Hi, I've been going though the 1.4 course Spanish Premium. By Hearing, Writing, Knowing, Speaking it. What can I do in order to speak it fluently?.

Hi- There are tons of ways to learn to speak fluently- Thinking in Spanish can really help you learn sentence structure and remember words, as can writing. The best way to learn fluency is to speak with people who know Spanish, but that could be hard to do, depending on where you live. Advanced Learning Techniques has some suggestions, such as talking to pets (If you don't have any, talking to objects could work). Good luck!

Practice is always the best way to get it right. I have found that different media help me to get it right. For example I watch spanish television channels ( the advertisements are familiar, only en espanol, and that helps); then I try to speak with people that are spanish whenever I have the opportunity (this is always a nice way and many are appreciative of your efforts) ; and at our public library there is a group that meets once a week where everyone speaks (or tries to speak) en espanol. Some are seasoned speakers and some are beginners. There is a person who facilitates the conversations and this helps a lot. My advice, I guess, is to take every opportunity (including reading spanish material and dvertisements) and don't give up. It all tends to jell when you least expect it. Mucho suerte!

Hola a todos, ¡Estoy de acuerdo! Somehow I missed this post. I practice speaking at every opportunity that I encounter. Yesterday my wife and I went to our favorite restaurant for pupusas and there was a waitress there that was new. I told her I was studying Spanish and needed to practice speaking and we spoke entirely in Spanish. Just ordering and basic conversation, but I felt very comfortable with it. Poco a poco. ¿Sí? And yes speaking to pets is a great idea. We have had a "foster dog" that has been with us for several months and he has now become somewhat bilingual as he responds to Spanish, but he still barks like a gringo. Saludos, Ricardo

I echo Ricardo's advice. Don't just rely on Rocket Spanish. Integrate Spanish into your everyday life as much as possible. I write my shopping lists in Spanish, along with other "to do" lists. Whenever you see something written in Spanish, try to read it; even simple things like bilingual signs at stores. If you don't have a pet, just talk to yourself in Spanish. I like to cook, so I try to watch Juliana Lopez May's cooking show on HITN every day. Cook shows are good because you can see what the person is doing or adding, which gives you visual clues to words you may not understand. And as Ricardo said, take every opportunity to speak to a Spanish speaker in his/her language. Almost all, once they know you are trying to learn the language, will be very patient and helpful. And just keep at it. Buena suerte! Dan
