Spanish Language Schools
Language experts and students agree that studying Spanish in a Spanish speaking country is the fastest way to learn to speak sentences and gain basic conversational ability. It is a great first step to becoming fluent in Spanish. Oftentimes people who travel or live briefly in a hispanic country seem to pick up Spanish with amazing speed, even without studying. Yet while those who are self-taught can often communicate basic concepts and ideas to the locals, their grammar usually suffers, and their conversational syntax often resembles that of Tarzan.

Studying intensive Spanish courses in a language school is a great way to quickly bring you up to speed with the basics of grammar, while giving you plenty of exposure to locals with whom you can practice your language skills. Many students report learning up to ten new vocabulary words a day.
