Three New Things
Wanting To Learn A Language?
Your second language is best learned between age 2 and puberty. Spanish can help you understand other languages better as well.
How Long Does It Take?
It takes about 2-3 years to be proficient but 4-10 years to be fully proficient. Based on who is teaching you and how much you are exposed to will change the time it takes to learn Spanish.
What Factors Affect Learning A Second Language?
Some factors are age, motivation, access to the language, personality, first language development, quality of instruction, and cognitive ability. If your brain has already grown then it will be harder to learn a new language because you are using a special part of your brain you haven't used before.
