Tips to learn Spanish for Beginners

Posted · Add Comment

Hola amigos! Which means “Hello friends” in Spanish. Learning a language in one of the most beautiful countries in the world is certainly a rewarding experience. The language is one of the fastest spreading languages in the world and is often listed as among the easiest for English speakers to learn.

Be patient

A lot of people jump the gun and dive right into trying to learning a language too quickly. Take your time and don’t expect to be perfect straight away. Learning a new language should be attempted in small, manageable steps. Congratulate yourself on progress made and try to steer clear of making unrealistic targets.


Immerse yourself in Spanish Literature

Buying a Spanish dictionary would be a good start to introducing yourself to Spanish literature. By attempting to read some Spanish books you can pick up a couple words and phrases that you will need to get to grips with quickly.

Use Flashcards

This method is a great way of using keywords. For people who don’t know what a flash card is, it is a piece of card or small piece of paper with phrases or words written on it so you can refer to it when you need it.


Listen to Audio

Don’t just watch videos about how to learn Spanish. Listen and engage in audio content too like podcasts, a Spanish radio station streaming online or listen to the Spanish in their own country. Take note of a few words and phrases and look them up after. Google translate is a simple online tool to help you access the words you need easily.

Keep It Fun and Interesting

Learning any language takes persistence and practice. If your studies turn into a chore, then you won’t get much out of them. Don’t hesitate to mix up the routine and do something fun to reward your hard work and reignite your passion for Spanish.


Learn Spanish Abroad

Above all and most important is to visit the country that speaks Spanish fluently. You get to experience a whole new culture, explore new towns and cities, meet new people and possibly make new friends. You won’t be alone as there will be others learning Spanish with you. Make it an experience to remember.
