It is quite challenging to learn a foreign language especially if you are not surrounded by people who speak the language. It requires many hours of dedication to reach your goal. There is no saying to how many months you will require to learn Spanish hence do not be fooled by anyone who says it took them only a few months to learn a completely different language. Spanish is a beautiful language that is spoken by over five hundred million people in the world. Spanish and English have some similarities due to their past. There are a few ways you can learn Spanish simply without any help.
You learned how to speak English by learning all the alphabets which is what you should do when it comes to Spanish. The only variation in Spanish and English alphabets is the pronunciation. This is the biggest challenge you would come across because you are not used to different sounds other than those in English. Understanding the alphabets makes it easier for you to read words then sentences. It is important to understand the rules that Spanish follows to prevent errors when talking. Once you understand the alphabets learn the numbers too. This will be easy to learn since you already understand numbers in English which are not so different in Spanish.
When learning a foreign language, it is essential for you to keep memorizing the few words you learn every day. More words mean that you can easily begin to fluently speak Spanish. Set a target of the number of words you should learn every day and memorize them till you are comfortable enough to use them in a sentence correctly. You can make your learning easier by choosing words that have similar pronunciation with English. Have a notebook at hand so that you can write down words you hear from Spanish speaking people and look up the meaning when you are free.
Another way you can learn Spanish easily is by watching your television in Spanish. This way, you are able to pick up different vocabulary especially if they have Spanish subtitles. This will help you pick up a few words and phrases as you try to read them on your screen. Additionally, you can change the language on your phone to be in Spanish. This will be quite a rough experience on the very first days since you will come across unfamiliar words which you will have to compare them to English to know what they mean.
