People learn to converse in a second language through acquisition, that is by using the target language in a variety of situations. Useful activities in acquiring Spanish or English are principally role-play and practice conversations. These, along with cultural orientation, create an enjoyable and challenging learning environment. The ultimate goal for any individual acquiring a second language is to communicate as effectively, or nearly as effectively in that language, as his/her native language.
The initial communication in a foreign language, in a real life situation, is an indication of the speaker’s abilities. Can he/she communicate effectively? Can he/she understand what is being said? If one has not engaged in practice conversations and communication strategies beforehand, attempting to communicate can be disconcerting. Practice, repetition, and persistence will dramatically improve one’s ability to converse.
Computer programs and other computer based language software seem to be popular, or at least advertised and guaranteed as the fastest way to learn a language. At best, pre-packaged language software is only a practice tool that cannot recreate the experience of practicing and conversing with individuals in real situations, or replace the knowledge and experience of a language instructor.
Spanish and English are the two most widely spoken languages in the World, after Chinese. Spanish is spoken by more than 350 million people and is the most studied foreign language in the United States. Improved communications through air travel and internet, unprecedented immigration, and increased trade make effective communication in Spanish and English a skill that is as important today as the ability to operate a computer.
Communicating in another language can be immensely rewarding, and it can open doors to endless opportunities. Business negotiations, fantastic travel experiences, and new ways of looking at life and other cultures are open to those who can communicate effectively.
Although conversational ability is the desired goal of most, Fusion Interamericas does offer other Spanish and English services. These are explained in more detail by clicking on the links on this page.
