What is the best way to learn to speak the language?
I now have a 33% fluency in Spanish. I now know how to read it but saying it is a real challenge. In class we aren't allowed to have the volume up so we can hear the pronunciation. When I go home I turn it up but I am having trouble with understanding how they are saying it. I always get those questions wrong. It is really hard to understand the voice recording.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Newer users very frequently comment on lack of spoken comprehension. It comes with time. Understanding is harder than reading at first (and can remain so for a good while) in any language with a familiar writing system I think.
Practice, practice, practice! Stay on one lesson for a while and you'll definitely learn to understand the sentences in it.
