Spanish Language: A Comprehensive and Balanced Curriculum


Knowledge of Spanish is very helpful when basking in these beautiful, Spanish-speaking countries, but even if you don’t know the language it’s still very enjoyable. If these financially challenged locals can learn another language without ever participating in any sort of total- immersion course in an English speaking country then what excuse do Americans have for not learning Spanish. A comprehensive and balanced curriculum integrating all aspects of the Spanish language, reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, phonetics and vocabulary, makes the language study more comprehensive, but keeps it simple at the same time.

One of the reasons that Spanish is easy to learn for English speaking people is because the English language has many of its roots from Spanish. This method is ‘living in a Spanish-speaking dominated area’ where you could self-impose an exile from the English language. Just to give you one example, when I was in the early stages of studying the Spanish language I was naturally unfamiliar with the typical way in which many Spanish-speaking people greet each other.

For you, the only possibility of immersing yourself in the language and culture of a Spanish-speaking country is when you’re eating tacos or burritos with a cheap bottle of Spanish red in the backyard. For my own part, I found that having Spanish-speaking friends and taking part in a Spanish speaking social life hugely benefited my study of the Spanish language. Because this language has found a home in so many countries, Spanish-speaking people have migrated all over the world.

For example, one organization in a country with English as the national language, spent years implementing a diversity plan which involved teaching 80% of its workforce to speak Spanish so that the Spanish speaking minority could understand their colleagues. Rocket Spanish basically takes the same lead as many popular language courses of recent -- interactive speaking. Once you go through the Learnables you will be ready for the Pimsleur Spanish products—the speaking component of your new language acquisition. When native Spanish speakers via audio or video conferencing deliver classes, Spanish learners can acquire the language almost as effectively as if they traveled to a Spanish speaking country.
