Making a New Year's resolution to improve your Spanish?

by Erin

A recent comment on an old post prompted me to bump that old post up to the top here. Last year around this time, our teachers put together a list of 10 tips to help you come through on your New Year's resolution to learn Spanish - 10 tips to making progress all through the day, the week and the year, if you're trying to learn a new language.

Paqui posted the list here last year after we released it to the press. And so, just in time for another round of New Year's resolutions, here's a link to: Is your New Year's Resolution to learn Spanish? 10 tips on how to learn Spanish or any foreign language.

Hello,
I enjoy your blog, and wanted to let you and your users know about a site that I have just gone live with. It is a completely free online language learning site. You can go in and practice Spanish or start learning Spanish from scratch. I really hope people enjoy it! It is based on the language program developed by the Foreign Service Institute over 30 years ago! The best part is, its totally Free!
Thanks so much for all the great information you provide. Hope my site will be of interest to your users.
The site is www.loquella.com/learn-spanish
Best,
Rebecca

Great resources! I've also made it my New Year's resolution to finally learn Spanish (or at least learn a lot more this year than in previous years). I'd like to add another resource to the list. A friend of mine just introduced me to a new Spanish podcast called
'Finally Learn Spanish'
by Edufone.com. I've had a year of Spanish classes so many
of the other Spanish podcasts were too basic for me. I want to learn Spanish quickly and I want to learn the Spanish that is really spoken in Mexico. I was thrilled to learn how to order at a restaurant through their dialogs of real world situations. After listening to the podcasts, I was able to order almost all in Spanish at the local Mexican Restaurant. Their language learning tips are helping me learn Spanish much faster than I'd been able to learn with CDs.

I hope others also think the podcasts are helpful.

Here's a suggestion if your New Year's Resolution is to learn Spanish: check out InterLangua. I take lessons with them, and I just wanted to spread the word about how great it is. I get to learn Spanish from a native in the comfort of my own room! That's right, InterLangua's lessons are via webcam with professional Spanish tutors, who just happen to be Guatemalan. Your Spanish comes straight from the source with this program! I definitely recommend checking out their website.

Thanks Gloria and Loquella for letting our visitors know about your sites. We're here to point out resources for learning Spanish, and it sounds like each of your sites is a valuable tool for learning and keeping up Spanish at home.
