In Japan, students learn grammar and vocabulary much as Americans generations ago learned Latin. While this situation is slowly changing in Japan, students who want to learn to communicate in English generally have to go outside the normal school system to study languages in private language schools. Many Americans and other native English speakers teach in such schools. The students come to use English, to practice what they know. Many teachers in these schools have materials provided for them, but many teachers also need to create their own materials. In this article, we would like to present a topic that we have found of interest to students in Japan: alternative American lifestyles.
It’s a very important step! Find a personal reason to study a specific language. Why do you want to learn it? What is your goal? This will help you learn and practice even if you won’t be motivated to do it.

Now, don’t get mad a start making accusations about all the shallow people out there. While it may be true that some people place too much emphasis on physical appearances, the bottom line is it does make a difference when two people are meeting and making initial evaluations of their interest in each other. And, it’s also a trust thing. It is always going to be much easier to interact with a face than with a blank box.
quotes in latin So you can choose the time, place and speed of your lessons. Go as fast or as slow as you want. Save time by multitasking and listening to Spanish lessons while you are walking, running, driving or doing household chores. You could even be learning Spanish on the plane to Mexico, or in your hotel after you arrive!
Probably the best way to learn how to speak Spanish (or any language) is to actually take a class in a class room setting. However I don’t know many people that have that kind of time. The second best thing is to find a program or class you can take online that is interactive. Something that requires a microphone where you speak the words they tell you and it will let you know if you are pronouncing the words correctly. All interactive programs will force you speak out loud and learn how to carry on a conversation.
