1. Make your Study Plan
How do I learn Spanish by myself? That’s a big question with a lot of itty-bitty answers. Bottom line, I did it, and so can you! I’m here to help get you to figure this puzzle out today.
My guess is you’re not sure how to start, maybe even trying to figure out what went wrong. Either way, you need to know exactly what to do to accomplish your language learning goals. The steps to create your unique study plan are laid out for you.
2. Speak Spanish with your children
Whether you speak Spanish or not, you can create a rich language learning environment at home for your children. Naturally, most kids resist learning another language. As parents though, we value good things and want the best for our children. If you’ve been stuck not knowing how to start speaking Spanish with them, this starter guide will help you with five simple steps.
Sometimes you just need some basic words and phrases to say. In this post, you’ll find the most common Spanish vocabulary parents need to talk to their kids. They are the same things you say in English, so that makes it so much easier for them to understand.
3. Increase your passive and active Spanish vocabulary
You don’t understand any Spanish words. Even worse, you can’t figure out what to say when you need to. The standard practice of cramming and memorizing is limited. What you need is a way to turn new words into passive and active vocabulary. That way you can understand them and use them in speech and print.
4. Conjugate Spanish Verbs

More than anything else, you need to practice conjugation regularly. I recreated these conjugation sheets for you because I know they work. They are exactly how I was able to finish my Spanish degree at UCLA and not flunk out.
5. Build Your Vocabulary
Everybody learns differently, but all language learners need to practice. Art is an ideal source for visual learners. Describing artwork in Spanish is a good way to practice all Spanish skills.
Start with creating a study plan for the year to improve your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Set your vocabulary and grammar goals and track your progress over the year. From your listening and reading sources, add new words to your register and turn them into passive and active vocabulary you can use in real life. Analyze words, phrases, and sentences to connect them correctly.
