4. Build your own phrasebook
When you’re learning, there are a few common questions you’ll be asked regularly: Where are you from? What is your name? What do you do for work? How long have you been learning Spanish? Memorising these answers will give you a big confidence boost and keep the conversation going.
5. Stick to one Spanish variety
Twenty-two countries over four continents list Spanish as an official language. With slight differences, for instance, between the Spanish spoken in Latin America and the Spanish spoken in Spain, it can be overwhelming for Spanish learners. To avoid confusion, we recommend focusing on learning one.
6. Sing along
Singing is an extremely powerful aid for language learners. Whether you’re into rock, pop or jazz, find some Spanish songs you love and sing your heart out. If you’re not familiar with Spanish artists, we’ve put together a handy playlist of Spanish songs for learners.
7. Exercise your brain
Not only can exercise boost your brain function and memory, it’s the perfect time to fit Spanish into your routine. Listen to a Spanish podcast on a walk, or play Spanish music at the gym and reap the benefits of both.
