as far as i can remember, i had always wanted to learn different languages other than my native tongue. i realized my dream when i majored in two European languages in college. it was both fun and challenging and frustrating at times. it helped though that i was already familiar with Spanish (20 units was part of the curriculum) since a lot of words in my native tongue had Spanish origins or were derived from it.
my love and passion for learning languages has never dwindled and while i was reading this guide, i could not help but remember those days at the university - my attempts, blunders and triumphs!
it is not hard to relate to author Erin Ashley Sieber's experiences and i welcome her tips and techniques. her methods and approach are simple without resorting to too much technical details. i have done some of what she has outlined and i am eager to try out those i have not.
with a little tweaking, creativity and imagination, i believe that this book can be a helpful and useful reference not only in learning how to speak Spanish but also other languages as well.
in the end, learning a language and being successful in speaking, reading and writing it depends largely on the learner himself/herself. based on my experiences, i can tell you that it will be a long drawn-out, sometimes "torturous" process but in the end, every second will be well worth it.
