"Walk By Faith, Not By Sight" 2 Corinthians 5:7
Please let me know how you study for Spanish (or for another language!)! I’m really struggling in my Spanish class, though I did well last semester. Any input would be wonderful!
Language acquisition is tough. I am not sure what level of Spanish you are on, but the best method to acquire a new language is full immersion.
That’s kinda hard. I know.
I taught myself Italian. Yawp. It’s doable.
Listen to the music. Get the lyrics and follow along. Eventually you will sing along.
Read newspapers with a notepad and a voice recording device. Read an article and record yourself reading that article. Take your time. Pronounce all the letters and watch for accents.
Write. Use your notes from the newspapers/magazine/instruction manuals… then tell a story. In that language. It will not be perfect. But you will build slowly on what you know.
Speak it. Find a local restaurant or market. Start talking. Period. Most people are so happy and proud that someone wants to learn their language they will be happy to practice with you. Trust me. It works. If you are a regular, even better. Ask them to speak to you only in Spanish from now on… and same with you. You can only speak it to them.
Thank you so much! This is all so helpful! I’m feeling more confident already! Muchas gracias! (:
By the way, that’s really awesome you taught yourself Italian. (:
