    I’ve learned Spanish about a year. Started from taking courses in college, but I felt frustrated right away. Then I found this course without difficult grammar and writing skills, mostly focusing on speaking. And that’s exactly what I was looking for! The most important thing of learning languages is knowing how to speak and using them to communicate with people.
