become fluent in spanish
Learning Spanish

It helps that I had French in high school. A lot of Spanish is just a new way of pronouncing French, and in some cases English.

What I do is watch TeleMundo and UniVision. They have a lot of fun shows. Sometimes it seems that even the newscasters want to cut loose and do a little Latino dance. :-)

It also helps to watch movies with Spanish audio and English subtitles. I’ve also noticed that the Spanish audio and the Spanish subtitles often don’t match exactly. What’s that about?
