If your long term Spanish goal is to have advanced Spanish skills you should do FSI. It is not "fun" but it is well worth it. It is a necessary step in the most efficient journey to advanced Spanish.



This Xs 1000.

My next language will be one of Portuguese, Russian or French. Either way, I will do all my heavy lifting with FSI/ DLI courses. I hear DLI Portuguese is better than FSI basic Spanish and if so, it must be one incredible course.

Es difícil pero vale la pena.

@lavengro & @James29
Thank you for the showing the confidence in the usefulness of FSI Basic Spanish. I'm doing a review of the other course. I'll start FSI as soon as I'm done with it (Probably end of this month). Just one last question about FSI Basic Spanish - I read in the other thread (FSI German: Too Old) that FSI German had too old vocabulary etc. Does Spanish course suffer from the same?

@Brun Ugle
I think I should do the same too. After a couple of months of FSI, I should start watching Spanish TV shows and pick up El Principito and accumulate vocabulary.

The Spanish in FSI is totally fine. The "story line" is a bit dumb but the program and content are still first rate.
