Why Learning Spanish Requires Practice Every Day.
It’s not enough to just take a class once in a while. To really master a new language, you need to practice every day. This means speaking with people, reading books, watching movies, and listening to music in the language.
When I was an English student, for example, I used to watch lots of movies and TV shows in English. First, I started watching with subtitles in Spanish, my native language. Then, I chose English subtitles. Eventually I turned off the subtitles. This is a great strategy to challenge yourself and measure your own learning progress.
