How to learn common Spanish phrases fast
Knowing common Spanish phrases and sentences like the ones here will make your vacation much more enjoyable.
So, how do you actually learn, and remember, common Spanish phrases? And how do you do it fast?
Here are some tips that will save you precious time:
- Always learn common Spanish phrases and sentences with audio material AND text, rather than with audio OR text only.
- Make sure your Spanish course gives you the English translation of all the phrases and sentences in it, so you don’t have to spend time with a dictionary.
- Read the common Spanish phrases in your course out loud, along with the recordings. Do this many times over a number of weeks, until you know them by heart.
- When reading out Spanish phrases and sentences, try to keep up with the speakers in your recordings. This will help you say them naturally, and understand them better when others say them.
- To maximize your learning, 50% of each study session must focus on reviewing past lessons, always including common phrases and sentences.
- Remember: the better you know basic common Spanish phrases, the faster you’ll be able to learn, and remember, more complex sentences.
