Do you want to learn Spanish? If you answered “yes”, you are in the right place! In this article I’m going to answer to the most common questions about this language. Here they are!
1. Is Spanish difficult?
No, it’s one of the easiest languages in the world. If you speak English, Spanish will be way easier for you to learn. Why? Because many English words are very similar to Spanish words and you can easily find out what they mean. What’s more, Spanish has a phonemic orthography and this means that it’s very easy to learn the correct pronunciation. So, there’s nothing to be scared of!
2. How long does it take to learn Spanish?
It depends. If you learn on your own and immerse yourself, it’s possible to become fluent in a year or so. You may even become fluent in a few months, but only if you practice a lot every single day (or move to a Spanish speaking country – this is the most effective way). If you take classes, it can take you even a few years to learn the language.
3. What is the best method to learn Spanish?
It’s simple – start with the basic things like basic grammar, common words, phrases, pronunciation rules and so on. Don’t strive for perfection – just some basic things.
Learn the basic things and then immerse yourself in Spanish – interact with native speakers, watch Spanish movies, listen to the radio, read Spanish websites, articles, books, write to a pen pal, listen to Spanish music and speak as much as you can at every opportunity.
Thanks to this, you will speak Spanish fluently even after a few months. However, you need to practice a lot – you can’t learn a new language quickly if you don’t want to practice at least one or two hours every day.
So, what are you waiting for? Start learning Spanish today! Good luck and have fun!
