How to learn Spanish quickly, what a difficult question.
The truth is learning Spanish quickly is a dream for most people which they won’t ever attain. The reason being is that if you ever want to learn quickly you need to be really consistent. You need to work hard, read the books, study and most importantly, speak Spanish.
That’s the problem most people have when they try to learn a new language. They spend 95% of their time reading and writing in Spanish, most of the time just reading. The problem is reading will never teach you how to speak fluent Spanish.
If you want to speak fluent Spanish or just get by with some conversational language, you need to be speaking Spanish on a daily basis. There is just no way around it. So how do you learn Spanish quickly?
Well, first you need to start with the basics. Start with basic Spanish words and conversational Spanish. You need to read it, study the books and then speak it. Rehearse it with a fluent Spanish speaker and get the accent right.
Never move ahead and learn new words until you have mastered speaking the words you already know. So what’s the secret to fast Spanish learning?
Well… Going to Spain!
What else? The only realistic way to learn Spanish quickly is to get on a plane and head out to Spain. If you really want to learn quickly, you need to use Spanish on a daily basis. You need to go to restaurants and cafes in Spain and practice your Spanish with real Spanish locals.
I personally went to Spain for the period of 2 years. Over those years I learnt more Spanish than the previous 10 years living in the UK. The point is that the only way to learn Spanish quickly is to experience living in Spain in first person.
There are plenty of cafes to lounge around in while you listen to the locals swapping stories, telling jokes and enjoying the lazy Spanish afternoon. You’d be surprised how much Spanish you learn in just a few days being in the country. You’d also be surprised how cheaply you can get out there for a weekend or even a few weeks.
When I first fell in love with the language I actually moved in with a Spanish family for a few weeks. Anyway, the best way to learn Spanish quickly is to get out there and live. Your only other option is to get online and start a course.
