Learning Spanish (Spain or Central American) is a popular past time, and is fourth in the number of non-native speakers (behind English, Mandarin, and Hindustani). It is also the fourth most spoken language by native speakers. For an English language speaker there are many similarities that can help in Spanish language acquisition. There are two popular posts on this subject from Olly and Gabe, respectively:
- The best way to learn Spanish - Story Learning, Olly Richards
- The best way to learn Spanish - Fluent Forever, Gabriel Wyner
- How to learn Spanish fast
Unfortunately these articles, while also being overwhelming, are riddled with unhelpful suggestions. It may be the place of these polyglots to simply devote most of their waking moments to learning a language. That is not possible for the vast majority of the rest of us. Also, of course, in the end, these articles are going to recommend the specific products and methods that are for sale and being promoted by they themselves. Naturally.
