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:

Cheers,

Andrew

I see you've been here a while (3 minutes, 30 seconds, to be precise)!

That must mean you like what you're reading!  You're finding it interesting, useful, helpful!  Oh that's wonderful, there's nothing more rewarding for a writer than knowing their material accomplished its goal of helping someone, of telling them something they didn't know before, of providing them with useful information!

Would you like more of the same? I can help you, Spanish students and teachers!

I have whole series of emails (many series!), lists of the most useful free online resources, and more to help beginning/intermediate Spanish students as well as Spanish teachers (a lot of that information is useful to both for different reasons).  If you'll subscribe to my email list right now I'll immediately send you my list of the Top 10 Free Online Spanish-Learning Resources as well as the first in my "Getting Started Learning Spanish" series, with much more to follow (e.g. my "Learn Spanish for Real" series where I teach idioms and slang from real-life contexts, "Learn Spanish from the News", "Learn Spanish on YouTube", and more!).

Thank you so much for giving me a chance and subscribing to my questionable writings, you'll receive your first two in the next few minutes - Andrew
