Aug 17, 2007
Using the latest technology or with the help of the internet, you can learn Spanish at home quickly, successfully, inexpensively and at the pace of your choice. Conversational fluency in Spanish empowers people who need a high standard of the Spanish language for business, travel or school. Not only will a wide range of career and business opportunities open up to you, but it will also become a pleasure to travel in Spanish speaking regions.

If you choose to learn Spanish at home, you will have a wide range of educational media available to you, as well as more quality time to focus on educational content. Streaming media allows a learner full control of when, where, how fast, and how often he or she wants to learn. Your Spanish learning sessions can be quick snatches at odd times or long late-night sessions due to the 24x7 access to educational media that is now available. People can get a chance to craft their responses at their own pace. For educators, lectures can be video taped and distributed in an efficient way to students online.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Learning Spanish at Home

Advantages of learn Spanish at home are many. Some of them are - decreased commuting time, saving many dollars in gasoline and car maintenance or transit fares, and relief from untold stress fighting traffic. This is also a plus for many who dislike to dress up to feel comfortable in settings outside the home. Homemakers, mostly women but also an increasing number of men, are choosing home-based learning programs in order to have more flexible learning hours and to be closer to their families.

A few minor disadvantages of learning Spanish at home include three children storming in to ask for snacks; or your teenager may resent having to keep the stereo low because you're learning Spanish; or unexpected visits or telephone calls from friends or neighbors. Often it seems easier to water the plants or do the laundry than to learn and practice Spanish. Without the deadlines imposed by teachers or instructors, it can be hard to finish exercises on your own. It takes time and discipline to establish steady, at-home learning patterns. But these disadvantages of learning at home can be minimized by self-discipline and by setting clear limits with family and friends.
