The best way to learn to speak it fluently would probably be to take a Spanish class. However, there's also tapes you could buy if you went looking at your local bookstore. I bought a Spanish tape before, and while I have completely forgotten most of it, it seems a reasonable way to learn at your own pace.

My boyfriend is Mexican, and learned English BY HIMSELF. He still messes up a few words but I think It's cute. So I would recommend if you want to learn a new language than I suggest you take a class.

Pretty much, no matter what you do, you're going to have to pay a hundred of hundreds of dollars. I just finished my Spanish class in college, and I found it easy, probably only because I already learned most of the conjugation of verbs in my high school French classes. It probably would have been hard if I did it on my own. there's no way to know if you're verbs are correct or if you're using a sentence in the right context. You should find a book, and a workbook and study the book, then do the activities in the workbook. It's the best way to do it instead of learning by yourself and unknowingly making millions of mistakes.

Good luck!

The best way to learn a new language, as everyone else said, is to take a class. Spanish is my mother tongue so if you need any help once you start learning just pm me!

Personally, I think the quickest way to just learn how to speak the language is being immerged in that country. If you want to learn correct grammar and writing and all that, a class. But, if you just want to speak it fluently, take a trip to Spain. When kids move to my school from a Spanish country, they usually pick up fluent english in a matter of months. Plus, then you usually don't have an accent.

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

One way that helped me with french, was I would buy a movie and play it in french with subtitles in spanish for me. But you can do the say in spanish with subtitles in english.
You can also start off learning the alphabet, and if you want start reading books for little kids, start with the easy onces and move up.
Good Luck.!
