It is crucial to be patient. Do not take up a course that offers to teach the language in a very short time. It is advisable to attempt the learning process at a manageable pace. You should not expect yourself to speak the language after a few weeks.
Attend a course that offers at least three tuitions every week. One class in a week is not adequate for a beginner.
Review your Lessons
It is important to devote some time in self-learning after every Spanish class. Just as it is important to revise your school lessons, it is essential to go through whatever you learn during your Spanish classes.
A very effectual way to learn speaking Spanish is to practice conversation with other students enrolled for the lessons. If you cannot meet them, you may call them up sometimes and converse in Spanish.
Go through the written work taught in class. Read a paragraph from your Spanish books, everyday.
Expose yourself to Spanish
If you have Spanish acquaintances, speak to them in Spanish. Try to catch their accents and key phrases. If this is not possible, listen to Spanish programmes on the radio or watch Spanish news and movies on TV.
When your reading skills improve, read Spanish newspapers to improve your vocabulary. The material in Spanish newspapers will offer practical knowledge of the language.
Make Flash Cards
Your instructor at Spanish Classes will introduce you to new key words or phrases every lesson. Make your own flash cards with these words and use them diligently for reference everyday. A flash card is particularly effective for difficult to remember words.
