In today’s fast-paced and evolving world, education is more important than ever. Rapid communication, fast, cheap transport and the trend toward globalization have increased the need to speak more than one language.
For most North Americans the obvious second language of choice is Spanish. There are 42 million Hispanics in the U.S., almost all of these speak Spanish and 17 million of them either do not speak English at all or do not speak it very well. In many of the larger U.S. States one fifth to one third of our neighbors are Hispanic.
Spanish is the language with the largest number of native speakers in the Americas. It is widely used and understood in Europe. Also, with its Latin roots it is an easy language for English-speakers to learn.
O.K. So if you want to learn to Speak Spanish, how do you go about it?
There are many alternatives, language schools, university or city college courses, spend some time in a Latin American country and take lessons there… But the best and fastest way is to get a good interactive audio learning course. Many are available on digital media, which is the best format to have.
The reasons that an interactive audio learning course on digital media is the best way to learn are:
1. Portability. You can download the course to your computer and use it from there. You can also offload to your iPod or similar device, or burn CD’s of the course and listen to them on any CD player. This means you can listen to them in your car, any portable player, anywhere.
2. Time flexibility. You choose the hours, the time, how many times and what parts to repeat. You set your own learning speed, fast, slow, spasmodic or whatever, depending on your personal tastes and time constraints.
3. Quality of accent. With a good course you know you are hearing and learning to imitate native speakers, with flawless accents. This is important. (Ever listened to an oriental, who learned English from other orientals, speak English?) You want to learn it right the first time! And be able to go back and review whenever you want.
4. Cost. A good learning course can be found for anywhere from $100 to $500. That’s a one-time fee and you own the course. You can use it, review it at any time and let family members learn too. You won’t likely find classes anywhere that compete with those prices.
So an interactive audio learning course on digital media is the best way to go. Get yourself a learning course and get started!
