It’s best if you try and make a lesson plan for yourself.
If you try to do too much at once, you will explode. But if you set clear and realistic goals, it becomes much easier.
I would say to start with beginner Spanish. I find Study Spanish to be very useful for structured learning of the basic concepts. And youtube Spanish lessons are helpful for pronunciation and practicing with listening.
Their lesson plans also come with quizzes and the ability to make flashcards which is helpful.
It would also not hurt to try Duolingo for Spanish to help you form sentences and get used to conjugation.
It would also be very useful to try Memrise for Spanish. It’s an app that helps you build your vocabulary for any language.
And WordReference makes a great Spanish dictionary. And www.linguee.es is useful for seeing how verbs or expressions are used in practice with side-by-side translations.
And if you’re not very confident in your reading abilities, you can try finding various poems online, or news articles, or children’s books. All in Spanish. The International Children’s Digital Library is a great source of online reading material in various languages directed towards children so they’re usually very easy to read.
Your goal is to just move forward. If you keep yourself organized in some way, the sense of impending doom from all the chaos tends to dissipate.
Thanks so much! I do use Duolingo and Rosetta Stone.
