Spanish is easily one of the most widely spoken language throughout the world. In fact, Spanish is actually the second most common language spoken all over the planet. The most widely spoken language is Chinese, of course. Now, no one would ever confuse Spanish for Chinese, but the two do share some similarities.
For one, there are two major spoken forms of Chinese: Mandarin and Cantonese. There are also two major spoken forms of Spanish: the Spanish spoken in Spain and the Spanish used throughout Latin America.
But Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world for a reason: simply it is an intercontinental tongue. And, because of that, there is no better reason to study Spanish as a Robotel language laboratory second language.
As with all things, the place you need to start if you want to study Spanish is at the beginning. The same goes for all languages too, of course. In this case, studying beginning Spanish introduces you to the essential mechanics of the language, quickly listening to it and using it in a natural context. Obviously you will not completely understand it right away but so much of language is the behavior and inflection surrounding the words and as that becomes a natural part of communication, the comprehension will seem to come out of nowhere.
Thus, in a beginning Spanish program you will learn:
- Basic Spanish language grammatical structure
- Standard Spanish verb conjugation
- Important Spanish conversational vocabulary
When you start your education with these three things it will make the more complex and subtle aspects of the language easier to learn too. After all, the purpose of learning any language is to be able to use it in a real life context, in conversation.
After you start to comprehend the fundamentals, you can start to investigate some of these nuances and complexities that are necessary for conversational Spanish. Indeed, the beginning level is more about exploring the foundations of language; upon completion you might be able to read a Spanish newspaper or a novel from a Spanish writer. The intermediate level focuses on ever day applications of the language, in speech. By the time you finish this level of education you should be able to, perhaps, order food at a restaurant in Saville or even backpack through Central America.
