With over 437 million people around the world who speak Spanish, taking on this challenge will leave you in plenty of good company. There are many who make the decision to learn Spanish because of travel plans or professional needs. Some recognize the language is increasing in their lives in music, television shows, and movies, and hope to have the opportunity to be more involved in popular culture of a new language.
The most effective way to become fluent in Spanish is to immerse yourself in the language. In an ideal world, that would involve taking an extended trip to one of the 20 countries where Spanish is the native language to practice this approach. Sadly, for most, this is not a particularly feasible learning option.
But there’s no need to worry. With Rosetta Stone, you can have an immersive learning experience without having to empty your bank account. Our immersive teaching method is called Dynamic Immersion®, and it is the most natural way to learn Spanish, or any new language. Words and phrases are reinforced to learners as they practice speaking and listening in an online environment. The lessons provide real-world contexts, allowing you to work towards becoming fluent in Spanish, not simply becoming an expert at memorizing vocabulary.
Spanish fluency language-learning programs are designed to build confidence in both speaking and understanding the language. Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion® method is designed to prepare you to adapt in new conversations by applying the context of what you already know to new words and phrases. A blend of technology-based learning and native-speaking tutors will simulate real-world immersion wherever you are. And our brief, 10-minute lessons allow you to learn Spanish on your own time and schedule. You will first master the basics, and then move on to longer phrases and more complex grammar, with the goal of becoming fluent in Spanish.
The more you study, the quicker you will learn. And the Rosetta Stone award-winning mobile app is included with your language subscription. This enables you to take your Spanish lessons on the road and fit your studies in on your own time, by providing the most practical learning experience possible.
One of the most important elements of learning Spanish is making sure that your pronunciation is accurate. There are some Spanish pronunciation distinctions which can make speaking the language a little more challenging. The letter ‘r’, for example, is pronounced differently and takes some practice. This distinctive sound is formed by tapping the tip of the tongue on the roof of the mouth, about a third of the way back. Some new Spanish language learners proclaim success by attempting to make the “tt” sound, as it sounds in the English word “butter.” To ensure your pronunciation is on target, we have embedded TruAccent® technology in every Rosetta Stone language lesson. This is a patented speech recognition engine which compares your voice to native speakers, and issues you real-time corrections based on the quality of your pronunciation. With your daily practice, you will soon be speaking Spanish fluently and with confidence wherever your travels take you!
