How to learn Spanish Fast
updated may 2022
There are many ways to learn Spanish but here i will show you how I learned Spanish and what i think is the fastest way you can learn.
If you live in a new country and you dont speak that language then you will struggle and miss out in so many ways. Each year thousands of Brits move to Spain but 90% dont learn to Speak more than several words of Spanish. They all say they will learn but in reality its a little harder than you think.
We all learn at different speeds and in different ways so what is easy for one person may not be right for you.
Dont struggle learning Spanish
How I learned Spanish.
When i first moved to Spain i started lessons at a language school here 3 nights a week but after just 2 weeks i just found it to slow and hard to take in.
I wanted to learn fast in months not years. learning all the verbs takes years but i just wanted to learn enough to speak to people and practice what i know and improve on that.
Courses, videos and mobile apps, i tried the lot and was still not really able to have a conversation in Spanish.
Then I saw an advert for a walking club near where i lived and at that time i was on my own here then and decided to join the club even though it was a Spanish walking club and i was the only English speaker there. I though it would make me learn as i know nobody what did it matter if people didnt speak to me or the whole thing was a mistake or i made a fool of myself.
Each week the club went out in different areas and always stopped off mid way for a drink in some bar or cafe where we would all chat. At first it was strange as i really didnt understand anyone but they all were very friendly and helped me.
After about 3 months i started to know many of the walkers who were all different ages and made new friends and got invited to new places to meet even more new people and thats how my circle of friends grow fast.
By going to places where people only spoke Spanish i was forced to speak Spanish and picked up basic phrases at first then more and more new words. The basic conversation phrases started to grow into being able to ask questions to people about there lives and works and this is how i built up my Spanish vocabulary, plus i was practising what i learned every week.
