I’m assuming by your choice of the nature of this book that it may be your first foray into language learning. As such, I felt that it was appropriate for me to take some time to explain some things about language learning in general, as well as the Spanish language in particular. Don’t worry, this won’t take a long time. All it takes is a collection of observations that I’ve made about language learning and Spanish itself.
The first thing that I always hear from people trying to learn a new language is that it’s overwhelmingly difficult or that they’re simply not cut out for it for this reason or that. That’s essentially a total lie. Our brains are hardwired for language.

Most polyglots will agree that the single best way to learn a language is through the concept of immersion. Why? Let me explain.
Back in the olden days, we had to attach words to concepts. A tree - the tree - isn’t actually finitely a tree. It’s simply a part of being that we have called a tree.

The reason I’m telling you this is because English and Spanish are, unfortunately, not from the same language family. English is a Germanic language, descending from the West Germanic languages. However, the fact that the United Kingdom is extremely close to both Spain and France and the heavy involvement of the Normans in England in the Middle Ages, there are quite a few similarities.
So, let’s get started!
