Tips to learn Spanish faster

Go live in a Spanish speaking country

Go live in a Spanish-speaking country,and talk as much as you can. My father moved to South America when he was in his twenties, and although he never took Spanish lessons in his life, he has a good command of the language. His secret? He bought a dictionary, went to relax on a Colombian beach and learned from people interested in this gringo (this stranger) the meaning and pronunciation of words, with the help of hand gestures to better understand each other.

Find a spanish partner

But for good! If ever the person of your love speaks the language you are learning, then it can help you master it faster. You can also find a Spanish-speaking friend, which will lead to more or less the same result, but as Spanish culture is particularly passionate, a romantic background will simply allow you to learn it more quickly.

Practice allows you to speak perfectly. And do not be ashamed! To be wrong is inevitable, even in your mother tongue, you started making mistakes. So talk to a taxi driver, the waiter – anyone – in a Spanish-speaking country, preferably, to practice the fairest way, every day. Stuck in your home country? Try to teach your dog some orders in Spanish; having a grown dog has never hurt anyone!

Do not write a single word such as “taco”. It would not be very productive. Instead, write phrases such as “this taco is delicious” or “this taco costs a dollar”. The sentences will make you progress far more than just words, so you can learn even more new words and grammar rules.

Be coherent

Regardless of how you decide to approach your Spanish studies, think about establishing a program and respecting it. If your goal is to study at least an hour a day, well do it! As with exercises, do not expect to get any significant results after only three hours of intensive work in the first week. You will see real progress in working over a long period of time, not at one time.

Remember that every little effort counts!
