Short post, just wanted to show you guys this video I came across, it’s only about 5 minutes but there’s a lot of insights and useful info there, I’d like to especially point out to you how much he emphasizes how important speaking is when it comes to learning a language.  I’ve banged on about this, I know, but most people just don’t do it, primarily because they’re afraid to–they’re afraid of embarrassing themselves or feeling stupid, they’re afraid of failure, and it’s just silly, it’s not something you should be worried about.  Not only that, but it’s really impossible to learn a language without speaking it with native speakers.  Have a look:

A quick note before we finish up: if you’re interested in teaching yourself Spanish…

I have a short post and video (that are free to read and view of course, won’t cost you more than a few minutes of your time) on how to do precisely that with the system that I put together which allowed me to become fluent in Spanish in just 6 months after years of trial-and-error by watching Spanish-language TV shows (like telenovelas, hence the name of the system) and movies, reading Spanish books and comics, and listening to Spanish music. If this sounds interesting to you, check it out by clicking the link below (the following link should open in a new tab or window for you when you click it so I’m not asking you to leave this article here):

“The Telenovela Method of Learning Spanish” (a “telenovela” is a Spanish-language soap opera, they’re what I initially used to teach myself Spanish!)

I also include some quick and valuable tips for learning Spanish as well as a couple of the most useful free Spanish-learning websites that I recommend.

Cheers,

Andrew
