Project Description

10 STEPS TO MASTERING SPANISH IN 3-6 MONTHS

As a beginner, if you are looking to become a confident Spanish speaker within the next few months, here is my 10-step guide to achieving that goal.

Decide how long you will devote to your course of study. Three to six months of this program should be plenty - Research shows that those who set a deadline for achievement, and work at something full-on during that period, are way more successful than those who take the laid-back, "one day..." approach.

1. Take a notebook - 200 pages will do, 400 if your writing is large.

2. Get a dictionary or find an online one you like. You will also need a basic grammar reference book.

3. Take a teach-yourself style Spanish course, 8-10 hours max. This is just to get the basics down and to enable you to begin the next phase...

4. Start reading, listening to Spanish. Level 1, 2 stories, kids materials, easy podcasts/videos etc. and/or best of all real people. As you advance, stick to subjects that you are interested in rather than any stuff that happens to be in Spanish - just make sure the material is broadly understandable.

5. With the help of your dictionary etc. fill a page a day with new words, verb patterns, structures and expressions, written down in the same context you heard them. (Write phrases, not words)

6. Write the translations down the other side of the page.

7. Repeat these phrases, out loud, many, many times until semi memorised and flowing off the tongue.

8. Test yourself by covering the Spanish column and translating the English phrases back into Spanish.

9. Repeat 8. until perfect and fluid.

10. Listen to Spanish all the time, even as background noise. Expose yourself to hundreds of hours of the spoken language. Listen out for the language that's already in your notebook. Keep filling the notebook. Make an effort to use these phrases in real life, in your conversations.When notebook is full and memorised, you are well on your way to mastering the language.

BEST OF LUCK!
