September 1, 2009 by · 2 Comments 

There are loads of Spanish Courses and Schools I have covered yet a lot do not have the budget for it. Today I will cover how to learn to speak Spanish for free. I have added 6 top sites that have a focus on learning Spanish language for free.

1) BBC – Learn Spanish for Free Course
BBC Learn Spanish Course offers a wide range video and audio courses of over 30 different languages. It has a variety of course options. Its very basic, but a nice way to learn to speak basic Spanish for free. Aside from that I really recommend reading the news in Spanish from there, or watching Spanish broadcasts.

2) Massachusetts Institute of Technology – Learning Spanish Language Open Course
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers a wide range of its courses online, including its language courses! I can recommend the literature material to supplement your studying. MIT is a front runner on opening up its courses to the main public and I hope this trend will be followed by other leading universities.

3) My Happy Planet – Learning Spanish Through Exchange
My Happy Planet is mainly a language exchange site, but site users have uploaded a bunch of Spanish Lessons you can use. It is fairly active. After signing up it was very easy to find language exchange partners, it has quite a large database.

4) The Open University – Learn Spanish Free Course
Great Spanish course content can be found there.

5) Livemocha – Free Spanish Language Learning Through Exchange
Again a great Free Site that has loads of free Spanish material. Beware though they are commercial and will give a lot of buying options.

6) Learning Spanish Language – learn to speak Spanish for free Course

I hope these 6 sites will get you started and give you the option of learning the Spanish language for free. Don’t just sit there, and start learning Spanish right now!

I was recently asked by a student to give a critical Rocket Spanish Review. Aside from learning the Spanish Language through immersion one could also learn Spanish from home. After searching around a bit online I concluded that it is one of the main Spanish products pushed on the internet. However 9 out of 10 reviews on it seem to be solely made in order to sell the product, I even doubt that the reviews are made by actual former Spanish students. Leaving all the eccentric ads that can be found online about Rocket Spanish aside, below is my objective review on learning Spanish by using the Rocket Software

Firstly some critiques:

- The “promotional offer” (100$, instead of $300) always stands. So don’t worry about hurrying up and buying the project right away.
- The whole flash card games etc. offered by Rocket Spanish are not really that sophisticated. Still I admit its a nice tool.
- If you are already pretty advanced in Spanish, Rocket Spanish wont leap you forward in great steps. It seems to be focused more on the beginning Spanish learner.

Now for the plus points:

- The free online Spanish course that they are offering actually gives a good insight on beginners Spanish and I certainly can recommend it.
- They have a 90 day return policy and after my mystery purchase for this review I can confirm that the policy is enforced without any problems.
- The recordings are crystal clear
- The conversations are based on realistic settings (unlike the Rosetta stone course for example)
- Part 1 of Rocket Spanish is great for beginning Spanish learners

I am passionate about people learning the Spanish Language and I hope that by discussing different options more will start learning the Spanish language. I hope that my Rocket Spanish review was helpful for you. You will be surprised how awarding it is once you have mastered the Spanish Language.

Some manage to learn a great deal through reading, others might need more visual aid and then again others learn great through audio. By figuring this out you can determine whether you need a higher emphasis on books, software or mp3′s for example.

Tip 3) Estimate what your maximum budget is over a certain time frame. After you set this make sure to follow your budget. Can you afford to have 1 on 1 private classes? Can you afford a full course at a Spanish Language Immersion school? Some rather are not willing to spend a lot and would prefer to use free materials and Learn Spanish at Home courses. Research and find out what the costs are and try to make a suitable arrangement.

Tip 4) Do not procrastinate. Once you set a time-plan and resources, stick to it for at least a couple of weeks. Then evaluate your progress and make modifications on your following month if needed. maybe within that month you have learned what you intended to.

Tip 5) What are your main Goals regarding Spanish fluency? Do you want to learn Conversational Spanish that will help you through your travels and basic talks. Is your wish to become fluent being able to converse on deeper subjects and topics (e.g. business Spanish) ?

Tip 6) Start by finding some Spanish movies with English subtitles and the other way around. Watch some of your fav6orite movies in Spanish. This to start getting the feel of the Spanish Language and accent. Really start living in a Spanish environment.

Thinking of going on a Spanish course in Chile, thoughts?

November 18, 2008 by · 13 Comments 

Question asked by Spanish Student:

I’m thinking of traveling to Chile for a 2-week language course to learn Spanish, in summer 2009. The course includes a 2-day excursion to a ski resort high in the mountains above Santiago.

Just wondering if anybody has done anything like this, or would recommend it and why?
Spanish is a language I would like to learn to a conversational level, and I have always wanted to visit South America, and understand that Chile is one of the more safe and stable countries.
Thanks.

Answer By Spanish Language Teacher:
Definitely do it!! On of the best ways to learn another language is to immerse yourself in a place where they speak it. Also you’ll get to know the culture better and gain an awesome experience. You will not be disappointed

How difficult is it to learn Portuguese from Spanish?

November 18, 2008 by · 3 Comments 

I wish to learn Portuguese, but the University I am attending only offers Spanish. I have elected to learn Spanish, but was wondering about the extent to which my knowledge of Spanish will be transferrable to Portuguese?

If it helps, I'm pretty good at learning languages.

Knowledge of Spanish makes learning Portuguese alot easier, that's for sure. So it will be easy, especially if you're good at learning languages.

Here's a podcast for Spanish speakers wanting to learn Portuguese (Specifically Braz. Port)
