So you want to learn Spanish. Now what? So many possibilities, so much to learn, so many ways. You feel already exhausted, before you even started, right?
In this situation the best thing to is set your mind. Get comfortable, grab a hot coffee (Spanish people love coffee) and just observe your upcoming thoughts when reading the following questions:
- Are you an enthusiastic learner, who is disciplined enough to stick to study plans and self-motivation, until you reach your goal? Or are you more of the relaxed type, learning a little whenever possible and even better, if someone pushes you on the way?
- How do you usually learn best and memorize things the easiest way? Just by listening or by writing? Learning things by heart or just learning while doing?
- How hard do you want to go for it? Is it just for fun or do you need to learn Spanish in a certain time frame, e.g. for your job or for travel?
Hold tight to the ideas that you just had and let´s go to the next step:
2) Choose out of many possible ways the best one for you
Some say, to really learn Spanish you have to go to a Spanish-speaking country and practise the language in daily life with natives (which is obviously one of the ways we support the most).
Others say, you can easily learn at home by watching Spanish movies or by using study apps.
Some say, you need a teacher, who can show and explain you things in an understandable and correct way and who can support and motivate you in your learning process (tadaaaa – surprisingly we agree).
Others say, you can perfectly do it on your own, the good old autodidactic way.
Fact is: You are the only one, who knows, what you shall do, because there is plenty of opportunities to learn Spanish.
Local and international Spanish courses, Online classes, Apps, Movies, Tandem partners, books and so on.
