Traveling in Spanish is a great way to learn Spanish. You can travel anywhere in the world and you can practice your language skills while making new friends. It’s a win-win situation! But did you know that certain things make the whole experience even better? In the following paragraphs, we will present 10 of them:
Lived With A Host Family
Living with a host family is one of the best ways to learn about the culture of a country. You get to experience the local customs and traditions, as well as learn about their food, language, and way of life.
If you’re traveling in Spain it will be easy for you to find a host family. Many families have rooms available for travelers or are willing to put up travelers in their homes until they can find somewhere else to stay.
Mastered The Language Before You Traveled Abroad
One of the most important things you can do while traveling in Spanish is to master the language. You should begin learning a new language before leaving home and continue learning well after you return. Language learning is a lifelong process; it takes time to learn how to speak and write with fluency, so don’t expect that one week of classes will be enough. The only way to truly master a language is by immersion; if you want to quickly pick up Spanish, go live in Mexico City for six months!
Learned To Dance
Dance is a great way to meet people. Dance is a great way to learn a language. Dance is also an excellent form of exercise and good for the soul, so you can do it with confidence that you’re doing something good for yourself, too!
You don’t need to know how to dance at all. Many people think they’re not good dancers and will never be good at it. The truth is that everyone has some kind of rhythm; you just have to find yours. If you want a dance partner, go up to someone who looks like they’re having fun on the dance floor and ask if they mind if you join them.
Talked To Spanish People On The Street
You may prefer a guided tour for your first day or two in a new country, but after that, it’s important to start exploring on your own. This can be intimidating, especially if you don’t speak the language! But remember: just because they can’t understand you don’t mean they’re not willing to talk. Many locals love chatting with tourists and love being able to practice their English—especially if they get the chance to practice their Spanish at some point too!
Spent More Time Cooking In Our Homestay Kitchen
Cooking is a great way to practice your Spanish, as you not only have to converse with your host family while you’re cooking and eating, but also get to know them better by learning about their culture. Along with this, you can save money on food by making the most of what’s available in the kitchen. You will be able to learn about the local cuisine and see how it differs from what we eat here in America – which is pretty fascinating!
Tried To Pick Up The Accent
You can also try to pick up the accent by listening to the locals, watching local TV and movies, speaking with the locals (if you get a chance), or reading books in Spanish.
You can learn how to say basic greetings, such as “how are you?” and “thank you.” You will also be able to practice saying these phrases when you get back home, which can help with your Spanish fluency.
The more you speak Spanish with people who have an accent, the more their way of speaking will rub off on you.
Pushed Past Your Comfort Zone
If you are a picky eater, now is the time to push yourself out of your comfort zone. If there is one thing I learned on my travels, it’s that dinner conversations can be some of the most interesting and enlightening experiences! Get out from behind your comfort zone and try new foods. You may discover something you love or at least learn how to order food in Spanish so well that eating becomes easier for you. Either way, trying new foods will help open up opportunities for conversation when dining with locals or other travelers in Spanish-speaking countries.
Learned More Local Slang
I was in Spain for a long while, and I still had trouble understanding some of the slang words used by locals. If you are serious about learning Spanish, try to learn at least some of the local slang to make it easier to communicate with people who live there.
Watched More Spanish Television, Movies And Listened To Local Music
Read more Spanish newspapers, watch TV programs in Spanish and listen to music by Latin American artists. To help you gain a better understanding of the culture and language. I found that watching Spanish TV programs was very helpful in learning about local customs, traditions, and slang words.
Made More Friends On The Program, And Didn’t Spend As Much Time With People You Were Already Close Friends With At Home
Don’t be afraid to talk to new people and ask questions. Your goal isn’t just survival in Spanish; it should also be about learning from others’ experiences and understanding the culture. If someone asks you something in Spanish, it’s because they want you to learn something! Let them teach you what they know by answering their question or asking more questions of your own.
Don’t spend all your time with people you know from home—they won’t always be around, and meeting new people is one of the best parts of traveling abroad!
I hope this post has inspired you to get out there and try something new. You never know when that one thing might change your life, or at least make it more interesting!
