Of all the world’s languages, why learn Spanish?
With Spanish officially spoken in 20+ countries, each with a rich history and culture, often home to mountains, jungle, desert and beaches, why wouldn’t you learn Spanish?!
But what’s the best way to learn Spanish? Certainly the easiest way to learn Spanish is to apply three simple, scientifically-proven learning principles which get things into your long-term memory FAST. Sounds like the best way to us!
The thought of learning an entire language can be a bit overwhelming. Let’s be honest, there are quite a lot of Spanish words. That’s why the easiest way to learn Spanish is to break it down into manageable chunks.
It’s important that these chunks logically build on each other, so that you learn Spanish in a meaningful order - one which gradually introduces more concepts and becomes progressively more complex.
There are various ways to learn Spanish but, just like with maths, you have to nail the basics first. You wouldn’t jump straight into simultaneous equations and the same applies to Spanish.
The best way to learn Spanish is to regularly review what you’ve already covered. That includes vocabulary, pronunciation, listening and grammar - the full works. Why learn Spanish basics only to forget them all as you progress?
And here’s a secret: the real trick to jamming your new language into your long-term memory is to steadily increase intervals of time between each review session. Do this and your second language will soon be second nature.
Of all the learning principles Memrise uses, information recall is probably the most important.
Did you know that the act of recalling information significantly improves the likelihood of that information being transferred to your long-term memory? If you didn’t already, you do now.
While there are many ways to learn Spanish, without doubt the easiest way to learn Spanish quickly is to test yourself.
The real trick is to make sure the tested material is sufficiently difficult to require effort, but with a bit of thought you can probably get it. And if not, receiving feedback with the correct answer means you’ll learn it for next time!
So if you want to learn Spanish fast, retrieval of learnt Spanish words and phrases is what you need to do.
The best way to learn Spanish is to regularly test your listening, speaking, reading and writing, and in no time you’ll be ready to find one of the 400 million native Spanish speakers and practice!
