Learning Spanish (17 respuestas)

What are some good resources to be able to learn to read basic Spanish? Mainly just well enough to read it and get the basics.
I can already read and write a little Italian, would that make it easier or harder for me?

I'd say easier. Italian, just like most romance languages, have a very similar vocabulary. Italian is especially similar.

I don't think that reading italian makes it any easier, but in the other hand, speaking italian makes it WAY more easier because the pronunciations are very close (I'd say that italian and spanish are the closest pronunciations to classic latin). Now, I don't really know about books for learning spanish, but if you want to practice, we can be of help. You can also try to read some books in spanish. Like, Don Quixote, is it a thing in america as well, right?

Juat read a book with a dictionary at hand, that's how i learnt english (actually by playing pokemon with a dictionary by my side)

I think that the book idea is great, but I don't think Don Quixote is a good start (1000 pages, medieval spanish, etc). It's actually quite hard to read, even for a spanish speaker. It's like practicing english with A Tale of Two Cities. "La Tregua" by Mario Benedetti (famous uruguayan author) is an all-time classic in the spanish literature, and it's not that long (200 pages maybe). But as a chilean, I strongly encourage you to try some chilean books to practice, like "Juana Lucero", by D'Halmar (150~ pages), or "Donde Mueren los Valientes", by Manuel Rojas (80 or 100 pages). Argentinian literature is also very special.

Fuck yeah Borges.

12 : Nameless@Passing through the lobby [CL] (181.225.*.*) : 12/05/16(thu)20:55:21 ID:2+JQmhoF0

Everyone should read motherfucking Borges.

Well, today my English teacher told the classroom that the most "pure" spoken Spanish (ie. closer to its roots) is NOT from Spain, but from Perú. Weird, isn't it?

14 : Nameless@Passing through the lobby [CL] (* : 13/05/16(fri)00:14:20 ID:/kYdDYXE0

Spaniards ruined Spanish.

15 : Nameless@Passing through the lobby [CL] (152.173.*.*) : 13/05/16(fri)00:19:42 ID:wxPDajgQ0

That's a pretty common oppinion, but I don't really share it though. As a matter of fact, Peruvian spanish is actually quite hard to catch for a foreigner (I've heard this before). I think the most pure Spanish is in Mexico. Not the southern... slang... spanish, but the neutral mexican accent from the D. F. (the one from the dubs).

I've always felt chileans and mexicans have the best spoken spanish as long as they're speaking in their most neutral tone.

Chilean spanish before "coa" (that awful slang culiao) was pretty decent, for example:

Largo Viaje 1/8 - Pelicula Chilena (9:30)

sometimes we get to talk like that. Like, in presentations and such.
