“Me Gusta” Method To Learn Spanish

Learning another language is not always the easiest task and it can even become frustrating on many occasions. A language, like any physical exercise or learning to play a musical instrument, requires constant practice and commitment to see long-term results. 

Although some people indeed have a facility to learn a language, this does not mean that it is something impossible for the rest of the mortals and it is something that we have already been able to verify throughout 16 years of teaching Spanish.

How Does The “Me Gusta” Method Work?

This method has been tested in thousands of students of different nationalities, ages, and different educational levels, giving excellent results. We have identified characteristics of the students that favor their learning, for example:

Characteristics Of An Effective Spanish Class

Each class is pre-planned and organized according to the needs and prior abilities of each student. Our total immersion online or face-to-face classes are divided into two parts:

How do we learn a new language?

 

There are countless theories and “formulas” that promise to learn any language in a short time and with little effort, the truth is that learning a language like Spanish should be a conscious and disciplined activity.

 

Have you ever wondered how babies learn? The human brain is surprising, babies learn by interaction with others, for example, with their parents or older siblings, with whom they relate sounds to an object or an idea, imitating and babbling sounds that produce a reaction in their environment.

 

Something you should know is that children and many adults do not know the grammar in-depth, that is, they do not know the syntactic rules or the irregularities of the verbs, they only speak the language and that’s it.

 

An effective way to remember new vocabulary is to make mental relationships, as happens with babies, you can relate words by sound or meaning, for example; The word “escoba” (broom) could be related to “Pablo Escobar” and his mustache that looks like a broom or the word “Viernes” which in English sounds like “Beer-nes” relating it to the party on Friday. There are many words that you will surely want to memorize, just look for shortcuts to remember them.

 

The other method we recommend is to use “flashcards”, cards or pieces of paper with two sides; on one side you write the word you want to remember, and on the other, you can put an example or a drawing, we do not recommend just writing the translation as it is ineffective.
