Making flashcards may seem like an old-school idea (and it is), if you are studying with another person real flashcards are really useful to help you remember vocabulary. BUT they can also be made digitally through a variety of websites and apps.

I always encourage my English students to keep a notebook with them at all times, this way they can write down new words and phrases they see during their normal day and then study them at night or whenever. You can then take these words and make your own digital flashcards… read more

If you are interested in studying Spanish while you are in Buenos Aires you should consider getting a textbook from the University of Buenos Aires.  The textbooks are used by the Spanish program at the university and are really useful.

The Best Universities for Studying Spanish

October 21, 2014DSC01874

If you are studying Spanish on your own, at some point you should consider studying Spanish in a Spanish speaking country. I am convinced that being fully immersed in a language is the best way to learn it. What more efficient way to learn Spanish than studying half the day with native speakers and spending the other half of your day in the real Spanish speaking world. You can study Spanish practically every city in Latin America or Spain, but studying at a University can give you access to some of the best teachers. It also looks good on your resume… read more
