Learning Spanish can be tricky, especially if you're trying to do it on your own. Conjugating verbs especially can take a while to master. If you're like me, you've probably tried learning in a variety of ways - with books, CDs, DVDs, or even computer programs.
While those are all great ways to get started with learning Spanish, there's one thing that they're all missing - feedback. Basically, they all work the same way - they teach you words and phrases by rote memorization. That's great if all you want is the ability to spout off a bunch of Spanish words and phrases, but what happens when you find yourself in a real conversation with someone speaking Spanish?
I'll tell you what happens - you get completely lost! It's impossible to follow conversations if you have't been practicing conversation skills.
That's why I LOVE this website - WebSpanish.com. They have the most amazing system for helping you learn Spanish online! No books, no CDs, no repeating "Como esta usted, me llamo Sara" 500 times, only to find out later that you're pronouncing it wrong!
Nope, with WebSpanish, you spend your time online talking to a living, breathing, Spanish-language tutor. All their tutors are native Spanish speakers, who are not only trained to teach Spanish using modern methodology, they're also trained especially for teaching in the online environment.
Not only is WebSpanish a proven way of learning Spanish, it's convenient and works with YOUR schedule. You'll be able to have class at hours that fit into you're daily routine. All it takes is a computer with broadband internet connection and a microphone headset! Your tutor will work with you at your level using real Spanish conversation and a "virtual blackboard" that you can follow along with on your computer screen.
The best part about WebSpanish for me is that you aren't simply memorizing Spanish phrases and parroting them back - you're learning progressively in a natural manner by having live conversations.
