How long will it take for me to become fluent in Spanish?
This depends on your natural ability, dedication, & on the number of times you come
to Spanish class a week etc... Assuming you have average ability, you do average work,
come once a week... it will take you approximately 8 months - one year to learn Spanish!
Don't believe the books, software programs and dvds out there that say you can learn in a
month! Realistically, it takes about 8 months - a year with our technique!
I am an older adult so is it too late for me to learn a second language?
NO! :-) It is never too late to learn. Some people think that only children have the learning advantage
because their brains are like a sponge but adults have a different advantage. Adults already have a
network of knowledge in their brains so we use this existing network as a bridge for Spanish!
Should I spend money on foreign language programs or softwares?
No, you don't have to! If you have extra money and want to treat yourself to something, then I
would say it's fine but these programs are over priced for what they really do( kind of like Starbucks coffee)
These types of programs are good for only some people but NOT for all-these are not a "one size fits all" program.
You can learn the same material online for free it is just that these programs package it up in a nice
visual way and it will help you learn vocabulary but again you can do that on your own for free
or through other inexpensive resources!
If English grammar is not my strength, will that make learning Spanish difficult?
We use simple non complicated grammatical terms in class so it will not be a big challenge.
Learning a second language will actually help you understand the grammatical structure
of your native language!
