Picture 0 for How to learn to speak Spanish?

When we want to learn to speak Spanish or any other foreign language, it´s important to understand that the best way to do it is through listening. Even those people who have been for many years learning Spanish find some difficulties with listening.

Most of the traditional ways to learn Spanish are based on books, verb lists, and pictures.  They are very helpful if you want to master the grammar, but if you really want to converse in Spanish fluently with a native speaker, the best way to achieve it is by listening to it. This rule is as simple as it is important.  The more you listen to Spanish, the more vocabulary you will learn and the better your pronunciation will be. 

It´s very important for you to be honest with yourself and make sure that you have learnt the lesson well before you proceed to the next one. You must have this in mind because many learning methods are so fast that you do not have enough time to assimilate what you have learnt.

There are many different ways to learn how to speak in Spanish for free at home through the Internet.  If you want to improve your pronunciation, for instance, here are some of the most popular ways to do it:

Listening to Spanish songs

If you love music, that would be a great way to practice Spanish with your favourite vocal group.  Search for the lyrics, read them while you are listening to the song and try to sing along with it. At first, it will be difficult and there will be many words you won´t be able to understand, but little by little you will improve and will finally understand your favourite group’s songs.

Watch films in their original version.

First, you can do it with English subtitles, then with Spanish subtitles, and finally without subtitles.  Initially, it will be difficult for you to understand the film, but don´t worry, it´s normal.  Just do it and little by little you will get used to the sounds of Spanish and you will improve your listening and also your speaking abilities.

Think in Spanish

This is a successful* method.  Think in Spanish as often as you can - while you are in the bus, while you are cooking, while you are watering plants.  Say in Spanish what you've learnt the past days.  With these, you will surely improve your knowledge of Spanish.

And of course, practice speaking Spanish with native speakers!
