Are you looking for some tips for learning Spanish? If so, you should read this article! I’m going to show you three very easy tips that you can put to use now to improve in your new language more quickly and do it with less effort. Here they are!
1. Don’t try to be perfect – It’s very simple – if you don’t talk about astronomy in your native language, don’t learn Spanish astronomy vocabulary. Use the 80/20 principle – 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes or input. Focus on the most important things and don’t try to be perfect – you can’t learn everything.
2. Set short deadlines – Have you ever head about the Parkinson’s Law? It says that work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion. And it’s really true – if you have a month to do something, it will take you a month. If you have a week to do something, it will take you a week. How to use it while learning Spanish?
Set short deadlines for your mini-goals (like watching Spanish movies and understanding 50% of them) and bigger goals (like fluency). It will help you learn more quickly and in a more focused way.
3. Have fun – It’s a no-brainer, yet so many people believe that learning languages is hard and boring. Do you know what differentiates successful language learners from unsuccessful learners? The first ones have fun while learning. Stay away from boring methods (classes, handbooks etc.) and just immerse yourself and have fun with it.
Spanish is a very easy language if you have the right approach. I believe that these three simple tips can make it even easier – all you need to do is use them. Really, if you don’t use them, you wasted a few minutes of your life reading this article.
