Don’t want to leave your house? Just listen to music!
Listening to Spanish Music

They are all some of Latin America’s most popular and talented singers, and by simply listening to their music, along with so many other talented Latin American artists, you can become fluent in no time! You don’t have to limit yourself to boring text books and classes anymore… Just choose your favorite Latin artist, charge your Ipod, and you’re good to go! Studies show that listening to music, preferably music related to a subject of interest, more than doubles the brain’s ability to retain new and useful information. So give it a try! Listen, if music isn’t your thing, you can always resort to the internet.
Surfing the Web

Don’t stop with just the internet, you can also become more fluent in Spanish by reading.
Do you like to read? Reading is a very effective method to enhance your Spanish speaking abilities. By reading materials such as books, magazines, and even newspapers, you can easily learn to write, as well as speak, Spanish fluently. Most major newspapers and magazines, as well as books, typically have a Spanish version, so finding materials shouldn’t be difficult. In the case that you are unable to find materials, simply go online and read online Spanish-language publications of sources such as Univision or CNN. While reading is a great method to enhance your Spanish speaking skills, watching TV can also be helpful!
Watching TV can also be helpful when learning to speak Spanish fluently.

While watching TV is quite entertaining, Spanish-language broadcasts allow you to hear the language in various dialects, while also being spoken fluently and correctly. So grab some popcorn, your favorite beverage, and turn on the “tube”!
