If you are visiting the Spanish To Move page, you are surely interested in learning Spanish or improving your skills. That's why we are going to try to answer your questions while explaining to you how our method works.
1. Read the PDF guide
The first thing you should do is read the PDF guide. Don't try to study or memorize it. Just read the document to get an idea of the meaning of the lesson. In case you are a beginner, we offer you a complete English translation of the Elementary, Basic, and Travel courses. The PDF guide also includes useful grammatical clues that will help you to better understand what you are studying.
2. Listen to the audio lesson
After reading the PDF guide, the next thing you should do is listen to the audio of each lesson several times to familiarize yourself with the sounds and the rhythm of Spanish pronunciation. Listen to the audio lessons as many times as possible. We suggest between five and ten times a day. Remember that when you listen repeatedly to the same information, you create in your mind subconscious patterns of vocabulary and grammar.
3. Listen and read at the same time
The next step is to listen to the audio while you read the transcript. You can do this through our videos with synchronized audio and text. This will help you reinforce your knowledge by associating the sounds of Spanish with the written words. Furthermore, the videos will help you learn to read and write in an easier and more natural way. Reading and listening simultaneously is a great way to improve your Spanish comprehension. This is especially useful when you are listening to new material of a certain difficulty.
Finally, don't forget to speak Spanish. You can practice by repeating out loud what you hear and by answering the questions that you will find in every lesson. In this way, you will develop the ability to articulate and respond immediately.
Remember: "Practice makes perfect," so if you want to speak Spanish fluently, you must repeat this process time and time again. Practice each lesson as much as you can. We suggest at least ten times each lesson, and the same lesson three to five times during the next two weeks, so that you can hear and understand the practice words in different contexts. When you completely understand the meaning of the lesson and pronounce the words correctly, go on to the next lesson.
How soon will you be able to speak Spanish?
Your results will depend on a variety of factors, such as study time per day, your current level of Spanish, your motivation, etc. Nevertheless, if you follow this method, you will be able to speak Spanish with relative fluency in daily conversation within four to six months. And don't forget to reinforce your knowledge with one or two Spanish classes a week with a native teacher.
