“Confidence comes not from always being right, but from not fearing to be wrong.” -Peter T. Mcintyre

Are you just beginning the Learn Spanish Challenge? Go to Day 1.

Although your Spanish knowledge may not be extremely high at this point, it is important that you be confident in your Spanish knowledge. I love this quote because I learned this the hard way as I was learning Spanish. When I was nervous and afraid of making a mistake, I would stutter and stumble a lot. When I spoke with confidence I did much better. I certainly made mistakes and learned from them, but I spoke with clarity and confidence. Don’t be so afraid of making a mistake in Spanish that you avoid success.

As Dave explained in the video, today’s Spanish lessons are a review of what you have previously learned. This is the final unit of the Basic Needs Section 1. There is a reason that “Additional Practice” was put into the course. We want to put what you learn into your long-term memory. We want you to remember what you’ve learned. Repetition leads to retention.

On a different note, I am looking for guest bloggers who will post a few sentences or a paragraph about what they’ve learned and how they feel after each day of the Learn Spanish Challenge. Email me at jake(at)spanishprograms.com and I’ll give you more information. Please put “Interested in Guest Blogging” in the email subject line. Since there are new people beginning the Learn Spanish Challenge each day, your thoughts and feelings will be helpful to them.

These videos are being posted on the blog under the category “Learn Spanish Challenge”. You can also watch the videos on our YouTube channel, and I post them daily on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Be confident. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes.
