How to learn Spanish while abroad

It is good to learn Spanish in your native country but it is much better when you go abroad and learn it there. Also to learn the culture and customs is a bigger impact in learning a new language.

Should I take Spanish classes abroad?

Some travelers and expats take it for granted that, if they live abroad long enough, they’ll speak fluent Spanish. “Why should I take Spanish classes?” they think. “The whole reason I came here was so I wouldn’t have to do homework and boring grammar exercises!”

Unfortunately, trying to learn a language purely through absorption often isn’t enough, especially for beginning learners. English is now a global language. Anywhere you go, you’ll find English learners eager to practice with you! In order to immerse yourself in Spanish, you’ll have to first jump over the hurdle of being able to communicate with others in Spanish better than they can communicate with you in English. Otherwise, you’ll likely end up speaking a lot more English than you’d like. Taking a class is a great way to get to that point more quickly.

Additionally, taking a Spanish class will help you nail down grammar and pronunciation specifics that you might never pick up from conversation alone. And if you find grammar drills incredibly boring, just think how exciting it will be to directly apply the concepts you learn in class to the world around you!
