Description

Don't you believe you can learn a foreign language without classes? Well, maybe not 20 years ago. It's now rather easy to find affordable or even free materials for studying a foreign language independently. Finding someone to practice with has also become much easier than it used to be. This book will enable you to: - teach yourself a language from scratch to a functional level anywhere and anytime you want; - choose the best learning materials for yourself; - enhance your language skills once you have a solid foundation; - stay motivated and persistent; - revive your confidence in your language and learning abilities; - make vocabulary stick, and turn the infamous enemy called grammar into an ally; - get the most out of a leisure trip abroad. The above are discussed with an emphasis on learning the Spanish language. However, the majority of the recommendations should apply to self-learners of other languages as well.
