Hi Friends.. Right now I can speak and read as many as 7 languages. Learning languages is one of my prized passion. I teach linguistics and this has provided me with a privilege of knowing English phonetics and hence I hardly miss pronounce English words. Even if I get slip my son reminds me that I was wrong pronouncing the word. This is a feedback that I taught my son who is 7.1 years old. The the matter is I wish to learn SPANISH Language. Would any one tell me how I can learn on line or any other way. I know there are many here whose first language is Spanish and also those who are well versed in this Language. Just lead a kindly light....

Rajib- My husband can speak Spanish fairly well, you may want to find him on here if you want someone to practice with. I'd say if you're looking for an interactive version, Rossetta makes some really nice products in terms of languages. Namaste-Anora

Have you thought about getting one of those CD language courses? I recently bought one of the ones you listen to in your car only I haven't been listening to it that much so I haven't learned yet.

Hi Canellita, you mean the ready made stuff? Would they really serve the purpose? I have doubt for there is the question of pronounciation.

The CDs I bought incorporate language people actually use as opposed to the formal language in academic language classes.

Aside from learning online with online work sheets and videos, you can also chat with a real person who knows spanish. Of course, to be more effective, video chat would be nice too as you would hear and see the person. Most of them use Skype as VoIP is good with clear video and audio.

Proficiency in 7 languages is no joke my friend! You are a real linguist. I can only manage to master 3 languages and a handful of local dialects. Besides English I speak chinese quite well. The other language is my national language. I took up french for a while but surrendered as I am so confused with the 'gender' things that are associated with the application of this language. It is nice to know many languages as it is an asset to oneself and you will not be lost whenever you are with the native speakers of that language. I think the Filipinos are good in spanish and they are many here that can help you out. Good luck to you.

Unfortunately I lost my sight on the chinese characters but could only speak the lingo. It seems my whole siblings can speak chinese and the good part here is my eldest sister is a lecturer in chinese languages in one of the local U here. So it helps a lot. I read romanized chinese. LOL .

When I was in college I was able to study Spanish, as before we have Spanish subjects. I got Spanish 1 and 2 . I was not able to make use of it however, after graduation. I can no longer remember other words or terms except for greetings or famous words often used. Though it's quite easy for us to learn as there are spanish words been adopted by our forefathers as Spaniards ruled our country so may years ago. I remember before I can make spanish sentences already, only that in 30 years of not putting it into practice I can no longer recall correct spanish composition. Though I remember some as "Como se llama?" What is your name? "Donde Vive usted?" - Where do you live? "Que ora es?" - What time is it? "Buenas Dias" - Good morning or Good Day. "Buenas Noches" - Good evening "Muchas Gracias" - Thank you very much. "No hay de que" - Don't mention it. "Adios" - Goodbye, "Hasta La Vista" - Till we meet again, "Yo te amo" - I love you. I know more of spanish words and their English translation but I forgot sometimes their conjugation and other verbs as well but I think I just have to review should I get spanish textbooks. I suggest you buy spanish text books such as Spanish 1 and 2 in Learning Spanish also maybe a spanish dictionary with English translation. Good Luck, friend.

Well Rajib it is indeed a great achievement that you have mastery over 7 languages.Being a professor of English ,your command on the language is so perfect.I wish i could have same proficiency in English as you have.As far as i am concerned i know only 3 languages i.e.Punjabi,Hindi and English but i do want to learn French because i am going to settle down in Canada and in the near future and French is the first language which people speak in Canada.

It is very impressive to know that you can speak and read 7 languages. That's so amazing:) I think you have the talent to learn language. I think nowadays it's easier to learn a foreign language. Try to find some Spanish and make friends with them. I think your Spanish will have a good progress. I love China

My daughter is very fluid in Spanish. She tells me that one of the best programs out there is from Rosetta Stone. You can order it off the internet. It's a cd based program that lets you hear, and repeat words. Then you do a workbook lesson that goes along with it. She said they used it in her school to teach to the Elementary students, but it is very good.

Hi krajibg! Spanish is my second language. I learned to speak it because I work with several hispanics which were more than happy to help me learn. The Rosetta stone that everyone is mentioning is one of the best programs for learning Spanish.
