Default Learning Spanish

I always wanted to learn Spanish but never had the time to do so. Now it seems that I have some spare time and I would love to put it to good use. So I would be grateful if any one could give me some information regarding any school offering Spanish language course

Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone software are both expensive. Michael Mann may have 8 hour rapid learning. Thing is everyone's learning style is different. I live in California, where a lot of Hispanic people live and hence it's easy to pick up the language. As I maintained before, immersion would be the key but the thing about Spanish is since it's widely spoken there are lot of famous movies that can be watched in captioning/subtitles. Also there are many language exchange online websites like cafemocha or skype related guru-pupil course. Hope it helped.

You can go to Brac University, which will also be very convenient for you since its close to your office.
I've done half of Beginner stage from Brac couple of years back.
Unfortunately, that was my second attempt at learning spanish, first being in Sydney, which I didnt continue after Stage 1.
NSU and other unis also offer the course I think.

If you end up going to DLC, let me know how it is.

I've found changing the settings of facebook, skype, e-mail, google etc from english to another language very helpful in building vocabulary. Zeeshan is right, immersion is key (which is hard in Dhaka!) and so you should expose yourself to Spanish as much as possible.

See if your Dhaka cable TV operator shows TVE (www.tve.es). Mine did. And I used to watch the movies on there at night. And the presenters for their programs are always Hot Mamacitas! Although on the Italian channel (www.rai.it) they're even hotter!

The Italians apparently have a fetish for turning fashion models into TV presenters!

Watch Dora the explorer and Handy Manny like me, and you'll learn spanish in no time...

"come on vamonos(let.s go!) , everybody let's go, come on, let’s get to it.
I know that we can do it."

" Uno, Dos, Tres, Cuatro, Cinco, Seis, Siete, Ocho, (Neuve)
Hop up jump in,
Come on let’s go
Hop up jump in
Si vamanos (yes, lets go!)
Hop up jump in
Don’t move too slow – keep up!
Let’s get to work
Muy rapido! (quickly!) "

PS. Just so no one get's the wrong idea and everyone's clear, I don't watch dora the explorer or handy manny, I only see these coz my little sister watches them and I'm usually there in the room. My interest in these shows are purely for learning spanish, I don't enjoy them...okay maybe I do...but just a bit...
