The Museum of Knowledge team is often asked by students, how can I improve my Spanish speaking skills? Speaking Spanish fluently is achieved more easily when students have gained good listening skills. Listening skills enable students to repeat dialogue and understand pronunciation.
Another important factor that determines how quickly students can improve their Spanish speaking skills is the ability of students to understand various accents, whether these are accents from South American, Central America or various parts of Spain. Every accent has a specific tone and students will gradually begin speaking with the dialect or accent that they hear on a regular basis.
Practice makes perfect and confidence will enable students to improve their Spanish speaking skills over time. For students who wish to improve their Spanish speaking skills at intermediate level, students of Spanish should aim to practice speaking the Spanish language for at least three to five hours per week in order to maximize their potential progress.
