7 top tips on how to speak Spanish with confidence

2. Practice is everything
Constantly look out for opportunities to test out your Spanish skills. Busuu's Conversations feature, for instance, provides an easy way to practise speaking Spanish and get feedback from with native speakers around the world.
3. Listen well
The more you hear, the more conversational Spanish you’ll absorb. And the easier it will be for you to speak the language with confidence – even as a beginner! One moment, you’ll be picking up new Spanish words, and the next you’ll be stringing together full sentences.
4. Celebrate every success
Consider every occasion you talk to someone in Spanish an achievement. Every single interaction you have, no matter how small, will help you improve your Spanish language skills. Be proud of your progress.
