Repetition: A key to master Spanish

Wanna master Spanish? Think of this: How does a good soccer player become an expert? What does a basketball player do to learn to master the ball? How does someone get a good body in the gym? Here is one of the keys: Repetition.

Repetition will make you a master

Repetition will give you the mastery you need to learn Spanish. Just like a sportiest, when he wants to be better at moving a bat or to control a ball with his feet, he needs to do the same movements over and over until he does whatever he aims to achieve, perfectly.

If you want to become fluent in Spanish, you need to make a lot of repetitions in Spanish, but here’s something very important that you need to have in mind: I’m not talking about repeating things like a parrot, instead of that, I want you to repeat whatever you listen in Spanish many times.

Key point:Repeat what you listen. So, if you listen to a Spanish audio, listen to it many times, repeat that audio many times.

Why do I need repetition so much?

Think about your native language, how many times, since you were a baby, have you heard the future tense, the past tense or the present tense?

How many times have you heard the same idioms since you were a kid? Or how many times have you heard the house vocabulary, the parts of the body or the colors in your mother tongue?

The truth is: You’ve heard these things so many times that you’ve mastered English or whatever your native language is.

If you want to master Spanish, you have to do the same, you need to listen to Spanish many times. You have to repeat what you hear countless times! This way, Spanish will become easy to understand; whenever you hear a word or expression, you will identify it and understand it instantaneously!


I wanted to do this lesson for you because sometimes,people get caught on repeating the pronunciation of vocabulary words, I’m not saying this is wrong, but think about this: Instead of that, babies listen to their parents saying the same things over and over and they end up talking like native speakers.

I want you to do the same, hear the same things, many times. If you do this, you will become a master in Spanish, just like you did with your mother language.
