Learning Tools for Spanish

Proper Punctuation
Proper punctuation helps other’s understand you, enabling you to be more clear and concise. Listening to native radio and TV stations can greatly assist in learning a new language.

Better pronunciation through song.
If you enjoy singing, try learning some songs in the language you’re learning. This is a fun way to improve your pronunciation and vocabulary. You could also try learning to recite poems and stories. Listening to songs is an enjoyable way to improve your listening comprehension, especially if you have the lyrics written out so that you can follow them as you listen.

Useful information

Flash cards are a useful tool for learning vocabulary and grammar, if you look at them regularly. I found them particularly useful when learning Chinese characters. They might have a character, word, phrase or sentence on one side, and a translation, definition and/or notes on the other side. You can make them yourself, buy ready made sets of cards, or use flash card programs such as Anki, Mnemosyne and Flashcard Exchange.

Flash card programs are available from:

“Did you know that studying a second language can improve your skills and grades in math and English and can improve entrance exam scores— SATs, ACTs, GREs, MCATs, and LSATs?

Research has shown that math and verbal SAT scores climb higher with each additional year of foreign language study, which means that the longer you study a foreign language, the stronger your skills become to succeed in school. Studying a foreign language can improve your analytic and interpretive capacities.”
