Are you planning to learn the Spanish language? There are some easy ways and there are some heavy duty ways to learn any language, but there is one sure fire way which anyone can use and that is practicing to think in the language you wish to learn.
Strange but True
Most people translate with great difficulty what they want to say into the new language which makes them think that unless you are fluent in the language you cannot converse well. However, this is a myth. Actually, if you start practicing the new language in your mind before you speak, you would find that not only you would be able to converse easily, but also able to learn new words much faster.
The reason why thinking Spanish would help you learn Spanish faster and better is that you would start seeking the words you want to use. When you directly translate your wishes from your mother tongue to Spanish you would use only the words you know. However, when you start thinking in Spanish, you would realize what you need to know and look that word up. This is why your vocabulary would grow with relevant words words that you would need in your day to day conversation.
Speed Versus Quality
When you adapt this method to learning Spanish, you might not learn the language as fast as a crash course would teach you. However, whatever you learn through this method would be highly relevant to your needs and hence, you would be able to speak much better because your vocabulary increases with those words that you need not the words that are taught to you by the course.
Since each person has specific needs (a doctor uses certain words, a visitor uses certain words, a professional uses certain words, etc) and when you are able to learn the exact words that translate your thoughts into words, you become fluent in the language with a quality vocabulary base. The speed might not be as much as you would like, but the results would be excellent.

2. Repetitiveness every word that you add so painstakingly to your vocabulary would spring back to your mind at the earliest opportunity and such repetitiveness would make your language more fluent since the flow of words would be easier which every instance.
3. Accurate wording your grasp of the language would very soon cover all the words that you need to express yourself because while thinking in that language just as in your mother tongue would egg you on to learn the most relevant-to-you words.
