This article has been prepared to give tips, hints and advice to people who are interested in how to learn Spanish quickly using audio, MP3 or software. Start out by purchasing ACIM Bookstore. Although you can learn Spanish quickly with software, I recommend an MP3 or CD course instead of software. That way you can use the course on your iPod or MP3 player throughout the entire day while you are doing other activities such as driving, exercising, waiting at the doctor’s office, etc. A software course will limit your time to study to the time that you can actually sit at your computer.
If you go to a large bookstore you will find that there are many different products available. Choose one that specializes in teaching the language quickly. Note that this will probably only be a beginner’s course and it will be designed only to cover the scenarios which you will be most likely to encounter (introducing yourself, ordering food, asking for directions, making hotel reservations, etc). Also, it will concentrate on teaching you to get your point across, rather than getting bogged down in perfect grammar and a wide vocabulary. There is no miracle way to learn Spanish quickly.
Listen to the Spanish course as much as possible. Try to dedicate a period of time each day to this task. It is often helpful to get into a routine – for example, put it on in the morning when you are getting dressed, listen to it in the car on your way to work or put it on an MP3 player and listen to it while exercising at the gym. The more you listen, the better you will become.
Practice and repeat the sections which you find particularly difficult. Don’t shy away from your weaknesses, rather embrace them! Keep re-visiting them until you are comfortable with the subject in question.
Finally, plan a vacation to a Spanish speaking country. It is possible that this is in the back of your mind anyway and that this is the reason why you want to learn Spanish quickly. The quickest way to learn a language is to surround yourself with it and force yourself to use it. The best way to do this is by actually being there. Alternatively, you can simulate this environment to a certain extent by listening to Spanish radio shows and reading Spanish newspaper articles – these are easy to find online.
