Learn Spanish Step-by-Step

Learn SpanishStep-by-Step

We all get enthusiastic and motivated when we have just started learning a new language, we learn the greetings and then we are stuck, we don’t know what the next step is. Here you can find a step-by-step guide that will lead you through your learning process and help you get out of your beginner phase!

So how do we learn Spanish?

The first thing you need to remember is PRACTICE EVERY DAY IF YOU WANT TO SEE RESULTS!

Learn Basics Spanish Vocabulary

Yeah, we all start with basic things, learn something easy and practical like greetings, numbers, colors and day of the week.

Rocket Languages

I really recommend that you watch these videos and learn the basic vocabulary but don’t get overwhelmed by watching all of them in one day. Let your mind process these words and actually learn them. I would recommend you watching one video in three days. During that period practice those words you have just learned. Use sentences that relate to your life with each one of them.

For memorizing and practicing those words use:

Learn Verbs

The fourth step is learning verbs, not just present but past and future form as well. The best way to learn a language is to practice it, you can’t speak in the present tense all the time, you want to talk about your future plans or what you did yesterday. So the fastest way to speak is learning Past, Present, and Future at the same time. Don’t go crazy and learn Past Perfect or Conditionals, keep it simple. In the beginning Present, Past and Future Simple is OK.

You would like to start with these verbs because they are the most used verbs in Spanish:

Haber Ir Llegar Quedar Seguir Tener
Estar Saber Ver Llevar Encantar Ser
Poder Poner Pasar Querer
Parecer Creer     
Hacer Dar Deber Hablar Dejar Decir

Connect with a Native Speaker

Ok, now you’ve learned enough vocabulary to express yourself, it’s better if you practice Spanish from the first day but not everyone can do that. Most people are afraid to talk from the first day because they think they don’t know enough words. That’s why I recommended you to make up sentences. So now it’s time for practicing with a native speaker, find one in your city using Facebook groups or use the following sites:
