    It took a while I am still learning but I know enough I speak spanish had 3 years of french and a little bit Korean and in the process of trying to learn a different African language but the only thing with Spanish is there are different dialects my friend speaks another way and she makes in fun of me for speaking another way if that makes sense.like there are mexican puerto ricans salvadoreans and things are spoke different.she is like are you still speaking that way...so there is so much to learn. You will get there just ask your husband to help you

    I speak 4 languages including English and Spanish. The best way to learn a new language BY FAR is via immersion.... You're ahead of the game because you're immersed with native speakers. We learn language via context so try to pay as much attention when the family is speaking to each other - you'll be surprised how fast you can pick up words, then phrases and sentences. Youll derive meaning via context and repetition. Resist the urge to translate everything back into English.... It only slows down your learning. So when you say or think of a Spanish word, think of the image that corresponds to it... Rather than the English translation. Cover the house with stickies labeling each object in Spanish - no English! Keep a journal in Spanish... Just to practice.

    If you want some kind of online program you should check out LiveMocha... It's free and should be good for very introductory words and phrases.

    thanks ladies!! abd sticky notes sound like a Great idea. I'll admit, i Do take time trying to translate Every word & feel like its slowing me down.. i believe if i stick to a certain plan or 2, i Can be fluent..i know worda here & there but it would be Nice to defend myself a little more....practice Surely makes perfect :)
