Maybe you have decided to start learning Spanish on your own without going to a college class or working with a tutor. This is much easier to do nowadays given the many language learning resources available on the internet and more and more language apps you can download onto your smart phone.
You have probably already worked out the benefits of learning alone; you study at your own pace whenever you have the time and will not feel the classroom pressure to keep up with everyone else. You don’t feel left behind if you miss a class. You can choose exactly what to study to achieve your specific goals.
However, there are disadvantages and difficulties that people face who decide to “go it alone” when learning a language. The first problem most people face is “language learning overwhelm”. You come across so much advice about what to learn first – should you focus on grammar or growing your vocabulary? Should you try to start speaking straight away? What are the best resources to use? How are you going to test yourself and keep track of your progress? The list of questions goes on.
This is why I have created an e-book “Study Spanish Solo” – to help people who want to learn Spanish on their own get started on the right track for success. The e-book is perfect for:
If you come under any of these categories you would greatly benefit from having the e-book to refer to either now or to come back to at different times in the future, whenever you need advice or to mix up your resources.
The e-book is split into ten sections each with a Workbook at the end so that you can make notes of key points or things you want to remember. There is also a cheat sheet of some really good questions and phrases to use in your language exchange sessions with a native Spanish speaker.
There are sections on all of the core skills: speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, learning vocabulary.
There is advice about HOW to learn as well as links to many of the most up-to-date Spanish resources; books, apps, websites, CDs, TV shows, radio stations and films to learn from.
