Speaking about the Spanish language, the language’s construction is similar to that of the English language. A few words are too simple that you can simply read it and guess its correct meaning. As you know, English is like the second language of every Indian. So if you know to read English, it will be easier for you to learn to read Spanish as well. It just requires the correct pronunciation. Starting with we have sites that provide us with the basics of the language, with an audio right next to the word. You can try to read the word and hear it to see if you have read it correctly or first hear it and then practice how to read it. Whatever suits you. You do not have to try to speak the Spanish accent. That is not what is required. Just try to speak it correctly, which isn’t quite a big task for us Indians.
