This question was asked at http://www.quora.com/Spanish-language/How-can-I-start-to-learn-Spanish

 

I suggested to start off with free Spanish resources online for a couple of weeks, join some online groups, and start looking at Spanish movies or news where you know the content already and so can figure out what they may be trying to say.

But I suggest you get a good Spanish language program. Rosetta Stone is the most popular, but I don’t really recommend it. It is too pricey and the teaching method leaves a lot to be desired. If you have the money, Fluenz is probably the best. If you are on a budget, then Rocket Spanish is by far the best deal. You can look at a comparison of the different software at Best Spanish Learning Software: Reviews for You to Choose the Best One ( http://ebestlanguagelearningsoftware.com/best-spanish-learning-software/ )

From there you can really climb up the ladder to fluency, eventually speaking with native Spanish speakers online through Skype, real-time chats or other interactive programs.

What would you suggest?
