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.

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

I just want to learn spanish and i have tried the spanish for dummies and that didn’t work. I am dying to learn spansih please help.
The best way is to get a Hispanic friend. Hang out with her all the time and preferably with her when she’s with a group of people speaking Spanish such as her family or Hispanic friends. I had two Hispanic nannies and I learned more Spanish from them than in school. One of the women was from Peru and we used to visit her niece who had her own family. I learned best when listening to them all talk among each other. The other girl was Colombian and she could explain things to me such as the difference between “mira” and “buscar”. (“Mira” is to get someone to look at something, like “look at that!” and “buscar” means to search, such as “look for my keys”.
