Learn Spanish Online: HOW TO SPEAK SPANISH ONLINE

Picture 0 for HOW TO SPEAK SPANISH ONLINE

If you want to speak Spanish Online, the best way to achieve it is by practicing how to speak it. However, that is very difficult for most students to achieve because it is not given enough importance.

You must be able to identify the sounds of Spanish words to learn this language correctly. To know the correct pronunciation of each word is as important as knowing how it sounds within a sentence.

Phonemes are very important to distinguish meanings. For instance, “pack” and “park” are two different words, but whose pronunciations are similar. However, we are able to distinguish them because each one has a different phoneme (/æ/ and /ɑ /)

One of the advantages for English speakers who want to learn Spanish is that this language only has 22 phonemes, of which 5 are vowels.  On the other hand, English has 44 phonemes, of which 20 are vowels.

When we are learning a foreign language, it is normal to emphasize the grammar aspect because it is easier to teach. For this reason, the pronunciation is not given enough importance and so it becomes more difficult to learn most of the time.

Also, most students experience stage fright when speaking in Spanish because they think they are going to make a fool of themselves.  It is therefore important to practice Spanish with native speakers.  Thanks to the Internet, it is easy nowadays for you to chat in Spanish with native Spanish speakers through a language exchange setup and learn how to speak Spanish at home.

 

By doing this language exchange, you will be able to practice your Spanish with a pen pal and you will be helping him/her with his/her English.

You both can spend half the time speaking in English and the other half, speaking in Spanish or, if you’d prefer, just speak in Spanish and your pen pal speaks in English.  Either way, both of you will improve a lot.

A language exchange has many advantages: you can share your experiences and interests with your online pen pal and in that way you will get to practice your Spanish as you meet friends online.  It will also help you overcome your fear in expressing yourself because your online pal will help you correct your pronunciation. You will learn Spanish in a fun, easy, and entertaining way. You will also meet people from all over the world and learn how to speak Spanish as native speakers do.
