Learning Spanish

For years I have been swearing that I was going to do this, and now I am finally getting busy with it. These are some personal observations about learning a new language along with some resources I use.

Get over the fact that any new language is "not like English". Embrace differences and learn to enjoy them.

Avoid getting tangled up in grammar. You didn't learn English by grinding your way through grammar, grammar jargon, and tables of verb conjugations. The main thing is to expose yourself to the language and absorb it.
