Learning Spanish becomes more effective with regular practice. If you are in an environment where everyone else is learning Spanish just like you, then it is your duty to find the right acquaintances that can help you to make your learning easier.
Though the language trainers assist you in learning the language, the people you mingle with, in your daily routine acquaint you in improving the knowledge you have gained, especially, when it is regarding practicing Spanish language skills.
When you categorize your friend groups, specifically, based on the language(s) they know, you can find three groups of people who you can make acquaintance with while you are learning Spanish.
These three categories of people are – the group of people who know only Spanish, secondly people who know both Spanish and English, and the third category is English speaking Spanish students. They are helpful in improving your skills and in making your learning process more practical. Let us now see how each group is beneficial in its way.
The first group are the native Spanish speakers and they don’t know any language other than Spanish. You can find such people on social networking sites or in different online social groups or in your neighborhood. Make them your acquaintances. The main benefit you get from these people is – you are forced to speak only in Spanish, since they will never understand if you speak in any other language. So, in order to continue the relationship, you are forced to speak in Spanish. This is the right group to spend time while learning Spanish.
Coming to the second group, these people can speak both the languages and will help you to learn and practice Spanish by enabling you to have a thorough understanding. Since they are aware of both languages they can help you in translation and to know new words in Spanish. However, it is you, who can make the most by asking them different questions. But there is a chance that, you may tend to speak in English often and get deviated. However, this depends on you and your passion to learn the language.
Finally, the third category is the English speaking Spanish students. They are similar to you since they are also learning Spanish like you. However, they are one of the best acquaintances to discuss, practice and share your doubts. These people are easily found in your classrooms or training sessions and hence you can feel free to make the most from the combined learning sessions.
All three groups of people are beneficial in their own way. When you try to learn Spanish with the help of these people, you can follow an effective learning process.
