3. Learn practical phrases that help you in everyday life. Find a program that will teach you how to integrate the language into your life. All the conjugated verbs in the world won’t help you unless you can pair those verbs with other words.
4. Watch television and movies with Spanish subtitles. Find the movies you are familiar with in Spanish voice-over. You know what’s happening in the movie so you can listen to what they are saying.

7. Flashcards can be a help in learning words without the backup of a translation. Go through them quickly and out of order.

9. Join a learning community to practice your Spanish. With online video chats, you can find many people who want to help others learn. You can return the favor by helping them learn your language.
10. Complete immersion is by far the most effective way to learn Spanish. Being thrown into a community where you have to learn to communicate is an excellent method. The more you hear Spanish and speak it yourself, the faster you will pick it up.
