When first learning Spanish, one of the most important things to consider is how your accent sounds. When it comes down to it, speaking a language well is what's most important. If you want to quickly get into the habit of speaking Spanish, get anything you can find written in Spanish and read it out loud. While written material is good to practice with, you can also get good practice by repeating any phrases you hear from people actually speaking Spanish. This process can show you how to use proper inflections and using words in the right order and even the way idioms are used in Spanish. An added bonus is that reading out loud in a separate language--especially when you work at it--is a lot of fun. Think of how it felt to learn songs when you were a child; this can be similar. Use the internet! You'll soon discover the internet is just full of helpful hints to learn Spanish. One such very helpful website is, Babelfish. It will translate for you. You can type your sentence into Babelfish and have it translated to Spanish. Tools like this can be incredibly valuable to help you learn how to turn what you want to say in your own language into a workable Spanish sentence.

There are also other online learning tools that you can take advantage of to help you learn Spanish and other languages.
