Spanish course study tips



IMPORTANT SPANISH STUDY TIP
Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Your first objective is to communicate in Spanish, not to speak perfect Spanish. Not many people in Spain speak English or any other languages, so they will definately not report you to the Language Police just because you make a few grammatical or pronunciation mistakes in Spanish. On the contrary, they will love you for trying to speak Spanish and probably help you improve.

 

SMALL SPANISH STUDY TIP:
Find some Spanish jokes on the net and tell them to friends! Even bad ones! This will make speaking Spanish more fun and teach you some useful everyday Spanish words and phrases.

Spanish joke:

Es un hombre que va a una entrevista de trabajo y despues de varias
preguntas le dicen: ¿Y usted habla ingles?
Y el hombre contesta: Oui oui!
Entonces el entrevistador le dice: ¡Pero oiga! Que eso es frances!
Y el que esta buscando el trabajo le dice:
Sí? Pues entonces apunte tambien frances!


IMPORTANT SPANISH STUDY TIP:
Have fun learning spanish. Enjoy it. It is not a race so don't worry if others in your class seem to be better at learning. Everyone has a different learning curve. The main thing is to remember that you are learning something new every day.



SMALL SPANISH STUDY TIP:
Find the lyrics to popular Spanish songs that you are hearing in the clubs and on the radio. You can usually find these on the internet. Try www.lyrics.com or simply type the title into google.com and write "lyrics." If you don't know the title of a song ask a bartender or DJ in a club or pub. Knowing song lyrics is fun and at least you will learn some love songs in Spanish!




IMPORTANT SPANISH STUDY TIP:
Get into a routine. It's all about habits. The biggest secret of learning Spanish or another language is getting into the habit of attending classes as much as possible and on a regular basis. Even if you are tired, try and make it to the school. There is nothing more motivating than turning up. And missing classes is the most demotivating thing. You will feel that you are falling behind the other and also wasting money that you spent for missed classes. Which you are. So try and get to the classes. .Make time on a regular basis for your language learning. Homework is also best handled by getting into a fixed routine. Do it on the train. Or at a certain time every day. Or meet with others in the class to revise at a fixed time every day.



SMALL SPANISH STUDY TIP:
Put post-it notes up at home with Spanish words and phrases that you want to remember. Put them in places where you won't miss them. Then repeat the words again and again until you remember them.



IMPORTANT SPANISH STUDY TIP:
Learning Spanish requires an effort from you. 2 or 4 hours a day learning Spanish does not sound very hard, but it can be just as hard as a half-day job. And then add on some homework everyday too. It's tough. The pace is high at most schools and the classes are usually "immersion" which means that books and teaching is in Spanish. So you have to be mentally prepared to put in the time, interest and effort and to sustain that effort.

SMALL SPANISH STUDY TIP:
Talk while you are studying. You double your efficiency of your learning ability if you say the words while reading them. Keep the volume down though if you are in a very public place!

IMPORTANT SPANISH STUDY TIP:
Use a dictionary. If you think that you can guess all the meanings of Spanish words you are wrong. For example the spanish word "embarazada" means "embarrassed" in English. Well you are wrong. It means "pregnant!"
A good online dictionary that we have found for Spanish-English translation is http://wordreference.com/
