If you like Enrique Iglesias’ and Gloria Estefan’s songs, you’ll even like their Spanish offerings if you know what the lyrics mean. The good news is that you don’t have to fly to Buenos Aires or join a Hispanic gang in Los Angeles to learn the language.
You can learn Spanish in rapid time without paying any tutor a fortune or without attending classes at University of Salamanca. Spanish language comprehension and conversational Spanish can be acquired and practiced without hurting your pocket.
Just look for any expertly-designed language learning program. You’ll find out that learning the language of Don Quixote or the meanings of some place names in the United States (Los Angeles, Sacramento, Colorado) can be fun. And you can soon sing Ricky Martin’s Spanish songs too.
Learning a language the way it is taught at schools – parts of speech, conjugation of verbs, figures of speech, vocabulary building – can be a drag. The fact is that anyone who lives in any community that speaks a different tongue will eventually learn to speak the language fluently even without formal lessons. So how is that possible?
That’s what experts have in mind when they designed the new language acquisition methodology for people on the go. With constant oral practice, guided by the lessons contained in the language courses, you’ll be speaking like a Mexican boxer or Flamenco dancer, conversing with Spanish speakers in no time.
These courses are not hard to find. In fact, a great number of these resources can be found on the internet. What can be difficult is choosing which course to take.
So how do you choose the best language instruction? The search engine is a reliable guide. It can show you expert reviews of and user feedbacks on some language learning courses. Then you find an online vendor where you can download the course of your choice from.
The Talking Book Store offers top-grossing Spanish audio courses used worldwide. A good example is the ‘Unabridged 40-Minute Latin American Spanish,’ produced by HarperCollins Publishers and costs $ 7 per download. (You can also find here a complete list of the other foreign languages that you may want to learn.)
As easy as downloading it is the ease you will have in learning the language itself. You will not have a complicated progress in achieving your goal because everything can be learned with the help of your handy audio file player (iPod, smart phone, pocket computer or disk player). You can listen to the program while doing the laundry, gardening, commuting to and from work, and soaking in the tub.
Now here’s another tip: if you really want to learn Spanish the rapid way, you have to practice speaking it as often as you can. Better yet, make it your secondary language at home. Constant practice makes perfect.
