A simple way to pickup on on Spanish is to learn in a conversational manner by talking with people who speak Spanish fluently. Ask the people who know Spanish, if they would give you a few minutes to help you learn, and try to carry on a conversation the best you can, without worrying if your saying it right or wrong. Many will appreciate that your trying to learn, and feel happy that you are interested in their language. A tip that can help you learn with them, is to ask about the immediate physical items that are around you. Example, point to objects, tables, chair, computer, etc, and ask how to say it in Spanish. Learn like a child, i.e. don't worry about all of the grammar or if your are doing it perfectly, just have fun, and enjoy the process.
