top ten spanish learning recommendations
Mastering another language is an excellent skill to add to your resume. In the usa the Spanish
language is the 2nd most widespread language . No matter how you feel regarding the
prevalence of the Spanish language; learning to speak and understand it is an an important asset.
Numerous jobs search for or even require bilingual individuals. Don't get left in the dark, pick up a
Spanish lesson e-book and begin your journey.
Learning a 2nd language
There are various ways to begin learning a a 2nd language, Spanish being not an exception.
Regardless of whether you use language learning computer softwares, direct tutoring or taking
classes, learning to speak and understand Spanish doesn't happen overnight. As the old saying
goes "Rome wasn't built in a day." Keep practicing and keep learning and you'll grow every day.
Before you realize it you'll be speaking Spanish just like a native . A few things to remember when
learning a new language are:
Studying a new language can be frustrating. Sometimes you get to a point where it doesn't seem
like you're making any progress and simply going in circles. When this happens take a step back
and walk away. Your brain can absorb information better than you may think but it'll take some
time for it to sink in.
2.Practice makes the master
As with every skill you want to master, you need to practice and then practice some more.
Repetition is the way we learn and by practicing you slowly begin to recognize specific things
within the language. No matter whether it's how some words are pronounced or certain phrases.
By continuing to practice you slowly forge ahead.
3.Use learning aids
In school when you wanted to learn a given subject you probably used things like visual
aids,flashcards, and so on. in order to remember that topic. Now that you are out of school that
doesn't mean that you can't go back and use these techniques to help you learn Spanish. Making
use of these tools provides you a different viewpoint to learning Spanish from providing a better
comprehension of the vocabulary, sentence structure, etc. to offering you an all-around better
grasp of the the Spanish language.
No-one learns something new in a flash. Even though some may be better at learning certain
things than others that doesn't mean those that aren't can't do it won't eventually be just as good.
Making mistakes is a great thing. When you make a mistake, you learn from it and grow from that.
The same thing applies when learning Spanish. You learn to pronounce and make sentences by
failing the first few times. Before you realize it you won't be making the same mistakes and you'll
improve your 2nd language.
5.Work with someone
The most effective way to learn Spanish is to speak it. Working with a native speaker will help you
learn proper pronunciation and sentence structure but also give you someone to practice with.
Before you realize it you'll be having whole discussions with someone and debating on many
topics. This also helps you learn to hear certain words as well.
6.Keep the Spanish language close to your ear
As much as speaking Spanish is very important so is knowing what someone else is saying.
Hearing the Spanish language will not only help you to speak it yourself but to know how certain
words are to be used. If you can't understand what someone else is saying in Spanish then
speaking it won't help you any.
7.Slow but steady
Take your time with Spanish. Don't forget, it's not a race. While most of us want to spend the
shortest amount of time learning a new skill it won't help anyone if you don't learn it properly.
Everyone learns at a different speed. Find what paces works for you and stick with it. While you
learn more and more you will improve your pace until you have a complete understanding of the
8.Say everything out loud
Whether you're reading a word or sentence say it out loud. Reading the word and understanding
it's different than saying it. By saying it out loud you activate several parts of your brain causing
greater retention. Besides that this will help you when it comes time to speak the language and
hold a conversation with someone.
9.Label everyday items
Human beings by nature are visual animals. A brilliant way to to help learn the words for day by
day things is to label them in Spanish. While it may seem ridiculous at first, after seeing the word
associated with a certain object you'll begin to connect the two. In no time you'll be able to
describe everything in your home entirely in Spanish.
10.Start out with what you know in Spanish
Having grown up in america everyone has had a small exposure to Spanish. Whether it was from
Sesame Street or Dora the Explorer even small children are exposed to Spanish. Begin with what
you know in Spanish. For instance, sí is yes in Spanish. No matter who or what you are I bet
you've heard that word at least once in your life. By starting with what you know it lets you see on
what you need to work on and what you might already have memorized.
