I'm from UK, not sure if that's relevant, but I want an app that would help a complete beginner learn Spanish from scratch. Anyone able to offer some advice?

Also I'm on Android so would require and app from Play store, not apple store.

Cheers in advance.

    I have a GCSE in German but had my school taught Spanish I'd have taken it. I did take to German very quickly.

    Rosetta Stone is expensive but easily the best for learning a new language.

    Ye that is something I've heard brilliant reviews about, I want to avoid cost, at least to start with, if I can.

    Duolingo seems like a good option.

    What you guys reckon is the quickest time you can learn a language fluently if you put alot of effort in? 3 months?

    I consider it rude when people do that in a shop :joy: Worst thing is, it can happen in Welsh and even though I'm born and bred in Wales I literally have no idea what's going on :D

    Rosetta Stone is helping me learn French and Spanish. Great but expensive,if you really want to learn it then buy it.

    If you want to be completely fluent it will take much longer than that. If you're looking to be able to hold basic conversation, then that time frame is feasible.

    Duolingo is an excellent resource, but you may want to look to other sources to learn more complex grammar and conjugations.

    French is a pain in the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ though. Had it for 8 years at school and I still suck at it :joy:

    Starting with English?

    A lot is two words.
    Bucket list is two words.
    Single digit numbers should be spelled out.

    This by far. I already knew a lot of Portuguese because growing up my best friend was Brazilian, but it just helped me cement my understanding and my fluency even more.

    Like SupaNoodle said though, it gets very pricey but well worth it if you really want to learn. :)

    @Worm yeah probably, and I am American but my story is extremely complicated. :joy:
    I've stated it many times though, and yes my wife is Brazilian, not me. :)

    i started learning Spanish out of interest, and only recently.. started with Duolingo, it was "ok", but i didn't like the content much. So i joined interpals and got connected to couple of ppl.. that helped alot because once you're on good term with your peer, you could jump to skype or any form of voice conversation.

    i've also found couple of good channels on youtube and their content was interesting..

    and one last thing to add, BBC had a program, can't remember the name, but it was an interactive webpage, you might wanna look at it.
