Next Steps in Spanish

Next Steps in Spanish:

After the first step on this Easiest Foreign Languages web site enables you to read and pronounce thousands of Spanish words similar to English, what should your next steps be?

For adult beginners, reading Spanish is easiest.

Second Step: READING MORE SPANISH. Because English and Easiest Spanish share many words that look alike in print, the easiest ability for you to continue to develop will be reading more in Spanish. You can read at your own pace, unlike being forced to keep up when trying to listen.

Reading Spanish will be helpful if you travel. You will find that reading some Spanish will help enable you to read your way around Spain or Latin America, for example, because finding your way depends so much on reading, even more than speaking and listening.

Third Step: LISTENING. Listening to understand spoken Spanish is more difficult than reading and will develop much more slowly, because the sounds of Spanish differ greatly from English -- and foreigners seem to speak so fast. However, listening to instructional audio as a second step is a good way to begin learning to understand all those Spanish sounds.

Fourth Step: SPEAKING. Speaking Spanish is more difficult to learn than reading or listening. The pronunciation patterns of Spanish are different than the ones you are used to in English. Even many of the Spanish words spelled identically to English ones are pronounced differently.

Fifth Step: Writing Spanish. The most complex skill, writing will develop last, as it does in your native language.
