Why learn Spanish as an adult?
Did you know that if you can speak Spanish and English, you can communicate with 80% of the world population?! It is the second most widely spoken language in the world, coming ahead of English and right behind Chinese. Speaking Spanish allows you to not only communicate with millions more people throughout the world, but it also lets you connect on another level with new cultures throughout the world.
Label your surroundings
Immersion is the best way to learn any language. Find ways to surround yourself with the language on a daily basis. Placing labels on everyday items throughout your house will provide necessary repetition to help you remember new vocabulary!
Watch TV & Movies in Spanish
This is an amazing way to learn Spanish as an adult. Pick any movie or show that you already love and know, and put the audio in Spanish. Better yet, add in Spanish subtitles so you can listen and read while you watch. You can also watch Spanish shows and movies.

This might feel intimidating as a beginner, but you don’t need to limit yourself to books for grownups! In fact, finding some easy reader kid’s books would be an amazing way to start reading in Spanish. There are all different levels available and they help you so much as you learn new vocabulary and grammar as an adult.
I absolutely love the books from FluencyMatters for learning Spanish for intermediate learners.
