaction with the native speakers, have difficulty in language acquisition and proficiency in comparison to the extroverted students who would take advantage of any opportunity to speak the language. If you are the introvert, then I highly recommend, it is high time for you to blossom. Just the lack of practice will make introverts less likely to learn to speak fluent Spanish. The more often you try to speak Spanish, you will be forcing your brain to process your learning of syntax, semantics, pronunciation, grammar, etc. and to put that information to practical use. So be brave like a lion and go out there and speak Spanish as often as you can because as Hermann Hesse says "everything becomes a little different as soon as it is spoken out loud."

DO - God Helps Those Who Helps Themselves

You must have or find an excellent Spanish course. You need to have a good foundation in order to build on that. You could sign up for one of the many language schools that use the traditional language-teaching techniques, which research has indicated, are extremely inefficient to learn Spanish. Or you could hire a private tutor or learn how to speak Spanish online. Whatever your option, the resources are there for you to choose the right method of learning. Keep in mind that learning Spanish online can be more effective, practical, convenient and affordable than your typical language school and less expensive and resource-rich than a private tutor. But you have to do the lessons, the speaking, the listening, and things to keep you motivated. If you do you will succeed in increasing your Spanish vocabulary and use of words in new contexts, which stimulate a deeper understanding of their meaning.

Finally, if you are given effective learning tools, resources and instruction from your Spanish course and you remember your L.S.D., you will be able to more learn Spanish rapidly, effectively and practically. You will eventually reach your goal and be able to speak Spanish fluently.
