Default Learning a 2nd Language, Spanish

Been looking into possibly learning Spanish. I know I need to start small and submerse myself in the language. But seeing if anybody else has done this and what programs if any to get started and any advice.

Check out the FREE app called "Duolingo" works great and makes learning pretty easy. I need to get back on myself.

https://www.duolingo.com/


Have everyone in your family download it and make learning it a game of sorts...speak to each other in Spanish, learn together

I had four years of it, but it doesn’t appear to be the same as what I hear the majority of those speaking who were born in SA or Spain. There appears to be differences the further south one travels in South America. It sure doesn’t hurt to know a gorgeous mujer who speaks it fluently.

I had an internship in a shop where the main language was Spanish and the main music was tejano. AggieRod speaks the truth. At least you'll know when people are mad at you.

Without subtitles works too. You will need a more structured program to learn conjugation.

20 years ago I was going to learn it.
Bought the Rosetta Stone CDs to listen to in my truck. That alone with talking to the Mexicans at work was doing pretty good.
I lost interest before I knew it well enough to stick and never tried again.

What I and most Texas raised Hispanics speak is not a genuine form of Spanish.

I/we speak Tex Mex. It's enough to sometimes get me by but also enough to get me in trouble.

You can check out https://preply.com/en/skype/tutors

I started using Preply last year and so far it's been a good experience
I'm currently improving my French and Spanish language skills via this platform.

One thing that stands out for me is the awesome customer support which is available 24/7.

Hope this helps!

I used that duo lingo off and on for a couple years. My problem is I go too much time between “lessons” so I keep having to repeat things I forget.

I took two years of Spanish in high school up north. Never though I would ever use it. Moved to Texas back in '85 and eventually married a Mexican gal that didn't speak any English in '98. Talk about being immersed! She is now a bilingual teachers aid this year in Waller ISD!

I was once fluent in shop spanish. About 75% of it was just english spoke with a bad attempt at a mexican accent and the other 25% were cuss words.
