      Immersion anyway you can get it.... Living in another country, Rosetta Stone or online classes...

      My favorite advice? Learn some jokes in the language.

      Once you understand the humor, you're more than halfway there.

    It's best to live in the country where the language is spoken, and immerse yourself in it: Read, write, watch TV, speak. That's how I did it in a relatively short time.

    hmm well in the case of Spanish a habenero or two might do the trick but if that doesn't work and you have a tongue left to speak with there isn't much like a good old fashion immersion in any language that will force your brain to rewire itself for the new language out of survival instinct.  It also helps to think of new words as clothing in a wardrobe.  Instead of trying to make your English speaking words fit a new context you can go shopping at the store of words and grammar and find a whole new way of expressing yourself and tailoring the accent so that you meld in with the scenery.

    Necessity is the mother of invention...

    Being immersed in a situation where no one speaks any language you already speak. Through fits and starts, you will learn very, very quickly.
