We all know the importance of knowing Spanish today. Spanish has become a universal language spoken all around the world. People require Spanish translators all the time. Translators are paid in many hundreds of dollars for a few hours of work. You may even have the opportunity to serve your embassy by just knowing the language.
Learning any language is not easy. Even if you are well versed in French you will not find it extremely easy to pick up German. Every language takes time and diligent efforts to be spoken fluently. However, there are ways and methods of sounding more professional and glib about the language.
Firstly try to use pronouns only when they are required. Try to avoid pronouns wherever it is not needed. Using pronouns would make you speak shorter sentences and would make you unable to hold a conversation for a long time. Also, the person with whom you are speaking with will know that you do not have a thorough hold on the language. So limit your use of pronouns.
Next, try forming grammatically correct sentences. Do not try to use words you are unsure of and won’t be able to explain and merge with the other words. While it is always that you learn to speak after hearing others speak, don’t use words and phrases if you are not completely aware of what you are saying. The structure of the Spanish sentences is similar to the English sentences. Take time to understand and acquaint yourself with phrases before you start using them.
Understand that all English words are not the same as Spanish words and hence cannot be used as if they are the same. Understand the usage of each word before you use them while speaking. You may end up making a fool of yourself!
You will simply have to repeatedly learn Spanish phrases. You may not get the entire phrase the first time and may have to keep at it. Word to word translation of phrases occurs very rarely.
