Part 1: Becoming Fluent in a Foreign Language Fast by Using the News—Learn Spanish

For most people, reading or listening to the news is part of their typical daily routine. They listen to the evening news to watch the weather forecast or to find out what is going on in their area that day. They buy newspapers to read about local politics.

Did you know that you can also use the news media to become fluent in a foreign language fast? For instance, reading newspapers can help you speak Spanish better.

One way to learn Spanish is to subscribe to a Spanish language newspaper. You can also get information on how to study Spanish through your local library. 
The clerks will be able to provide you with the contact information for the newspapers, so that all you have to do is get in touch with them and choose your newspapers.

Once you get your first issue in Spanish, you can try reading the articles to improve your Spanish. You might have problems at first, but don't give up learning such a beautiful foreign language yet. 
Use a translation tool such a Google translator to get the gist of the article in Spanish. Whenever possible, find out about the story through other sources as well.

See if what you understand of the articles as you try to learn Spanish matches what you find out in your own language. 
Sometimes, the perspective is different, and this causes a discrepancy between the two stories. This only makes reading in a foreign language and becoming fluent more interesting. It helps you learn Spanish on a whole different level.
