Learn Spanish through Immersion Program

May 11, 2008
Trying to learn Spanish without being able to talk to native speakers is difficult. Learning the language from teachers whose native language is English is fine, but they are unable to give you the in-depth experience of the language that you would get by speaking Spanish with Spanish people.

You can 'immerse' yourself in the language by staying amongst Spanish people. This is known as immersion study. You will find yourself in a position where it is necessary to use Spanish in both your business and social life.

However, the payoff is that, as you are forced to use it constantly, you learn Spanish much faster. You will have no choice but to learn Spanish if you are to understand what is going on around you. It is a great motivational tool.

Unconsciously you will pick up many tiny insights daily. You will be learning Spanish in much the same way that you learned English as a child.

You will imitate the way those around you speak. You will intuit the meanings of words and phrases by the way they are used. As you go through the days, you will gain knowledge of social language and customs. Learn Spanish this way and you will remember it for life.

If at all possible, you should try you have a Spanish tutor while you are engaged in immersion study. This way you will be able to get clarification on any points you are unsure of, and they can help you to have deeper insights into the language and culture.

If you wish to make your own arrangements to engage in this sort of study, it is easy enough. Just arrange to live in a Spanish speaking area or country for a while. If possible find a local Spanish tutor, and then make sure to mix to the fullest extent with the locals.

You can also use the services of one of the many companies who organise this sort of study. They will make all the arrangements for you, which might well include living with a Spanish family.

This is total immersion in the language and culture of the country. You will be in a position where you are making polite dinner conversation over every meal. You will be included in invitations to social functions that you might otherwise have missed. You might learn Spanish during your time inside the home in an informal way that you would never have thought possible.

Many academic institutions, colleges and universities offer immersion studies as part of their courses, you can arrange to spend a term or two abroad, broadening your horizons.

Immersion studies have always had some of the best results for people who wanted to learn Spanish. Foreign exchange students have been doing it for years. Now, the option is available to anyone.
