Ever since the days of Julius Caesar, people have wondered how long it takes to learn a language. (Don’t Google this, I made it up.)
The most sensible answer is:
It depends on so many things!
Like how close your target language is to your native language, or how many hours a day you will devote to the learning process.
So it depends is probably the most accurate answer, but that’s NOT the answer I’ll be giving you today.
Let’s face it.
Most people start their day like shit.
I used to be one of them.
I’d stumble out of bed like a zombie…grab my phone…eat something…and then shower.
By then, I would *still* feel, and look, like some pale walking dead creature.
If you have any experience with learning another language, you know that…
…language learning can get boring.
And that’s a big reason why most people never learn a new language.
Boredom equals pain, so people shy away from it.
But you shouldn’t let boredom be an obstacle in your path to fluency.
You can learn how to deal with it.

Did you know that the best Spanish language course is a completely FREE download?
It’s called FSI Basic Spanish, and it’s an extremely effective course.
You’ll be speaking Spanish at a very decent level if you complete it.
In fact, I know of no other Spanish course (or app), free or paid, that gets results like FSI Basic Spanish.
So you’ve made it…
You can now speak your new language well enough to…
1) Talk about more than just the weather. 2) Say more things than just “your country is nice” (Benny, is that you?).
You’re ready to travel to the country where they speak your new language.
When you’re there, you just go out and talk, right?
Well, you may want to think again.
